We did have some traffic and train noise in the night, but it wasn't loud and did not disturb our sleep. Craig was fascinated by the amount of late-night activity in the parking lot of the 24-hour Super Center Walmart. He got up and raised the front shade to look out several times. I felt quite safe with the security patrol car constantly driving around.
We remember Schlotzky's from when we lived in Texas many years ago. They have no locations in our home area. We were not disappointed. Our sandwiches were as yummy (and unhealthy) as we remembered from the early 80's when we lived in Texas.
We had one little glitch when Craig took a corner too tight in the Walmart parking lot, but we solved it by unhitching the car, backing both it and the Alfa up, making the turn, and rehitching. A bother, but better than frame damage!
We drove about 300 miles and stopped at another Walmart in Avondale AZ, just west of Phoenix. Casa Grande, the location of the rally, is less than 70 miles away and we don't check in until noon.
The weather here is hot and sunny. We ran the heater this morning, and have the windows open now to catch some evening breeze.
Every time he does this, he says it's the most challenging lubrication problem he's seen.
What can I say!
And he brought me flowers last week too!
Meanwhile, I have been relaxing as we drive and wearing my happy feet socks.
I do my share. We trade off as driver about every hundred miles or so.
