Homeward Bound 5.23.19

We got up this morning to the smell of home made waffles, bacon and eggs, coffee and oj. ๐Ÿฅ“๐ŸฅšOur visit with Mark and Roxanne was great as usual. They are such gracious hosts. We feel more like family than guests. ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ’ That is a gift! Such great friends!!Before we left we had to refil our water bottles. Craig hooked up our Kangen Water machine in the laundry room and filled a few containers for the road.We will have this unit installed under the kitchen sink in Shorty so that we will always have our alkalized water available when we travel. But for now we hook it up as needed – at almost any sink.Thank you Mark and Roxanne for showing us around town. We had a GREAT time as always! Let’s work on that Alaskan cruise and that week in Utah at the Natiomal parks! Until next time.๐Ÿ˜ ๐ŸฅฐSo far Arizona is high on our list of places to move to. We both like Prescott.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘On our way out of town we drove through the small town of Chino Valley to look at some homes. We stopped at the Chamber of Commerce and spoke with a volunteer about the community. She shared that most of the homes were built on an acre or so, which was nice. But like Roxanne said, the town lacked “charm.”๐Ÿ˜‘Heading West on Highway 40 we see alot of open plains. Tut-tut, it looks like rain.๐ŸŒงSaw the signs for Historic Route 66.No, we didn’t take Historic Route 66; we’ve driven it before. We opted for Highway 40, it’s a little more direct.Highway as far as we can see.We stopped in Kingman, AZ for dinner. Cracker Barrel has some GOOD fried chicken!Then from From Kingman to Bullhead city.Neither of us had been to these cities and took this route out of curiosity.Observation: In all of the states we visited we saw Dollar General, Family Dollar, & Dollar Tree stores. Hum, might have to look into their stock.๐Ÿค”From Kingman to Buckeye City, AZ.Some dusk/evening views.Craig being the “destination driver” that he is was determined to get to Barstow, CA. It’s 10 p.m; we made it.We are in the Carle’s Jr. parking lot that provides RV n big rig spaces. We are parked between two big rigs. I didn’t drive but I am tired and a feeling a bit irritated.๐Ÿ˜ซ I need some sleep.๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด g’night.๐Ÿ˜‰
