Alone long wait single woman RV

Arches National Park Entrance Station → Moab

I waited for hours in the cold rain- several cars stopped for me, but all were heading to Moab (south) rather than my direction, north. The spot was less than ideal, and I stayed for too long. Eventually, I decided to get a ride down to Moab and try from there- Leftie gave me a ride the few miles into town, and I warmed up a bit before walking back out to the highway,

Moab → I-70 and Hwy 24

Ellie turned around to pick me up and she was amazing! She drove 30 miles out of her way to drop me in a good spot, ensuring I'd only have to wait for one ride (rather than two). She was just returning to Colorado after doing humanitarian work on the Mexican/Texas border. We talked about border-related activism, spirituality, approaching fear, and utopic world visions. A lovely ride.

I-70 and Hwy 24 → Fruita, UT

I had been dropped off in the middle of the desert, no facilities for 40+ miles in any given direction. The sun was on the verge of setting. Six cars passed me in 50 minutes- the seventh stopped. Joan and Mike were from Minnesota and were edging toward the end of their road trip. Nice people, I gave them recommendations for what to do in the area, and we discussed history and travel.

Lake Powell → Hwy 89

A Navajo woman named Rose picked us up while we were hiking out and gave us a short ride to the highway. She works at the lake cleaning boats. A very kind woman!

Hwy 89 North

A family of five picked us up in their RV! It was very cush. They were super nice, had three kids ages 13, 6, and 4. They were on vacation from SLC. They were heading to a slot canyon so they dropped us off on a stretch of desert highway.

hwy 89 → Kanab

Vee picked us up after a two hour wait in the desert! She was from Page, AZ heading to Fredonia, AZ and the most direct way to get there was through Utah. She talked about hunting with a bow and arrow, living in a rural area, and her family.
