Cooler Weather!

We are working on making or adventure more interactive. So in this post we have a video from yesterday in the rain. Be sure to check it out.

This past Sunday after Church we were invited to join the St. Mary’s youth group to help them stuff Easter eggs, for next weeks Easter egg hunt. Later that day we were invited to dinner at the Dempewolf’s house. They prepared a delicious meal for us and we were able to get to know them better.

Dinner with our new friends!!!!

We left Ardmore Monday morning and headed back to where we left off on Saturday evening. We were delighted to have a cool breeze at our backs. Monday we made it just past Loco, OK before the sun began to set. We then headed to my Aunt’s house who lives near by. Tuesday morning we went back to where we ended to start-up again. The weather was nice and cool but there was a big storm on its way. We made a little video of what it was like yesterday.

Unfortunately, we did not make it very far due to the thunder and lightning in the area. We had to call it a day. On our way back to my aunt’s house we heard on the radio that there were several tornadoes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area (which is south of where we currently are). When we got back to her house we watched the weather channel and could not believe the damage that occurred. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who were affected by the tornado’s and storms.

When we returned from being out in the stormy weather we were greeted with a package all the way from Hayward, WI! Thank you New Moon!

Our wonderful care package from New Moon! Thank you!!!

We also received many kind letters and financial support from friends back home. Thank you  to you all who sent us letters and thank you to the Ely Nordic Ski Program for their generous  donation to our trip expenses!

  1. Half Way! You guys are flying!! Here’s a few tips for surviving Texas…

    - Don’t squat with your spurs on.
    - Lettin’ the cat out of the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back in.
    - If you are riding ahead of the herd, take a look back now and then to make sure it is still there.
    - If you get to thinking that you are a person of some influence, try ordering someone else’s dog around.
    - Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
    - If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is quit digging.
    -Never slap a man who is chewing tobacco.
    -Always drink upstream from the herd.
    -The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back in your pocket.

  2. We have no recent postings because I’m afraid I advised these two adventurer’s to create their own Pioneer Trail in the Southern Utah Wilderness. Hopefully they will reappear soon from the wilderness pushing Mormon Handcarts.
