The Adventure Begins


We took off from Michigan today with the van filled to the top with things to help us with our adventures-wetsuits, flippers, bicycles, hiking boots, winter and summer clothes. Jack and pinhead were packed in the back seat and we all made the v-formation for our wintering in the south west. We are west of St. Louis for our first night. The only wildlife today were other birds flying south and a couple coyotes running in the field. We hope to get to Albuquerque on Nov. 4 in time to spend our 39th anniversary with Eric and Jamie. And so the adventure begins...

Hi Carlene,
This is Karen and I have a visitor in my room right now, Jacob Lifson.
He stopped by to say Hi during conferences, and we are checking out your blog.
Looks like you are having a wonderful time. I will be in Phoenix over Christmas - Maybe we can meet up!!
