Sea World!

Stanley went to Sea World and met Shamu! He also came close to getting eaten by a fish. Check out the photos in the photo gallery.

Crazy Snowstorms

Stanley has driven through a lot of snow lately. As he was coming into St. Louis the other day, he passed eight semi-trucks and three regular trucks on the side of the road!! Yikes!

Tonight Stanley is sleeping in Madison, Wisconsin. He is headed to Tennessee next.

Nebraska

Last night Stanley slept in Lexington, Nebraska. Tonight he is freezing his tooshie in Minnesota. Yikes!

Minneapolis

Stanley spent two days in Denver, while Hunter took a couple of trucker courses at the terminal there. He is now headed to Minneapolis, Minnesota. Let's hope he doesn't freeze to death there!!

Denver

After traveling through Wyoming (on yucky roads) Stanley arrived in Denver. He is waiting to find out where he will go next.
