Currently in Goodyear AZ (Low 55 Sunny High 75) 

We have to admit we are a little nervous as our departure date from the valley of the sun approaches. Except for a couple of 'vacations' from the heat

we have been in Goodyear for almost a year and a half and we are so looking forward to getting out of here. Yes you can fry an egg on the sidewalk here during the summer. There were a couple of movies that we wanted to see before we left. First we saw 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2' and we really liked it.

They brought back the cast from the first one which was nice. If you liked the first one then you will like this one. Another movie that if you liked the first one you will like the second one is 'God is Not Dead 2'.

Be sure and stick around to after the credits for some bonus material. A good laugh and an uplifting spiritual film, who could ask for two better movies.

We also have been eating at some of our favorite restaurants one last time.

There is of course shopping for the travels but we are shopping like we won't have any places to shop along the way. We are sure once we get on the road and back into the routine of traveling again it will be OK. And yes there will be shopping along the way. Our summer plans call for us to be in the Kansas City area for about a month and then two months on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. You may be a little nervous, but I bet you're also anxious to be on your way.

  2. Good to hear you will be traveling again. We really enjoyed out time in the UP. So much more to than we had time for. Enjoy.

  3. It won't take you long to get back into the swing of things. Looking forward to getting together with you guys again when we get back in the Fall and hopefully we can't fry an egg on the sidewalk then.

  4. Bet you'll get in the swing of it again after the first day or two. Paul always feels the same way after we've been stationary for an extended period of time, but already he's gotten his mojo back. His back-in here last night was his best one yet! It was a sight to behold. Godspeed on your journeys. When you're in Kansas City, consider eating at Oklahoma Joe's. They are worth a special trip to KC just for that. Also, we think the Steamboat Arabia Museum is one of the best museums we ever visited. I believe the restaurant is on the Kansas side and the museum is on the Missouri side. The UP is a wonderful area to explore as well.

  5. Sounds like you have a nice summer planned especially the UP part. It is a beautiful area, of course, we may be just a little bias since we call Escanaba home. Enjoy and safe travels.

  6. Be safe and have a great trip. We enjoyed the UP of Michigan last summer. Enjoy!
