I am in the “Old Country”. I did the journey in one day not two as I usually do. I left as early as I could from San Felipe and got to the border about 9am. I finally crossed the border and cleared Customs around 11am and proceeded to Yuma for lunch and fuel. I left Yuma after fueling up and headed north on I-8. As a side note; Yuma seemed quite busy to me more traffic and people than I remembered, maybe I’m used to our little Pueblo and was in culture shock.
I stopped at Dateland for a date shake, I really enjoy date shakes and dates from their orchard. The travel center has some nice gifts and other refreshments as well, I encourage anyone traveling to stop and enjoy a break there.
I got to Casa Grande in good shape and fueled up again for the final leg of the trip to Vail AZ. I called ahead to Samantha and offered dinner at the Triple T truck stop and she accepted. We had dinner there and remarked how our appetites had changed over the years and that we ate so little now.
The trip to the house was uneventful and we stayed up late catching up on our lives eventually going to bed around mid-night. All and all a good trip.
