Dad has sent me several old pictures so above is another oldy but goody.

We have been in Willcox now for over a week. The weather has been real nice, we did get some rain that is much needed in this country. The town hasn't changed much in the last couple of years. A couple of business's out of business and a couple new ones. One of the grocery stores was sold and under new management. Have to say they did clean up the store.

I went to Sierra Vista the other day to purchase a new blower motor for the furnace. Got it installed and appreciated the heat that night, it cooled off to the mid 40's.
Where else can you run the firnace at night and the Air conditioner during the day.

I also purchased a new tool box for the pickup. It is a much larger box than what I had and everything fits in it with no problem. The old box had to be packed just right or things would not fit in it.

Before we leave here in December I need to have a brake job done on the truck. Also need trailer wheel bearings repacked and check the brakes on it.

Above is a picture Dad e-mailed me, It was taken just a couple of years ago, I am the good looking guy in the middle.
I know, I am bad. Haven’t done an update for awhile. We left Washington almost 2 weeks ago. Destination Willcox, AZ. Well we are almost there. Right now we are in Arizona City, visiting a friend here. We will leave here next Tuesday and travel the last leg to Willcox. We will be there until after thanksgiving.

This was another event filled trip to get here. East side of Snoqualmie pass the carrier for Vicki’s scooter broke. Of course right in the middle of a construction zone with one lane of traffic. Thankfully there was a wide gravel shoulder to get off the highway. Surveyed the damage, gave the carrier a not so nice burial, and a nice guy working the construction there stopped and helped me load the scooter up on the back of the truck, It rode there to Waitsburg WA. Where we stopped to visit friends. Spent 3 nights there and had a great visit. They took us over to Richland and I purchased another carrier for the scooter.

With scooter back on the back of the trailer we were off again. We spent the next night in Mountain Home, ID. At Mountain Home RV Park. Very nice Park, office was friendly and helpful, nice long level pull through concrete sites. Sites had a nice grass area and picnic table. We will stay there again.

Next day was a long day, we drove through absolutely horrible traffic in Salt Lake City and Proveo, UT. I-15 came to a stop and it took almost an hour to go 5 miles. We made it to Beaver where worked last year and spent 2 nights. Got to visit with Leo and Jane (owners of the park) and Leslie, one of the workampers. Sorry we missed Dennis he was off hunting.

From Beaver we made it to Munds Park, AZ. This is just south of Flagstaff, Spent the night and woke up to wind and rain. Rain stayed with us to Camp Verde, then it got nice again. We arrived in Arizona City in early afternoon. Shortly after we left Munds Park the service engine soon light came on. So last Monday the truck went into the hospital again, this time it was the main air sensor that egulates the air going into the engine. Nice cheap fix of only $778.00. OUCH.

Well enough for now, you all take care and God Bless You all.
