Spent a very pleasant evening Thursday at the home of lifelong friends, visiting and having dinner. We don’t see them very often and it was fun to spend one on one time with them.
Friday drove over the mountains to Prescott. Nice, wide road with some noticeable elevation change but very doable for even big rigs (trucks). The road south out of Prescott is the fun one. True mountain road. Two lane road of comfortable width. There is a sign just out of town saying trucks over 40’ prohibited. Soon found out why. Twisty turny road with MANY tight turns and hairpins rated at 20 mph or less. And the turns are banked to achieve that even speed . Ups and downs but no great elevation change ‘till the last part when descending to the valley. Carbus did fine and fit the turns with no problem. Best asphalt roller coaster yet. :)
Once back at lower elevation, the boredom of Arizona roads returns. LONG, straight stretches with little scenery change. We stopped in Quartzsite and parked in a BLM area that is several miles north of the freeway. Very quiet and dark. :)
This morning it was ten miles to California (we are back the same time as all of you) and then 90+ miles of desert. We are at an ELKS lodge RV spot for the night and then on to Burbank. Hopefully Sunday traffic will not be too bad.
