Itching,,,,,scratching tomorrow.

Sundance RV Resort
Casa Grande, AZ

I can't believe it's been almost a week since I last blogged.  The next week or so while we are at Quartzite, we'll be too busy to blog.  

Yes, my eyesight has improved since the surgery.  I told Bill I thought I could start helping with the driving again.  Of course, I'll wait until tomorrow morning to see if its raining before I decide to do that.  

I was glad we didn't decide to go earlier this week, when     I 10 was closed down for 13 hours.  One thing about Arizona roads, if the interstate closes down, there aren't alternate routes to take.  It's one of the main reasons we avoid taking I 17 because it gets closed down so much.  The detour took all the traffic south to I 8.  

We got caught in a traffic jam on I 10 two years ago when we went to Quartzite.  It ended up only being two hours because they didn't shut the entire road down.    

We're looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new people.  

Casa Grande had a home show at the old mall today.  It really wasn't much of a home show, more of a car display.  The weather called for rain today, but it was very nice out.

Bill enjoyed seeing all the cars.
You can't see it well, but there's an air conditioner mounted on the rear passenger window.
There were vehicles from all different time periods.
There was music playing and of course a few food vendors.
See that thing on the roof of this bug?

We couldn't figure out what it was for.  Any ideas?

Bill owned an MG like this one.  He said it was always something going wrong with it.  After he sold it, the man who bought it said it was the most trouble free car he'd ever owned.  I guess Bill got all the bugs out of it.

This car had Nebraska plates and I think I remember seeing it at the Cruise In in Kearney.

Pinal County Swat vehicle which was bought with drug money. 

Turtle Safely.........


  1. That Scoop on the VW is supposed to be connected to large plastic tubes above the headliner and runs down through the cowling to the top of the Carburetor. A way of increasing air intake which added Horsepower and generally you didn't get as much dust in the filter with it mounted that high up.
    We'll be looking for you in the "Q".
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Glad to read that your eye sight is doing so much better. Wonderful news.

  3. Enjoy Quartzite and the Montanna rally. We are here for a while. We got screwed top with the I-10 issue in Thursday andmade for a very long drive from Phoenix to Quartzsite.

  4. You can't believe it's been a week? However, it's been two weeks for me. Heading to Q on Wednesday. Maybe I'll find something to blog there about.

  5. Jan, I'm glad to hear your eyesight is improving. Sure wish we could have made it to Quartzite but it's on our calendar for next year. Have a great time and we'll see you in Tucson.
