Wife is in Taiwan visiting family, kids doing things so with my older son we will be heading South. NO PLANS, just heading out. We have a limited amount of time so it will be a fast trip. If anyone in the area we might try to meet up.

Leaving Sacremento in a few hours. RAIN RAIN RAIN, El ninyo has hit, Was hoping to drive to some warmer weather but it looks like it will be in the 50s all weekend everywhere.

PM me if you are in this area

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Hi Ed
Sorry we can't meet you.
Looks like you'll get out of the rain in Quartzite but only up to the mid-50's--- and getting towards chilly at night ---- so good luck.
We are currently in Yukon-- so for comparision with Quartzite, we will be about 30 below zero (F) tonight. Coolest night of the year so far.
We may get to that area when we return to AZ.

Regards
Bud

We are back. rather fast trip but we have things to do back home. Got delayed in a snow storm at Tehachapie and then from there on bitterly cold.

Went thru Quartzsite, around Yuma and then on to Tucson. Spent 5 hours at the Pima Museum walking around (again in the COLD) looking at aircraft, so many memories! My son had never been there.

Back home on Sunday night. 2350 miles in 3 1/2 days. Long over due quality time with my eldest son.

Breakaway ran well but still chasing some electrical glitches. Cruise control drops off from time to time and the Big Boy relay connectiong the house and chassis batteries drop at the same time. I know why but can not find the source of the problem. Will be tracing the trouble in the next few days

Bud, let me know the next time you are on the West Area, will try to hook up with you.
