Preparing to travel

Christmas is now past and it it time to start preparing to travel to Florida. There is a lot of snow on the ground and the cold weather has everything frozen. I tried this morning to open the trailer so we could start putting some of the items in that we would need and start checking to make sure we have the essentials, but all of the locks were frozen. At least I did get the Christmas decorations taken down and put away for another year. In the next few days we will be keeping an eye on the weather and make final travel plans.

About a year ago Linda and I decided our life was going to take a new direction. We wanted to do something that would allow us to give back because we have been so fortunate in our lives and have been blessed so often. We like to travel, meet new friends and to share our faith with others. After a lot of prayer we decided on becoming NOMADS. Finding out about the organization was not easy and it was only after I followed a NOMAD on I-57 near Salem, Illinois, was I able to find what we needed to know about becoming NOMADS. We followed the steps and started looking forward to doing a project with NOMADS. Soon we will be traveling to Florida to work at ECHO (Educational Concerns about Hunger Organization). We invite you to follow our us on our journey!

As the snow begins to fall, we are already thinking of the warm weather and the trip south!
