Fifteen Beds

June 20, 2013 Posted by Deb

We are mostly done with a calorie positive lap of the middle part of the country from Iowa to Minnesota and recently Colorado. Since leaving the boat at the end of May, we have crashed with relatives, friends, the odd motel, a 1998 van, and a tent. Our bed total is 15 and the food is legendary. The only summary comments we can make so far are that it is good to see friends and relatives again and we have been freezing since the day we got on an air conditioned plane to leave Guatemala. We seem to be moving to colder climates as we acclimate and finished up today (6/19/2013) at 11,000 feet and snow banks everywhere.
