We have finally moved on from Roswell, headed west. We made a couple of stops at a pistachio ranch in Alanogordo and at the White Sands National Monument. Of course, we made our usual fine dining lunch stop at a Super Wal-Mart.

We did get to see the largest pistachio in the world.

We also saw a nicely restored vintage Airstream before we left Roswell.

We stopped for the night at the KOA in Lordsburg, NM.

We don't don't know our exact route yet, but we will keep you posted.

Thank you, Brian

We left Lordsburg this morning and continued west.

We stopped at the Camping World in Tucson for a break and a few supplies.

We decided to make a little side trip to the Saguaro National Park.

It was quite impressive. These very large cacti are quite magestic, and each is a little different. The Saguaro happened to be in bloom at this time of year.

As we drove through Phoenix this afternoon, the thermometer in Daisy was reading 105 degrees, and at one point it hit 108.

We continued to Quartzsite, Arizona. We stopped at the Holiday Palms RV Park. We we were setting up Lucy, I noticed that one of her tires was bulging significantly in the center of the tread. I'm afraid that the tread may have separated. These Maxxis are two years old and have 27,000 miles on them. I guessthat I will have to deal with this issue in the morning.

Here are some photos of todays activities and the Park.

Great pictures Brian. This is one of the best times of the year to visit the desert before it gets too hot. The Phoenix temperatures are running a little high right now but the good news is the pool has warmed up to 80 degrees and ready to use.

I went through Quartzsite last week work) and the town has pretty much emptied out and will be that way until next winter. You may need to limp over to Blythe, CA to find the services you need.

Travel safe...

Wow, super photos, Brian! Gotta love that rugged beauty...

Sorry to hear about the tread separation, I guess it's not only Marathons that can suffer that.

Tell me about it!

We just got back to the campground with Lucy sporting four brand new tires. The tire store here in Quartzsite had a supply of Maxxis just like the ones that had been on Lucy. They had lasted 27,000+ miles which is pretty good. We decided to go with the Maxxis 10 plys again.

Califonia gas is very pricey and also in remote parts of the desert so fill up near the major areas and go a few blocks from the interstate always much cheaper.
In the middle of Williams is a KB , right in the middle of town and 20 cents less a gallon than on the interstate.

We use the internet at the campgrounds if available. If not, we connect through our Alltel cell phone with their Mobilink feature.

Thanx for the offer on the power and water.

Regards, Brian

After we got her new tires and got her hooked up again at the campground, We headed out to tour the area.

We drove up to Parker and looked around the town. They have a brand new Super Wal-Mart scheduled to open in July on the north end of town.

We crossed over into California and drove up to the Parker Dam on the California side. The dam is really neat. We continued up to Lake Havasu City and went across the London Bridge and toured the town.

We drove back to Quartzsite on the Arizona side. We didn't get back to Lucy until after 9:00 PM.

I don't know what you paid for gas, but it is running about $2.30-$2.40 a gallon for regular unleaded here. Also, I don't know if you noticed it, but "premium" gas is a couple octane lower here than in Florida. 93 octane is the norm there, versus 91 here, and there is still the same price spread between grades, 10 cents more for "plus" another 10 for "premium".
