“RUNabout” was right!

Well, it looks like I have some writing to do!

We’re back home in the STL, safe and sound after 4037 miles in 18 days!

This trip was a little different for us.  Normally we travel hard for a day or two, setup home at our destination, and stay there for as many as 8-10 consecutive nights.  This trip, our stops were as follows:

Amarillo, TX : 1 Night
Winslow, AZ : 4 Nights
Las Vegas, NV : 4 Nights
Grand Canyon, AZ : 2 Nights
Fountain Hills, AZ : 4 Nights
Tucumcari, NM : 1 Night
Tulsa, OK : 1 Night

This made for a LOT of driving, and it made it hard to make any one spot “home.”  We didn’t unpack as much as we normally do at each site, and we didn’t keep a fully stocked fridge and do a lot of cooking in the RV like we normally do.  Instead we kept moving, kept active, kept seeing people, and kept eating on the road.

This also made it hard for me to get into a regular blogging groove.  It was difficult to check in on Facebook and post photos… I only shared a fraction of the photos I took.

So, this section is going to be a retrospective.  I’ll try to get at least one post added here every day, which should also help me get back into the overall blogging groove.

Thank you, friendly reader, for checking in!

First Full Day in Winslow, AZ

Actually, we are about 1/2 way between Winslow and Flagstaff, Arizona, at the Meteor Crater RV Park. We’re not on “vacation” for the next few days, we actually have our office setup in the RV. But, when we get off work, we will be exploring the Meteor Crater, Winslow, Flagstaff, and any old roads we won’t get arrested for riding on. Today we have to make grocery shopping a priority, because we didn’t bring any with us this time. 

First Fuel Stop

We really didn’t need to stop, but we ended up sharing the road with some chump pulling horses with a Ford that couldn’t pull the grades but wanted to mess with me anyway, and a double-tow FedEx trucker. So, I bailed to let them get on down the road, top off the tank, hit the can, grab some snacks, and check on the bike. LOVE using these big rig pumps! (Had to ask a trucker how to use them!)
