Hi this is Jill starting off the first blog entry for the trip. Thanks to Sallyjawea for providing some of the details....(we care about accuracy....this is not a tabloid)

Fr. Howard picked up Dad and John and they were on the road around 9:00. Fr. Howard was a little early (Dad loves that and that is something that we can't always provide) so they were able to visit a little before they left. Sallyjawea gleaned two particularly interesting bits of information from their conversation. (Tam said Mom got a picture before they left so hopefully we can post it tonight)

1. Mdewakanto means Mystic Lake
2. Shakopee means Little Six

Sounded like she was going to do a little research on that.

Dad called a little later to get the blog started. He is stepping into character referring to themselves as Lewis and Clark. John is going to try to post tonight.

Can't wait to hear the updates. I am having a lazy day after all the travel and have been checking out some of the history and am jealous that I am not there. (John take some notes so you can give us the tour at a later date.)

Love to Everyone, Winema Eatdarnnearanything (winema is the title for a female native american chief )
