After leaving Long Island & saying goodbye to our Aunt, we conquered Manhattan (again!!) & arrived at our mahoosive hotel room in New Jersey; very happy bunnies indeed :o)  After the best nights sleep yet we met our trek group for the 1st time & also our crazy tour guide Paul. By 8am we were all in Betsy (the van) & off on the road.

1st stop - Niagara Falls beautiful place; although is not as big as we thought it would be! Still very impressive & we got absolutely soaked on thhe Maid of the Mist boat (photos in fetching blue ponchos will be added soon) Spent the 1st night at Lake Ontario & pitched our tent very well, decorated with a few girly touches hehe! 2nd day was a looooong driv & we camped at Lake Erie - spent the nigh playing footie & learning a few drinking games. Yesterday we travelled to Chicago stopping at an Amish village on route - v.interesting seeing such a different way of life! Checked into our hostel on the evening; a proper bed at last!! went for a tastey pizza & a cheeky cocktail (always adds to the fun!) Today we have just been walking around the city & lazed about on the beach next to Lake Michigan - off out for a group meal tonight which should be fun :o)

Next 10 days we will be roughing it again - South Dakota, Indian Plains & mingling with the cowboys in Jackson so we will update you all as soon as we can.
