Well, we left Verde Valley and hung a left. Friends were crying when we left about 8 AM. I think it was the diesel fumes. It turned out to be a 330 mile day. Up Interstate 17 to route 89 in Flagstaff and followed it north. Carol took almost a hundred pictures. Now I go thru them and chose which ones to put here – that’s a job in itself. Here we go.
Tomorrow (Wed) we our heading up north again about 200 miles to a county park in the Spanish Fork area just below Salt Lake. If it’s full we will head north to ????
We will meet Sharon & Don and Marilyn & Larry Thursday morning probably at a Flying J just above Salt Lake. Then we all travel North To Alaska.
It’s great being back on the road not knowing what adventure awaits us around the corner. The Beast (our RV) did fine today. It’s about the first time it did over a hundred miles in a day. It’s just running along fine. Fuel mileage is yet to be determined. We will know more when we get to Salt Lake with about 700 miles on this tank. Hopefully it will only take about a 100 gallons or less.
Tonight is our first night of truly boone docking in the Beast in a setting like this - cold. It’s 4 AM and the batteries are at 12.3 volts. The inverter has been on always and no generator yet. It’s 35 degrees outside and 60 inside and dropping. I won’t turn on the hydro hot for heat until the morning when I get up. It’s just not needed when you are in bed. Carol gets up when it gets warm. Brownie points. Since we only got about 200 miles we will have a nice breakfast and enjoy the scenery before we leave. Back to bed for me now…
On the road again……………
