Debbie and I will be there if the creek don't rise.
We were there in 2007. Things were different then.
Later when we on to Yellow Stone we made a gigantic discovery!
It was on this trip that we saw our first Sprinter. We were camped at Craters of the Moon National Monument in Idaho. We were visiting the Visitor’s Center. When we came out, we saw something strange in the parking lot.
Debbie – What the heck is that?
Keith – I don’t know what the heck that is!
Debbie – What in the heck is that?!
Keith – Hey, you kids! Get away from there!
Debbie – I would not mess with that thing.
Keith – Don’t put your lips on it!
Debbie – [ ever curious ] What the heck is this?
Keith – Well, get a photo of me with it, anyway!
[ Keith hands camera to Debbie, then walks away from camera view to have his picture taken ]
Debbie – Be careful with that thing. [ snaps Keith's picture, as spark of ingenuity develops on her face ] Oh, I know what that is!
Keith – [ returns next to Debbie ] Well, what the heck is it?!
Debbie – [ looks closer ] What is that thing..?
Keith – I don’t even care what it is. [ pause ] What the heck is that?!
Debbie – I don’t know what the heck that thing is.
Keith – Oh, I know what it is! It’s a Sprinter!
Debbie – [long pause] What the heck is that?*

And 6 months later we had one of the first SMB Sprinters!
