Stupid app.

So, the way I had planned on updating this blog is by an app on my tablet. To this point, the app has not worked. So please, get off my back, im posting as I can. Anyway, a summary.

Empire Builder: terrible 2 day ride. $6 for a microwaved cheeseburger, half a million hands of rummy and a very frustrated tired Dakota.

Minneapolis: got in 2 hours before the wedding instead of 8. No shower, no nap. Just smelly stinky Dakota at cjs cousins wedding. Next day we went to a car show, then just hung around Minneapolis the next few days.

Chicago: talk about a sad city. Tje homeless there just makes it all so sad. We saw the sears tower. The navy pier and had deep dish pizza. Best pizza ever.

Boston: we didnt have a lot of time but we went to the USS Constitutution and took the tour of the oldest floating warship in the world. Then we went to TD Garden and I mailed a postcard to Kyla back home.

NYC: I could never live here. Its hot, frightening, smelly, and just all around to much concrete. I really cant wait to get from here to DC. The highlight was finding out Ducatti makes shoes.

I'll post more in depth when I can, but this should hold you over for now.


Please work.

Readyish to go.

Clean clothes. Check.
Back pack. Check.
Snacks. Check.
Money. Check. (thank you Aunt Ducie and Heidi)

Well I guess this is it. A little over one day until we leave Albany. I'm spending my last day in Albany with another great friend of mine, Melinda Guillen.  We'll be spending the day, or half of it atleast, volunteering in our former kindergarden teacher's classroom.  Then home to double check my bag and make sure everything is ready to go. Then play a little Black Ops, take a nice, hot shower, and get a good nights sleep before our 9:45 a.m. departure thursday morning.

Monday 6/13

Buying our tickets today.  I'm still freaking out about the trip.  I've never been away from the family for that long.  But this is a once in a lifetime oppurtunity and my bestfriend and I are going to go out there and make the best of it.

Keep checking in for updates and pictures. :-)
