All paperwork final and I now own what once was just a dream!

My Husband has given me the tools to follow my dream and to truly hit the road and proceed with my quest to find my Native American roots~ Love you Jaybird!!! I am ready! I am going to start making arrangements to meet with the tribes I need to meet with and do the on hands research that I need to do – I have done all I can on the internet it is a have to be in person thing now! I’m excited and I’m ready! My Ancestors are leading this journey and I’m enjoying letting them guide the way~ I am going to look into getting sponsorships/grants for this research – time to bring in the help so I can truly do the research I need to do~

I am now the proud owner of a 2008 Coachman Capri and 2008 Nissan Titan LE
