Saturday Night’s Alright For Commenting: April 14, 2018

Take off your pants and jacket. It’s S.N.O.T. time.

I need your help.

I’m going to the Grand Canyon in two weeks. I’m leaving Thursday after work. I need to be at the Grand Canyon before 5 p.m. Saturday to pick up my permits. I hike on Sunday.

I’m going to be driving. I can get there Saturday sometime. That gives me a day and a half to do whatever I want somewhere in Arizona or New Mexico. As of right now, I have no idea what to do.

I thought about day hiking in the Gila Wilderness outside Albuquerque. I thought about going to Saguaro National Park, but after looking into it more, it seems like a far out place. They have some good backpacking there, the cacti don’t flower for a few more weeks, and I think I want to make a trip out of it on its own. I thought about walking around Phoenix, but the Diamondbacks aren’t in town. I could go walk around Lake Mead, but I don’t know anything about it.

So I don’t know what to do. If you have any advice, give it to me. I need to figure it out this week. There’s an entire day to seize out there for me.

Anyways, that’s all I got. Have fun doing whatever it is that you do. The rest is yours to talk about whatever you want, Texans or not. Just remember the standard commenting rules apply.
