After moving back to the lower 48, I have bought an RV and have been living on the road.

I have been in Panguitch, Utah, for a few days. I like it. Took a nice cruise on Friday, driving a loop around nearby Mount Dutton (11041 FT). Headed north on 89 into Circleville, then Junction. Small towns, no gas stations. Then it was a smaller road RT 22 south through Antinomy. After Antinomy there was no sign of people until I got to Bryce Canyon City. Drove through a BIG ranch with cattle scattered for miles. Very nice. Stopped several times for photos...

Today we left Blake Ranch around 9:30 AM. I stopped at a truck tire center right by the campsite. I called them yesterday and asked if they could check my tires before I hit the road. They said yes, come on by. When I did that, there was trouble, as usual, right away. Getting service of any type is VERY tough with RVs. They said they do not have the equipment to reach the odd angled air inlets I have. I should have handed him the five dollar gauge I had in my...

Sunday was another big cruise day.
I was going to do it all Saturday, but I neglected to secure my new portable TV antenna. I made it to Kingman when I realized that. The wind was really blowing, and it was supposed to get worse later. I heard that this antenna, very light weight, tends to blow around in high wind. So I decided to turn around and take care of business. Once I was back, I saw the sky turning to threatening and said I was done. About ...

A good day today.
First, to make it interesting, there was a big storm coming over Hualapai Peak just south of I-40 where I am staying (EXIT 66).
But I went and bought an expensive antenna for DISH TV, as well as a receiver box. But I wait until tomorrow to hook it up. Now, I cruise.
I jumped on RT 66 and headed east. This is a 65 mph road, more if you can get away with it. This may be the approximate route of old 66, but it is...

I was worried when Dutchie slept yesterday afternoon through this morning with no eating, drinking, or bathroom breaks. She got up this morning and seemed happy, purring and wanting a belly rub. She had a little water and a couple bites of food, then went to the windshield prime view and zonked out again. All day. She got up and had some dinner, now she is looking out the bedroom window. I think she is doing OK, but the leg is pretty much out of action. Oh, sh...
