Hi, good bye Arizona.

Hi, we left Utah and on I-15 it was only about 29 miles to cross Arizona before entering Nevada. We thought about Las Vegas, but didn't like the traffic. We stopped at Primm for gas and a prime rib dinner. Our dinners were only $6.99 each and were much larger and better than we expected. Next we decided that our last stop would be in Victorville so we could do our final tank flushes before going home. Lee heard a few strange noises in our trailer; I searched around and we determined that we picked up our first hitch hiker. First thing in the morning as we hit the road, we stopped at Home Depot to buy a package of sticky traps [four] and a couple of Mickey Mouse hotels. The ones where you check in , but never check out. So far no luck, but I hope to have some evidence by sometime tomorrow. [pictures] Near Corona, Ca. the temperature hit 98 degrees making a 98 degree spread from South Dakota's Zero to California's 98 degrees today.

(1.) Gas and dinner in Primm.

(2.) Last camp site in Victorville.

Back home report.

Hi, well we made it home without any malfunctions or damage. Both vehicles are in need of a major bath. all eight Goodyear tires still have tread all the way around them and they all still hold air. Our street was clear of vehicles on both sides of the street and I was able to hit my driveway in one shot, then make one adjustment to have my trailer in an accessable area for cleaning and a few minor mods.


Stay tuned for a Mickey Mouse up-date.

We enjoyed taking you all along with us on our random trip.

Bob & Lee, thanks for sharing your beautiful trip! When you told us at Jackson Rancheria RV Park that you were headed to South Dakota, I wondered if you would make it! Airstreamers are a determined, courageous bunch... I hope you got rid of those hitch-hikers!

Cheers

Bob, thanks for taking us along and I'm glad to see you made it through all that weather without any mishaps other than frozen hoses. We're leaving Tuesday and it appears there may be some snow as we cross the mountains, but warm enough to be melted off the roads by the time we go over Vail Pass. I'll have my mighty snowbrush handy!

Gene

Two minor glitches.

Hi, I didn't mention two things on this trip, other than my water hose freezing. My closet door has three hinges and the top one came loose. I was able to re-adjust it and re-tighten it. And my windshield washer fluid froze too, but engine heat took care of that. Mickey Mouse is still missing in action so I added some bait to my sticky traps; If he gets hungry, and if he is still here, I might still get him. If I don't find him in a few days I'm going to gas him out with a flea bomb. I want to make sure he is either caught, or gone, before I start sealing around the wheel wells and the steps.

Bob,

Did you say your closet door had a hinge come loose? I think you need your axles replaced. You better get right on it....

Hi, my running gear is balanced, tires balanced on the wheels, and Centramatics taking care of everything else. As for axles, until they start to retract like an airplane, I'm keeping my originals. Maybe my Lincoln is over-hitched/sprung?

Miles and Time.

Hi, I just added up how many miles we put on in 15 days. This includes from Lakewood to Jackson Rancheria and to our random trip. South Dakota or bust, and back. We went 3,818.1 miles at an average of 11.1 MPG. I'm too young to have a heart attack so I won't be adding up the dollars.

When I was doing the final cleaning of our Trade Wind before going to Jackson Rancheria I notice evidence that we had a little free-loader too. I continued with the cleaning and planned getting a trap to take on the trip. The last thing I did was to mop the floor with Mop N Glo. I was tired so I left the bucket with the water that I squeezed the mop into in the trailer. The next morning I found the free-loader drowned in the bucket of rinse water. The bucket was against the Honda2000 which was against the dinette seat which was where the 'evidence' that I discovered the day before. I'm guessing perhaps the Mop N Glo may have been an attractant. Waddya all think?
Neil.

Mop-N-Glow.

Hi, Neil. You might have something there. I thought about a bucket of water with some food floating in the middle to catch the free loader. After I know the coast is clear, I want to make sure they don't have a way to get back in.

Maybe he had a concussion from bouncing along the highway and then died of old age.

Look for the mummy next year.
