One of Pam's favorite vacation memories is when she, Dave and her mother, Norma went to Murfreesboro, Arkansas to Crator Diamond State Park (no they didn't find anything) then on to Tennessee to a powpow dance. After this they went on to Loretta Lynn's place in Tennessee, then on to Kentucky to Lost River Cave. They did a lot of shopping along the way.

In her spare time, Pam enjoys crocheting, nifty knitter, knitting, and sewing.
