After landing in Phoenix, we took a shuttle van on to Prescott, where Reid’s mom lives, arriving Tuesday evening. We spent a couple of days hanging out with her and helping with various handyman tasks.

On Thursday, we met up with Chris (she came early too, to visit her grandparents, who also live in Prescott) for some trip shopping, and then in the evening, Charles, Sara, and Kev arrived from Phoenix.

Who’s Who?

  • Reid – trip leader.
  • Erin – Reid’s lovely FW.
  • Charles – Reid’s long-time friend since they were both in diapers.
  • Chris – colleague of Erin.
  • Sara – Erin’s sister.
  • Kev – Erin’s brother-in-law.

Please continue reading on Day 1.
