Hi this is Jill starting off the first blog entry for the trip. Thanks to Sallyjawea for providing some of the details....(we care about accuracy....this is not a tabloid)

Fr. Howard picked up Dad and John and they were on the road around 9:00. Fr. Howard was a little early (Dad loves that and that is something that we can't always provide) so they were able to visit a little before they left. Sallyjawea gleaned two particularly interesting bits of information from their conversation. (Tam said Mom got a picture before they left so hopefully we can post it tonight)


1. Mdewakanto means Mystic Lake
2. Shakopee means Little Six

Sounded like she was going to do a little research on that.

Dad called a little later to get the blog started. He is stepping into character referring to themselves as Lewis and Clark. John is going to try to post tonight.

Can't wait to hear the updates. I am having a lazy day after all the travel and have been checking out some of the history and am jealous that I am not there. (John take some notes so you can give us the tour at a later date.)

Love to Everyone, Winema Eatdarnnearanything (winema is the title for a female native american chief )

update from the medicine man
gdr called and left a cryptic message 'he is still on the road and hasn't seen any indians yet, but will call when he does?'

Hot on the Trail
I spoke to the expeditioners early this morning, and was told that their first stop would be a Native American museum in South Dakota. I was surprised that they were not rolling in the RV. Apparently, Fr. Howard gets up too early to share close quarters with the Raasch men. That made sense to me. Thanks to Jill for starting off the blog. Looking forward to pics.

Love,
A.
