Down hill in q

Well about 30 buzzard's showed up this morning (CLICK ON PHOTO 1)to pick off the last of us at what is now the little Q.
BUT luck was with us Artstream showed up from down Yuma way to save us all.
Just cause trouble comes visiting doesn't mean you have to offer it a place to sit down.
Huh click dont work.BUT trust me there are 30 Buzzard's in the photo.

Hi Jimmy;

Great to see everyone again, even though it was short. The Lost Dutchman Park was full so we rolled on over to Tortilla Flats for the night. Mary loved that drive. Had her on the edge of her seat most of the time. Free camping on FSL at mile post 219.

Tonight we are up here with Mike & Sheri. Just finished supper and the girls are out walking the dogs. Plan to take a tour of the "rim" tomorrow and see where everyone will hang their hats this summer. Sure is beautiful country out here.

Stay safe and don't wear your spurs to bed.

Have a good one.

Hi Jim & Min,

I always enjoy following you folks. It's gotten to be an almost daily habit checking out your thread.

Looking forward to the posts from the rim this summer. Be sure to have a little extra fun for those of us who still have to work.

Rim

We hope this year that by changing cell phone comp. we will be able to have cell phone and internet service.AZ has lot of area that does not have cell phone coverage still.I guess with so few folks in some areas that it does not pay.

Just remember when you're over the hill you pick up speed.To the grave?

Hi Jimmy;

We spent yesterday up on Mogollon rim with Mike & Sheri. Beautiful area and we drove the dirt road through Young, quite the ride. Enjoy your summer, we will be following your campfire chats here on the forms. We are riding east, following the rising sun.
Safe travels

Jim,

After all your previous posts, it looks so out of place sitting next to a curb.

Move that damn thing outta the street and into a camp...it's NOT a street machine. Still have 4 hold-outs in Q, but most of us(ok, ok, ALL of us) will be gone within the week...no one headed west, but the other three directions are covered...shrimp Alfredo on angel hair pasta tomorrow night...will twirl the fork for you who are missing...
If it ain't rainin' and the saddle's wet, the ride was good, or you have a problem...

The rig looks good but out of place. Talked to Tony, he will be here Wed.. Weather looks like it is going to get hot. We plan on staying here till April 6t but if its too hot we will be someplace on the RIM. Cholla is almost empty and it's really quiet, thats good. Take care, tell Minn hi. Mike and Sheri

OK, Cowboy;

Time to saddle up and ride. There's a spot out on the "RIM" waiting for you. Enjoy the camp-fires, the happy-hours and the sunsets. We'll be thinking of you on our ride home.
