This morning Kathy asked me once again where I wanted my ashes spread and, to be funny, I said, "I want my ashes spread at the half-way point on Buck & Doe Road." When she asked where the hell that was I confessed I had traveled that lonely, dirt road, only once. And then we both laughed at the random absurdity of it all, and she added this: "Well, laugh away Buster, because that's where I'm putting you," and I laughed, because, ultimately, what the hell do I care where my ashes are spread?

Besides, if someone wants to visit me out there they are in for a hell of a scenic drive! And the Hualapais might make a buck or two on flat tire repair. So, it's a win-win. Here's my original travelogue, posted four years ago today.
