Ames Forester


October 17th was a beautiful sunny Friday afternoon when the 10 of us left the ISU Forestry greenhouse. How could it be cold in Carbondale, Illinois? After all, we were going south. The trip took about 11 hours and wasn't exactly uneventful. John Jennett's car blew a front tire while going down the freeway passing a truck. I was driving Mark Rediger's car when a friendly small town policeman stopped me for having a headlight out. No ticket was issued but he sure shook up the contents of the car.
