Randy, Corey, Glenn and I drove up to Battle Creek Friday afternoon. The van said 487 miles from Grinnell to BC. It took us about 7 hours. Our other passenger Nick was too sick to travel. I did pick up his t-shirt for him however.
While driving through Iowa City it was raining pretty hard. About 200 yards in front of us a semi started to Jack knife in the middle of the interstate. I'll I could do was apply the brakes and scream "Look at that! Look at that!". Anyway, the trailer as about at a 90 degree to the cab. Somehow the driver straightened it out. The rest of the drive was pretty easy except I was on edge from the near death experience.

The "Match Predictor" that I gave John last year. I brought him a switch to enable "free vend" for his soda machine this year.
