And Away We Go....

The weather man predicted high winds today so we thought we should get an early start before the afternoon winds started.  It's 7:30 am and the trailer was loaded and ready to leave town all it needed was a truck to pull it.  

Beginning mileage was 117,399 miles and we pulled out of Casa Grande at 7:30 am.  We usually would wait until Phoenix rush hour traffic was over but because high winds were predicted we thought it best to get moving sooner.

 As we passed Chase Field we noticed the Diamondbacks left town and forgot to close their windows. 

   We made a quick stop at the rest area outside Wickenburg.  Just one trip around the round-a-bout this time.   

The weather cooperated and it was smooth sailing to Kingman.  The winds didn't start until the last few miles.
Our timing was perfect.  We had been listening to the audio book Moscow Rules and finished it 2 miles from our exit.  We are in Blakes RV Ranch and Horse Motel.  We usually  stop here when we are in the area.  We arrived at 12:30 and considering the Phoenix traffic it wasn't bad.  It's 220 miles from home.

I successfully changed the satellite receivers.  We have one that stays in the rig but isn't a DVR one.  Decided to take the DVR for the summer.
