It is getting hot...

Right now it is 88 outside and expected to hit 90 before storms come thru later today. I turned on the refer yesterday and filled it today with food, it is keeping
40/8 F on 4 bars on electric currently. Less than 72 hours before liftoff.....

Hey, hurry up and put some miles on the Hemi!

Bring the warm weather too with you, although we seem to be warming up ahead of your arrival anyway.

It was 37 F as I drove into Las Vegas, NM this morning, after a couple of hours of driving rain and 30 knot winds. I'm done-- I'm going to give New Mexico a break and go to Osoyoos. I'll see you there.

So you decided to head north, maybe we will see you on the road, we should be in California next Saturday night.

I'm going to head north at first. Santa Fe for some shopping and vehicle maintenance, then Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado, then a long stretch to the Spokane, WA area. I want to photograph the Palouse region for a couple of days, then I'll head into Canada for the rally. So I probably won't see anyone until I'm in Osoyoos. My plans may change, though; you never know.

We stayed at Storrie Lake State Park there which has few sites but with cabanas. It was sunny! So you just keep taking rain all around with you. They would be very glad to see you there because they had had such a lack of rain that the lake had basically disappeared when we were there.

Mike there's campsites right at Great Sands but you might have a problem fitting your 21 in one. There is a commercial RV campsite a few short miles before the park entrance. Just sayin' a heads up.
