Sunday - Today the team flew to Metropolis to rest and relax at Mathew Belden’s home. They spent the day riding Quads and fighting off chiggers. I was able to take Frank and Lyn Cunning and their daughter, from the First Baptist Church of North Terre Haute, for a short flight before flying to Metropolis. We tried to think of a way to thank them for their generosity and as it turned out, the one thing we could offer was the most treasured thing of all – a ride in an airplane! Lyn was thrilled –it was her first time - and we were pleased we could do something in return for all they did for our team this week.
I drove Kyle Loenhorst and Paul Martin to Indianapolis then flew down and joined the rest of the team at the Belden home later in the afternoon. After dinner we spent several hours flight planning then went to bed in anticipation of an 0500 wake up.
