Off we go....

A short drive to Lake Pleasant AZ for a 3 night stay. One of our favorite places, looks like some weather coming in. That's good, we need it. 60mi or so each way, taking Mary to Red Lobster on the way home for V day.

I hope y'all have a great stay. You guys motivate me to work on bus quite a bit as you hit my old haunts.

Ever get way down to Patagonia Lake? It used to be nothing-much when we'd go many moons ago. Only few miles from fresh tortillas...and fruit chimichangas at Wisdom's Cafe. Drool.

NICE!
I love to see your pics and hear of your travels. You two are awesome, and the cat too!

Lobster commonly available in AZ?

Home safe. Pulled I17 for the first time since sensor replacement. Running 1qt. of 2 stroke oil in the 40g tank and the new sensor we pulled our 28 mph grades at 38 mph. Like it used to when I first drove her home. Weeeeeee!

Spooky was an angel, greeted/played with a few dogs much to surprize of the dog's owners.

Thanks CB.

Home! While there, a lady spoke to me that she had seen our bus, went online and found this: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...5&&FORM=VRDGAR

This vid was taken in Oct '15 while on our way to CA for a visit. This is in Kingman AZ, right off I40. Don't know the person that recorded us but I plan on dropping them a line.

CB may be back tomorrow, I'll check in when I can.

Enjoy!
