Also fun story about Kansas and Oklahoma, we saw signs for Cracker Barrel and wanted to eat there together so we stopped in Kansas at one about 2:00pm and it just so happened that is was chicken cheese broccoli casserole night but it didn't start until 4pm. We asked the waitress if they had any ready by any chance and they didn't so we made an executive decision, get back in the truck and drive until we found a restraurant after 4pm. Sure enough outside of Oklahoma we were very happy and I got a surprise, because we were close enough to Texas apparently the Dr. Pepper is different down here (I think it has something to do with the sugar), but it was almost too sweet for me - which is suprising right!
And after the Daines put us up for the night after a long drive I said goodbye to Amy Lou after a great Alaskan adventure and 19 days with one great red truck - what a trooper. But I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat and AL you were a great road trip buddy! Miss you!

My dad was out hunting in Washington and this guy was so close!

It was so good to see everyone and it's so funny how the volume levels just rise when we get together - everyone catching up on missions, marriages, school, job, etc. and how much we still laugh when we get together! I'm so grateful for a group who actively invested in relationships with each other while we were in our program, and how hard we all work to stay in touch. Love you guys!

Tweed Street Crew - when you ride your bike everywhere your best friends are usually those who live close by (and you know you really like them when you constantly ride into the wind both ways just to watch a movie or play games)!
AL almost had the fight song learned by the end of the game - GO COUGARS!
Steve is the one on the bottom right (#96) - so proud of him!
And thanks again Rob (Cody & Benji too) for the tickets!
