A Gunfight in the Desert

We awoke again today to the sound of the Sandhill Cranes heading out to feed.  They sure make a racket.  We are heading down the road again today with the intention of visiting the historic town of Tombstone AZ and then on to Casino Del Sol in Tucson AZ.

We decided not to take Highway #80, but rather to follow Davis Road to where it intersects with #80, just south of Tombstone.  It is a paved road with a few Cattle guards across the road but is in good shape and we just meandered along at about 45 mph.  It is really pretty ranch country the whole way.

The Bisbee Breakfast Club

The wildlife area we spent the night in is renown for its Sandhill Cranes.  Part of the experience is seeing them all take to the air to go off to the corn fields to feed for the day.  So I peered out the bedroom window about 5:30 am and saw some cars starting to gather in the parking lot in the pitch black dark.  I went back to sleep until about 6:30 when it started to get noisy with the birds starting to leave.

Thousands of Sandhill Cranes

We were on the road by 9 am this morning because we have not yet become accustomed to the time change to Mountain.  Our bodies still thought it was 10 am so no one was complaining.  First thing we did this morning while leaving was to get lost.  Bad timing on some lights spread us out and when you are depending on following the leader (us) and we get the green lights and everyone behind us gets yellow, you are not ready to start to navigate yourself, so by the time you try to get your bearings, you have blown by the turn you were supposed to make and find yourself in foreign territory without a plan.  As it turned out everyone ended up in the right place in the end and off we went on today's adventure.

We are back!!!!!

Its been over a week since we have posted a blog.  The main reason for not posting is that our internet service has been next to non-existent, so the downloading of pictures was not going to happen.  I tried a few times but after striking out, I closed the computer and went about my business.  Pat and Harold have arrived and have joined our convoy.  The Ponderosa, Roundtuit, and the Hitchhiker are quite a site going down the road. 

Now that I am back in the land of Wifi, I will start with today's post and try to update the rest of the days in between as best I can.  So here goes.

Back to the Beach

We decided that the weather was going to break for a little bit back at South Padre Island so we will head up there again to give P&H a chance to sit by the ocean.  Our travels today will be like this.

We all lined up and "The Bird" serenaded us out of the campground.  Each bird built has a built in loudspeaker on which they can play a variety of different clips from songs.  It is unique to this type of motor home, and we are always honored when they play it for us.
