Today we are headed home. Another fun "Road Trip" has come to an end.

We had breakfast at the hotel, and are loaded up and trucking. Let's take bets on how long before we make a stop.

We learned a lot on this trip. We learned about the stupid camel thing, that the Little Dipper is fondu and not ice cream, how to find the bull, you can park for a short time in a handicap spot and not get ...

Well, as expected, it's raining...... Boy do I love football, especially in the rain. NOT............. We got in the car and Charles asks if he needs the map. Without hesitation Stew handed Charles the map. Stew is having a "thought process". Now that's scary....

That's a new one. ...

We decided against eating at the cafeteria and went to the recommended burger spot. Bull City Burger and Brew was the place to be. They have grass ...

... little fear of "bush fires" here as apparently it rains too much in summer. Typically there are short thunder and lightening storms during the evening with heavy downpours of rain which last 5-10 minutes. It has been hot - consistently in the high 90's with humidity around 70% so we have tried not to stay outside too long but to be in air conditioned areas. How have we spent the last six days? Obviously spending time with Cam when he isn't at work. ...
