Team 166 participated in the Town of Merrimack Fourth of July celebration. The Greenleafs donated the use of their open trailer onto which we put Recycleable and entered the parade.

At the Midway, we benefitted from the climbing wall generously provided by the Rotary Club of Merrimack and the Town. We wish to thank them for that.

The weather was iffy, the wind was brisk enough to require that the overhead covers be tied down; there was a threat of rain, but the liquid precipitation didn't materialize.

Thanks to everyone who helped with the event, your efforts were appreciated!

Elko NV for the night, Reno tomorrow, CA on sunday the 5th. Spent yesterday touring Yellowstone; very, very cool. Lots of wildlife close up (bison, elk, deer) lots of thermal events (old faithful et al), great scenery. hotel built in 1923 ( you remember :-)); good shape but no phone, tv, internet or ac. But right in the middle of the park. Some pics attached.

Hello from all; best regards to all.

Hello from all the Reich family from Rapid City SD. Spent the day at Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park and Crazy Horse Monument on very cool tour. Some pictures attached. Tour started at Ft. Hayes which had some old time "shops": tin plate making (lathe from 1905), knife making (mechanical hand cranked drill with auto ratcheting index down), penny squishing off of late 1800's steam powered stuff, and a super buff 1932 B Ford Flathead V8. Found nice looking restored Willy's Jeep after tour. Real cool stuff, you would have enjoyed. Oh yeah, Rushmore and the park were pretty neat as well.

Tomorrow we are off to yellowstone; ~ 300+ miles on 2 lane highway through wyoming. Should be fun.

all is well here. We talk of you often. Enjoy the pictures and send our best to all back east.

Warm regards,

Ron (Lisa, Bri and Jill)

A good day, the efforts yesterday seem to have paid off. The roller effectively dumps the entire load of balls quickly and efficiently. Overall the machine's performance is better than that at Granite State.
