Road Trip with the Ladybug!

Today we leave Oregon, headed East to PA by next Sunday. We'll be pulling our one-of-a-kind ladybug trailer. Anyone behind us on the highway will be treated to a big smile that will hopefully brighten their day. (The antennas wiggle as the trailer moves down the road also.)

It didn't' always look like this. When we got it, the trailer was plain white. Actually it was used pretty hard too, so it needed a little work...and paint. This was five years ago when we went out East to do some refresher flight training at Moody.

The kids kept saying it was so boring. So we voted on options--ladybug, turtle, bumblebee, etc., and the ladybug one. So Britton and I painted it up like a ladybug. Anyway, if you happen to be on the highway the next week (or anytime in the next two months really,) and you see this trailer, that's us! But our "new" van is green, not blue.

Please keep us in your prayers as we travel. We look forward to seeing many of you over the next days and weeks.

Hi Joy, Dave & Kiddos - we like everything BIG in Texas. But we don't have any giant lady bugs like the one running behind your van. You would be welcomed here with a lady bug that big!
We pray God's protection on you all, lady bug included, as you travel across the US - Dixie & Lew

We saw you on I-5 north of Salem yesterday, and your trailer made our day. Thanks for taking the time to brighten up the world.
