From Justin:

We headed out of San Francisco and took a four-hour trip southwest to see the sequoia trees. Man, they were huge! We looked at the third largest tree in the world … and it was really big! We spent a good chunk of time in the Sequoia National Forest … and once again, we got beautiful weather. We're now heading off to Las Vegas. Hopefully the sun is shining for us there, too. So far the weather during the trip has been fabulous for us. I'm not sure where we're going to stay, but it will be nice to be in the hotel for the night. During most of the trip, we have spent time in hotels. Hopefully we all come out on top in Las Vegas, but I'm actually looking forward to the free shows. All in all, today was a great day. Well, that's all, folks!

I just got home from the Twolves-Bobcat game. One of the most disappointing games I've ever seen the Wolves play. We controlled the first half, going into the break with a 15 point lead. We then we let Adam(dirt stache) Morrison dominate us. He hit everything in the second half. We ended up losing by 5.
Anyways, your stories of the roadtrip have been great. Thank you, and Andy, for keeping such a great log, letting us experience your travels along with you. May the good weather continue to follow you and the bad weather find its way over towards Green Bay

Justin and Team.....

We are sure glad that you have had good weather. It makes the trip much better to see everything in warm weather.

You will love Sin City. It's a place all to it's own. You really have to see it to believe it. It was the fastest growing city in the US for several years. Must be lot's of money in gambling?????

At night it's a light show, how would you like to pay the electric bill? Just sit back an suck in all the sights.

We are sure glad your health is holding on. That combined with the great family, good weather, and the full support of your team has many special memories of the trip for you and your family. May our good Lord continue to ride shotgun with you.

JJ -

So you saw General Grant! Those trees are just amazing. Makes you wonder if God was trying to touch heaven when He created them. (Yes, that's cheezy, but they are so huge!)

Thanks so much for keeping Andy up to date so he can blog for you. And Andy, thanks for being the best friend ever.

As always my prayers are with you. Let the sunshine and stars follow you on your trip and the lights of Vegas shine bright. Play a quarter for Burke. Our little slot machine (Burke) would appreciate it.

Love you -

Hi JJ and crew,
sounds like California was beautiful, sure brings back happy memories for me being the first of the many places Eric and I have lived!
Hope you have a fun time in Vegas- I'm sure it will feel good to get out of the RV for awhile as well.
praying for great weather for the rest of your travels, give my big sis' a hug from me JJ, love you,

Kuke da Man,

I am envious of your tip, it sounds like good weather and great sites and wonderful company. Enjoy the shows in LV and win some money. My favorite is casino war, but I usually lose.

Talk to you soon.

Hey Kuke,

Wow - I've always wanted to see Sequoia National Park...Your travels sound beautiful! Thanks to you and Andy we can experience all the fun of traveling at our desk.

My prayers are with you and I hope you continue to have good weather & safe travels. If you're heading into the casinos for a little bit of gamblin' try the roulette wheel. I'm not much of a gambler, but had fun with that!
