After a wonderful Shabbat in Atlanta, learner’s services minyan on Sunday followed by puppet making, Bus E headed from Atlanta to Orlando today. The lengthy drive allowed for some great bonding and bus games. In addition to bus fun, the Wheelniks chanced to stop at the Butterfly Rainforest, a 6,400-square-foot screened, outdoor enclosure with subtropical plants and hundreds of living butterflies. The group got some beautiful shots with some beautiful creatures. Once they finally make it to Orlando, the group will be hosted Ohev Shalom for some highly anticipated home hospitality. Bus E can’t wait to explore the great state of Florida this week!

After an eye-opening arrival in Yellowstone yesterday, Bus A continued their touring of Yellowstone today. They saw the amazing Grand Canyon of Yellowstone as a precursor to the “real” Grand Canyon they will be viewing later this summer. Additionally, they saw the always reliable geyser, Old Faithful, which erupts every 91 minutes! To cap off their night in the park, the Wheelniks will break up into Sihot groups to discuss the topic of the evening and following that, Bus A will be having gender bonding activities!

After an awesome visit in Spokane yesterday, Bus C headed into Seattle to experience the Pacific Northwest! Their day was filled with visits to the Space Needle, with some great pictures,  the Experience Music Project, where they explored a museum that is dedicated to the history and exploration of both popular music and science fiction, and finally at Pike’s Place Market, where they saw the famous throwing of fish! To cap off their busy day, Bus C had a delightful dinner of vegetarian Chinese food-well deserved! The Wheelniks can’t wait to explore the Pacific Northwest later this week!

Mission Mitzvah had a wonderful Shabbat and start of the week in New Orleans before heading off to Memphis today. Because they had such a long ride, there were some great bus games and bonding done on the trip. Once they got to Memphis, Bus H  explored Beale Street, a street known for its deep Rock and Soul roots. From there, the group headed back to their hotel, where they participated in a program on Kavod Le’Ani, honoring the impoverished, an important lesson to learn for all of the Wheelniks.

After a wonderful night of home hospitality in Oklahoma City, Bus B set out this morning for Amarillo, Texas! After a long drive south, the group partook in an amazing Jeep tours of the city and its surrounding canyons and beautiful scenery. Once back at the hotel this evening, Bus B will have the ever hilarious game of get-to-know-your-staff, where they’ll have a chance to learn a little about their staff’s background and how they became the great Jewish educators that they are today. The Wheelniks can’t wait to learn more about their wonderful staff and explore the American Southwest later this week!
