Yay! We made it to...Flagstaff?!

So, we got a much later start than expected, but we still hoped to power through to New Mexico.

Unfortunately, we got a flat tire about 45 miles west of Flagstaff, AZ. We had a tough time turning the bolts with the tools we had. We called roadside assistance and were told it owuld take 2-3 hours to get someone to where we were. Um. Bummer?

Meanwhile, a pickup truck stopped (we were off the highway in the middle of nowhere - no lights in sight) and a super-nice guy asked if we needed help. He grabbed some things out of his truck and had our spare tire on in less than 5 minutes. Hooray!

Our hero

We made it to Flagstaff on the spare. Tomorrow is Sunday. Will we make it to Chattanooga on time for our wedding?! We still have about 25 hours of driving time left, not including breaks!

I'm sure it will all work out. Right?! :)

Here we are tonight...

  1. You know this whole thing reminds me of that movie away we go! Cept you're starting a life together and not creating one (yet) =).

  2. Hey! I just saw that movie yesterday. I liked it a lot. I went to see "My Sister's Keeper" and the projector broke so my friend Sharon and I had to pick another movie. Since I had seen "UP" 3 times I did not want to see it again so we went to "Away we go" and enjoyed it.
