9:05am: Dark, dark times. We had a wheel break on the top of Lemmon Mountain in Tucson, Arizona. We are stranded...no one has come to rescue us...as you can see I have written this letter on a piece of leaf and have sent it via hawk, hoping by some miracle it will get to you. I will send a new leaf your way every hour to keep yee updated on our status.
10:30am: We have run out of bullets for hunting.
10:55am: Very poor health. All our oxen have died. Tis kinda cold. To keep warm, we huddle together in our only remaining potato sack.
11:02pm: Morale very very low. I try to keep things light by hitting rocks together for music.
12:02pm: While on a search for clean water, Mr. Seth tripped o'er the mountain and plunged to his death.
12:40pm: Miss Heather gave birth to a baby boy. I wish Mr. Seth could have seen him! They look remarkably alike! Like uncle like nephew!! That's the saying, right??!
1:50pm: Miss Heather has contracted typhoid and died.
2pm: Ms. Deenah is using her wheely leg (If you'll recall Miss Heather amputated her real leg because of dysentery) to wheel me and the baby the rest of the way through Tucson.
3:14pm: A hunter mistook Ms. Deenah for a bison and shot her in the head.
3:15pm: Haven't eaten in so long...bison meat...
3:16pm: I have eaten Ms. Deenah.
6pm: I carry the baby on foot the rest of the way through 10 west, towards yee ol' Los Angeles, my final destination. I have named it Seather, in honor of it's mother and uncle. Do I see signs in the distance, or does my brain trickith me? Ah my scurvy!!! I try to make them out: In and Out Burger, 101 North, Graumans Chinese Theatre...just a few...more...miles...
Oh Jeremiah! Will Seather and I make it???!!!
Stuff to do in the car:
Right before Tucson, our car hit 100,000 miles!
First morning in Tucson, Arizona!
Note: I am calling Seth Sethy so as not to confuse him with Mr. Seth, pictures on the left. Yes, there are two Seths in this picture.
Sethy and Marissa have three incredible dogs. From left to right: Bruce, Juno, Pipa.
We all fell instantly in love.
Late that day we drove up Lemmon mountain and hiked!! It was ridiculously beautiful.
Deenah and the Mountain
Sethy in the tree
Darcy on the Wall
Marissa and Sethy
Then we had lunch/dinner at Boca! We ate incredible tacos and I, Miss Darcy, decided in the moment that tacos are my new favorite food.
Then we took Tequila shots.
The next morning we said our goodbyes to Sethy and Marissa and the dogs, and continued on our way towards LA!
AND THEN WE IMMEDIATELY ATE SUSHI WITH BRI!!!
SO MUCH SUSHI!!!
IT'S 80 DEGREES IN LOS ANGELES!!
Well I made it. I have already found yee old day care center for Seather. I plan to leave him there A LOT while I focus on myself. I have optioned these letters I wrote to you over the last week into a feature film. Don't wanna jinx it but Daniel Day is interested in ALL THE PARTS. Anyway. I have to go now, I am about to drink my daily thimble of kombucha and probably go for a hike.
Love, Miss Darcy
