I didn’t have to go far from Phoenix to get 2018 rolling. On the agenda was the Xscapers Annual Bash. This would be a chance to catch back up with old friends and meet a TON of new ones as well. It was more of a “rolling” party this time. The first week was in a new location in Quartzite, AZ and the second week moves over
to American Girl Mine area in Winterhaven, CA. My friend Steve was able to get a “kitchen pass” and come join me as well. To say it has been an amazing time would be a huge understatement. I have made lots of new connections and strengthened existing ones. I was able to connect with a whole new group of solo travelers such as myself. I stayed in AGM beyond the annual bash, I am actually still here as I write this. We still have a pretty awesome group and many of us are rolling on to Anza Borrego to keep the fun going. There has been campfires, Jeeping, mountain biking, hiking, movie nights, game nights, tons of trips to Mexico for tacos and
even a dental visit for teeth cleaning (and perhaps a bit of beer drinking mixed in there). The Superbowl party on Sunday was AMAZING. We were treated to an awesome game, there was crazy good food and the weather was perfect. We capped off the night with an outside screening of We’re The Millers (rapidly becoming a cult classic with this group). Yet, with all the fun, Sunday was also a very difficult day as well. It marked the one year anniversary of my losing Toni. I managed to get out on my MTB to think and get some solitude for a few hours. I still cannot wrap my head around the fact that a year has already passed. I think of Toni each and every day. She gives me the strength to keep pushing forward and discover what my future will hold. It was so great to be surrounding by such good friends on a tough day and I am so blessed to have the support system around me that I do.
