A little bit random


This morning we took our first shower in a truck stop. They charged us $9.00 for it! I had no idea it would be so expensive to shower. The good news is that the shower was clean, and now I am too!

The country defineately gets greener the farther east we go. We are now in Missouri (here is a picture I took with my phone because the camera batteries were dead) and there are a lot more trees and rolling hills than were in Kansas. The countryside is quite pretty. This morning Josh started driving before Mitchell was done with his cereal, and it spilled all over the bed. We won't be trying that again.



It is nice to finallly be on the road. With all the repairs that had to be done on the truck, it seemed like it was never going to happen. We are very excited, but still a little nervous and apprehensive about the unknown. That should lessen as time goes on though. Once we've been on the road for a couple of weeks, we should have a good idea of what to expect and the anxiety will leave.

We saw some signs yesterday that advertised an 8000 lb. groundhog and a 5 legged live steer. We decided they must be really desperate for tourists or something. We didn't go check it out.

I am a little bit random today. There is so much to see and experience, and I am not sure which things to share. So feel free to email me or make comments on what you want to hear more about or less about.

Why the "Von" in the Family Von Truck name?

Let me know if you get close to me. Be safe out there.

I would love to let you know if I get close to you, but I don't know who you are!

Look! I figured out how to display my name f/k/a as "-" on this blog. Now you can let me know when the Family Von Truck is near.
