Geezer IX - Wrapping It Up

The Trip Home

Today we head for home and I have to admit, we are both ready.  We had a great time in Flagstaff and Las Vegas, but after being gone so much the last two and a half months, we are really looking forward to being home for a while.
As usual it took us a while to get up and packed so we didn’t get on the road until 10:30.  We made our usual stop at the Primm Outlets at the California border so we could shop at the Williams Sonoma Outlet store and have a rice bowl for lunch at the Lotus Express.

We had an audio book to listen to on the way home so the time passed quickly, but because of our late start and time spent shopping, we didn’t get home until around 7:30.  It felt good to be home, but there was still that let down feeling at the end of the trip.

Final Thoughts

There is nothing better than getting together with our old friends for our annual “Gathering of Geezers”.  It doesn’t matter where we go or what we do, we all just have a good time being together, catching up on our lives and of course being geezers, talking about our health.  For three of the last four years we have met in Wyoming or Idaho where fall comes early so we thought we would have warmer weather in Arizona – not quite, we got rain and cool temperatures.  It was actually warmer last year in Wyoming.  No matter though, we still had a great time and are already looking forward to next year, our tenth annual gathering.  We also had a good time in Las Vegas, not the best gambling, but that’s why they call it gambling.  Good food and good times made for a fun time.  All in all, it was another great trip (is there ever a bad trip?).

As I said before, we are planning on being home for a while.  We may take a short trip or two, but our next major trip will be next April when we travel to Hawaii with our good friends Doug, Ev, Cathy and Heather.  We have rented a house near Kona on the Big Island and will be spending 10 days enjoying Hawaii and our time together.  That’s all for now, so we'll see you on down the road.
