Well, we had final hoorah last night...meal, wine/beer, friendship(Bob&Lou, Terry&Greg, and ours truly), sat by the campfire for awhile, then early to bed or rest...decompress was the term I think I heard. Got up and began to pack up...Bob&Lou left a few minutes before us, and then Quail Loop was empty...kinda sad, but DH4 is coming quick.
We're currently parked in a dirt lot behind a Circle K in Marana, waiting for...yep...a mobile mechanic...right rear grinding noises when we pulled away from the gas pump...the good news is that gas was $2.49/gallon, and we took on 57 gallons...also, the mechanic coming is one we have used before, and he's good, reasonable, and can find the older chassis parts.

Mike,
Sorry to hear that you had to call a mobile mechanic. Rear grinding noises doesn't sound good (brakes, bearings, Geo Tracker?). No sagging airbags? Hopefully you're on the road again this afternoon.

Mike,
Bad news about the MH. Across the street from the circle K is a stop and go type place at the service station. They make the best breakfast burritos. Hopefully you will not be there in the morning, but just in case you are...

Thanks Folks,
We're still in the moho, BUT...we're sitting in it at his shop...they came out, jacked it up, put it down, listened to the grinding, and told me it was ok to drive it to the shop...I just eased the tension with a cold one, and am surfing and reading...don't know about tonight...don't care...just know we're here and in good hands. May try the breakfast tacos on the way out.

Got all three right rear tires off, and I looked, but all I saw was a lot of greasy metal and unstripped spindles. he's gone into the shop with a few brake parts...we're outta the sun, got a cool breeze, food in the box, and are just layin' back.

Hummm. Sounds maybe like some kind of brake-parts failure? That'd be good news (I think).

trapped in tucson, again...

Naw, at least not from the right rear...they pulled off those three wheels, pulled everything apart, checked for abnormalities, and found nothing...but it still makes a grinding noise with braking...so...tomorrow, another session with the left side...Ahh, well, maybe we should just drive to Slab City, park, and become residents...anyone got any spare plywood,blue tarps, or pallets??? Hot tub was nice.
