The first day was a hectic day getting to camp, setting up, being sequestered in our little leader's cabin with 65 other people because of impending weather alerts, realizing Sam's had forgotten to load one entire flatbed of food and needing to drive back to Omaha to retrieve it, being stuck in Sam's while the tornado sirens blasted, not being able to get back to camp because of down power lines from the storm, trying to reach camp by taking back roads and in the process, backing the car into a river-side ditch and needing to be towed out to the tune of $120 [which I just happened to have thanks to Randy's insistence that I cash a check someone gave me and hang onto the cash], unable to reach camp and needing to drive BACK TO OMAHA AGAIN to sleep and await the clearing of the road that gets us to camp...are you all getting the picture???

I make this sound like a nightmare and it really was on Monday but after we got through that serious speed bump, things really did improve and we did have a blast. Nobody got hurt...we are all still friends...I had the most amazing support staff and we didn't even burn one morsel of food!!

Our tradition has been to entertain the girls as well as feed them well and I believe we did accomplish that!
