      The longest it has taken me was 8 hours...And that was to Nemiah.... I am from 100 Mile House area, and those rodes were really rough. plus we did a lot of sightseeing to...took some nice pictures of only trees...because the people around their have some specific traditions that they we tried not to take pictures of rivers, mountains or anything else like that...but it was a good trip. I celebrated my 17 birthday at that pow-wow....:Thumbs

        I couldn't put in hours, maybe in days time. Anyway, have been all over. I guess the farthest drive time so far has been North Dakota. I think it took about a 2 1/2 days to get to LIttle Shell pow-wow from Texas, but we kind of took our time. Had to stop at several malls.

          23 1/2 hours to get from Wisconsin to Louisiana was my longest trip. We went thru Chicago and got caught in the tolls and traffic. We also got caught in severe weather and tornados in Illinois. Our whole drum along with all of our kids, sat in Wendy's waiting for it to stop raining sideways so we could get back on the road. That was a pretty exhaustive trip, but we learned our lesson for the next trip we took down there. When we finally got down there all of us Wisconsin natives were suffering and sweatin' our a$$es off while the Louisiana people were walking around in long sleeve shirts and jeans!! That was quite the trip...

                  As powwow season winds down we can begin to reflect on our year of powwowing.

                  Last week, I went to a powwow in California. Part of this trip was by air and the other part was on the powwow highway. My driving shift was in the middle of the night, both coming and going between the hours...

                  So what is your funniest going to or coming home from a pow wow story.

                  Here's a good one. I was going to a pow wow in Hopkinsville, KY with my brother, we loaded ourselves and our stuff into my little Chevy Cavalier and took off. Along the way we passed a place called Big Bone Lick State...
