Missing our girls, dogs, home, routine, beds and sleep. Can't wait for the tomorrow's adventures and can't wait to get home. Loving you at 8000 feet.
Up at 5:30 for breakfast at 6:15. I ate blueberry muffins from the hotel and Jay tried to eat a piece of fruit. Jay isn't sleeping well...or maybe just not enough, she's decided 5:30 is too early for her. We (Dr. Jeff, Dr. Mehai, Dr. Steve, his 14 year old son Alex, Jay and I) headed out to collect in Gila Nat'l Park. Along the way, we stopped at a few desert locations to collect. In the park we hit a few locations, ate another muffin and two Trail bars for lunch, and headed back for a quick shower before we headed out for supper at a Mexican place in Silver City. We couldn't get in to the Mexican restaurant where the rest of the NADS people were eating (Seems Dr. Jim didn't reserve enough tables), so we headed off for Chinese along with Dr. Eric. Dinner was fun...I much preferred Chinese with people I knew over Mexican with strangers. Jay and I popped into the 24 hour WalMart on the way home to pick up a few supplies and found something fun for Heidi too. I made new reservations for Tucson for Friday night, then was told I couldn't cancel Friday at the Hilton in Phoenix...double booked with no refunds...bastards. I packed up all my gear and hit the hay around 11ish. Jay was too beat to do more than watch a little tube and was dodo around 10.
