Day 1 of #kidneydoc was great!

There was no way I was getting a full night’s sleep last night, so I was up at 6 and ready to get on the road! I picked up Jimmy at around 9:15 and we were on the road by 9:45.
My friend Matt loaned me his roof rack, so we could get a cargo carrier for our luggage. Well, the cargo carrier sucks. It was really windy today, and one of the straps broke. No big deal, as there are about 8 straps on it. But, the carrier creates drag, especially in the wind. We also got a chip in the windshield before we even left Phoenix! We got to the hotel around 4, and Kim was already there waiting for us! We had a great time together and the filming was fun. She brought her family by after dinner, so I could meet them. I actually had her mom as a friend on Facebook first, because she is the one who found the Living Donors group on Facebook. That’s Melody. Her husband Travis, son Jager, and daughter Joplyn came along, too. I can’t wait to see them the next time I come up here!

I messaged all of the donors to let them know the new dates of our arrival. The next two days are in LA, and there’s going to be a lot of cool stuff happening!

Me and Kim, the Vegas Donor.

    What a pleasure it was to meet you Amy and we all look forward to seeing you again when your ready for a visit. I have no doubt this documentary will be a huge success and the wonderful friends you meet and get to know along the way will be priceless as meeting you has been to us.
    Safe travels to you and Jimmy and we’re right there with ya, but not in the luggage rack !
