Hello, all! Thank you to those who responded to my question, and especially to Shell Marr for your e-mail!
Welcome Alicia!!! So glad Shell got right back to you...she's always on top of things and I don't know what we'd do without her here. As I told Shell, I am unable to attend the "Sprawl," this year. Darnit...would loved to have you join us!! Having just graduated college and not working full-time yet, I've got the free time, but not the funds! Oh, I'd say you need a break after graduation...but I can understand your concern and need to work full time. But I wish you all the best, and can't wait to read and hear all about how it went! Oh we promise to post about our adventure plus some pictures when we return---but maybe not ALL about it! wink, wink
BTW, don't know where in Iowa you are but I love Iowa!!! Des Moines is the cleanest city I've ever been in...but that was years ago. I hope it hasn't changed!!!
