went up it. and down it. (HUGE sand dune behind me.) without 4-wheel drive too. just rear-wheel. the 4-wheel was seizing up. DANG, WAS IT COLD! but more fun than i've had in quite a while. saw some hunters back on the trails. they were cool. lots of puddles. frozen puddles. now they're smashed up piles of ice chunks. vroom.

i'm going up to the u.p. like i always do this time of year but usually i've packed by now. it's just after midnight and i haven't even started. oh well. at least my laundry is done. i just gotta try to remember to throw everything important in a bag and i'll be good. right? anyway, we're going to cedar campus--intervarsity's main conference grounds in the midwest. it's about a 45-minute drive northeast of mackinac island. (like...a 7-8 hour drive.) yeah, it's sweet up there. few people and lots of coastline. plenty of little fuzzy critters too. but some are stinky. anyway, we're going with some chinese people--we do that often--but this time, they know no english. the baby in this picture is their granddaughter. and the parents of the baby went to cedar last year. anyway, without knowing english, it will be fun playing charades to try to communicate. i can't wait to SLEEP in the car. oh, and we rented a suburban like we usually do. so we'll have plenty of space for luggage and to stretch out. woohoo. and SHOULD IT DECIDE TO SNOW, like, EVER, we'll have the 4-wheel-drive to handle it. okay. ta ta for now. hopefully i'll have some sort of wireless up there so i can post some more. i should be banished from my blog since i update it so INfrequently. yeah, i know. sorry.

cliff levingston. he's now the coach of the gary steelheads. he used to be on the bulls championship team back in the day, tho, with jordan, pippen, and rodman. i'm his contact person for the courts--the steelheads are using the facility for tryouts and to do their spring camp. the league the steelheads is in isn't the NBA, of course, but i believe it's the USBL. i think. anyway, it's cool getting to know new people. and from ALL different walks.
again, sorry for not posting for so long. ugh. i really mean to do better!!!
