Today's journal is written by Chris Schuster:
We all got to sleep in! We got up at 8:00 and are supposed to be leaving at 9:00. so far everything is going ok. The day after the Grand Canyon hike and every bone and muscle in my body aches. Now that I think back on it, why did I ever do that to myself? We are on our way to Zion National Park. Also the first mail stop. I am so excited. I so look forward to getting letters and food from everyone I know.
I received 15 letters (but no food). Tonight I am going to eat soup, and maybe some bread. So far today has been a fairly good day. But it is so hot on the bus you could feel a warm breeze on the bus coming in through the windows.
Note: Journal entries and snapshots will be updated one day after they occur.
Additional Note: Once again we apologize for the lag in our updates. We are finding that high technology, roughing it, and a stingy National Park policy make it difficult to modify and make connections on a regular basis. Thanks for sticking with us despite these delays. Galen and Luke.
Snapshots From Day 11
Lee Elliott, Sarah Christensen, and Carla Montgomery spend some time reading new mail and writing their journals.
Casey McIntosh relaxes in his sleeping bag with a good book, The Stand. Several other people on the trip have also been busy reading the book.
