After navigating several treacherous Montana mountain passes and driving in snow nearly the entire 18 hours we successfully arrived in Wyoming yesterday afternoon. It is sunny here and 52 degrees! We haven't seen sunshine since we left Virginia. The boys are heartily disappointed in the lack of snow and I, personally, do not require much sun to be happy but we are enjoying ourselves anyway. We went for a long walk this afternoon, enjoying the fresh air and the fact that we aren't driving 10 hours today!
I can't guarantee how often I'll be blogging this month; it took about 10 minutes to get blogspot up and running with my parent's dial up internet. Donald keeps checking his iPhone to see how many bars of service he has and the answer is always none. He was going to check the news on the internet until he realized how long it would take him. The boys asked today about checking out a Wii game in town and when we informed them there would be no place to find a Wii game they were astonished to learn there was no Walmart. I'm pretty sure a town needs more than 1,200 people to qualify for a Walmart! This will be a good experience for all four of us to slow down and savor a different lifestyle for a bit. We'll check back in with you when we can but if you don't hear from us for a bit, don't worry and don't forget about us. You'll hear from us eventually!
