Grand Canyon, AZ
Summer 2008- While on vacation, my dad and stepmom and I rented a vehicle from Avis (idiots) to take us from Vegas to the Grand Canyon. It got a flat tire, and when my dad and I tried to change it, we realized it had a locking nut. We looked for the special wrench to unlock it, but there was none to be found. So long story short, I ended up hitchhiking to the canyon with an Escalade full of Canadians (who were really awesome) and spent the day waiting for a tow truck with a Hualapai Indian named Whataname (Wha-ta-na-me). This is how I remember the day- beautifully inspiring and exhaustingly stressful.
