On the road from California

RAIN! They need it, they're getting it. Visiting a friend in the mountains above Palmdale, mud and a mess.
The trip so far has been unremarkable, am sitting in the bus right now,it's 60 out and cloudy. Hopefully today will be less wet and we can go visit more friends.

Pics later, my int. connected is very poor and spotty.

500 miles down and about 800 to go, 11 mpg avg. pulling 3200 lbs.

Awesome to hear, Don.

I'd love to be out there, even with the weather.

Home after 1300 plus miles, 10.8 mpg. Bus ran great, all systems worked just fine.

High temp=mid 80's, low temp 32.

The 8k btu portable AC did the job in Death Valley, the Mr. Heater Little Buddy did it's thing when we had no hookups in the cold. At 32f the bus was 48-50f at wake up w/o any outside heat and no sun yet.
