I'm pretty sure we are going to spend this winter in AZ. We will miss our FL monkey friends, but driving from Seattle to Tampa is getting hard to do.

We will boondock on BLM land, but I'm not sure just where yet. I like the Tuscon area and have a friend whose DH is stationed on the AF base there. And I want to go across the border at Yuma to stock up on some OTC drugs at the Purple pharmacy.

It sounds like we will have many opportunities for Curiosities of all sizes.

Marty, how do you snake proof a dog? Snakes and Lily have me concerned. Sena is instinctively afraid of snakes and anything snake shaped. She hates the vacuum cleaner hose.

I'm also trying to get enough 12 volt LED lights to wrap around the RV to keep pack rats away. I've read some horror stories about them chewing on wires and making nests in the engine.

We changed trains in Birmingham and are now heading for Edinburgh in one of Virgin Trains' Pendolinas. First time for us - on these trains the cars are suspended from a high point and swing out on the tight curves on the West Coast main line thereby allowing higher speeds and greater passenger comfort.

We have just devoured our latest pork pie - more to follow.

Having just said that, the steward has just offered us complimentary bacon rolls and and fruit salad. Since this is a four hour journey, he said he would return later. Drinks then followed with Sue accepting about a cup of rose wine.

I don't know how to snakeproof but my online friend who trains service dogs and was a desert ranger does. Stephen Salkin from Prescott, I believe. Goes by 'DeRanger' Steve online a lot. Has a Border Collie named Jinn.

Try Harbor Freight, I think I saw some that were solar!

Be aware around such events! Could be a Mutant Curosity in the area.

Carl I can tell I'm getting closer to Steve, it's been raining for two days! Areas that need rainfall might set us up a place for a Curosity just to bring in the wet weather!

Sue and Martin, your having way too much fun without an RV! We didn't make the plane trip you suggested over then canyon, to much to do, to little time ( plus rain showers in and out ). We visited with a family from England the other day on the canyon rim. Funny hearing the wife speak about the driving on the right side of the road. Prepare yourselves for questions next time we meet, Mary thinks we need to fly over and have a look!



Ed get on out here, and they have stores, you don't have to hunt for your meals!

I keep wondering about that. Well, Barb and I (and anyone else not going) are going to watch from afar and see what comes about this go-round
