Posting Again!

Heather photographing a grave outside Lake Geneva, right before the heatstroke. Also please note the American flag, which was a reoccurring theme on our trip.

Where are your updates, Meg Dolan?

All of you may be asking this. Well, I moved. Finished unpacking Sunday. Started MCAD on Monday. Tuesday afternoon my graphics card on my computer gave up the fight. So as soon as I get her back from the shop, this blog will once again be a nice and regular operation. For now, sit tight. It should only be a few days.

Corrupt Card

The card I bought specifically for the trip corrupted on the first day. I did file recovery and got some pretty amazing stuff back though. This is my favorite one by far.

I'm going on vacation for five-ish days. I won't have internet. Sit tight guys!

The Leave Taking

Getting ready to set out from the MCAD parking lot, safety van full of bikes and Owen in tow. Also please note the three waterbottles near my bike. I actually brought eight.

The Walk Blog Begins

And now begins the epic journey blog! Due to time-off-from-jobs limitations, we decided to do a combination of biking and walking. We also brought a Safety Van, driven by our friend Owen, a painting major at MCAD, which we wound up very much needing at the end.

I feel it's appropriate to start off with this photo. This is a photo of us taking pictures in Lake Geneva, taken by Owen.
