Had fun hanging out with Laura & Jeffrey one last time after getting back from camp on Saturday. Got to go to the Woodland 2nd ward for sacrament mtg on Sunday and hang out for a few hours before I started my drive back to Arizona. I had planned to leave around 11 but it was more around 2pm. These are some pics taken with Laura and Jeffrey <-- the last time I will see him for about 2 years as he leaves August 6 to serve a mission for our church in Durban, South Africa! He is way excited to go and I am very excited for him! He will have some amazing experiences over there I am sure.
Met up with Kokob in Tracy and she gave me her birthday present which I loved! (chocolate cherry bar, bird necklace, lotion & cherry jam/jelly!) Grabbed a cup of ice and a Strawberries & Crème Frappuccino and I was on my way. The drive was alright. I ended up on the 99 instead of i-5 but its okay. The traffic wasnt too bad and I talked to friends the whole way pretty much. Thanks to Tony, Laura, Kokob, Brennen, Rusty, Ashley and Matthew for helping me stay awake! I made it to Mesa a little after 3am and was in to work before 9am.
Adventures on the way home:
- Ghetto ghetto gas station in Victorville and this grandma came over to me when I was pulling up to a pump, crying because she had no money for gas to get to Palmdale and her son and grandson were with her so after I got gas I went in and put $10 on her pump for her. Hope it wasnt a scamish scam...
- 3 CHP (CA Highway Patrol) passed me so fast a bit after leaving Victorville and there was an accident on the left side of the road and on the right side by me a bunch of officers had cuffed a guy in the grass and were pulling him to his feet
- headed more into Phoenix, maybe 2-3 hours away and the guy in front of me was drifting all over his lane and acting real weird so I called 911 and they sent a car out to follow the guy. I ended up passing him eventually, then I passed the cop car hiding out and I dont know what happened after that.
All in all an exciting drive home & I'm glad not to have to make it again til December!
