So funny. When I was a kid, every year our ward used to have an over-nighter campout in Yuciapa to celebrate Pioneer day. They'd have square dancing and they would always play this song and everyone would line dance to it. Funny how this song makes me think about Pioneers. Thanks for bringing back happy memories.
Andrea,Someone was just telling me, the other day, how their bishopric would always sing this song on ward camp-outs. It didn't matter who was in the bishopric. It was a requirement. You get called, you get to sing Elvira at the camp-out. Funny that this song is linked to tradition in at least one other ward. I wonder how many others are on board? Maybe we should all start Elvira traditions in our wards, too.
I remember rocking out to that song with you in the back of my parents van [that had no seats] on an 8 track
I would consider listening to Elvira somewhat of a spiritual experience.
