Time for another Road Trip!
Michelle, Steve, Chelsea, Josh, Travis and Erich
It has been awhile since the Schiller, Schrader and Sampson (part Schrader, part Sampson) got together. The last get together was Chelsea's Graduation from college (when I think about it, it really wasn't that long ago) and it Chelsea thought we needed to get together again.
Where to meet? Indiana? Been there done that. Besides Chelsea and Josh need to get out of country bumpkin-ville every once and awhile.
Minnesota? No way eh! Too hot, too humid. Okay, that may not be true but I can't think of any other reason not to go there in the summer. If the trip was planned for the winter, the main reason not to go would be, it's too fucking cold. Mental note for future winter invitations.
Colorado? No, we already live here. Duh
Arizona? Ding, ding, ding. Yep, Sedona as a matter of fact.
I know what you're thinking. Arizona in August? Too ducking hot (damn spell check).
We (Michelle) were tasked to find a place for all of us to stay in Sedona. After some searching Michelle thought we should rent the house in Sedona that we rented back in 2009. It was the perfect choice! We have all been there before (less Josh) and we really liked the house.
After a few emails, Michelle was able to secure the house for the requested dates. Woo hoo!
The real reason for the trip is to take Julie's ashes to the Grand Canyon. Both Chelsea and Michelle have been lugging the ashes around for a few years and it is time to take Julie to her final resting place. Lugging may not be the right word here but Julie would think it was funny.
Julie's parents are already there and are awaiting her arrival.
