Illegal Arizona

Landed in Arizona at noon. That was nice. Getting out of bed at 3 AM to make that happen was not. Rented a car and drove from Phoenix to Prescott. Stopped by Wolfe Publishing‘s new office to visit with Roberta & Dave Scovill and Lee Hoots and then drove on in to the motel in Prescott.

All those involved in the class went to dinner and Il Ling who will be a primary instructor for the class set at our table. Il Ling took her first Gunsite class from Colonel Cooper when she was in college. She has a very down to earth personality and it will be interesting to see how she handles the ladies in the class.

I would like to share more but the bed looks inviting and I am beat.

For what its worth, during our drive we did not get pulled over and asked about our citizenship status.
