Back Home

I actually got home from my vacation close to three days ago, but I’ve been running myself so ragged since then that I haven’t had a change to sit down and blog.

First off, Arizona absolutely rocked. It was the middle of January, I was walking around in shorts, and it wasn’t because I’d lost a bet.

I spent most of the vacation in the Phoenix area. We went to Rawhide one night, which is a Old West-themed park and restaurant. Seriously, how often do you get to eat fried rattlesnake and ride mechanical bull within 100 yards of each other?

I tried my hand at riding an ATV and had a blast. Came home covered in mud, but had a blast all the same.

There was one day spent in Tucson, where we hit the Pima Air & Space Museum, AMARC, and Saguaro National Park.

Some of the other highlights of the trip included dueling pianos at The Big Bang and wandering around the Tempe/Arizona State University area. We drove by the football stadium and it is just massive.

Aside from the battery picking an inopportune moment to die, the new toy fared nicely. I snapped over 100 photos during the week and my friends contributed another 100. I should have the pictures posted once I get Gallery working.

…and to prevent future untimely battery deaths, I’ve already eBay-ed two more batteries.

Suffice it to say, I would definitely like to get back to Arizona at some point. In fact, some friends and I have already begun talking about a trip to go rafting in the Grand Canyon.
