The rest area there has lots of parking for big rigs and RVS..very nice and would stay there again.
We set the alarm for 0400 this am. I was awake at 0340 and at 0400 I woke Ken with this little diddy, "Rise and shine and grab your socks! It ain't daylight but it's four o'clock!" I could see my daddy in heaven😇 smiling down at me. When we were kids every summer we'd head from California to Arkansas to visit cousins and he would use this to wake us in the mornings to get on the road. 💙
Thought we would have coffee, blogging and hit the road for a couple of hours. Since we were headed east thought we would get a couple of driving hours in before the sun blinded us. It worked well and we stopped at the next rest area and had breakfast and showers. We got back on the road as the sun was above us.
|Our breakfast spot..|
We hit the Arizona line and loved the change in scenery. Gas was so much cheaper at exit #9! Yay we're back in Arizona! We stopped in Parker at the gas station outside of town and I made lunch. We were going to stop at Plamosa Rd and spend the night but decided to go a little farther and stay near Dome Rock.
We found an awesome site there..and here we are! No one around, but from the fire pits there was at some time.
|A little windy..but she sure is beautiful!|
|The view from our campsite..:)|
I sat outside this afternoon in shorts! This evening Ken made an awesome fire pit and fire from the 2x4's we brought from home..small, but it worked.
Tacos and a movie for the evening..soon bedtime. We were going to get an early start to the south...but Ken suggested Silly Al's at 1100 and then we'll see how far we go after we come back and hook up the Mansion. We don't really have a schedule so it's nice. As long as we're in TN around the 8th of March.
Wednesday morning we didn't set the alarm..so I was awake at 0630 and got the coffee going. We did our morning things and I thought I'd have plenty of time to post the blog..NOT...we got to Silly Al's about 1115..Not a lot of people but more than you would think! Great lunch, wine and beer.
Got ourselves ready back at camp and headed out.. so later than we thought. A nice drive towards Yuma and now we are here at the BLM behind Pilot Knob RV Park. Hoping we can have Happy Hour tomorrow with some of our blogging friends before we move on Friday! Tomorrow is a shopping and laundry day :( ...gotta be done! The temps this afternoon were awesome we were able to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine for a bit!
Have a great evening!
