The Lantanas went crazy

Trying to crawl up the screened in patio

Thats just one plant...lol

And the work has begun


Last Friday (10/19) we returned to out winter home in Picacho. The trip was long (traveled over 400 miles the last day) but uneventful...oh...except the left front headlight burned out, but that was ok (no biggie compared to the issues we had on the trip to Alaska).

We have returned to a dusty house, the Charger was filthy & our plants had grown so much that some were heading for the neighbors house...lol. So now here we are, Pete has power washed the house, trimmed our plants & the Charger was taken to the dealership for servicing & we had it detailed. Still more to do, but getting it done.

Our travels this summer had its ups & downs, but over all we enjoyed our time on the road & Alaska did offer some beautiful scenery...would we ever go back....nope...this was one of those once in a lifetime trips. Total miles traveled was 19,793
