we spent the last two nights at land between the lakes adjusting to our new lifestyle... figuring out the best way to pack the car, starting fires (corey has taken on this task for the time being), and navigating the gps (yes keith, you were right... we NEED it, and thank you charles for the amazing gift).
we camped across from a family that was clearly from the south... there were five young boys and the second youngest was named brother. that was his actual name. their parents spent the majority of the trip screaming rule after rule to the kids across the entire campground. i think at one point i realized i had been staring at them for several minutes and i looked at corey and he was doing the same.
land between the lakes is actually a national forest... and it was literally a strip of land in between kentucky and barkley lake. at one point, we almost ran out of gas trying to get from one side to the other. we got to see a bison range! that was cool. the lake was kind of mucky and we did not find a place to swim. boo.
i think we are both still feeling like we are on vacation (it has only been three days) and we are so excited about everything we do. we keep getting "new city" face (btw we have been calling everything we get excited about "new ___" face thanks to stevie). missouri is actually quite beautiful... really green and nice right outside of the city.
we have to get back to the campsite for the night, and then we will be heading out to the kansas city area tomorrow! two more nights and we will be heading to colorado!!!!! i will get the party pics and more up as soon as we have time.
love all you guys... and remember we don't have text messaging so call us!!!
