Yes, You Can Find Good Pizza At The Grand Canyon

For all of the adventuring Sharon and I do, we tend to be creatures of habit. If we find a place we like, we’re loyal to it. For this reason we end up going to the same three restaurants every time we visit Schlitterbahn. Besides the fact that we like them a lot, when visiting places we’ve been to before we know what we’re going to get.

So when we were going back to the Grand Canyon ten years after our last trip, I was curious to see if one place I remembered was still open. As it turned out, they were and have expanded quite a bit since our visit a decade ago.

And if you can add a little kitsch to it, well, THEN my life is just complete. So when a friend posted an article on Facebook about the Pan Am Experience, my eyes perked up. I did some Continue reading “We’re Going To Do The Pan Am Experience!”

If you have an American Express card and don’t take advantage of AMEX offers, you may be leaving hundreds of dollars a year on the table. AMEX Offers are targeted promotions on your American Express account. If you register for the offer, AMEX will give you money back, or extra points, when you use your card at that merchant. Common examples are to get $10 back when you spend $50 or double Membership Rewards points for purchases for the next 3 months. Since many AMEX cards come with an annual fee, taking advantage of these offers is a wonderful way to offset the┬ácost of the card.
