      We up very early as usual  and just took our time  getting ready to hit the road. Walkabouts, coffee and computing, then secure the coach etc..
another wonderful Sunrise here at Pilot Knob California
        Hookup up our car to hit the road about 9:30, Bill and Patsy came over to give us hugs and see ya  on down the road. Patsy gifted us with a couple of wonderful slices of her homemade Banana, nut bread she baked  yesterday. Patsy it is so tasty we will nibble on this for a couple of days, thanks so much !
Heavenly Banana bread
thanks Patsy
    Heading east on I-8 back into Arizona for a nice drive, tail wind pushing us along.
      Though the mountain pass in the Foothills making our way east.
cool water tower for Patsy
not much traffic
      Stopped at Holts Shell in Gila bend, fuelled the coach, topped up our propane and dumped our tanks at their free dump station. From there south on 85 to Why.
Holts Shell love the dinosaurs

  4. For some reason I thought you had full hook ups at Pilot Knob, but I see you had to dump at Gila Bend.
    You might see some wild Donkeys there. They have a book exchange too.

    1. We dumped at Gila Bend to give our back water tank a good cleaning with fresh water and Calgon.
      We keep an eye out for the donkeys here as well as explore the campground and area a bit more.

  5. We always wondered WHY someone would stay in WHY. However, you did find great place to stay for nearly nothing.

  11. On a hot summer afternoon we stopped in Why at Coyote Howls West. They offer full on that side at a reasonable price. Spaces are small, but for an overnight with the AC on - priceless!
