Hi Gail,

The Eklunds will be here in about an hour....then, on to Quemado.

Hoping to find a good dinner at the Cafe there.


Maggie

Met up with the Eklunds this morning, then had a beautiful drive to Quemado.

We passed an observatory and a herd of antelope, also went over the Continental Divide at almost 7800 feet.

Interstate just chugged right along.

Lily met the Eklunds blue heelers, but did not eat them and no blood was shed , tho there was a little snarling and snapping while she made it clear who was in charge.....then, they settled right down.

I have Skyped with both my kids and theirs today, which feels important to do when one will be out of touch for awhile.

It is in the 60's right now, will be in the 50's overnight, so perfect sleeping weather.

Tomorrow, the last water fill at the Ranger Station here, then off we go.


Maggie

Maggie, don't always comment, but always like to catch-up on your doings.

Sounds like those curves in the road are straightening out for you!

Maggie, maybe you should suggest a contest to see who is the oldest woman to dump her own tanks.... LOL And yes, rubber gloves and eye protection are good things to have, actually I use both when I fill up with diesel as well.

When I am at home I usually have a small stool to sit on when doing all the heavy work on lower parts of my AS. Like checking air in the tires, torquing the wheels, dumping the tanks, etc. What I have found is that while sitting I have more strength to get the darn connection firmly attached.

And, just so you do not feel alone, on our trailers we can store the waste dump hose under the trailer in a tube. Well, I did not get the cover attached on the storage tube and of course, not only the cover came off, but the doggone waste dump hose flew out as well. And, I even saw it go in my rear view mirror, thinking it was something in the road.

So, maybe we need a wrench of some sort to get these connections tight. I might have to work on this.

Always glad to hear ( read) your posts. And if you are going to be at Alumalina, will definitely have the espresso ready, or we can catch up on the road again for another fun lunch.

I will get my travel schedule to you as I am in Illinois in August.

Be well

Thank you, FaN and Tommie.

I will not be at Alumalina in October, do plan to be there in March.

Please let me know when you will be in Illinois, Tommie.

I am thinking I might go to the UP at some point before mid-September, but have nothing firmed up....just loose, general directional planning.


Maggie

For those interested in the Gila Wilderness trip, I am going to post most pics from there on that thread.....makes more sense than here, really, or to duplicate.

Illinios

Hi Maggie,

I will hold the espresso for next March.....

Illinois, August 31, September 1, I will be doing photography along Route 66, specifically, the Sprague Super Service Station in Normal and the McLean County Museum of History & Route 66 Visitor Center in downtown Bloomington. The exact timing is to be worked out, but I will be coming down from Wisconsin.

And, some other venues of Route 66 as well, but have to be back in North Carolina on Thursday, the 3rd.

September 1820, 2015: Road America Camp Out, Road America, Elkhart Lake, WI. Hosted by Don & Kay Stenz, 920‑693-2146, slem@tds.net

I will be there, albeit as a road racing fan, but parked next to the fine folks from Wisconsin......and expect to gain only 2 or 3 pounds in cheese consumption....

Now, as to photos....if you have not seen the WBCCI International Photos

https://www.flickr.com/photos/fantin...57654660902369

Also, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic RR

https://www.flickr.com/photos/fantin...57655090501768

and this years Route 66 beginning photos

https://www.flickr.com/photos/fantin...57655056008822

Enjoy,

I'm guessing you have disappeared into the rabbit hole and we won't hear from you until the adventure is over.
Waiting with bated breath.

Back from the wilds.....an amazing, wondrous, incredible experience.

Most were leaving this morning, so I had a couple of days not budgeted and decided to follow the Eklunds to Nevada.....the last of the lower 48 states for the Interstate to bed down in for at least one overnight, and the only one to visit without my husband.

We drove to Boulder City, NV today, are in a full hookup campground, and I will be here til Sunday.

Will write more tomorrow.....we are tired, but happy.


Maggie

Even though it's only been a couple of days we missed you guys. Nice to know you had an adventure. Pleasant evening looking forward to the rest of the story.
