Blast Off was at 0650 hrs. Yup!
The car was loaded up the night before; food made and packed. Everything turned off or down. We made only three stops in total, one for a bathroom break at Sunset Point Rest Stop in Arizona and then 2 times for gasoline. One stop we made for gas in Jacob Lake Arizona the gas was $4.14/gal … WHAT?!
We made it to Bryce Canyon City Utah by 4pm AST or 5pm MST. We found our room, got settled and then went across the street to have dinner at Ruby’s Inn, which is the sister hotel to where we stayed, which by the way is so nice!
We had the Soup & Salad buffet $8.99 and then added on the ice cream (ice milk really) bar for $1.99 each. I had started to chat up our waitress, Lesa, only to find how much she loved having gone to Hawaii and staying at the Marriott timeshare in Ko’Olina. Both she and her husband loved the food in Hawaii and they even went over to the Windward side (where I’m from), HOW’S THAT? We were very tired so it was off to bed. Oh, I forgot to say we saw, I mean, I saw my first elk (I’ve never seen one before). This going to be a GREAT month long adventure!
