Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

Made it to Arizona

01 Speed limit signs on I10W TX (1024x609)

Trust me, if I could drive that fast to get out of Texas I would. But instead I go 60-65mph.

02 Welcome to New Mexico sign I10W (1024x625)

Yippee!

03 I10W New Mexico (1024x702)

It’s prettier already.

04 AZ state line signs I10W (1024x569)

The 358-mile drive seemed very long, hot and windy, but I crossed the border.

05 KOA Benson AZ (1024x766)

And made it all the way to Benson. Home tomorrow and praying for a tail wind.

06 Sunset KOA Benson AZ (1024x634)

My brain is still on Texas time as I write this. Maybe I’ll be better in the morning.

Where are you headed?

The last time I was in AZ was in 1952 at Show Low in the White Mountains. Lovely place then. One grocery store and one motel plus several bars. Apache Indian reservation at edge of town. I suppose it is all different now.

I saw this familiar welcome sign in AZ when I spent 5 days in Sedona with our hiking group. I have not seen that speed (80) here in CA.

Get rested.

Ahhh....Benson. My parents lived there in the 1930's. Dad owned the only service station in town. It's still there only not named Standard now. Dad LOVED Benson. Mother hated it. That's about par for a marriage.

Home finally! I am a native Arizonan-love all of it(except the big cities) Welcome Back- joyous journey!

I have only been in Texas once...and it did seem to go on forever.

Great photos, I know you will be happy to arrive home. 80 is a little fast, I like to save some gas and go a little slower.

I drove through New Mexico (from Colorado to Arizona on I-25 and I-40), and Arizona (I-40, and up to the Hoover Dam) just last week! There's a whole lot of nothing there, but it's beautiful nothing. I've never driven through Texas. Best wishes for making it home tomorrow.

Ruth said...

Is the speed limit really 80mph? That is too fast for me.(and too gas guzzling!) The fastest speed limit in Ontario is 100km per hour which is 60 mph. Safe travels.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Home SWEET home! MB

Barb said...

Yippee - you're on the last leg now. I bet you're tired. Will you leave soon for the Canyon? I hope Mom likes her new digs.

Elaine said...

Hooray! There's no place like home!

blog with no name said...

I couldn't even imagine driving your truck at 80 mph... Your almost here! See you soon!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I hope that you are able to rest a little bit soon.

Janie said...

So nice to see the mountains on the horizon. Hope you're resting up after your long drive.

tattytiara said...

It is such a kick to see the welcome sign of someplace you've been anxious to get to, isn't it?

Wren said...

80 mph limit, so everyone's driving at least 90 I bet. Sounds like fun if you've got the car that can stand up to it.

Never saw separate speed limits for night before. Makes sense!

Have a wonderful time at the North Rim this summer! I have a field class this summer, and we will be touring the northwest and Rocky Mtns (I'll keep up with Geotripper, I hope!). We'll swing through Crater Lake, St Helens, Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Great Basin, and many points in between. Best wishes!
