Greeting Hennacornoelidays Nation,
Well the car is packed, the ladies are still sleeping (for now, I will start the difficulty and often dangerous task of waking them soon), and our route is as clear as it’s going to get. Last few days have been busy ones for us as Corey and I rushed to tie up loose ends and Henna alternated being very sad that second grade is ending, but also very excited for our trip to start. I did take the time last night to review an awesome band with an awesome name: The Flatlanders. True story, Corey once wanted to create a workout area for the midwest that would duplicate the experience of hiking up a mountain. Her suggested name…. Flatlanders. They would have sued us for everything.
Anyways, they rocked. 40 years of sometimes being together and sometimes going their own way on different projects. And a lot of what they had to sing could only be found with a willingness to wander. This is what I wrote if anyone is interested: http://www.chicago-splash.com/publish/Music_107/the-flatlanders.php
So off we go on the first leg of our adventure into the corn mazes of Iowa, through the sandhills of Nebraska and down past the wildfires of Colorado to the amazement of Rocky Mountain National Park and the comforts of Breckenridge. We are glad that you are here for the ride.
