PHOENIX -- A Valley dad is home after an adventurous trip back from New York City.

Noah Dyer was on an East Coast business trip, and became stranded by Superstorm Sandy.

He spent a couple days with friends in a powerless apartment. His flights were canceled Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

"At that point I wasn't confident I'd even get out by Friday, so I decided to drive," Dyer told 3TV, and he invited others to tag along.

"I put it on Facebook. I said, if anyone from Phoenix or anywhere west of New York is stranded, I'd be driving all the way," Dyer remarked.

Three young tourists from the Valley took him up on the offer, and together they took turns driving the 2,500 miles.

"Thirty-six hours and only one ticket," Dyer said, noting they were pulled over on the home stretch, just south of Flagstaff.
