The Jazz won! John Stockton made the winning 3 pointer.

Today we traveled 19 miles to Bayard. We passed Chimney Rock today. Till first break I walked then I rode with Floyd. At lunh a boy namedHeber got his mission call for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints he's going to North Carolina. It was Alexes birthday.

Today seemed like a long day we didn't get into camp until 2pm. We are camping in a highschool parking lot and the city of tents is on the football field. Our wagons are camped in lines instead of a circle because of space.

They say that in miles we are halfway to the Great Salt Lake valley. Hooray.

Well this is dan ina parking lot in Bayard Nebraska
