Finally an internet connection, so time to update.
Jan 6 Uneventful drive from El Centro to Phoenix. Checked into our site and went to visit one of the guys on the car forum. Afterwards we went for dinner at one of Guy's Diners Drive-ins and Dives restaurants – Haus Murphy in Glendale.
Jan 7 Took a drive towards Tuscon and checked out the Boyce Thompson State Park arboretum for a while. Many, many species of cactus on display. Then drove through the countyside. Still not warm enough to put the top down, though. On the way back, we stopped in Glendale again at another Triple D diner – Thee Pitts Again.
Jan 8 just lazed around Phoenix area. Off tomorrow morning.
Jan 9 Leisurely drive from Phoenix to Benson, AZ. Set up camp and went to Tombstone – home of Boot Hill and the OK Corral. This is a restored historic western town, with the downtown area businesses keeping the 1800s look, including staff wardrobe.
Total miles so far - 2143 (3471 KM)
Will post photos as the internet connection allows
