On The Road

Last night we enjoyed hamburgers cooked on the Smokey Joe, potato salad, Linda’s baked beans and for dessert Linda made a to die for homemade shortcake to go with fresh strawberries.  It is a good thing we were leaving today, all that dieting I did with Ellie has probably gone by the wayside!  We said our goodbyes last night as we didn’t know what time we would be heading out this morning.

Emmi decided she was cold/needed to go outside/who knows what about 5am this morning, poor Michael was the designated Emmi sitter and they both headed outside but were quickly back in bed under the heating blanket!  We all slept in until almost 7am.  After a couple cups of coffee we decided to start the motor home and head down the road.  Linda came out to say a quick goodbye and we were pulling out of Tombstone about 8am.  We pulled into our favorite Tucson Costco a little before 10am and waited for it to open by walking Emmi for a while.  Stocked up on some much missed Costco items and were back on the road. 

Arrived in Gila Bend and filled the thirsty diesel tank to the tune of over $200 and then took advantage of the Shell station’s free RV dump and water fill station.

The traffic was light on this Sunday—we stopped in Salome and filled our drinking water containers before finally arriving in our special spot in the desert about 4:30pm.  Michael brought down our chairs from the roof storage container and we grabbed glasses of wine, leftover potato salad and boiled shrimp to enjoy.  Emmi was even glad to be back, she trotted up the hill to see if Jasmine and BoBo were still here—she seemed a little sad to find they were gone!

A very nice travel day—no stress!
