I wondered if those two degrees would make a difference, but Deb had already made the reservations.
While visiting my cousin Deb in Phoenix, AZ, she said we were going on a centipede tour. Deb said she wasn’t sure because she had never gone on one, but she wanted to. We looked up centipede tours on the guide map of things to do in Phoenix, AZ. The centipede tour is a guided Arizona desert tour by ATV. I had never been on an ATV, and I wasn’t sure Deb had ever been on an ATV. Neither of us was sure it was something we wanted to do, but we were both adventurous. We read more about the Centipede Tour because it sounded cool. Everyone had their own ATV for the off-road tour across the Sonoran Desert. There was a rocky trail in the Bradshaw Mountains and we would cross the Agua Fria River. The tour guide talked about the plant life, wildlife and history of the area. Our tour would have started at 3 PM and the temperature was 101 degrees. I looked at the temperature and knew that when our three-hour tour was up, the temperature will have risen, but it was going to drop to 99 degrees. I wondered if those two degrees would make a difference, but Deb had already made the reservations. If I thought it was hot at 101 degrees, I didn’t realize how much hotter it would be while wearing all the special clothing. I wished I had a space outfit on that was air-conditioned on the inside. I felt like a prune till I got off the ATV. My skin was shrivelled from the sweat, and all I wanted was to go back to her house and spend the rest of my holiday in the air conditioning.
