Packed and ready to leave tomorrow morning

My wife and I accompanied by our 3 year old black female greyhound leave home tomorrow morning for a month or more of relaxed travel down the west coast, east into Arizona and around the south end of the state up through Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon and back home. No real schedule just trying to find good weather and good times.
We've been trailering since the early seventies, worn out a couple of box trailers and traveled several hundred thousand miles over the years wintering in Arizona five years previously. First trip with our Airstream to Arizona and look forward to it.
We bought it new in 2010 and now have over 25,000 mi and 300 nites in her. I replaced the wheels with 16" and Michelins and am very happy. I installed a microwave and did some cabinet enhancements.
I'll try to post occasionally and include pictures.

Enjoy, lord knows the rain lately is enough to make anyone head out for a month.

Have fun on your trip. You'll find out which is faster, your greyhound or a jack rabbit. I'll bet on black No schedule is the best schedule.

I just came back from a month in Tucson stopping first at the Grand Canyon. My first winter without fog and cold in many years. Enjoy your ride.

I'm also right behind you, going to Quartzsite, Az for a month or so. Haven't decided yet whether to go via I-5 through CA or I-84/US-95 through NV. It depends on the weather.

We are sitting in the Tucson sun as I write this. Do not miss the five inches of rain that fell in the PNW last weekend. I love Oregon, but don't miss the gloom and wet.
Come down as soon as you can!

I'm jealous-
Here I sit at WORK-
We may take the trailer for a weekend getaway Friday- if my wife doesn't have to work Saturday-
We are going to see the Lion King at the Orpheum in Memphis. If my wife has to work Saturday, we will go in the car. If my wife does not have to work Saturday we will take the trailer to E Z Daze RV park in Southaven for the weekend. We won't know till 3 o'clock Friday afternoon-
I will have the truck gassed up and coupled up ready to roll just in case. It kinda sorta stays ready to go because he truck is a dedicated tow vehicle.

Night 2

Long day for us today. 320 mi more or less arriving at the Premier resort in Redding CA around 3:30 pm. I find my domestic tranquility much happier if I don't drive more than around250 mi a day. And what the heck, we're not on a schedule and nobody is waiting for us so why not take it easy?
Had a beautiful day crossing the Siskyous Mtns. Main pass is 4300 ft and you go up and down four times in oregon to around 2000 feet approaching the main pass.
Traffic was light to moderate and Mt. Shasta was gorgeous.
Shirt day tomorrow to Vinyard RV park just north of Vaccaville, ca. We'll stay 3 or 4 nights there and soak up the warmth and sun.
I tell my Seattle area friends that when I arrive in Vaccaville I can wake up in the morning, see a palm tree outside the window and put on shorts. That is my definition of a perfect winter.
More tomorrow and a few Picts.
NW Greyhound
Ps, Lara, when we return I would like to have a Snoqualmie Valley AS gathering at the fall city campground. I'll bring a meat smoker and we'll shoot the breeze and walk to the Longbranch for a tall one.
