This week we celebrated Thanksgiving with Jay’s family in Phoenix. It was a traditional turkey feast. We enjoyed the chance to gather with family and friends. Being in Phoenix for Thanksgiving also means plenty of time outside. Jay enjoyed his epic day after ride and I have been hiking almost every day in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. It is a beautiful time to be in the desert.
Tomorrow I start a seasonal job with UPS here in Phoenix. We plan to stay put until the end of the year and earn a little cash before we get back on the road in January. We hope to keep up the volunteer work, biking, and photography and will keep sharing our stories.
