That is just an un-spicy Kung Pao. Well, almost. Stir fried everything with chicken.

Hey, is there a forecast of high winds there tomorrow. Las Cruces is supposed to get some very high winds tomorrow.

That's what you call what gets put into the pot to cook after you drive around PIMA county campground learning to drive big motor homes. Usually menu header at Road Kill Cafe!
Oh lordy! Did I hit it? Fresh roadkill, then, eh?

I'm relieved to hear from you. No frostbite, I hope! Were y'all trying to glamp? Midwinter in Canukistan???
No, I won't accuse you of having lost yer minds ... yet. At least ya know where that warmth is ... supposedly.

Cheers!

Cheers![/QUOTE ]Combined 75th birthday for my B-I-L and a family reunion (Denise's side) which is an ongoing blast. The furnace in the Motorhome keeps us quite warm and the solar is keeping the batteries charged even in the cloudy overcast we have had lately. If we can manage a week in subzero temperatures without plugging in the motorhome then we should be able to never need plugins when we winter down south.

Hey Wayne! It's good that you left early this morning. I heard on the radio at about 3:00 that I-10 was closed at the AZ/NM border due to dust.

I finally left PCF about 1:30 after a shower and a trip back thru the RV park to dump. I forgot to do that before leaving our site. I was so focused on getting out by noon. Then it was errands -- Walmart for groceries and the BLM office for a map of local free camping. (they didn't have any maps as there is only 1 BLM site) I found Snyder Hill on my iPad and was headed there when I passed a Lowe's and decided to stop for tonight. Sena and I went inside to buy some ratchet straps. These visits are payment for the parking. It took us almost an hour. Even the store manager came out and chatted with us and took pictures. Sena is the first monkey to visit their store. They've had a goat and a miniature horse, now Sena.

I've met folks who live here that operate on 2 timetables. Some rise early (4, 5 am) and turn in early. Others are on the one I seem to settle into - sleep till around 10 and stay up late. I guess I like my cold in evening. As a kid I hated bundling up to go to school in the winter. No problem playing outside until nearly frozen after school.

In Minnesnowta, there was summer with 90/90 heat/humidity. Horrid!
Winter was the direct opposite. But equally horrid!
Arizona has a very tolerable winter. Don't mind wearing a jacket early and late in the day. The sunshine time tans me well, except for the sock line!
I've been to Arizona in mid summer. It was for a funeral.
Arizona will not see me in summer again except for such events!
Tim, I could predict that your tour of Southern AZ in July would be only a moment before a swift Northern exodus, but I won't.
RVMdom will eagerly wait for your reviews.

Using the term TOUR might be a misnomer. We basically will be doing a Carl type trip across I-10 and I-8 to get out to Southern California. I thought a stay of one or two nights to scout out where the mutants winter might be handy in understanding where some of your post are talking about. Who knows we might sneak out ther some winter! The real fun will start once we get out near Oceanside, Ca. I expect it to be hot, but it's a dry hot, at home it will be hot with unbearable humidity!

Hi Nola!

Hi Nola!
Tim - I'd say keep an eye on your tires and you'll be fine. What kid wouldn't love to be in Tombstone or wherever on summer vacation.
