RAIN, half the night and all day through the rest of Iowa and well into South Dakota.

the noise came back, hard, on the free way.  We got off at the first exit, drove in circles trying to get the sound back and as soon as we accelerated good, the front driver's side wheel just grinded.  We pulled into a jiffy-lube, where the guy in the floor saw a rusty piece logged in the rotor.  he bumped it out with a screw driver and wished us a good trip.  We lucked out and while we are prepared for repairs and problems, we were sure happy that this turned out to be nothing, so the truck runs on, through the rain, and cold.
 
Tonight we are in the middle of north Dakota and it is almost snowing.  We hunkered down at a campground with Internet capabilities.  i got the furnace to work and we are hanging in the toasty camper catching up on this blog idea.  So as long as Vanessa keeps taking pictures (and she will because her first driving experience did not go well for either of us) we will write a little.

night everybody,

brian and vanessa

Congratulations Ashely and Chris on your own little adventure ( their new parents to a little girl!)
