Journal entry – 5 October 2015, Mon – The Grand Canyon

Journal entries are just that – the digital copy of my hand-written entries in my journal. If you aren’t interested in the daily details of our adventure, feel free to skip on to the next “regular” post.

Last night we headed to bed early, so we both woke well before the alarm this morning. After breakfast we hooked up the trailer and hit the road. Out of the mountains we coasted, though the rest of the day was a long roller coaster of ups and downs as we head south.

Gas dropped from $3.19 to $2.44 in about 80 miles. It almost felt like there had to be a catch, besides the very slow pumps. But we were happy to see the change!

We have 6 days to make a 6 hour drive into Phoenix, so we stop in Flagstaff for wifi and coffee. I get some journal entries ready for Ash to review.

We mosey along and find a Passport America RV park and snag the last spot for the night. We throw our laundry in to wash and go jump in the pool for a few laps before warming up in the hot tub. Then luxuriously long/hot showers before switching the laundry out.

Big ole salads for supper. Apparently we’ve been craving some fresh greens as they were delicious! We finish laundry and then it’s movie time before bed.
