I stopped in Casa Grande to pick up my heater & parts, as the guy behind Precision RV who was suppose to install my catalytic heater turned out to be a royal PITA. It wasn’t until night fall, did he say “Oops, I found your email, come back I will fix er up”. To my response, I left at first light. So much for having scheduled this a full month before, but no one should be treated like a low life that stepped on his life. A few says he does good work, well he lacks a serious ingredient when working with the public. I have since gotten two other recommendations, which I will follow up on when I get back in the area in late March.
So I’m off on a new adventure, a new style (for me) type of travel, and one that will provide lots of fun. I have met up with my Lazy Daze friends Pat & Doris, they are a hoot (pun intended) to be around and I’m delighted I get to tag along. They are off to New Orleans via Texas. That in and of itself doesn’t quite describe it. Pat is a birder and we are birding our way across Texas. Now I have never done anything remotely like this before, still haven’t a clue just what that may involve – but it doesn’t matter. New places to go, new places to see, new things to do and I get to put a new State or two on my logo map!
We left Deming, NM mid morning. We are presently at a Walmart in El Paso, TX. As we drove thru the horrendous traffic thru downtown El Paso this afternoon – off to our right was a constant view of a third world country – Mexico. I had forgotten this. It was a stark reality of where we are.
Tomorrow, I believe we are heading into the mountains… Fort Davis, I think and go to the McDonald’s Observatory, then onto to Big Bend NP or SP. Not knowing if I will have any connection, it may take a few days to update this blog. I plan to take photos too, again we shall see if I can get them uploaded.
Woo-hoo! This is going to be fun…
