Travel by Mule & Wagon
Last week, I spoke of what I’ve come to refer as the Bull ‘n Lime incident. That’s were a bull chased me onto my wagon pursuing Polly’s last flake of alfalfa hay.

Ever wonder how the hands look that grow your food? Then have a listen to Manual and Daniel explain why they’re not smooth and pretty … Also, there’s still time to get a piece of the Lost Sea Expedition, straight off the wagon, before it’s all over…
Traveling by mule wagon across the Great Plains, under what used to be a 1000-foot deep sea, it’s hard to imagine what the vanished marine inhabitants looked like. Still, given what I have on hand, one mule and some photos of a mosasaur skull, I’ll try. Today, we’ll look at the mosasaur’s head, in particuler, the structure of its mouth.

Also, if you’re wondering how far mule Polly has dragged her wagon in the 13 months we’ve been on the road then click here for a look at the wagon atlas…
It’s sometimes hard to keep up with where mule Polly has pulled the Lost Sea wagon. We’re crossing the Lost Sea, after all, right? To guide us, mule Polly rely on old fashioned paper maps. Nope, you won’t find any of those digitally sterile online computer maps here. Rather, you’ll find a photograph of the wrinkled atlas that’s bounced through hail, snow, dust devils, herds of antelope and three pickled prairie shrimp.
