Cold nights warm days. thats what we love about the southwest, but the hitch has set in, gotta move on down the road soon.

Where are we today ?
      Cool night below freezing again but that is normal for this time of year. Great sleeping weather though. Up early as usual waiting for the sunrise to get my first walkabout of the day. only 24 (-4c) this morning so a bit of frost on the car windows until the sun hits them.
       My early walkabouts take me around the campground until the sun comes up then the road back through the desert and around by the cemetery, guaranteed to be quiet there.
so peaceful
      We had sunshine and a wonderful day, temps in the mid 60's f very nice with the intense sun. Run about town for a few things, love the Ace hardware in here, one of the biggest I have ever been in and they are so helpful, talk about customer service, it's top notch!
       But we have the hitch itch, we have been in this area over 2 weeks now (mind you we love Benson) but gotta move, somewhere, anywhere is good. Got things done here, got my hearing aide back from repairs, some coach repairs done, Thanksgiving taken care of, so now we can move on down the road. Monday we outta here.
       Afternoon reading in the sun, then shade, then sun, then the wind comes and goes but the sun here all day. Love the afternoon reading for the 2 of us.
       About 3:30 I fired up our Weber to cook some pork ribs in a pan with sauerkraut for an hour or so then set on my grill mat and slathered on the BBQ sauce  just to glaze then and then they are so amazing. If you like the recipe is HERE or my recipe blog top right sidebar. The grill mat keep the grill clean too.
       Still windy so my homemade windbreak keeps the grill up to heat and working wonderful, notice the blue, cloudless Arizona skies.
the windbreak works wonderful
the grill mat works great, keeps the
 grill clean and leaves the grill marks too
add a fresh salad and was wonderful
.        Glad that you stopped by and really hope your day was as wonderful as ours.

  1. We only dropped to 44 last night so no frost on the windshield. I'm sure glad about that. My hitch itch is really going to take a beating this year. Oh well. Life sometimes happens that way as you know.

    1. Nice that is warmer there.
      And like you said, life does get in the way of things, but at least we are upright and breathing.

  2. Cool nights are definitely cool but not so cool you have almost ice on your windshield. Warm days and not hot days are also good. Winter is here and you've got to be in an area to still enjoy the winter. That's why both of us are south and not north.

  3. Your night temps are lower than what we have up here at the coast. Checked out Yuma AZ yesterday and only 15 C early afternoon there. That's pretty cold for AZ.

  6. We pulled into Mesa, AZ yesterday about 3:30. Low 70's and no wind, unlike Yuma so it was very nice. I forgot to reset my min - max thermometer but there was a hint of frost on the car this morning at 6:30.
