On the Road to Chinle, Day 1

10 Jan

Yesterday at midnight our 13 person caravan took off for a 16 hour road trip to Chinle,AZ…yes, we are CRAZY! You would think that with  that many people, 3 of them kids, something would go wrong, but surprisingly enough everything went really well.  In my carload,  i was the only girl with with 5 guys. So you can imagine that there was a little bit of “strange fire” Up in there!  Lol  But for the most part,  they were gentlemen. 


Sometime around 3 am, I took over the driving.  The only way I was gonna be able to pull that off is if I listened to a book.  So I downloaded an audio book from Lynn Austin, God’s and Kings,the first book from her Chronicles of the Kings series,  which I highly recommend!  That book helped me stay wide awake for a good 3 hours…until out of nowhere I started seeing flying  dinosaurs! I was so tired I started seeing things!  Just close your eyes, and imagine me driving down a long, dark country road somewhere in the middle of Texas. I’m sitting there gripping the steering wheel, focused on the road, with an intense look on my face as I’m listening to the audio book, when all of a sudden, I look over because something catches my attention. I did a double take because that’s how convincing the image was, of a flying dinosaur!  It was a sight to see, that’s for sure!



Once we finally got out of Texas, which felt like FOR-EVER, the temperature dropped, the scenery was incredible, and the snow began to fall!  It was so beautiful, especially once we were a couple of hours from Chinle. The roads were a little more narrow, and that snow was coming down! 




We finally made it to Chinle at about 5 pm yesterday, checked in the hotel and had a quick dinner with Pastor Artie and Sandra.






Tomorrow I’ll blog about what we did today!
