Spent the day today here in camp. Cooking, cleaning and watching a double header on tv. We had another HUGE storm again tonight. Two nights in a row there have been tornado warnings here and they had to take everyone from the tent sites and have them sit in the basement of the camp office. We watched it for hours. Storms here are definitely not like the ones we have in California. Tomorrow we head for Indiana!!! Look out cousins, here we ...
We drove into Chicago today. Boy are the highways here confusing!!! They tried to hide it from us, but we found it anyway!

We came back to camp and Mike decided to detail the Jeep a bit. I, on the other hand, just enjoyed the view. I think you can understand why ;-)
... her FREE in Colorado (my mission)!! The cursive string that makes B = Barbara. As a whole it’s also a reminder of the calling that I felt to make this whole trip happen and the true meaning of life. The red shading probably hurt the worst…like someone scratching a bad sunburn! As I laid on the table, all I could tell myself was…if mom could endure all the pain and trauma with cancer (chemo/radiation, etc) and a ...
