    Flying to Phoenix

    September 28, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 72 °F

    I got up early and left CAM at 5:30, thinking I would “try” for the 9:30am flight. LBJ traffic was light. I parked the RAV4 at Terminal D, took a picture of the location so Loyal and Cathy could find it later and proceeded to go through security, the agent said that if I headed over to Terminal A I could make the 7:00am flight.

    With 4 minutes to spare, I made it for the 7am flight.

    After I arrived in Arizona Glenn and I did a letterbox at some gardens. It is hot here. 100+

    “We’re giving our wheels a rest” as we have been blessed with a week at a hotel property here in Scottsdale. Thank you friends!

    Moving Day

    October 4, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 102 °F

    We enjoyed our 7 day stay at Villa in Scottsdale.

    We drove 3/4 hour to pay a visit with Norma. I first met her 4 years ago on a cruise and she also joined us our February 2020 cruise.

    Then today, we stopped at Zach Whaleys home and shared our journey with him and his family. Zach has come to Guatemala and we’ve hosted him as he did some major counseling with some missionaries.

    He encouraged us and said “don’t feel guilty for something you can’t control. Turn that into being blessed.”

    We are now at the Wycliffe Bible Translator’s Center just north of Tucson. Glenn is meeting folks from the Mexico branch.

    Desert Botanical Garden

    February 18, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Today was well spent walking the garden at the Desert Botanical Garden. We saw and learned a lot about Desert Botany, and got to take in a neat art exhibit displayed around the garden. They also have a lovely (but expensive) gift shop. We looked around in there while waiting for a table where we had a fabulous lunch. Overall, super pleasant dayRead more

    Kayla rides a train!

    February 20, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Today was all about relaxing. We mostly just hung around, swam in the pool, did our laundry and then puttered around some more.

    I saw a few days ago that the Arizona Science Centre hosts an event about once a month called Lasers and Liquor. We took the LRT from Mesa to downtown Phoenix and went to the show. We saw both sets. Beyoncé first, and then the Rolling Stones. It was super fun! But could have been even more fun in Canada. 😉🍁Read more

    The Great Fair!

    February 21, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Today we spent a good chunk of the day in Fountain Hills exploring a huge craft show. Like, mega huge. I bought a bird whistle thing (that I have yet to master), and ate some loaded fry bread and funnel cake. There was so much talent, and cool things that I would have loved to buy if I had unlimited funds. We also saw this huge fountain that the town is named for, and we saw these cute ducks.

    Made it to Phoenix

    February 16, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    First stop, Mexican food from Asi Es Mi Tierra (which we inhaled because all we ate before that was sky cookies and an apple), and then, Dillard's.

    UPDATE: I was so tired when I wrote this I forgot to mention we saw the Grand Canyon from the plane!Read more

    Wallace has a birthday!

    February 19, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Today was Wallace's 29th birthday. We started slow, but we went to the mall and shopped a bit. (I got some killer deals on bathing suits!) And then went for lunch. The intention was to go to Famous Dave's, but the location we tried to go to as closed, so we went to Joe's Real BBQ. Holy. Crap. BBQ food will never be the same after that. We then walked around this street in Gilbert and got dessert at a place called Creamistry. They make liquid nitrogen ice cream to order. I wish I had gotten a picture of that because it was super neat. They also had a killer coconut ice cream base that was creamy and perfect.

    After stuffing ourselves silly, we went to find Golfland Sunsplash. The Sunsplash part is a water park that is closed for the season, but we played a round of mini golf here, and then Wallace and I indulged our inner child in the arcade, go kart track and laser tag. There was virtually no one here on a Wednesday afternoon, so we had the whole place to ourselves.

    After playing our hearts out, we headed to the airport to pick up Wallace's dad, picked up some birthday Krispy Kreme donuts, ate more than re food, and passed the heck out.

    1.Tag USA

    March 31 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 27 °C

    Phoenix. Die Sonne brennt! Aber nicht so stark wie in Cancun. Der gestrige Reise Tag endete in etwa so wie der nach Cancun. Wahnsinnige Kopfschmerzen die bis heute nachwirkten. Einzig und allein schuld ist bestimmt nicht die Maske, aber ich bekomme nie so extreme Kopfschmerzen wie ich sie jetzt auf diesen beiden Flügen hatte auf denen ich für so irre lange Zeit durch so einen Stück Stoff atmen musste.
    Nach etwas Medikation wurde es dann abends noch besser, heute morgen habe ich aber direkt wieder eine IBU genommen.
    Somit wurde ich gestern Abend auch von Becky überzeugt, nicht direkt morgens wieder abzureisen. Hätte auch gar nicht geklappt, da ich abends nicht mehr in der Lage war einzukaufen.
    Heute war ich dann zum resupply beim Walmart. Hab dort auch eine Prepaid Karte gefunden für deren Aktivierung ich jedoch erstmal Internet brauche, welches Becky daheim nicht hat. Abwarten.
    Beim bezahlen im Walmart wurde mir gesagt dass mein Kreditkarten-PIN falsch ist. Hab nochmal nachgeguckt, allerdings hat das nicht mit der eigentlich richtigen Nummer funktioniert. Da muss ich jetzt mal gucken wie ich ne neue Nummer dafür bekomme.
    Bargeld hatte ich keins dabei, also musste ich mit einem Uber mal eben zurück zum Haus und dann direkt wieder zu Walmart. Hatte nicht wirklich Bock nochmal durch den ganzen Laden zu laufen und die Sachen wiederzufinden, somit hab ich meinen Einkauf an der Kasse gelassen und dann einfach nochmal alles scannen lassen und bar bezahlt.
    Ich war wohl etwas hungrig, denn der Essensbeutel ist verdammt schwer geworden. Allerdings weiß ich ja auch nicht wie viele Tage ich bis zur Grenze und wieder zurück brauche.
