Take your short shorts with you. It's going to be hot. No pool at Pima. Horse buckets though. Make you feel right at home.

It has been so sad to see Mutants leaving -- Dwayne, Shara, Jan and Ray yesterday and today -- Dave & Nola, Dave & Carol, Carl, Mac & Boko and Steve & Annie. <sniff>

I extended for an extra day in order to get my trike more secure on it's new perch. Tonight I joined Sue & Martin and Earlene & Wayne for dinner out at a Thai restaurant. Never having dined on Thai cuisine I was at the mercy of my world traveling companions for help. I had egg rolls and a delicious soup made with coconut milk. Luckily nothing I ordered required chop sticks or I would still be trying to get in the first few bites. But we forgot to get PoP so it didn't really happen.

Tim, this park is closed during the summer months. And finding a park with shade trees might be a challenge. Good luck! I heartily recommend southern AZ during the winter, but I baked when I came here in May, 2014 for dental work. July? Not me, no way! Are you sure you wouldn't rather go thru Flagstaff?

Tomorrow morning we leave, all going different ways. I plan to stick around Tucson for a while as it's too early to head north. My plan is to boondock on BLM land in the area. There is a lot to see and do here.

Tim... one thing you might keep in mind... find higher elevation... i hear it's cooler in the summer. Plus, you might find a few trees at higher elevations in the summer for shade.

Barb... it is hard to watch mutants mosey on down the rainbow, but it sure is great being together.

While the weather didn't fully cooperate, it had its moments from freezing water droplets on a bench (beautifully captured in PoP by Mr. Round, to sunburned faces the same afternoon. And as always, there were some beautiful moments, weather and otherwise.

Sure is nice to have a new home theatre and 2 new TVs. Thanks again Carl. And thanks also to Martin for sage mutant advice and helping me pick the soundboard and given me the nudge to get the smart TV for the bedroom as well. Now if I only had his hot spot.

I'm pretty sure these pine trees will be here in Benson...

That is one of the sad moments of RVMdom. We play hard and hate to see everyone vamoose. Denise and I are thankful to Dwaye and Shara for inviting us to stay with them in Bullhead City after PIMA. It made our departure north a little longer and the in between time very enjoyable.

How did I know you would enjoy Denise's favorite Thai soup. We are away from home right now but we will call you when we get back to our own telephone system.

Keep your fingers crossed. Denise and I are parked on a road in Campbell River and are basically trapped by the snow. It started coming down when we arrived and was still falling earlier today. We are both ready for some warmth.

Movie buff's... this is the falls in the "Twin Peaks" series. Then if you continue East over Snowqualmie Pass, North of Cle Elum, is Roslyn WA, where the series "Northern Exposures" was filmed.

Hi Eyephoto

Curious if you are (were?) a member of the Crosley Owners Club and if so did you ever meet Lee Arthur from Indiana?

Tim, I agree that I-40 is the cooler route to take. We traveled it to get to Oceanside, CA. in May of last year and it was 10 degrees cooler than I-10 or I-20. From Kingman, AZ to anywhere West is going to be hot but still the better option.

I would personally take I-40 over to I-15S after having traveled both I-10 and I-40. I-8 on Westward is very up and down. Short grades but steep in my opinion.

In any case, have a very safe and mechanically uneventful trip.

Sitting Here Sunday Night and Pondering...

about the Curiosity. Met some new people, made some new friends, had some really good meals at restaurants, ate some really good Mutant prepared food (and survived...). Speaking of surviving, survived the grueling Rite of Initiation from both sides this week. Met several new furry friends (animals of course, the humans were all clean shaven most of the time...). All in all, had a great time and glad Carol and I came. Now when's the next one so I can aim us in that direction?

Dave
