A tough opening day at Geneva Swamp

My alarm sounded at 2:30 a.m. and I got up as fast as possible knowing if I laid there any longer I would fall back asleep. I turned on the lights and listened to Jacob moan and groan before checking my phone to make sure Jenna was awake. Then the process began of making coffee and getting all the last-minute necessities gathered up before getting into the truck.

We pulled into Jenna's and she walked around the garage as I smiled at her, wondering how we talked her into this. We loaded her things in what seemed like an already full truck and took to the road as I watched a Penske box truck swerve back and forth all over the road before we make a turn.
