We had an 11-hour drive time and we had a 4:45 am leave time.  We would also be having breakfast after we got on the road which doesn’t make sense to me.  And it kind of makes me angry at the same time to because as soon as I wake up, I am hungry and need to eat.  It doesn’t matter if it is 4:30 or 8:30, I need to eat something.  If we would just eat before we leave, we would probably save time because we have to stop in the middle of nowhere and get all this stuff out and eat.  Then wash everything and put it all back.  It is no easy chore for 16 people.  After a few hours, I asked when the hell we were eating breakfast.  I wish I could say soon after that we stopped but I think it was like an hour after that we finally stopped at 8:30am and had breakfast.  Little sleep the last 2 nights and the no sleep on the extremely bumpy truck, and no breakfast for 4 hours got me in a bad mood.  After I ate I was feeling better.  The day was long but not that bad.  I started a new book and read 100-pages and also managed to spend a few hours playing cards.  11-hours would suck in a truck but since you don’t have to drive or worry about anything, it isn’t that bad.  The only thing that sucks is that your whole day is wasted.  Camping somewhere in the town of somewhere.  We had dinner cooked for us tonight and it was ooohhh sssoooo tasty!  They brought us roast beef, veggie curry, roasted potatoes, and rolls in 4 big black kettles and we ate under a tiki hut.  We were told we were getting dessert too and it was chocolate brownies that would be coming about an hour later.  We eagerly waited for the brownies and they finally came and we tore into them with the quickness. This was only the 2nd time we have gotten dessert after a meal and it was soooo goooodd!!!
