Are We THERE Yet?!



As any pioneer should expect on the Oregon Trail, at one point or another, things are eventually going to fall apart. We are not quite ready to start throwing family heirlooms out of the wagon along the trail just yet, but this day brought with it many challenges:

- three different check engine lights came on in our van (and are still on)
- a rock (kicked up from a tractor trailer) cracked our windshield and the crack is still growing
- one of the dogs (Paw Paw) decided seat belt straps and seat stow-away handles are a tasty snack and proceeded to eat them both
- we are all getting sick from way too much processed food

Of course none of this could break our spirits, but with all of that said...are we there yet?!?!
I'll be back Monday with more pictures from the trail!
