Day 36, Phoenix, Arizona, Will Departs, Shelby Arrives, May 9th

0 RV miles today, 5494 total

Will left to go back to Shanghai this morning and Shelby & Beth arrived from North Carolina late this afternoon.  I washed “Thumper” today, a fun & monumental task. Jen (my 1st cousin, once removed) & I went out to lunch at Joe’s Farm Grill. She will be starting medical school at U. of Arizona at Phoenix this summer. I did not listen to the sign by the tree!?!? Tom flew in from Texas & we all went out to a Mexican dinner. Our families are combined by parents who were siblings. Hopefully planning a family reunion in 2014.

    Penny and I have had a great time following your posts. Sounds like an amazing trip. We didn’t realize that Will would be joining you. I know you’re glad to have Beth back and Shelby with you now as well.

    How many more days yet to go?
