So we're going to Spring Training in March, during Stephanie's Spring Break.

But before most of you get all excited...we're going the wrong direction. Yeah, we're going to Surprise, Arizona. Right. Texas Rangers Spring Training.

I'm doing this for Stephanie. Plus we've always wanted to go to Arizona anyway. We've never been there.

So here's the plan. We fly out on my birthday, March 13. We land in Phoenix (after a layover in El Paso), and drive to Surprise, where we will check into our hotel. We'll probably just look around some the rest of Friday, find where all the players are and stuff like that.

Saturday, it's back to Phoenix for a game against the hated White Sox at their home field. Then Sunday, we go to a game in Surprise against the Padres at the Rangers home field.

Monday morning, we pack up and head north, probably to a cabin somewhere in Munds Park. Tuesday, we will more than likely drive to Williams, where we will get on a train that will take us to the Grand Canyon, where we will take "motorcoach" tour of the area.

We have one more game back in Surprise on Thursday, with the A's before we fly back home on Friday.

Should be fun. I'm looking forward to seeing all of the beautiful landscape in Arizona.

Sounds like a great trip, Bickley. Take a bunch of pictures so we can see how it goes!
