Cali or Bust!

The day began early when I said goodbye to Mom and Dad and Beth and Julie. An hour later we said goodbye to Krista and left the hotel. Krista stayed until check out and is spending a couple of days with Jamin and Jared. 

These girls are ROWDY sleepers

 Jamin and Jared left their own special goodbye for us to discover. 

Our goal is to do the three day trip back to CA in two days. Today we drove 836 miles (and change); 14.5 hours and ended up in Flagstaff, AZ. We are going to plan a trip to come back and spend a week or two exploring this area before we leave CA. 

It's always a bit "iffy" to pick a hotel sight unseen. We've done well with Comfort Inns and Suites....they were full. We booked quality. This sign may have been a hint.... ::snort:: 

The girls have christened this the "cute retro hotel"....Michael points out it appears to be an old Holiday Inn....and I am pulling out the Clorox wipes....BUT they ARE incredibly friendly and helpful and the location is great for travelers. 

We have another 800 miles and change to drive tomorrow. I'll have to blog about our final day in TX another day. LOL

Hey! I'm in a Quality Inn tonight as well (LOL)! Our is really nice though! I always do choice hotels so I can use the HDLSA MEMBER discount code....

Too funny. We try to always stay at Choice hotels too. Comfort has always been great for us. Quality has been hit and miss. This one was old but workable. LOL We like the choice points and they always say the military discount is their best discount so I wasn't aware we had an HSLDA discount too. ::snort:: I'll have to keep that one in mind when we retire.
