Some news from Laura!

It’s a little after 3pm here in the Pacific Northwest. No; the news isn’t about Darren and Laura’s arrival here. As a matter of fact, they are still in Jamestown, North Dakota. (sigh!)

Darren became ill a few days ago with the flu thing – fever, chills and cough. Now he’s better, and Diederick is going through the sickness ordeal. Laura says she’s working hard to get liquids down the little boy. All he will eat so far today is fishy crackers. Carly is still well, although working hard on drooling and teething. Laura is dosing herself with vitamin C powder in an attempt to stay well. Hope it works, and that the sick ones get well quickly!

Today Darren was feeling well enough to unload some of the heavier items from the trailer, which include:

  • his motorcycle
  • the washing machine
  • the dryer
  • an amplifier/speaker
  • some canned goods

Of course that meant he had to rearrange the load, too, so the weight of it is rightly distributed. Hard work for a guy just on the mend.

Darren and Laura plan to resume their travels Thursday night, heading to Montana, where they plan to visit his sister and her family for two days. Then comes the last leg of the trip, ending here. Time frame: in time for Laura’s twin sister Sarah’s wedding on September 20th!

Today Laura sent off eight blog posts and some pictures via “snail mail”. Once I receive those, I’ll start posting them for her.

Thanks for stopping by to check on Laura’s whereabouts. Bye!

    Poor Darren and Deeder being unwell! Here’s to a speedy recovery for them both, and fingers crossed Laura and Carly don’t catch it too.

    Send Laura my love, I’ve been thinking of them all frequently. :)

    Thanks, Gramma Momma, for another update! Hope Deeder feels better soon. This has been a long trip for them, but hopefully with some good memories and stories for Darren and Laura.
