Meet Up with Swindlings
We pulled out of Williams this morning around 8:30 in time to get to Flagstaff by 10:00 for our appointment. The drive was pretty. We waited in the RV for a little while until someone was able to come out and look things over then it was into the waiting room for a while. There was another truck driver in there too. He was kind and gave us the remote but some of those old shows were on and they were better than other things that were probably on TV so we watched some Beverly Hillbillies, Gunsmoke and Bonanza. Once things were finished at the Freightliner shop we headed north toward Kaibab Forest to meet up with Swindlings.
We thought we had gone further than we should have so we called Rick and Vickie. Rick said he would take the van out to the main road and wait for us. As it turned out, we had passed an air museum but not he airport as of yet so we were OK. We hadn't gone too far afterall. When we spotted them, we followed them right to the campsite. There are spaces to boondock on the south side of the canyon and it's free.
We went to dinner across the road then spent the rest of the evening visiting while sitting around their camp fireplace and getting ready for our hike tomorrow in the Canyon.
