It’s 8:20 am and we’re at our second gas stop. Left Mike’s at 4 am and saw a beautiful sunrise while coming through the southern end of Arizona. The mountains were very rocky and very beautiful.
Averaging 9.4 mpg at the moment which is about what I expected considering the Toyota is a monster truck pulling the Shadow Cruiser loaded down with a whole lot of stuff! We’re rotating driving every 2 hours which is nice – just as road fatigue sets in, it’s time for a break.
Got a reservation for a pull-through spot in Van Horn, Texas for tonight. Pull through spots are highly desirable so we don’t have to mess with backing up the trailer. We’ve got a pool, internet, and all the modern conveniences afforded campers – and then some. Just as an aside, my idea of ‘roughing it’ is sitting in my new Sharper Image shiatsu massage chair pad which only had 3 speeds….hmmmm….need to upgrade!More later as the day unfolds.
