Arrived in Chicago to visit the bros and their families for the weekend. Went to our traditional yearly youth soccer game where Phoebe scored two goals, one on a penalty kick. The participation trophy was bittersweet however, since they lost the game due to the three goals scored on her during her turn in goal. Oh well, tomorrow's another day.

Drove in the rain all day today. Thank god for those noble knights of the road, the truckers, who make bad conditions worse as they ferry crap flipped on eBay and junk from Amazon and the dollar stores back and forth across the country. Ended up within an easy drive of Chicago but not close enough to hear the gunfire, it is the weekend after all.

Still thrashing our way across the country, we put New Mexico and Texas behind us and most of Oklahoma as well. It was interesting to see the hope represented by the extensive wind farms in Texas dashed by the played out fracking wells that dot the otherwise pretty rolling prairie here. Folks trading quick cash for an early painful cancer death.

We bade a fond farewell to Mike and Lizzie and then made our escape from the sprawl of LA. The driving song: We drove and drove and drove some more, drove some more, drove some more. We drove and drove and drove some more, and then we drove some more.

Look ahead as we pass, try and focus on it I won't be fooled by a cheap cinematic trick It must have been just a cardboard cut out of a man Top-forty cast off from a record stand Walkin' in L.A. Walkin' in L.A., nobody walks in L.A. Anyway, we drove to LA today, apparently with everyone else. We'll be visiting Mike and Lizzie for a few days

It's not as hot here as the normal southwest, so we decided to get a late start hiking. Skipping the Disneyworld level of crowds at the main park, we opted for a road less traveled. It was dirt and took us to a little used part of the park and hiking thru groves of Joshua trees, flower and cactus blooms and spectacular mountain and valley views.

Back on the road today. After hugs and a hearty via con dios, we once again headed west and as usual we had no firm destination in mind. Mommy researched while daddy beared down on the accelerator. As it happened we ended up in 29 Palms, poised for a foray into Joshua Tree National Park tomorrow. I don't know who Joshua is, but he has a tree, so...

Our final day in Tuscon was pretty relaxing, helping Phil and Sue get ready for their trip back east in a couple of days. Then an early trip downtown for a nice farewell dinner. The restaurant even had a separate menu just for dogs. Not being a real dog, I shared something with Cody. It sure seemed like it was the same food our people were eating.

A big day here in the sunny desert. My friend Cody and I went to have a spa day at the groomer while the people went off to see if there was an actual town. It turns out that there is one, including the Congress Hotel where Dillinger was once captured (he got away later, but in Indiana not here). They had way better Mexican food than in Willcox.

After an excellent breakfast cooked by Phil (The Grandma person in Willcox is probably wondering where we are today), daddy and I took a short sea voyage in the pool. Daddy needed to even out his tan, which got effed up on yesterday's epic canyon hike. I'm not sure if I have a tan or not,
