Day 1: On the Road

It was well before the crack of dawn when I pulled into the loading dock at the Nature Research Center to pick up the crew and their gear.  With a 34 hour drive ahead of us, we needed to get out of Dodge with a lot of daylight to spare.

We geared up, gassed up, and hit the road eager to get to Kansas City before crashing for the night.

Just a couple of hours out of town my two-way radio lit up an a voice came over… “we are pulling over.”


“We just blew a tire.”

The crew at work. Still smiles??

Yep.  Its a given on every field expedition.  The flat tire.  Only, it doesn’t usually happen in the first two hours.

With a two hour delay under our belt, we were back on the trail.

Let’s hope to fairer skies.
