It was a beautiful day ... sunny with a little breeze, unlike the Vail Gale blowing pollen everywhere. Elva and Jerry are parked in Tucson for a family visit, so they stopped by to see my new rig. This is a picture from last month when I visited them.
The talk centered around my truck and whether or not it would make it over the hills. Jerry is a long time excellent truck driver, not to mention RV's and pickups, and I learned a lot. To make it even better, he promised if I got in trouble somewhere, just to call him and he would show up to help. You can't ask for more than that!!!
Back to our visit, needless to say when Yuma snuck back to the back room, Cooper and Jessie came unglued. After my visitors departed, Cooper spent 30 minutes following every step Yuma took in the back yard and around the house.
So this morning I'll be loading up the last of the kids. It's a good thing I ate most of what was in the freezer because the dog's food takes up the entire space. No worries, I left four hotdogs in the fridge for lunch and dinner, two days. That should get me home.
I did have an offer from friend Cyndae to fly in to Tucson and ride home with me. Trouble is she would have to lay in the back with the puppies, There's WAY too much stuff taking up all the room on the passenger side. Add to that sleeping on the dinette table area, about 5' square. PLUS, I would have to pick her up at the airport at 10:30 at night. That's WAY past my bed time with the chickens. Next time I'll call her sooner.
The worst part of this trip will be BACKING into a spot at the RV Park in Quartzsite. They didn't have my pull-through spot available. UGH!!! NOT looking forward to THAT!! Wish me luck!!! I'm OFF!!
