               "It's not a matter of if you will get robbed, but when? and how many times?" said by so many people.....
                So we set off on our Journey leaving from Ellensburg staying the night in Yakima and riding in a car squished in with 45lb backpacks on our laps for practically 25 hours straight we arrive in Phoenix in record time. Singing church hyms all the way.

                 Savannah: "Honestly I'm scared, but Raina believes it's all karma so nothing could possibly happen to us

.----- insert: no, i never said that. i don't think its ALL karma and for the record i rarely use the word karma its played out. i think thinking good thoughts and doing good things helps to bring good to me. BUT, i know realities collide and bad things happen. i'm just try'na be positive here. like, wats the point in being afraid? don't forget fear is a control techinique!!! ------

 Despite all the people garaunteeing us death if we travel this journey by land, she still believes we will live through it.
                 It's not the living through it or the not living through it that I'm worried about though, it's the being tortured for Ransom, raped, chopped and sliced and held hostage for years..... Okay I shouldn't say that out loud, but while picking pears in preparation for this, I was told "better pack a little black pill or a gun with one bullet, because we in mexico love torturing people, and do not give a second thought to sending you home with a ransom note one body part at a time."
        It's not that I'm scared of Death. But,
It's just not as simple as life and death it's everything in between that I'm worried about.

I'm not so sure if I believe in Karma, but I do in destiny and so I guess I can't control what happens, and even though I am worried about going I can't stop myself from going.

So despite all the warnings and physical evidence that there is a pretty good chance that two girls traveling alone hitchiking are just setting themselves up to get into trouble, we plan to take off leaving phoenix on the morning of November 11th twords the Mexican border with only Karma on our side.
