The is the first in what will probably be a long series of guest posts from Abigail and Josh Van Gelder, who will be traveling the country with our Gateway to Knowledge exhibition-on-wheels. This one comes from Abigail:
It finally came time to pack up our suitcases and move into our traveling home; we’ve grown to love this semi more than anywhere else. The trip we are starting will take us all over the country and into some fine American communities. While touring with exhibits is not new to Josh and I, launching one is.
It’s a pretty amazing and nerve-racking feeling taking out a new exhibit with not a scratch on it. It gets quite a reaction everywhere we stop; we are already getting tons of questions about what we’re hauling from folks passing by.
Today we finish our route to Washington DC and will be placing the rig onto the National Mall this evening. Tomorrow we open the doors greet guests from all over the country. It’s hard to express our excitement after months of planning work to bring this to you.
