Today was my last day of hard driving traveling from Midland, TX to Tucson, AZ covering 600 miles. It felt good to have a day less than 800 miles.
I was up at 3:00 am and on the road and with gaining a second hour crossing the mountain time zone I was able to get int Tucson mid-day.
I did it in 4 days as I wanted and got here without any winter weather. My plan worked so I could drive on I20 saving me from having to drive down to I10 and the across adding an extra day.
I snapped this photo of this roadrunner art on the side of the highway in New Mexico.
The disturbance north of me kicked up a few showers giving me a mini rainbow.
Above I caught this homemade camper designed in a Gypsy style just before arriving in Tucson.
I enjoy the craftsmanship that people put into these and I would love to see the inside.
There were all kinds of RV's on the highway heading west. Many I suspect are headed to Quartzsite for the 100,000+ people gathering. The RTR is just a couple hundred there with all kinds of other groups there too to make up the total.
This afternoon I planned on going to one of the Toyota dealers to have my oil changed and tires rotated. I just drove to the dealer and I was still in the system from last year and I even recognized to woman who waited on me last year.
I was out in an hour headed for a city park to organize the Prius as I just tossed in the remaining items on the floor before leaving
As you can see I'm at Auto Zone replacing the front drivers side parking light that I noticed was out on the way out.
I'll spend a couple of days here and stock up as well as get some exercise in.
