Mel and I meeting Liz!! YEAH

After not getting much sleep the night before - I was so tired that when I got into bed, I just laid there wide awake.  So annoying! Kept looking at the clock and it was an hour later, and another hour later...I knew I was going to be exhausted for our adventures today!  Brett and I met Melissa and Mel for breakfast and we were on our way, arriving at the Hilton meeting point, right on time.  Inside, Liz and Adrian were apparently having breakfast and as soon as they came out poor Liz was ambushed by Melanie and I who were so excited to meet her!! Poor thing, she's probably rethinking her decision to spend a week with me in Northern California! LOL. 

Soon, everyone was there including Jim (Blenderboy) from Wisconsin!!! We were ready to start the caravan and in our true fashion, it was a hilarious ride out!  Mel, Melissa, Brett, and I were following Harriet, Tim, and Roselle.

The gang traveling to Tombstone and Bisbee (minus Robyn and Donny who were meeting us there)
  Behind us was Nate and Krysta, and Keith and Dema on the motorcycle.  The Phoenix crew was going to meet us there.  Somehow, as usual.....Adrian was lost somewhere but he was with Jim and Dan so we knew he and Liz would make it eventually!

As we were driving down the highway, Mel got the crazy idea to play pass the banana!  We pulled up next to Krysta and Jeff and asked if they had any Grey Poupon...hee hee.  And then Mel asked if they would like a banana.  I wish I had gotten a pic of it but we pulled close to each other and Mel passed the banana out the window to Krysta and we headed on our way!  We thought they were going to pass it back to Harriet up front but they didn't - chickens!! HA HA  For whatever reason, the banana kept resurfacing in photos and various pranks throughout the ride although no one ever did end up eating it!

We pulled over a couple times to take pics and thoroughly harrass poor Melissa.

The three crazies! :D
  Brett and I kept sticking our feet up to tickle her and she had the greatest facial expressions - if looks could kill!!!  :-)  We then stopped in a little small town called Sonoita for gas and munchies.  We found the largest piece of beef jerky ever and Melanie of course had to get it which presented some unique photo opportunities!  As we were preparing to leave and take more photos, Mr. Nate who kept finding ways to jump into pictures, pulled the smoothest move ever!  He spotted us from across the parking lot and DROVE over in behind Mel's picture! HAHA.  He is so crazy but I love them - Krysta and Nate were great to hang out with. 

As we continued on, we passed several border patrol stations and some stuff we wanted to come back and take pics of (I especially wanted the bull statue that was anatomically correct!) Several more miles and we were at Tombstone! :D
