Saturday morning we got our luggage and left for Chicago. Once we got to the suburbs of Chicago the traffic and weather was getting bad we moved one block in like 20 minutes. It took us another hour to get to the O'Hare airport we paid for our bags and got food and starbucks and went to our gate. We got on the plane and the take off was pretty bad the wind got really bad and it was bumpy. The flight was about 4 hours. The plane landed in Portland, Oregon around 8:30 west coast time.

They had some food trucks so we ate there and then went home. After about a hour it was about 1:00 we left with the dog and went to this park. The park was a really green, really pretty park that had waterfalls and a lake.

It started a couple weeks before when Joel said “Hey does anyone want to go to White Cloud Michigan for a three day trip?” I was thinking about it and I signed up. The days passed by like racing cars and that’s when the day arrived, I was ready to go. It took us three hours driving. It felt like an eternity, especial when we heard the same song on the radio like three million times. When we were in the van, we slept, we sang, and we played…

    when all the facts may be brought to bear. In preparation for this meeting, ask yourself some hard questions: Could my opponents be right? Partly right?
