Day 155- Old Friends

Day 155- Old Friends

Hello all,
Easy up and out, we hit the ground with a good momentum. We pushed down 60 toward Mesa. Before we made it into town we hit up a Walgreens in Gold Canyon. We have been doing some Christmas shopping. Following our shopping we had lunch at Red Sage which served up a great rueben. It was here that we met a distance runner. 100 miles in just over 30 hours, I was amazed. He gave us lots of life advice and left just before we dug into our meals.
Next we walked into Apache Junction. It was a desert town that consisted of a lot of houses with hardscaping. As we got closer to Mesa the hardscaping wasn't so nice and the houses turned to RV dealerships and eventually into strip clubs. Night began to fall, but we were on a mission.
Our penpal Bill from TN had bought us a room and given that the area we were in was shady, we were determined to make it to the Super 8. Equally motivating was that Bills sister was in town and we made plans to do dinner with her and Felicia (our friends from Show Low). Two hours of night walking and we finally made it. Upon check in we found out that Jeannine and Felicia would be staying in the room across the hall from ours. After showering our friends arrived and we headed off to Ruby Tuesdays. Kira was so tired she could barely keep her eyes open. We enjoyed a great salad bar and headed back to our room. Nestled in to our bed we slept great with dreams of continental breakfast in the morning.
To bill and his sister (and Felicia) for making us feel so special,
Levi

P.s. facetime rocks because we got to talk with out family back home and see there beautiful faces
