Guess I know what Rich will be doing on vacation....He has about 16 universities and colleges to put together! Even more waiting to be developed so that he has the photos to work with. Cord Camera loves him! He probably takes between 100 - 200 photos per school...then fits them altogether to get the final image for the print. He enjoys the process, he does it all manually, laying it out by hand, he's a visual type of guy. People ask if he does it all by photo shop, and I have to tell them that he doesn't do much with a computer, he barely knows how to turn one on...and does not type well at all.....

Mission accomplished!

As promised, we have just returned from the trip which took us through 6 states, including N&S Dakota and we walked 13 schools. I will include them in the list to the right. Remember, these won't be completely done for awhile, but some will be done before Christmas. Everything went pretty smoothly, it only rained one day....if you need rain, just ask us to visit, it seems to follow us around. Rich caught a cold so he wasn't feeling great through most of the trip. A lot of road construction and also construction on the schools that we visited. There are fewer students walking the campus in the summer but a lot of rebuilding going on.

Next Trip

Our next trip is scheduled. We're going to North & South Dakota. This is new territory for us, having never been there. When this is accomplished, we will have been in 48 states. Along the way, we'll add some more schools in Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. I will list the schools later.
