Carefull Kevbo,

Remember he did that dance after a glass of wine at 29Palms and we got snowed on.

Williams

We arrived in Williams about 1430, as expected. The gas price at Needles was 3.50. Twenty-one miles into Arizona, at Exit 9, it was 2.45. At Exit 59 it was 2.59. After that, it starts climbing again. Plan ahead if you can, and save a few bucks. John (Condoluminum), it will be here before you know it. As consolation, I'll have a couple for you and Diane tonight. John (TIME), I think I'll read these posts to Deb and leave out that advice about the classic car. You know that you can never have too many. Weather is beautiful here.

Thanks for the heads up on the fuel prices, one question, do you remember if they had diesel at exit 9 in AZ, and do you remeber the brand by chance?? I know, too many questions, but since you just got there, you should still be somewhat coherent, I said somewhat!

Time,

At the Lake Havasu offramp is a Flying J with diesel. For easy pump acces on your truck take the last driveway in and then a quick left will out you at the pump.

Spent today driving the backroads(1 lane, 4WD) soaking in the outrageous aspen colors...took a few(hundred) pictures, but won't download them till ABQ
just trying to find constructive ways to eat up the time till we leave---Wednesday, after kegette delivery.
so, now there's ceremonial dancing to add to the already ballooning social calendar...I'll have to pull out the old blue-pencil if it gets any busier...

...HMMM...can't seem to download(upload) pics right now, but aching blue skies, fluorescent red/pink/yellow aspen leaves, no drugs involved...honest.

John:
It was a Pilot station and yes, they do have diesel. So did the Exit 59 station. Something interesting occurred, last evening, in Needles, a mid-sixties AS pulled into the campground. Three young men from abroad are making their way across the country in it. I wanted to get a picture of them with the trailer but didn't see them around this morning. I took a couple of pictures of the truck and trailer (see below). About an hour ago, in Williams, we started to take the dogs out for a walk, and there was the same trailer. They promised that they are not following us. I'll try for another group shot of them tomorrow. Ron

We pulled into Santa Fe about noon today after spending a few days in Taos in route. Will do the sights here before leaving on Friday morning. Met up with some Airstream folks from CO that are meeting their group (wally Byam) here for a few days before going to the state fairgounds where their group will be based in Albuquerque.
Looking forward to meeting up with you all at CW Friday morning.

We've had a breakdown. But I think it is going to be just fine. We stopped at Hubbell Trading Post in Ganado, AZ and then the dura wouldn't start. Period.

Called Good Sam, they dispatched a wrecker from Gallup NM (60 mi) and they came and hitched us up, truck, rig and everything.

Wrecker agreed to take the camper to KOA in Gallup, then took me and the truck to the chevy dealer. Dropped the truck, then brought me back to KOA. I'm watching football as I type this.

Don't know how the story will end, but will say that the Good Sam RV service is worth every penny I pay for it each year.

Got me here in time for cocktail hour, by the way.

Pat

Kevbo,
I didn't spot any Euros. In fact, I didn't see them at Exit 59, but you couldn't tell that by your quote of my quote. ? Getting confused. Time for some more wine.
