May Camp/Memorial Day Summer Debut Concert/Move In

This weekend will be all these things and more.

It occurred to me the other day that lots of people at my house are getting ready to leave on tour (Jody and Sebastian this weekend and Aaron as soon as high school is over) -- and none of them are me. How did this happen?

Anyway, here are some links you may need before heading out for the weekend/tour, and a little preview of what the virtual cooktruck might look like for the summer.

IT'S THURSDAY, MAY 26
A DAY-BEFORE-CAMP DAY

We will be in Dubuque, Iowa
