Ready, set . . .

Getting ready for our Scouts' trip to Hannibal, MO. We leave Wednesday morning. Thursday, we hike all ten miles of the Mark Twain trail. Friday, we do the Mark Twain Cave and downtown Hannibal. Saturday, it's up early and ho! for the St. Louis Arch, and home.

The menu is set (and delectable). But I've only got tomorrow to put it all together. Here's hoping we have good weather and good fellowship over the whole course of the trip. Many of the folks we're taking don't really know how to take a long trip and enjoy it.

Anyway, I'll be pretty much incommunicado Wednesday through Saturday. I'll be cell phone-accessible to home and church for emergencies, but no e-mail and no LJ.

Pray for us. I'll tell you all about it when we get back!
