My Day with Aaron

October 25, 2012 | Sherry Samuels

On Tuesday Aaron and I spent 16 hours together driving to Atlanta and back. We were taking the male wolf to his airplane so he could flyout non-stop to his new home in Tacoma Washington. It was a long day for sure, but things went great. Aaron and I arrived back at the Museum tired but safe sometime around midnight. The wolf arrived safe and sound and was let out of his crate around 10 PM pst (1 AM Durham time). 

You can imagine, or maybe not, what went on in the van all day long. Somethings are secrets to never be shared (you know, what happens in the van stays in the van). However, I’ll share some things, in QUIZ form of course. See how many correct answers you can get on the “Aaron quiz”. (answers will be posted in a few days).
