We pulled out of Mesa on November 24th heading to Yuma. We topped off the motorhome fuel and then headed south to Gila Bend to meet up with I-8. We stopped and had lunch in the Gila Bend Elks lodge parking lot, where Bill is a member. Then off we went to Yuma to stay with our friends Dan and Jenny on their lot. We last stayed on their lot in February 2007, but they were not there then and they had since added a casita.
Here is how we were camped after 198 miles.
A view from across the street shows how different the place looks than when we were here in 2007.
