Soooo many questions, so little space to answer. Seligman. look at the town (there's 30 seconds used up right there... then decide. I have used the place mentioned before, but not the others. It was just about what i expected...Not a diamond in the rough, but an adequate sandwich stop at reasonable prices and good conversation .
Your park/fly deal sounds good. Take advantage of it.
Williams... I would get there early and eat at Smokey's The train boards and unloads right by the Lodge at the South Rim. There are some snack-bar types in the immediate area, and several dining rooms within easy walk. We used the car, and carried our picnics with us, so I can't narrow a choice of paid-food anymore than that.
Did you contact any of the tour-boat companies at Page, from the website ? call a couple and find out what is offered in the way of afternoon (late afternoon) rides? I calculated a 2pm or so arrival following the flight plan we outlined earlier.
Misery loves company...My stitchs itch like mad. I have several right up beside my right eye and 12 across the top of my head. The top was fine til I bumped it on the doorjam of my truck this morning. Even the Loritab didn't help that. But a day or two more and it's back to being a handsome Prince (if an overage one at that).
Jerome has several good places on the list. i think you have found one of the more exotic, why not !!
Keep at it, You will be ready a week ahead of time !! Our timing will put us on the road about the 22 of January and return about 20 Feb.Think we will see if Bushie is really a Brain Surgeon who drives Nascar racers in his spare time. routing depends on storm tracks at that time of year for us.
Get well !!
