Pat Said I Should Write

Yes , it has been some time since I put something on my blog, but if you follow Pat's blog,HERE , you know exactly what we are up to, where we have been, how we are doing, and why. So no point in writing it about it twice, well except for today, just so I write something, it may be close to what Pat writes.

Breathless scenery!




Today is a travel day, leaving Fire Road 688 near the south rim of the Grand Canyon we headed south on AZ. Hwy 64 to I-40 at Williams AZ.  I- 40 East was so ruff from Williams past Flagstaff to mile marker 210, I thought my back teeth were going to fall out.
It was a good day to drive, cruising along at 60 MPH, relaxed with light steady traffic until just before we stopped when we hit 5 miles of construction for about 15 minutes. Finally stopping at Sky City Travel Center and Casino for the night, tucked into a corner where we are away from the trucks and able to open our slides. There is a little wind that will rock us to sleep.


Stopped for fuel at a Flying J, had to set up the pump where you see me standing, then set the nozzle on the ground, turn on the pump and go around to the drivers side and turn on the pump there and pump the fuel. First time for everything.

We are on a slow homeward trek with arrival in Ontario slated for April 1 st., so with time between here and then, we will find a campground to stay in for a few days.
That's about it from me, enjoy the pics, comment if you like and until the next time stay safe.

    1. Thanks George, enjoying these easy miles down the road, no rush. First time to see pumps like that and the price was great also. The canyon sure is an awesome sight, will definitely go and see more of it in the future.

  4. Nice to hear from you and get your point of view of your travels. Tom says he remembers the sections of I-40 that were not that great, as he puts it. I just remember the scenery, of course, as the passenger I do get to enjoy the scenery a lot more...:) Continued Safe Travels.

  5. Thanks guys, it sure was a rough section. When we came down last fall, we didn't travel this way, instead went south in New Mexico. The scenery is great and Pat like you took it all in as well as writing some of her post for tonight. Safe travels as well.
