Seems they are special, so I called my good friends across town, and Sam said they could do it and to come by Monday morning. One more treacherous drive 26 miles across town. NOT! I am going to go over tomorrow afternoon. Should not be as bad on a Sunday afternoon. I will spend the evening camped outside their place and be Johnny on the spot, Monday morning.
I wanted to make sure the WL would start and it did. Pretty good this time. It does seem the exhaust smoke is better. Didn't flood the area. Decided to make sure the engine light was still doing its thing so we headed toward Florence with the thought that if it came on, we would turn around and immediately come back to Kay's house.
Sure enough, it came on after about 16 miles and turned off and on at a steady pace for about 5 miles and then it was gone for the rest of the drive back.
Spent a little time after we returned to rest and pick up around the inside to make it more comfortable. Not knowing if I'll be packing a trailer soon kind of slow things down.
Around 2:30, Yuma and I jumped in the Jeep and took a ride down Apache Trail for about 10 miles and stopped at a trail heading up towards Superstition Mountains. I can tell I'm out of shape as we didn't make it far. I had forgotten my camera so these are phone shots.

Didn't stay long. But it was relaxing although tiring for me. Kept Yuma on a leash for fear of snakes as it is not cool enough to get them underground quite yet.
On the way back home I just had to get a picture of the quaint Elvis Wedding Chapel. I think a wedding was in progress.
Just before dusk, we jumped in the Jeep and drove to McDonalds. What did I buy? Six chicken nuggets and fries. What is it with chicken! I also got Yuma a hamburger.
Enjoyed this day. At least I had a couple of southwest adventures if things fall apart. Thanks for stopping by.
