We wanted more time with family and friends in Tucson. One more round of thinning out stuff we don't need, picking up a few things we do, and getting Bertha ready to head east.

When we were planning this trip earlier in the year we both thought it'd be a fun idea to bring the tent along so that we could camp outside once in a while at some key spots. Mainly we wanted to hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and camp there. So we also brought along an external frame pack that a friend gifted to us before we left.
