|As much as we are getting the “hitch-itch” in the late fall, as much it also hits us at the end of winter. “Back on the road” is what we are thinking during the last weeks in the desert. And as we do this year, we also have developed a change in our plans. We had planned to leave the trailer here in the south – but we realized we couldn’t get a covered storage and besides, we love the comfort of having everything with us – so we changed our plan and decided to take it north. We will park it in Maine, so will not cross borders with it, as that would trigger thousands in taxes.
So, we are planning a route out of Arizona, and that’s where we would like to get some help. We’ve been considering Highway 60 Globe – Show Low, then either going towards Petrified Forest (which we have seen many years earlier) or going on through New Mexico ending up at Socorro on I-25.
Another alternative is the route Phoenix via Payson and up to the I-40.
However, we have no idea how steep these routes are and thought some of you might already have that information and can get us a few tips.
So we are looking forward to hear from you.
The rain we had yesterday was never amounting to much. It was all over within a couple of hours, but the winds stayed on making the temps drop to 64F.
Skies were clearing towards the evening and today we have our good old deep blue California sky again. We have heard that more rain had come in Yuma and also west of us in the San Diego Mountains. I guess there’s a reason for it that there’s a desert out here.
See ya down the road!
