We also did not miss traffic jams, traffic lights, sirens, malls, big box stores, trains going by the campground six times during the night............and we didn't miss the big crowds of people, the rush, rush, rush to get wherever it is that you're going so when you get there you can rush some more. Yes, we have come to really like the quieter life, the more slow paced life, where people are the important things, not the things you own. I want to go back!
We did see some pretty scenery though; many huge farms, lots of cattle, peaceful little ravines crossing between the green hills, and the beautiful golden grain fields.
The picture below is another taken out of the truck window at 65 miles per hour, so it's a bit blurry. But I think this farmer must be doing something right, uh? I think there were 24 grain bins on his farm!
Today's news on Gail is a bit better. Corey said she was much calmer today, carried on a conversation, and was not combative. She got out of bed and stood for a few minutes, and was more like her own self. She's still sedated and sleeps a lot, but seems to be coming out of it better today. I pray that continues.
