So we are at the start of the 215-mile drive from Grand Canyon’s South Rim to its North Rim. We’re hanging out at an overlook called Desert View playing a game of Anagrams when a woman comes up to us:

“Hey! Are you the people from the blog?”

“Depends. Which blog?”

“Our take on freedom.”

“No way! Yeah, that’s us.”

What are the chances! Karly had no idea that we were at the Grand Canyon. She just happened to be walking by a bench at the same time that we were sitting there and recognized us from our blog photos. After introducing us to her husband Steve, we toured each others’ RVs (they have a Rialta) and spent some time chatting.

Karly and Steve are wonderful people and we’re so happy to have met them, but HOLY CRAP what a coincidence! It’s like we’re Z-list celebrities!  🙂

Steve and I really, really enjoyed meeting you!
After seeing you, we we enjoyed wonderful family camping, and all 5 of us hiked into the Canyon twice.

I think I’d fall of the bench if that happened to us 🙂
