I am planning to leave work 5/19 and take a 8 day trip to Bermuda, come back bartend for about 3 weeks then travel to Vegas for a week and then go to the Grand Canyon and backpack for another 8-10 days. Then I am going to come back home bartend a few more weeks and move to Houston. I figure that this is really my last chance before retirement to take a bunch of trips in one summer, so might as well take full advantage of it! What is there to feel guilty about? Enjoy your time off and unwind, because you will hit the ground running come August!
you are going backpacking in Grand Canyon in July? That's....HOT!!!
We did that last year to/from Havasuapai. It was not too bad, just had to carry a little more water than was convenient. Ill post the pics here. It was BEAUTIFUL. We are doing the Rim to Rim hike this time. Starting on the south rim (hot, but going down hill) and climbing out at the north rim where the average high is only 75 (not bad). Anyways, here are the pictures:
