We’ve been doing lots of traveling the last couple days. We left our “home” hotel in Oklahoma which I posted on the last blog post, and then we were in another town for two nights before realizing how much we need the hot tub still for healing so we moved to a hotel with a hot tub in a different town in Oklahoma.
The day in between the two days that we stayed at the first hotel after we started traveling, we went up to see the salt flats in northern Oklahoma. There is a salt lake up there that has about half the saltiness level of the ocean. The salt flats were pretty cool, but you couldn’t go out on them at this point. Apparently this is one of the few places where you can dig up hourglass shaped selenite. I thought that would’ve been pretty cool to have done, but they don’t start doing that until April. Because the military used to use the salt flats as a bombing location, they’ve only cleared certain areas of the salt flats of glass cylinders and rounds of ammo. Because of that, they don’t allow people out on all of that area, but just a certain area that they had cleared. It was a long drive to just go out on the lookout and not see much, but on the way home we saw a sign for Gloss Mountain so we went over to see that.
Gloss mountain was an area of red soil mesas. It was really pretty, but we couldn’t climb on it like we had been with the mountain climbing. They had a set of stairs that took you to the top of the mesa and there was a trail to walk around up on the top. You could see fissures in the rock along the edges, and large boulders had fallen on the ground below. I wasn’t too interested in riding a boulder down the side of the mesa so we stuck with the trail. The area is called gloss mountain because of all the selenite in the soil. It was really interesting that my body did not want me to touch the rocks. When I picked them up I didn’t feel good, and I tried it three different times just to be sure. The first time I just didn’t feel good, the second time my ears started ringing immediately, and the third time my ears started ringing but it took a couple seconds before it started. I just assume whatever was healing about the rocks that we had in Iowa probably wouldn’t be helpful anymore now that we’re out of mold and supertoxins. Unfortunately on the way home from gloss mountain, we drove through Watonga, which is a an awful, toxic place. That’s why we decided we need to go back to the hot tub because we need to get these toxins purged out.
We were debating as to where we wanted to try to head next being the hotels that we had scouted out before the storm both had water damage from ruptured pipes. We were planning to do some more exploring in Texas, but have decided to put that on hold for right now. Being the humidity in Oklahoma doesn’t seem to be a major problem, we decided to do some more investigating further east. Because I didn’t want to be tied to New Mexico if that ends up being a good option for us, we decided to make a quick trip over to get our mail in Carrizozo and a tote of things that I had at my cousins house in Albuquerque. We drove over seven hours yesterday, and did it again today. Amarillo it’s a tough place to find a hotel on a Saturday night around six when you’re a mold avoider because they’re either sold out or close to it and won’t let you check rooms.
The really cool thing that has come out of the last few days is that the strain in the relationship between our old mentor and us has been completely forgiven. We’ve decided to do coaching with Simcha again, and are really excited about that. Messaging with him on Facebook messenger the past few days has been like reuniting with a good friend.
