    Back in Arizona

    October 29, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 3 °C

    This is an attempt to find something else good about Arizona besides the Grand Canyon.
    With my first ever trip here back in my twenties I had gun pulled on me in Phoenix so I’ve maintained a fairly low opinion of the place ever since then but you can’t let one bad experience taint your opinion so I’m back to give it another go.

    Unfortunately it hasn’t gone too well the second or third time either.
    Clearly avoiding Phoenix we made the effort to exit the interstate to try out a few other towns only to find staying in truck stops metres from the highway has more appeal.

    Probably the best one is just over the state border. As well as a truck stop, named Speedies Truck Stop is has the Indian Arts and Crafts Centre where they sell pretty much everything which is good for tourists as you want to take home something special to remember the place by.
    Now having a good look around I thought this is the place for me though I ran into a little trouble with what I wanted to buy.

    If you look at the photo of this tourist trap the signs on the store clearly read STORE WIDE CLEARANCE and EVERY MUST GO so I took them at their word and said I want to purchase the yellow horse on top of the building and being a hard bargainer I wanted a pair of sunglasses thrown in too, for the horse not me.

    Sadly the yellow horse purchase didn’t go well though I look on the whole experience as an educational one, instead of my horse I gained extensive knowledge of some very colourful Indian language.

    Entering New Mexico

    April 25, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Today was a big day. We saw Meteor Crater, Petrified Forest, the Painted Desert, and drove 400+ miles. Finally we entered New Mexico, passed through Albuquerque, and made it up to our campground in Cochiti State Park.

    Can you imagine how we felt when we pulled into the campground at 10:30 pm and there was someone parked and settled into our reserved spot? Lucky for us the camp host settled the problem right away and evicted the squatters. Hah! Can’t believe I just called someone with a Allegro motorhome a squatter!

    Fuels!

    April 13 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    We stop for the fuel for rental beast. 😤 We had another accident a little while ago, but everyone is ok. I was very excited to meet the police man. 🚔 A pickup hit our trailer! I'm taking a nap now, after all the excitement.Read more

    Speedy's

    April 4, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 34 °F

    I got an extra tasty breakfast! Kibble, and egg, and a green turnip stem. I tried to go potty outside, but a tiny hound barked at me. I don't think I like other dogs. They're scary with their big teeth. We're going back to Indiana. But it's ok, because I got to see some new things first.Read more

    We're on the border of Arizona already! We stopped earlier at Russell's, and I had a nice little run. I met more pupperazzi! We have 900 miles left to go.
