On the road

I’m in Gila Bend, AZ about 100 miles from Yuma, my destination. But after 6 hours on the interstate through the desert, I’m beat.

Without planning it, I managed to watch more of the Olympics than I thought. It was due to a coincidence that I had cable or air TV, as well as grid […]

Staying in Deming

I have my “Deming Rule”: If the forecast is for winds 35 mph or more, stay put. The forecast is for winds 35-45 mph this weekend.

Wind makes for stressful driving, and the trucks make it even worse. Then, if this area of New Mexico is not the dustiest in the country, it’s number 2.

Pot in Washington

According to KOMO TV, the last known medical cannabis cooperative in the state was raided and shut down. Which means Washington is the first state to go completely retail without pretense of medical use.

Contrast this with around 19 states currently debating medical use laws, which even if passed are doomed to be obsolete […]

Things in Deming

Jim and Bobbie stopped by yesterday on their way to Phoenix from New Orleans. Haven’t seen them in three years, so that was good. Unfortunately their black tank broke on their way out of NO, which makes an RV pretty useless. So they’re motelling it until they get home.

Two years ago I replaced two […]

Deming, NM

It had been raining the last couple of days, but I had a little break to get to Deming. Then the water really came down once I got parked.

It was a good time in Benson. The group was smaller than expected, but then after ten years, a lot of folk don’t travel much anymore. […]

Benson, AZ

I landed at an rv park to meet up with several people I’ve known since being on the road. We’ll be here until the end of the week. Should be fun!

More pot in Oregon

The US Attorney for Oregon called a meeting of stakeholders to discuss the overproduction of legal marijuana in Oregon. It’s guessed that Oregon produces three times what it consumes legally, presumably the excess is sent to other states, which is a violation of federal trafficking laws.

He said “Make no mistake. We are going to […]

Out of Yuma

I got my mail today, so off I go tomorrow to Tucson, with a stop in Gila Bend. The weather is excellent, and the citrus is abundant.

Then, off to Benson AZ for a get-together with old friends. Since Benson is sorta close to New Mexico, it’s off to Deming for a green chili cheeseburger […]
