It has become a constant theme lately waking up at 6:00 am. I was extremely happy seeing the group performing this morning getting ready to leave. Being ready to go early we said our goodbyes to generous Jim. Jim for our brief encounters was most hospitable and eager to help in any way possible with a smile on his face. Before saying our final goodbyes he gave us some Yum Yum Donuts and we hit the road. It felt really weird being in the front country again, dealing with loads of driving, cooking again, cooking in a giant kitchen, and having tons of homework. The big difference this time is that we are on our way home. The last transition has come so fast and after one last adventure to the Grand Canyon we have complete our journey. I have dealt with many transitions in the past but none like this… Time to get back to HFC and face the real world.
