For the second time in two years, I made the 28-hour drive from Jacksonville to Tucson in Anthony’s pick up truck.
We drove 10 hours to Lafayette, LA the first day, 10 hours to Ft. Stockton, TX the second day and 8 hours to Tucson on the third day, where Anthony dropped me off at my Aunt Sandy’s house.
We were so blessed to be one day ahead of the devastating hurricane Harvey, as we drove through Houston the day prior. Other than some brief rain and numerous highway signs warning drivers to avoid the Texas coast, we traveled without any difficulties.
I did borrow Aunt Sandra’s car to drive up to Phoenix on Wednesday to visit Anthony at Grand Canyon University and see his apartment.
I took him to Costco to stock up on groceries and household supplies.
We also went to a few Goodwill stores to find a tv stand and two kitchen chairs for a total of $12!
It was good to spend time with the college boy and help him get set up in his apartment.
I wish him a great third year of college!
