Show trip route
We were up at the crack of dawn to get a little mini van at 8.00am that was to take us out of the small town of Show Low and on to Phoenix which was about 4 hours away. This was the only way to get there a small 10 seater mini van!
While waiting for the van to load up we were praying that certain people who appeared to be waiting for the bus wouldn't sit near us!! Luckily the lets just say slightly large gentlemen sat in the front of the van. unfortunatley we had a young man behind us who stank of............. well i'm not sure what it was but his breath left alot to be desired!
After a few stops along the way, we finally arived in Phoenix. We were warned that it was hot, but i don't think anything prepared us for the heat that was abut to hit us when we got out of the van. Incidentley the van dropped us off at some pokey little burger place on a main road and not downtown as we had expected! Anyway, as soon as we got off the van the heat hit us! It was like stepping into a furnace! It must have been at least 120 and with all the traffic and buildings around giving off heat it must have been even hotter that that!
There was no hope of us getting another car somewhere else as it was Saturday and the car place was shut, so we had to decide whether to stay here till monday and get a car while suffering in the excessive heat or get a bus the hell out of there. We quickly decided on the latter. We walked down to the greyhound bus station in the heat and when we arrived it was like heaven stepping into the air conditioned building!
We checked the buses and decided to head to San Diego later that evening (about an 12 hour wait!) While waiting in the bus station though we had a change of heart and thought lets go to Las Veags! So we changed our tickets and boarded the 8.45 bus to Vegas!
