We’ve been hanging out with Mike & Heidi since arriving in Carlsbad on the 26th. Scott and Mike were in the same engineering program at Virginia Tech and were housemates for a year. Mike was a groomsman at our wedding. The last time we were all together was at their wedding in 2010.
Arriving at their house, it was like Christmas. We had a stack of packages waiting for us to open. We have been using their address to ship replacement parts for our preparation into Mexico. After 6 months and over 6000 miles, things are starting to show wear.
It was wonderful to spend a few days with Mike and Heidi. The guys got to catch up, regressing only occasionally to their juvenile selves. Though time had passed, it was nice to see them pick up where they had left off, as old friends do.
We are headed out tomorrow to meet Scott’s parents. They are flying to San Diego for a visit before we venture south across the border.
