The place God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.

Headed South. Chasing Sun.

{umm yes, i am ornery enough to have labeled treat and snack items for days 1, 2, 3. it worked great.}
{our super-helper}

{on our way..}
{oh man...it's best not to look at the km lying in wait, when just starting out...}


{early at the start of our first full day}

{a little fromage for you all. this was before the super scary border lady. i still get chills}


{you may or may not recognize the font of the red letters in the back but in case you were worried, our first stop was at target to grab a few food items...which we then used to make lunch...which took place upon our cooler as well as a piece of curb.
it was perfect - this is how memories are made}
{keeping the mood light with a little sugar.
in case you are wondering - because this much sugar seems a little out of the realm of moi -
they were each given 1 ringpop which they could enjoy throughout all 3 days...at any time they wished}

{in case anyone is wondering the first sign you see as you enter oregon, directly across the interstate from this welcome below, is a gigantic sign for hooters. just sayin'...a little class people, a little class}
{not bad eh?}
{it was a long first full day}
{starting day two...fortunately we're still all smiles}
{smiles started to be fewer and farther in between somewhere around here}
{you may recognize this girl...we had the privilege of stopping by her home and hanging out, on our way down}

{we saw more snow in the past 2 1/2 days than we have all winter in BC, i'm quite certain...interstates and major roads closed, chains required, floods everywhere, high winds you name it we drove it. it was insane}
{approaching our final destination}

{mmmm, supper.}
