Nomads at last!

Well, our journey began yesterday. We left “home” around 12:30pm and headed for St. Louis, MO for work. Not sure where we go from here, the schedule is not done yet. This job is a year to a year and half traveling around the country surveying McDonalds for upgrades. I may eventually end up doing the upgrades, but for now I am only using a tablet PC to draw out maps and tell other people where to install new cable, outlets, and cash registers.

We stopped in Dayton to visit Erika since she was the half way point (exactly) to our camp ground. After dinner with Erika, we headed on for another couple hours and boondocked (camping without hookups) in a rest stop in Indiana.

Today we made it to our campground around 1:30ish. Got all set up fed the kids and rested.
(if anyone wants to send mail, we are here until Satuday the 19th, 111 Transit St., St Charles, MO 63301-0146  we are in site number 1)

When we got here the thermometer at the office said 94.  We setup the trailer (no shade around) and cranked up the A/C on high.  This is what our thermometer looked like.  I was sweating like crazy (but what else is new, I’m fat).

After nap time we went to Jack in the Box for dinner and then went to see the Gateway Arch.  Can’t drive all this way without some site seeing. 🙂  Thing is huge!!!  If you haven’t seen it, you can’t even imagine how tall it is!

Aren’t they all so cute?!

If you make this one big and zoom in you can see my fam all tiny standing on a bench in front of the arch. 🙂

Thank you all for your prayers.  We made it here safe and sound.  As always, follow our traveling blog at That will give you a GPS location as to where we are.  Sorry for the advertising on there, I have to pay for web hosting somehow. 🙂

Much love,
