We checked out of Dead Horse SP at noon, dumped our tanks and had an uneventful trip to the Phoenix area on Thursday. Friday morning Jeff & Keith got busy on our new landing gear and had it done in about three hours. They also replaced & repaired our awning arms so maybe I can talk Larry into putting it out more often. It kept falling apart and he HATED dealing with it!

Son Don was delivering a load in Avondale, about 30 minutes outside of Phoenix, so we met him for dinner. We had a nice couple of hours visiting before it was time for him to get back on the road again. Since he's been driving 18 wheels we've actually seen more of him than we used to. And, we get to Brookings, Oregon alot more since our rv'ing life started in 2006. Always fun to visit his, and son Tom's families there.

Today we drove about 100 miles to Picacho Peak SP where we will be camped until Thursday. When we arrived they were just finishing up a two day 'Civil War Re-enactment' event. There was a battle going on but unfortunately it ended before we could get unhooked. So no pics, bummer!!! I did find a cool Youtube video of last year's re-enactment that looks & sounds much like what we heard & saw while arriving. It's about 3 mins. & you can check it out here:

And finally, check out the incredible illusionary makeup art of Japanese college student and artist, Choo-San sent to us by our buddy Warren. Choo-San created these realistic looking, but bizarre works of body art using acrylic paint. And yes, she has painted all of these surreal designs, they are not digitally manipulated. Sort of creepy looking, but cool, don't you think???
