The kids with spider web facepaint
Faith getting ready to push Dylan down the sled hill we snow shoed to a couple weeks ago.
For some reason the blog is centering all my typing now. Oh well, that's about it. I'll post the story of our bigfoot hunt next week hopefully, Friday I'm leaving for Tucson. Due to "travel caps" (restrictions on how much we can spend on non-emergency travel whether we have the budget for it or not) we've gotten rather inventive at finding ways to send people to training and stay under our limit. For example, the way the agency is tracking travel spending, only the dollars that get put into our travel planning and reimbursement program get officially tracked as part of our travel cap. So, if I drive rather than fly down to Tucson, it appears that we spend $1200 less. I figured the out the cost of driving, it is actually cheaper by about $500 after you figure the cost of the ticket and a rental car. So I get to spend three days driving down and three days driving back. The class I'm taking is two weeks long, so I'll be gone for 18 days. I'll stop in Idaho Falls on my way down on the 9th of March, then drive to Boulder City, Nevada to stay with a friend there, then down to Tucson. On the way home I'm going back through Page and up to Idaho Falls, where I'll stay with mom and dad again. That's about it, hopefully everybody's doing well.
