The Camper

We're officially on vacation now! My parents have generously lent us their camper AND the truck to drive it around for our honeymoon road-trip to the southwest. Dad went over the whole thing and got it all cleaned up, primed and ready for us, which is just wonderful. We picked it up yesterday and drove it back over the pass to our house so we can load it up with everything we'll need for the next three weeks.
It's a sweet little travelling home for us, complete with a refrigerator, a three-burner stove, an oven, a sink with running water, and an amazing heater. The truck has four-wheel drive, new tires and shocks, so it makes for a pretty cushy ride. I guess we are getting old - a few years ago I wouldn't have dreamed of taking a camper road trip for our honeymoon, yet here we are - and I'm really looking forward to the luxury of having a heater & a bed instead of a tent! While it's small for an RV, its by far the largest and most top-heavy thing I've ever driven, which will take some getting used to! Appologies in advance to anyone who gets stuck behind us driving cautiously down some windey road in Nevada, Arizona or New Mexico - we're probably going as fast as we can without tipping!

Hello you two: My mom lives in Bisbee, AZ, just about 100 miles south of Tucson and a stone's throw from Mexico--if you're poking around that area at all. It's a big house with great views into Mexico. She'd be happy to give you an extended base camp while you're down there. I'd be happy to pass along her contact information. Tyree

Have a great time exploring our southwest reaches! I'm excited to hear about where you end up venturing to. A SW odyssey has been on my to do list for many years now- it's going to happen sooner or later!

Take care, be safe, and enjoy the adventure!
