We leave Sam’s at 10:13 am. saying goodbye to Shannon and Chris and promising to keep in touch and definitely get together next year. We will cross our fingers that the world get’s back to normal.
March 28 – 29, 2020
We spend two and half days at Quartzsite hiking the area and coming to terms with the fact we are going home early, the pandemic and the chaos around us. The weather is fantastic and everything still feels surreal. I keep hearing from people at home wondering where we are and why we haven’t started heading home. The truth is we are isolated and safe in the desert but know we have to go home. We also know that once we get home we have to self isolate for two weeks. We decide to pick up all our groceries prior to crossing the border so we don’t have to ask anyone to shop for us, which would put them at risk. Our journey home starts tomorrow.
