Brenda & Barbie,I’m remembering a trip Norm & I took with your dad and mom many years ago. We were going to camp in this field along a creek in W. Virginia. Your dad drove this big car (can’t remember the make) and he pulled into this field and and shortly thereafter he drove right into a swampy area and we were stuck, REALLY STUCK. There we were out in the middle of nowhere with no one around to help us. Pushing didn’t help and the tires were spinning. Eventually, a long time later we got out and headed on down the road. Was getting late and no restaurant or motel in sight, just up & down the dark hills of W. Virginia. Late, late at night we finally came upon a dumpy motel and they only had one room left. All four of us slept in one room with two double beds. I don’t remember anymore about that trip but was a lot of laughs.
