Woke up before dawn this morning and started tightening down the WL getting it ready for a 26 mile drive across the massive Phoenix roadways. We were on our way to the west side to the Empire Southwest CAT shop to drop off the WL to have a health inspection.
It was about an hour drive on the most crowded highways I have ever had to travel. Stop and go traffic on six lanes of hwy 60 and I-10. Trying to change lanes was enough to give me panic attacks. Thank goodness I am big and people move over when I start my lane changes. Luckily, I made it without hitting anyone!
Arrived at the shop around 9 o’clock and pulled in and waited till 10 o’clock to let Bill Darlington know I was there. His assistant got my information and from the talk I could tell they were super busy and will just have to work me in as soon as possible. Probably, not today.
They will not allow me to stay in the WL overnight, so I grabbed what I needed and Yuma and I headed out looking for a decent motel to spend the night or possibly more. I finally found a nice place in Peoria, Arizona, on the west side of Phoenix. It is a Days Inn.Deb and Riley, On a long and lonesome highway…. While I’m waiting for the phone call from the shop, I’ll drive out there tomorrow and visit them for the day.
It’s now 6:30 and I’ve had my shower and received no phone call from the shop. It is now near time for “Survivor”.
Thanks for stopping by.
