California Has A Monopoly

I do believe that California has a monopoly on the worst roads in the nation. We left Pahrump and headed towards Yuma, Az. US95 in California is probably on the top 10 list of worst roads to travel. Not only is it narrow, full of dips (California doesn't believe in culverts, so they just have ups and downs) it was falling apart . We had to stop for road construction ( I know it's hard to believe that they were actually working on it) and I stepped out of the motorhome and you could actually pick up chunks of asphalt 6 ianches square from the road.

But now on the brighter news. We're in Yuma, Arizona for the next 5 days or so. We'll go to Algodones, Mexico a couple of times for the food, and of course bargain shopping. Other than that, we'll just sit back and play it by ear. The long pants have been put in the laundry hamper and the short pants are back out.

We haven't noticed any more "signs" in the coach, so we think that our hitchhiker was a single, but we're not letting our guard down. Peppermint oil on cotton balls in all the cupboards and drawers. The coach smells like Christmas Candy.

More later.

  1. Peppermint Oil? That's a new one. Let me know how it works. I think I would like the fragrance of peppermint over bounce.

    Have fun in Mexico.
