Yesterday I spent the entire day driving in the rain and when I stopped in Gallup at the USA RV park the rain caught up with me again. It has rained every day since last Monday when I had Mel washed in Kingman. I probably could end the nationwide drought just by driving from truck wash to truck wash around the country. This morning I see blue skies, but there is a Blue Beacon truck wash just up the street. I think I'll pass and enjoy the sunshine. My sister Mary Michael and her husband Herb drove to the north rim of the Grand Canyon yesterday and between the rain and the fog saw nothing. They are heading for Bryce Canyon today, I hope they have better luck today. The rest of my sisters and their husbands went to the Painted Desert yesterday and I don't think their luck was much better. They were in Sedona last night and will be there a couple of days before heading back to Phoenix to catch planes home and some of them even have to go back to work.
Today's plan is is to drive the 100 miles to Grants. I will have to make a fuel stop and a Walmart stop and then I'll be ready for the run to Elephant Butte in the morning. Another tough day in store for enjoying the good life.
