1. My first plane trip in First class

2. My first experience in picking up hitch-hikers

This is what it looks like when all the flights leaving Flagstaff get cancelled. When we got to the Airport and tried to return the rental car the Avis guy suggested we hold onto it because if we returned it there would be no chance of getting another car if our flight got cancelled. YAY for the Avis guy!  Our flight got cancelled an hour later. So we made nice with the Airline guy and got the last two seats on a flight out of Phoenix to Detroit this evening. These last two seats happened to be in First class. So, yay!  Then we drove to Phoenix Airport, which is where I am now. Instead of getting home at 7pm, we’ll get home at 1:30 am.

This is what the first 45 minutes of the drive looked like

The last 45 minutes looked like this.


When we were at the Flagstaff Airport we were approached by a woman. She had apparently over-heard us and asked if she and her husband could ride with us to Phoenix. We stuffed in their luggage and them, in the back of our little car and off we went!

They were very nice.

All in all, this was a very good vacation!

Oh, and I didn’t bring my nook this trip because I never have time to read. So, while I’m sitting in an airport for four hours, I bought an actual book!

  1. how kind of you to take them with you.  not such a common occurrence these days.I’ve never traveled first class in a plane.

  2. It was nice of you to help them. I’m very wary of strangers these days. And I’m impressed that the Avis guy warned you! Thumbs up!

  3. That is just crazy…..obviously they had not heard of your vacation driving experiences before they got in the car with you.   Hahahahaha. Oh.  It was Arizona not Iowa….We r flying out of Akron/canton at 0700. Phil just said. We need to stop and have lunch with them sometime     …… anxious to hear the stories in person next month

  4. That’s cool that you picked up fellow travelers.
