We are all trying to wrap things up before we go off on our big adventure! I am seeing if I can get the blog entries going and make sure we know how to upload pictures and video and all that before we take off. 

We tried to roof bag on the car last night. Jeriann drive it to church and back and it did not go flying down the road so that is a good first test for the trip to come.

I am making a list of things to pick up in the next two days like:
1) iPod speakers
2) Bluetooth headset (where did mine go??)
3) Dog food (not for us; though Brady likes it; but to keep the dogs supplied while we are away)
4) GPS case (gotta stop using the box it came in)
5) AAA Books for South Dakota and Wyoming since we will be spending the most time in those states.

What a great trip! You will have loads of fun, and knowing you three, you will make each day, one to celebrate. Have a safe journey and don't worry about the dogs because I will sober up every few days to feed and water them. best wishes and love, DB

Day 1 of your trip
Hi, you 3 dear ones, Before we got cut off I could understand that you had a great day and are in a cozy camp sight. I am happy your motor/oven baked a good dinner for you. I'm sure it was not as great as Jackie's delicious dinner for us last evening. I'm having the left over dinner she gave me and it is just as delicious.
Have great fun. It did my heart good to see how joyful you were as you waved bye to me and Bandit and Haley. They are taking good care of me. goodnight, from the three of us

From the Andolina Fam to the Brady-Hirsh Fam
Wow! Sounds like you're having an exciting and adventurous
trip already. I can't wait to see all the pictures when you return.
And, Brady, you better come see me and tell me all about
your favorite part of the trip along with the coolest pictures
I know you'll be taking. Don't forget to write down all the funny
things you say during your vacation so we can read them and
laugh, laugh, laugh together when you get home! Love and hugs to all of
you from all of us. Love, Maribeth

Day 4 of your adventure
Great to hear of the fun you three are having! Did Brady catch any fish yesterday in the pond at your campsite?
Sandra said she is excitedly keeping up with you on your blog.
Is Rovell your new 'best friend' whom you met traveling from the East Coast to San Francisco? He commented on your blog.
Bandit, Haley and I are fine as we share your adventure through your phone calls and blog. I read the blog to them each day. DB

What was I thinking?
This is a p.s. to my previous note today. What was I thinking? I know who Rovell is! That is David's cousin Barry whom you are so excited to visit when you get to Minnesota. Dumb of me not to connect him with the name-Rovell. Jackie so lovingly speak that name when she mentions her family. db

Its me again
Now that we have good connection with our daily phone calls, I am not writing in the blog again. Since my computer is slow, I think my letters are not moving on and so I keep hitting 'post comment' repeating my messages. What a bore that is!
The doggies and I will just enjoy reading what others write. db

Great to read your progress
This vacation seems to me to be a great learning opportunity for Brady. It never ceases to amaze me how you two seem to have an inner guidance system leading you to make the best decisions concerning Brady.
My Human Resource friend said she felt the need to transfer from our store to one that did need a person who is fluent in Spanish since she could not communicate well with some of the employees about their health needs. If this trip leads you to more fully consider Spanish emmersion for Brady's first two years of school, that seems great to me.

Its such fun to just sit back and watch you two precious parents opperate! db
