Those who party out there, be careful.....

I just found out that someone who I worked with at the North Rim who was working up there this season passed on last night due to choking on their own vomit.....Pretty heavy and unpleasant to post but I just did want to say...those out there who party, be careful.  Please.

Things looking like I can hit the road in June!!!!

As many of you are taking off for wherever your season takes you, I am still here at home in Phoenix, Arizona.  This year has been challenging for me so far and I have had to stick around to help my Mom recovery from cervical (neck/spine) surgery.  For awhile it was frustratingly slow but the past month it has been like BOOM, the pace of recovery has really been picking up.  I don't think it's unrealistic that I can hit the road a month from now, though we shall see.....I am thinking since I…

really itching to hit the road.....

Today it is 9/13, the middle of September. The weather in Phoenix has dryed out a bit and cooled off and right around the corner, maybe about four weeks away, the temps will once again cool off to the point where many people would consider it nice to be here. Usually I am very happy to see this time of the year as it means things will pick up, the utility bills will go down, life will once again be more pleasant here. This year however - I JUST WANT OUT!!! Triggering this is the fact that two… Continue
