Big news! We're buying another Honda!

Grand Canyon

Our little station wagon is still sitting in front of our house looking sad. Its been a great little car for us, and we will be eternally grateful, but its time has come. Our lovely friend Lisa is selling us her Honda Civic at a bargain basement price, only hitch? WE HAVE TO DRIVE IT HOME FROM VEGAS!

Crazy stuff.

So... we leave Tuesday.

Our plan:

Tuesday: Fly to Vegas, spend the evening with beautiful Lisa and her adorable family.

Wednesday: Get up EARLY and start the 5 hour drive south to the Grand Canyon!!! Mark's ankle is still being a little sore, but we will hike around as much as we can.

Wednesday evening: Continue driving and attempt to get out of AZ and into NM.

Thursday: Albuquerque! We don't know what the plan is here. We may try to eat at a place we saw on Diners Drive-ins and Dives and hit a Trader Joes. Then on to Amarillo, TX.

Friday: We're going to attempt to make it home Friday. We're giving ourselves time to get home Saturday, but who knows!

Any other Route 66 recommendations would be welcomed with open arms! :)
