Happy Friday! It was a drop dead gorgeous day in Tucson yesterday. The temperature climbed up to 75 degrees and it was beautimous.
Pam laundry and I went over to talk with Bill and to give him a demo of The Solution.
He said he had already ordered a gallon so he was convinced it does a pretty good job. The full body paint design on his coach has a lot of black areas, so he was interested in removing a few water marks. He used another product to take care of those.
Bill also showed me the storage and basement area his new Winnebago Ellipse . The passthrough storage area is big, plus he has two bays that have shelves which increase the usable area. Nice coach with a very wide pull out tray.
He showed me his Weather Pro awnings that have an adjustment with some dip settings and toggles to set the wind speed to automatically retract. I found the fuse box on the Roadrunner and a toggle switch but didn't see any information in the manual of how to adjust the wind speed. It is set to automatically retract at 18 mph but I thought it might be good to decrease it to 12-15 mph. Maybe I'll call the manufacturer.
After lunch we ran some errands but first we wanted to go over to the nearby Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.
The Desert Museum is an outdoor series of trails and information which is geared for an all-afternoon type walk. We were not prepared for that--I was thinking it was a hour tour through a building, and we didn't want to cut ourselves short so we decided to come back another time.
But I did take some pictures of the surrounding beauty.
Next we went through Gates Pass to get to the outskirts of Tucson and on to find a Trader Joe's. Tucson has three stores.
Along the way we stopped for some pictures of the valley. Some hikers from a local hiking club had just come off Brown Mountain. They had a four hour hike up the mountain and back and seemed to be enjoying themselves.
I also took some pictures of the valley near Gates Pass with the blue skies and beautiful desert. This is sure beautiful country. It was 'clear and a million' yesterday.
We also had to find a Kinko's to send a fax to our insurance company so we are getting to know our way around Tucson a little bit. The sloping foothills with the mountain back drops remind me a lot of Albuquerque and the backdrop of the Sandia Mountains.
Today we await the arrival of Kelly from Dallas and Adam from Detroit, so it will be a big day.
Hope you are enjoying the week thank you for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles!
