    Manifest Apropriation [IN, MO, NE]

    June 29, 2018 in the United States

    As we worked our way west from Virginia the predominant theme at the first few stops was westward expansion. The battlefield at Vincennes, IN celebrated a victory by George Rogers Clark and his Patriots over the British in 1779. The dramatic century-old murals at the monument, however, portrayed the victory as pivotal to securing a foothold for westward expansion.

    In St Louis we visited the newest National Park-- Gateway Arch NP. This park tries to balance celebrating how the west was won with the cost to Native Americans.

    The final stop in this triptych was Homestead National Monument of America. This site celebrated the rugged individualism of pioneers who staked their future on land grants of 160 acres.

    Hier gibt es tatsächlich eine Fußgänger- und Radbrücke über den Missouri. Der Fluß markiert die Grenze zwischen Nebraska und Iowa und gleichzeitig zwischen dem wilden Westen und dem zahmen Osten des Landes.

    2) If you are located WEST of the Mississippi River and spot the following license plates, with a reliable witness, you earn a dollar from Grampy. US states: Vermont, Maine. Canadian provinces: the Maritimes (New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia) along with Newfoundland and Labrador.

    3) When you see a plate for the first time, you have to locate it on a map, find the capital and the bordering states/provinces/territories.

    Ogallala Aquifer

    August 5, 2017 in the United States

    Grampy Carpenter sent us some homework so we are reporting back all that we learned.

    1) What is the Ogallala Aquifer and it's significance?
    - The biggest aquifer in the United States covering 8 Great Plains states and 174,000 square miles. It is part of the High Plains Aquifer.
    - It is where most of the western plains states get their water and is rapidly being depleted. Many parts of the aquifer have run dry in recent years, mostly in Kansas and Texas.
    - We read this article from National Geographic to learn about the impact of it's overuse. http://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2016/08/vanishing-midwest-ogallala-aquifer-drought/

    2) What is the meaning behind the 100th Meridian?
    - This line of longitude signifies the approximate line where to the west there is dry land and to the east there is more wet land.
    - This also signifies where elevation changes in the US. To the West most of the elevation is above 2,000ft and to the east the elevation is below 2,000 feet. Of course, as with anything there are exceptions such as the Appalachian Mountains.

    Patrick's Playland

    August 5, 2017 in the United States

    Since the Pac 'n Play had to be retired (he looked like a human pretzel in it over March break), Gus created our very own bedrail for Patrick that doubles as a playpen type area. Perfect! It's 8:15am right now, but with the rain it's very dark. Pictures aren't great and the photographer is in the playpen, but you can get the general, albeit blurry, idea of the fun being had! Hot Wheels and Cars are exploring and going on adventures (under my legs!!!).Read more
