Back to the Sonoran Desert

February 10, Saturday

This morning I get on the road at 10am PT, but since I’m heading east, after about 10 miles I enter mountain time zone, and promptly lose an hour. 😦  There are a couple things I need to pick up at Fry’s so I exit at Fortuna Road. The Shell station next door has a dump station and is my next stop.  The fee is a very reasonable $5.00.  When leaving camp I had gone west two miles on I-8 to the rest stop which has potable water and filled my fresh water tank. So I am set for my next camp. Continue reading “Back to the Sonoran Desert”

On Monday, October 30th I leave Santa Rosa Park in New Mexico and board I40 heading east towards Texas.  My plan is to take I40 as far as Amarillo where I will exit onto Hwy 287 towards Vernon, TX and then Hwy 82.  Of course, all my plans are written in jello and are subject to change at any moment 🙂 Continue reading “Across Middle America”
