Today is Thursday, July 27, and we're at Wal-Mart!!!

Yes, you read right, we're at Wal-Mart!

Last night, after a scheduled rest stop, one of the busses would not start. Luckily, this happened at the gas station, so they had resources available to assist. Even so, it took four hours before the problem was identified and corrected (fuel filter replaced).

So, right now the corps has taken over a Wal-Mart for a break. The cooks served a breakfast of PB&J and bananas earlier this morning. During the four-hour gas station stop, some of the kids grabbed their sleeping bags and sacked out on the ground; what the heck, four hours floor time is priceless, no matter where it is.

I'll give you an update when I hear more about today's remaining schedule. They are currently near Holly Springs, Mississippi, and have an estimated 3-4 hours of travel remaining. Luckily, there's no competition tonight!
