Old and New Memories

I sure had a great time chauffeuring Matt and Sherry around Southern Utah in the Jeep.  Much of the ground we cover I have already shared on this website multiple times so I will add just a few new notes. 

In addition to visiting Capitol Reef, we meet Jim Brown for a couple of days of boon docking at the Temple Mountain BLM site just outside of Goblin Valley State Park.

Sometimes the traffic in Utah can be strange

While at this remote, cell service free site, we discover Red Canyon.  An easy day’s ride (I do not even have to air down my tires!) that includes lunch at a back country airport fittingly named Hidden Splendor.  For a thrill, click this link to view a video of a landing here.  As Storm would say, this airport offers the chance to get in some tournament grade flying – watch those canyon walls!

After Moab

Greetings from Thelma and Louise Point

A few days in Moab group riding with George, Michelle, Mike and Leslie finishes off my mini vacation.  From Moab, Matt, Sherry and I go our separate ways and I set off by myself for Arizona. 

At my first fuel stop I discover the Jeep front wheels have turned on the trailer.  Probably because Hwy 550 south between Farmington, NM and Albuquerque has roller coaster dips in a few places that cause the entire RV to become airborne.  I feel like I am riding a dirt bike on the whoops – not a happy feeling in an RV.

I am just glad the Jeep stays on the trailer even though it is a little crooked!  However this event begins a pattern of misbehavior on the part of the RV that causes me to fear that I won’t make Arizona before the RV refuses to proceed any further.  More on this in my next post.

    Great pictures as usual, thanks. Hope the RV has not gone crazy on you. We are getting ours out of the shop today, only 400 this time. :>)))) Looking forward to the next blog, hope all is OK. I thought you got rid of the trailer??? GOD BLESS

      After all the work I am having done $400 is looking good to me! I am not sure whether the RV or me is going more crazy – some days it is hard to tell 🙂
      No, I kept the trailer so I have the option to back up if I make a horrible driving mistake.
