Our friend Lynn joined the 2014 Smith Tour for four days. Without a doubt Lynn will take home life long memories of the Cascades, Winthrop town and its surrounding area, downtown Spokane, watching Washington State University Wazoos play the Oregon Ducks, thanks to a former student of Lynn’s, #25 Jamal Morrow of the Washington State Cougars,  and… Campground Hostess: Welcome to our campground.

It’s all fun and games now that we’re finally on the road, but a mere week ago… John: Jesus Christ Shelley! With seven days left to prepare for our half a year trip, we are not selling the duplex.

Just be You, UNLESS UR A D#$%HEAD

Why my brother, Spencer, gave me an iPhone… Spencer: What happened to your phone? Shelley: I dropped it while making the Habitat video. It was less than a week old too. Sigh. Spencer: Why don’t you get a new screen? Shelley: Because replacing the screen costs as much as a new phone. I’m going to wait to…
