...no more pictures from the old SONY Cybershot 5.1. It looks like it slid out of the truck in Casper, WY at the Walgreens/Wendy's parking lot, and someone must have picked it up. While it was an old camera, the memory card is all I want back. I'm pretty sure it landed next to the truck, so I'm bummed that someone didn't pick it up and just put it on the truck. Oh, well. Not a good first impression of Wyoming. That, and the wind was just HOOOOOWWWLLLLIIINNNGGG and there was the lady at Wal-Mart who said that Rawlins is the "armpit" of Wyoming. Well, we're here, and it's not that bad. I think it'll all be okay (and the wind wasn't whipping around like a son-of-a-gun, either).
The kids got to go to the water park at the West Edmonton Mall, and then we drove (the next day) to Great Falls and stayed at a GREAT Hampton Inn (***** stars, and a really great staff!). Went and had the tires changed out, the oil changed, and then headed towards Billings. Stupidly, I didn't download the camera last night. :-(
Today, crossed into Wyoming (and saw a Lynden Transport (Alaska) truck stopped at the K-Mart in Sheridan, WY!), got to Casper, horror of the camera (I just cried and cried because it's the camera we'd bought to take to Ireland years ago, and while it was quite old and we needed to buy a new one, I really feel horribly about the memory card...and remember, it's been an incredibly long trip and we're all exhausted!)
Then....Rawlins. It was dusk so we didn't see much, but we're staying at a very nice hotel for a couple of days until we get the lay of the land and try to figure out what to do next.
Hope everyone's having a WONDERFUL evening! Hope my friends in Fairbanks are doing well (e-mail me if you have news about the Kenya Mission Trip from the church--are they all okay??).
Take Care everyone! JM and family (and now it's just the WIND that's making me "Jittery")
