Well yesterday did not go well, Ed had to go to hospital for blood transfusion (2 Units) his hemoglobin was 8.7 and with the high altitude here it was hard for him to breath, so needless to say I was there for 11 hours, but my sister Danette and husband Tom came up from Phoenix and stayed with me it was nice to spend the time with them. Rich, Brandy and Hunter went to Sedona (we rented a car) and had a real nice time. Today we are suppose to go back to slide waterfall park in Sedona and then tomorrow take a jeep tour. Thursday hope to get to Grand Canyon. ... read more

Efter en nat i "rigtige" senge hos Chuck og Valetta startede jeg med at vaske et par maskiner tøj. Her er helt vildt støvet, så tøjet fra vores quad-ture i går var virkelig snavset. Vi lod ungerne sove længe. Når vi er i vores egen bil, er alle nød til at stå op på én gang. Her er det noget andet. Vi tog en enkelt kop kaffe på terassen, mens vi ventede på ungerne. Da de kom snigende havde Chuck allerede store planer for dagen. Vi startede på et snedigt madsted, hvor vi fik mexikansk morgenmad - MED SODAVAND TIL!!! Det har vi s.. aldrig prøvet før, men maden var god. Forbudt for bedsteforældre: En quad er en 4-hjulet motorcykel. Og jeg siger jer Chuck har ikke noget børnelegetøj. Det er virkelig motorcykler.....men hvad kan der ... read more

Ja historien med AC'en var rigtig nok - næsten. Her til morgen fik jeg snakket med dem vi havde lejet bilen af og fandt ud af at det var så simpelt som en sikring der var gået, det var jeg egentlig selv lidt klar over at det kunne være det, men vidste ikke hvor den hulens kontakt sad. Det viste sig at vi ironisk nok havde sovet på den, det var et panel som var monteret på sengen. Men vi kørte øst på gennem Las Vegas, over Hoover Dam og Videre til Flagstaff. Vi havde lavet en aftale med Chuck og Valetta, Chuck er Mary's storebror som bor i Flagstaff, som vi nåede ned til ved firetiden. Chuck har altid gang i et eller andet og jeg vil tro han er lokal mester i legetøj, som ... read more

Our travels today were only 177 mi. We left at 6 am though because we had several stops to make. At 7 am we had already reached the entrance to the Petrified Forest National Park because we went through a time change when we entered Arizona. The painted desert was amazing. The "forest" was a little disappointiing as they were all petrified fallen chunks of logs. I guess it's one of those things you can say 'been there, done that'. At least the weather cooperated and it was MUCH cooler today, in the 70's. Getting up in elevation around 6000 ft. After we left there, we headed to the Flagstaff KOA campground. Took about an hour to set up which wasn't bad since this is our first night on this trip camping. Then it was on ... read more

We managed to get in a whole 10 hours sleep last night! Must have needed it! We grabbed a quick coffee, loaded up the car and made the one hour journey to the Grand Canyon, we entered via the south which is a first for us as we normally come in the other end. We took in the sights from the various view points along the 30 mile stretch. Liz & Andy both thought it was totally breathtaking. All 3 of them - yes, even Liz, hiked a tiny way down. She did keep telling Niggall and Andy off everytime they went to wander off near the edge. There are literally no barriers, its safety at your own risk! Think we all ended up with a bit of altitude sickness! We left via the east exit ... read more

I just got back from the Grand Canyon as well as the museum and lots of other places such as shops that were there. It wasn't exactly what i had imaged completely but it was similar because I saw some picture of it before. Although it wasn't what I completely thought it was going to be like it was still really amazing, kind to think of it, it was so awesome that i took to many picture and my memory got full. Now i have to decide what pictures to put on because I took a lot of good picture and a lot of picture as well. Before we went of to the car and leave we took one last stop at the museum and after looking inside of the museum we went out side to ... read more

After driving for about an another hour and a half we meet are location at Flagstaff Motel named Econolodge were we will be staying in for two night. I was glad to be in the motel because I wont have to sleep in the car! I get my own bed with Bailey! Riding in the car was negative in some ways and positive. The part that was negative was that it was supper cramped and hot in the daytime. I also got carsick a lot and the heat did not help, so I was happy to be out of the car and sleep in a bed. Here are some of the pictures i took of the motel I took as you can see a picture of were Bailey and I sleep the T.V a couple of ... read more

We're at the motel. Tomorrow, we will be going to the Grand Canyon, and after we will go to see Becky, GabriEila and Darwin. Riding in the car for two days was very strange. I saw the St Louis Arch. We will not be going swimming while we are at this motel because they will be cleaning the pool while we are at this motel. from bailey and natasha... read more

14th, 15th & 16th April No, the bandits haven't got us! (or otherwise known as Flagstaff, Route 66 & Needles) Well, what to tell you. I think the fact that we only took one photo in Flagstaff says it all! It's not that it wasn't nice, in fact it was quite lovely. It reminded us a lot of Fernie, slightly bigger and a little more tired looking. I think it's just that having got used to taking photos of very beautiful places for the past two weeks, Flagstaff scenery just didn't match up. Fair enough there's a big hill there, with a ski resort and lots of outdoor shops, which we certainly made us of, but it didn't tickle our fancy like the National Parks. All in all, Flagstaff turned out to be a bit of ... read more
