After about an 10 hour travel day, we have made it!!! We had some close calls, but my brave team handled them well. Mary and I battled toll booths and then Luis and I took it a step further and conquered death. Actually. We went to a Mexican food restaurant and tried a hot sauce called “death”. It was really only injury worthy though: the real killer was one called “Endorphin Rush”. The next time we challenged death was when they put me behind the wheel. After my car learned that animals can love and what gross domestic happiness was through twenty questions, we finally got to Chestnut Ridge! After dinner, we ended up playing Mafia for probably three hours. People died from falling off of beds, parked cars, and tripping over pebbles. Others were wrongly incarcerated, some (like me) simply for “looking innocent” or others for moving. We fought to the very end, but when it was over I felt so close to my team. Put 15 strangers got in a car, add some hot sauce and some obstacles, and 10 hours later, you get a strange big family!
