Knowing we could be in for a long day, I started the blog this morning. Good thing I did because it’s late now & we just arrived home from Surprise Arizona a short while ago. I’m just too tired to blog about the second half of our day which resulted in the sale of our Motorhome, so for tonight I give you what I had written this morning, before our day…………..really took off:))
A breezy east wind made for some snuffly noses on our desert walk this morning. We wanted to get out anyway, because it looks like we will all be housebound in the morning due to a bad weather front moving into the area later today.
<<< THESE 2 GOLD DIGGERS WERE AT IT AGAIN THIS MORNING
I’m wondering if I forgot to welcome our latest Blog Follower a few days ago. My mind is like a sieve sometimes when it comes remembering short term things. I see Joe, Gay, Sally, Jack, Wrecks & Dover are all from GOOD-TIMES-ROLLIN. Sorry if I missed you, but we do have you on board now. Thanks for stopping by……..:))
DOGGIE RUNNING FAST AGAIN
It’s been 11 nights now that Pheebs & I have been camping out in the new rig & I have come up with a few more observations. Would you believe we have a real galvanized kitchen sink along with a real porcelain toilet. And, would you believe one can easily watch TV from the very throne itself. Also noticed we have the ‘outside shower’ option on this rig. Three roof vents with two of them powered. And, our side door actually has a torsion bar on the bottom. Like the linoleum flooring in the coach part & regular van flooring in the cab area. Ceiling speakers in the bedroom area as well. And how about coffee cup holders not only in the main bed area but in the spacious overhead cab space as well. And there’s overhead speakers up there too plus storage for books midnight snacks, & an I-Pad…….if we had one. Groovy:))
KIND OF NICE THE WAY THEY LAID OUT THE TOP BUNK…TONIGHT WILL BE MY FIRST NIGHT SLEEPING UP THERE
GYPSY had a question about Monday’s post in which she asks. ‘How do you find all those roads - do you have maps of the local area, and do you always know where the road leads’?………..Some roads we find out about from talking with local people in the area. Several people had told us about that Stage Coach road. And, we do have the ‘Benchmark’ road Atlas’s for Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, California, & Arizona. These Atlas’s include Landscape maps, Recreation Guides, Detailed Roads & GPS Grids. Boondocking sleuth, IVAN, uses these types of maps as well. Our Arizona one is all but worn out. I also use MapQuest & Google Earth for checking out area roads. And, do we always know where roads lead?? No, & that is part of the adventure I most always enjoy. Not knowing where a road leads puts the buzz back into the buzzment.
KELLY BEGINS OUTFITTING THE NEW RIG
GROANER’S CORNER:(( There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed a desire to become a "great" writer.
When asked to define "great", he said: "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, wail, howl in pain, desperation and anger!"
He now works for Microsoft writing error messages...
