Oct 24, 2012 - Visiting Patagonia (Arizona)

This was an exceptionally short day. We passed the continental divide in New Mexico and wondered how the heck anyone could tell what direction water would flow when the land was totally flat! (see photo). Then on into Arizona where we were greeted by an amazing series of rock formations (I am partial to rock as you can probably guess by now). (photo above). But definitely, the main event of the trip today was Patagonia, found on the 2 lane highway 82 just 18 miles before Nogales Arizona. Words cannot do it justice so I will just post the...

Dec 24, 2011 - Snow and Ice in.....Texas??!!

It was 32 degrees yesterday in Tuscon, Arizona!!! How crazy is that! And right now we are in Texas, driving in a horrible snow storm with roads that are ice packed, trying to stay away from the cars that are spinning out and around all over the roads. But, let my digress to earlier, warmer times. After our delivery of fresh meat to a grocery warehouse outside of Phoenix, AZ, we got our next load assignment........cucumbers out of Nogales going to Worcester, Massachusetts to be turned into pickles. It doesn't pick up till tomorrow afternoon...

Oct 24, 2010 - Kartchner Caverns

Today we experienced a stunning limestone cave located in Southeastern Arizona. This “live” cave was discovered in November 1974 by two young cavers, Gary Tenen and Randy Tufts but the cave was named after the landowners. This cave has a wide variety of unique minerals and formations, including stalactites dripping down like icicles and giant stalagmites reaching up from the ground. The tour takes about 1½ hours. After touring the caverns we drove to the City of Nogales. This city borders Sonora, Mexico and is Arizona's largest...

Jan 2, 2009 - Needles, CA to Nogales AZ - 636 KM

What’s to do in Needles except pass through and be on your way ... so, we’re up and on the road by 7:45. Cereal and coffee to bolster us and “Gerri” the GPS to guide our way. Thank goodness for Gerri!! Although Gerri took us around and about along some interesting routes, we made it in very good time. Our most interesting highway was 95 going south from Needles. It reminded us both of the ribbon candy that we used to have at Christmas. This road had more dips and high spots than any other either of us has travelled. The funny part is that...

Feb 17, 2008 - Tucson to Nogales

Another day of running and running. This morning Doug was given another load of laundry to do, this time the towels and sweatshirts that he forgot last night. While those were processing, he drained the tanks and generally made ready to go. JoAnn worked at her ‘pink duties’ inside the rig. Jim and Ellie were held up as well because of a flat tire. They had had their tires rotated for the trip and a valve stem was put in incorrectly and the air seeped out. Jim’s Pressure Pro detected it this morning when he ran the safety check. They had to...
