Another little place
We looked quickly at the map and saw there was a road that headed that way out of Aguila and we were only about 6 miles from there. Whew..problem solved. Turned the girl on the phone on just to be sure, and at the instructions (more or less) we turned right. We're driving on a road we haven't traveled before and enjoyed the views. End of the road, it says Salome 21 and something else the other way. So we turned left as we knew we didn't want to go to Salome, we had just come from there! What the heck?! Eventually we found I 10 12 miles west of Tonopah, well we were supposed to come out about 12 miles further east than that. Don't know what happened, as we followed the only road we saw. Oh well.
|All kinds of Saguaro|
|Love the views...|
|Saddle mountain, we saw it in person!|
Got on the freeway and going down the road the ABS light came on, so Ken pulled into a gas station, planning on getting some gas and checking the ABS. Well, the rear tire on the trailer is going flat! So we made it across the street to a bigger parking lot and he replaced the tire with the spare. (He actually has 2 spare tires so we're not in a huge hurry to get it fixed). Screw in the tire. I made salad for lunch while he changed it out.
|It amazes me that there is so much garbage at this truck stop!|
|There are garbage cans placed every 70 feet or so, yet let's|
throw our garbage out!
|We do a build our own salad bar..makes for a yummy lunch!|
The last few days we've been talking (well, actually Ken's been talking and I've been listening). This ABS problem has been going on for awhile. It only happens when pulling the trailer, sometimes it'll go into limp mode, which is really bad. The truck will slow down, then he's got to punch the gas pedal and all kinds of issues. When we bought the truck, the salesman says he pull a 28 foot trailer, no problem. Without getting into all the stuff I know nothing about, Ken's been debating buying a new truck (which we really don't want to do) or getting the sway bar, etc put on the truck and see if that fixes the problem. Tundra recommends having one.
Instead of Gila Bend we decided to head for Phoenix (oh no) and Camping World. The girl in the phone did a nice job on directions and we pulled into the busiest Camping World parking lot I've ever seen. Here I think their major business is selling RV's of all kinds. We were directed back to service. We spent some time talking with Sandy who said we picked the worst week possible to try and get something done as it's Nascar and Spring training for baseball. All booked up for at least the next week. Figures...so she called a few places but everyone busy. She gave us a list of RV stores in the area but honestly we didn't want to spend more than a night or two here anyway. She didn't really think we needed the bar but who knows. Too, too many people here. Sandy did say we could park on the street here for the night. It's legal and safe as there is a car lot across the street and there is overnight security.
|Stacey, look what your car can haul..looked like a little|
much too me..
|Our spot for the night|
|Camping World's American flag! Huge!|
|The sunset from our little corner of the world..|
|Well lit street..|
|Still gotta love the sunset!|
We pulled out and found a nice place on the street. Made the decision that we will head for Tucson today and Camping World there. We'll see what happens, but we should find an RV park and take care of business.
We actually had a very nice night here, it was very quiet except the car lot played music all night long. I told Ken maybe it's to keep the security guard awake..who knows.
A new adventure today! Enjoy your Sunday!
