Yesterday we were driving to the VM to get some lunch. For those of you who have been gone from Southern for a while, University Drive is blocked off because they're putting in a roundabout. So traffic is detoured behind the school on Industrial Drive. I was on the phone with Andrea, so I was a little distracted, and I started turning left onto Apison.
He started pointing to the right. I didn't know why.
"We're going to the VM," he said.
"I know," I said, turning on my left blinker.
"The VM is to the right," he said.
"No, it's not!" I insisted.
Oh dear. I think Ben will be directing this trip.
Look at all the people I get to visit!
July 28 - St. Louis, MO
I haven't seen my grandparents and cousins for years. And Natalie is driving the other way across the country and we're meeting in the middle!
July 29 - Lincoln, NE
That's my cousin, Jeanette. Family resemblance, eh? And I couldn't find a picture of Dylan Wren, but I did once ask a tag question about him on my leg.
July 30 - Camp Ida-haven?
Not sure if we'll make it to this stop or not, since it's 19 hours away from Lincoln. But we figure it'd be fun to hit up as many camps as we can. Friend here include Phillip Sherwood, Carl Canwell, and Kevin Ekvall!
July 31-August 1 - Hayden Lake, ID
I can't wait to see all these people that I love! And Camp MiVoden! Oh man..I'll also be seeing Ben Foote and Nick Livanos here too, but since they might be joining us for the rest of their trip, I'm not posting their pictures. I'm also running out of time and would like to start this journey.
August 2 - Spokane, WA
I love Emily Wilkens so so so much! It's been far too long since we've connected.
August 3 - Sisters, OR
I worked with Keith Bowman in Campus Ministries for a year, but apparently this was never documented in photographs. Nevertheless, I'm excited to see him at Big Lake - one of the top ten camps in the country!
August 4 - Wawona, CA
Andrea will be out visiting Donnie and Rachel. We're both super excited to check out Yosemite - and our vacations perfectly collide. Couldn't have planned it better! Hope some other Wawona friends are still around as well.
August 5-7 - Loma Linda, CA
I'm so excited to see this place!
August 9 - Albuquerque, NM
More camping. Or maybe driving through the night.
August 11 - Collegedale, TN
Ah...back to my temporary home for a few days until I head back up to Michigan.
