Hmm, so this is an interesting way to start our next rotation

Today is one of those days where nothing goes right.  At the beginning of our 6 hour drive, as I was lifting my brand-new backpack into the car, the strap broke.  We pulled off the highway in Kingsburg, CA, only to find out that the entire town is apparently closed on Sundays.  We stopped at a rest stop that advertised wine/cheese tastings, kettle corn, and a petting zoo, only to find out that a "petting zoo" consists of a tiny pony and a donkey in a field with an old 50's pickup truck.  It's just been an "off" day.

Then we get to Modesto for our rotation.  Modesto is kind of.... sketchy.  When we were looking for our hotel (because the Garmin sent us on a wild goose chase, it took forever), we drove by a motel a few blocks away that had a very obvious hooker walking into one of the rooms.  Pomona feels safer than here.  But anyway.  We get to our hotel to find out that our super classy hotel rooms have an entire mirrored wall, and all the decorations are that 80's rusty-rose pink shade.  It's entertaining, to say the least.

Here's to hoping we've gotten all of the hiccups out of the way, and the next two weeks will go smoothly.  If not, we'll just have to have a sense of humor about all the potential things that can go wrong.
