We awoke at 3am to leave Milwaukee yesterday and it was 53 degrees. Arrive in Phoenix to 106. That's right, it exactly doubled. So good to see John and Angela again. They have a lovely home at the base of the McDowell Mountains in Scottsdale. Jay Glazer from Fox Sports lives right next door.
Hung around the pool in the afternoon. I'm drinking more water than I ever have before. I haven't been to the desert since I was a kid. I'm going to buy a cactus in a box and bring it home.
We went to the Twisted Lizard down the street and Danny and Justin came with. They are both going to school out here and avoiding the Midwest winter.
We woke up this morning and did a 2 hour hike. Whoa, it was hot but we made it. 35 stories up of winding trails. Not sure how the cowboys did it in the 1800's with limited water sources back then.
We're hitting the minor league baseball parks this afternoon then dinner at the Blue Martini. Taking tons of pictures and will probably put them on next Tuesdays blog as I'm borrowing a computer right now. Blogs might be sporadic as we don't get back until Monday night and we're on the go hang fun. Kris soaking up the sun will probably be the tannest person in Wisconsin when we get back home!
