The ride from Charlotte to Phoenix was nice, long, but nice. Meals are different in 1st class. We also got to watch the in-flight movie for free. Good thing Rocky Balboa was free – I found it contrived and heavy handed, but it occupied 90 minutes of the flight.
Phoenix is a big airport with all their rental cars services consolidated in one off-site location. We have a nice rental car – a brand new Suburu Forester – but it took us 90 minutes in line to get it.
We drove an hour south of Phoenix towards Tucson and stayed overnight in a Best Western in Casa Grande. We watched the end of the UNC/USC NCAA game last night before turning in.
There is a railroad running through Casa Grande with a train every hour. I didn’t hear it during the night, but this morning as I awoke on eastern standard time I heard every warning whistle.
A little yoga this morning helped stretch out the travel stiffness and now we head to breakfast and Tucson.
