Time Warp, Part 1

Ever felt like you were in one? A time warp? I do. Six days, 2,200 miles, two states, one massive waterfall, several Starbucks stops, way too much money in gas, one late night run to VooDoo Doughnut and we are finally home. It’s been a short trip with a long drive for a hastily arranged […]
