Day 168- We Are Back

Day 168- We Are Back

Hello Hello,

We headed our seperate ways once we got off the plane, back with our families we enjoyed the holiday apart. The last two days of our seven day hiatus I headed to Santa Cruz to spend some time with Shikira's family before we headed back to San Francisco. The quick break flew by and before we knew it we were back in palm springs and headed for Shikira's Aunt's house once again. Since we got in late we would have to wait to hit the road till morning.

Dropped back off at the mobile water tower we had been picked up at, but this time we had a guest. Kira's cousin Ally had joined us for the day. This meant two things: one, we would get to enjoy a three way conversation for most of the day, two, we would be getting picked up once again and get to sleep another night in a bed and near family. We got a late start, but we were not too worried about it. I was also able to start up a tractor that had been left near the water tank and this made the girls smiles.

Our backpacks were loaded down with snacks and that made the day go by much faster. Between snacks Ally and I found high pressure gas lines to walk across. They were anywhere from ten to twenty-five feet off the ground and three feet in diameter. I also chased jackrabbits and generally enjoyed the antics that come along with walking along side a sixteen year old girl.

The last hour or so were a push and after not walking for a week Kira and I were pooped. Ally did suprisingly well and didn't complain as we walked into the night. Just as night fell we stopped at a I-10 exit and waited for our ride.

Off to 5 Guys to get some burgers, this was a first for Kira and me. Back home and with the scrumptous burgers all tucked away in our bellies we hit the sack.

To good food and great family,
