Field work travelog – Day 30, Home is near

Today we drove from Cheyenne, WY to Des Moines, IA to spend the night with my colleague and friend, Julie Meachen (who also happens to be the lead investigator on the Natural Trap Cave project). It was a long drive (600+ miles), but well worth it.

We’ll all get a good night’s sleep tonight.

In the morning, Julie and I will talk ‘shop’ a bit, then we’ll be on the road once more. We have about 14 hours (1000 miles give or take) of driving to go (not including any stops). It’s feasible we could do it in one day, but really, why?

So, we’ll be on our way to Indiana or Ohio tomorrow. I don’t know where we’ll wind up. But then Tuesday…

HOME!
