Traveling Home

On Friday morning we packed the trailer, hitched up and headed north. It is always difficult to leave a project, but we always have the next project to look forward to. NOMADS is not just about doing work to help someone, but it is also about spiritual growth, fellowship, and growing personally.

The trip home was quite interesting. Our GPS took us through the back roads and small towns of Arkansas on our way to West Memphis. Friday night was spent at Tom Sawyer RV park on the banks of the Mississippi.

The park was nice and had all the comforts we look for in a site. The site was on a concrete pad and had full utility hook ups. We were only a few feet from the river so we could watch the barge traffic, see the flowing water, smell the river, and hear the sounds of the water lapping against the shore. The only problem came when we were packing to leave....Greta escaped the trailer without her leash and she wanted to play rather than to travel. 

Our second night we stayed at the Tin Cup RV Park, Mahomet, Illinois. It was a full hook up site and was also very nice. 

Greta enjoyed the open space and the green grass without mud! She does travel very well and has matured since our first trip with her in 2012! Sometimes though she can still be a challenge...stubborn Corgi!

Sunday morning we attended Palm Sunday Service at the Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, Mahomet, Illinois. The service was wonderful and the congregation made us feel welcome. Ironically the Minister's father had been a NOMAD so NOMADS recieved a free commercial during the announcements.  

After church services he headed for Janesville. The travel was very difficult because of rain and high winds, but we arrived safely.
