Learning the Steps

The traveling begins…

Well, I'm no longer in Sandusky! The first night wasn't so bad, but I was still in town near the kids (and the "safety net"). The second night, I was in another town and is wasn't so great.

Learning the Steps, Planning & Preparations

Bumps & Bruises

Yep, real bruises. It seems that I've been covered with them since starting this project, but I knew it was all part of the deal.
