The Silk Road connected the people of our ancient world. It encompassed a series of trade routes upon which merchants traveled to sell and exchange their goods. These merchants were immersed in new cultures and languages, experienced new ways of living, and met people they never forgot. Although trade was the driving force behind their expeditions, the travelers became forever changed through their journey on the Silk Road. I’m Scott, I’m 24 years old and I’m attempting to embark on my own Silk Road journey. I will post an item for trade and if you want to offer something in exchange, send me an email with a description and a picture.

Today I journeyed in the freezing cold Utah weather over to Leanne's house in Sandy, Utah. Leeann is a kind lady. She is a mother of six kids. Even though Leeann looks like she is twenty years old, I felt as if she was my loving mother. She offered me a turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce. Her house just felt so christmasy.
We were both very satisfied with our trades. Leeann got the Star Wars game with all of its multiple functions. I got a Sleep Number therapeutic pillow. She said she bought this pillow with love for her husband, but before he could use it, he decided he didn't want it. To Leanne's dismay, it was too late to return the pillow. Although she thought it was bad luck, we can now clearly see it was destiny. Leeann now has become a part of my Silk Road journey. Thanks Leeann! This pillow is fit for a king or a queen, but it could end up under your head. The pillow can't be used as a door bell, a snow shovel, or a float tube. It is also not water proof, but you could take it to the beach. If you are interested in owning this brand new pillow, your emails/comments offering a trade are welcome.
PS Good dreams are promised with this pillow. I saw it on the news.

You're going to have to wait a little longer to see what James traded me. Maybe you can tell from the picture and maybe you can't. Tomorrow I'll post what it is and I'll put it up for trade!
P.S. Did you know that over 40% of the pilgrims who attended the first Thanksgiving died from starvation and exposure that winter? I didn't, but now I do and you do too. It's a true fact I read it on the internet or something.

|After, we decided to go for a ride and look at all the beautiful fall leaves. Silly Robert was being stubborn and wouldn't put on his seat belt. I told him that he was old enough to know better.|
|I needed to purchase some dress pants for my job and Robert insisted on accompanying me. Robert did get grumpy though, when they had no pants his size.|
|We ended the day building a piece of furniture. Robert told me that before the army he used to work in construction management. I'm going to deeply miss Robert. Although he rarely talks, he is a faithful friend.|
P.S. Robert tells some funny jokes
