Grand Canyon for Thanksgiving has much of its framework in place. We will be sharing space with llamas, and frighteningly for us, the trip involves connections through Newark. But Norway, Nome, Houston, and NH will all converge on Williams by various routes.
I am starting off by visiting one son in Houston, from whence we will take the Sunset Limited along the Mexican border for 27 hours to Maricopa, AZ a small city almost completely surrounded by Indian communities. We like each others’ company well enough, but this may be more than our personalities were designed to bear. Fortunately, we both like our own company for long stretches as well. We’ll have books, he’ll have a laptop and podcasts to supplement. Hmm, perhaps I need to find something that can play into my ears as well.
