6.28.13… Friday, day one of trip. Got out the purse I fashioned in 2011 when I carried my camera with me everywhere. And no purse is complete without a flashlight, Swiss Army knife and tape measure right? I don’t use the tape often but it impresses the pants off people when I do. And last but not least… I’m NOT bringing my cane! Woohoo!
We may not have packed a kitchen sink but we did pack two toilets. Finally this year we can retire the outhouse… … … Just kidding! Had you going there for a minute huh? I guess the ranch house ones need replacing and they are cheaper down here.
Remember the last pic? Heat wave right? Guess what? The motorhome Tim and I are driving up to the ranch doesn’t have working AC! The only comfy person is Tim’s son driving the truck and trailer behind us with the AC full blast. Ah…. Adventures.
6.29.13… Saturday, day two of drive. So this is the 23 foot motorhome Tim bought to stay at the ranch for overflow guests in the summer. All she needed were two new front tires and a battery to make it to McCall. Ok… Yes her AC doesn’t work and it’s a 17 hour drive … But what can you expect for $1,000?
I was extra extra super careful navigating this huge step in the RV. I wouldn’t want to give my hip surgeon a heart attack! I pretty much just scooted on my behind going up and down this step to my seat.
Geez it’s hazardous to drive… Game and stock crossings… Bumps that go on for half a mile … Fire truck exits … The only one I missed taking a pic of was the prong horned antelope crossing sign … And I actually saw two of them, the animals that is, only one sign.
P.S. We drove within 90 miles of Death Valley the day it was 130 degrees there… Thus the title of this post.
