Journey of Hope:
TransAmerica Team Journal 2017

Saturday, July 1, 2017

Today the team woke up rather spirited after a long 125 mile journey yesterday from Casper to Wheatland, Wyoming. The team had 75 miles and a bit of rolling hills to conquer with a tough rack time to beat but thanks to the KIWANIS Club we were all fueled up after a good breakfast.

Although the teams legs were collectively slugging, the team battled through to beat yet another rack point. We arrived in Wheatland, and had a quick turnaround to head towards lunch at the Wyoming HereFord Ranch. On this beautiful afternoon we got to spend time getting to know the local ranchers and learn much about their lifestyle that they live raising cattle day in and day out. 

After lunch, the team had some off time to take a quick nap and then head to our Friendship Visit at the local park that was hosted by the The ARC of Laramie County. Here the team got to hangout and play games in the park. Afterwards, the team quickly found their beds to catch up on some sleep now that century season is over. Huge thank you to our sponsors for the day and the local newscast that came out to help spread our cause!
