Awake 5:28 am Temp outside 44 Clear sky Overnight Tucson, AZ

Kathy calls Al on his cell phone--we expected that he would be @ home in
Sun City, AZ but he & Wilma are in Michigan. Wilma's mother passed away so
they will be there for another week or 2. Kathy mentions that we are
returning to his ranch today. Al says: "You'll have company..Robin is
there & maybe another couple."

We shower @ the Beaudry facility, pay our camping bill for the extra 5
days & leave their campground @ 10:55 am. Another great day for travel. @
exit 208 on I-10, we stop & queue for having our coach washed @ the Blue
Beacon Truck Wash. There must have been 10 to 12 guys with brushes, soap
sprayers & rinse sprayers attack our rig as we drive into the building.
$30.50 later, our machine looks great. It has taken Kathy & I...3 days @ 4
hrs per day to get similar results that they can do in 35 mins. Now I
wonder, do we need that kind of exercise?

Arrive @ Al & Wilma's Rancho Ventura @ 2:20 pm. Sure enough, Robin is here
with his 40 ft coach & another couple with their motorhome. The only
parking spot left is where we usually store our coach during the
winter....behind the BIG shop.....so that's where we park. We talk with
Robin for awhile & then Kathy gets a clean rag out & removes some streak &
runs that resulted from our air drying on I-10.

Today's drive: 143 miles 3 hrs 4 mins 14.9 gallons used 9.64 miles
per gallon.

Make a quick trip to Costco to pick up some groceries and cleaning
supplies. Costco is great, but we cannot get several items because we have
to buy in too big a quantity...too much for two people to use and too much
weight and space to store in our motorhome. We manage to buy plenty,

7:15 Dinner: Lamb chops with mint jelly, asparagus with boursin cheese,
wild & brown rice, 4 bean salad & fresh romaine tossed salad.

Late evening: a little TV local channel watching. Even later evening:
Reading in bed.

Today's high in Sun City in the shade=62 Lights out: 10:33 pm
