Every Which Way But Loose Photo Album

Southwestern Fall Road Trip - October 2014

Early in the new year, we figured I would be spending the better part of spring doing renovations in my home in preparation of selling. Then I was going to the Hanover Reunion in August and we had no idea when my property would actually sell and I would have to be packing. The only solution was to postpone any travels until late fall.

Doreen had absolutely no desire to drive through any more blizzards on a fall trip. There was only one solution - fly.

That decision made, it didn't take us long to book flights and car rentals. We still plan on doing a road trip - the only difference would be that we would fly to Vegas and home.

Pool friends of ours - Deana and Alex will be in Cave Creek during our travels so we booked 3 nights at Villas of Cave Creek during the time that they will be there. What we will be doing from Vegas to Cave Creek and back to Vegas remains a mystery - and we love a good mystery.
