November 9, 2008

Hi Everyone,

Last weekend we drove from Jackson Hole, WY to Salt Lake City, UT in one day. It was a long drive over high mountains. I had fun taking pictures along the way because the scenery was beautiful.

We've spent the week here in Salt Lake City and, on two occasions, walked from the campsite to downtown and back (1.8 mile each way). Then, in the middle of the week, it snowed. Chanti's little paws kept slipping in the snow when she went out. Below are a couple of pictures of our RV in the snow. It was cool and we immediately put on Christmas music.

The last three days were spent at the XanGo 6th Annual Convention at the Salt Palace. There were 10,000 distributors in attendance. What excitement! XanGo, in 6 years, has sold $1.5 billion dollars of the mangosteen juice. It was the first company to bring this super fruit from South East Asia to market and is the category creator.

Now, the company just released its Glimpse skin care line -- and, again, is the first company to create a clean, green skin care product with no toxins or harmful chemicals -- another category creation. The skin care line contains the mangosteen fruit with its high anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. We are proud to be associated with this great company.

Today (Sunday) we experienced what it really means to "take a day of rest" here in Utah. Almost everything was closed -- including our favorite lunch stop, Subway. While parking spots were hard to find around the Convention Center during the week, no problem today!

We expect to leave here on Tuesday and head slowly back to California via Las Vegas. Will tell you more in our next blog update. Until then, have no regrets and continue living the life you love.

Jerry and Mary
