Standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
We gathered up this morning and left our favorite RV resort so far. The Apaches run a nice place..........and to quote Supertramp....."but I must be moving on...." And yes, we must.
There are lots of rumors that this isn't the real corner, and it's another corner.....whatever. We thought it was fun. We went in the gift shop, got souvenirs, took pictures.....all the touristy stuff. But that's why it's there. Then we walked back, got in the motorhome and headed east.
Toward the end of the day, in the painted desert
From there, we went to Gallup, NM, where we're spending the night. We're staying in another Walmart Parking lot.....then we're off east again tomorrow!
Sundown in Northern Arizona
Quote of the day: We ate in a bad diner in Benson which wasn't at all good. Today's choice had Laurie worried. Laurie, before the food comes: "This place has the same menu as that bad place in Benson". Bill, after the food comes: "The only thing this place and the place in Benson have in common is they're both in Arizona".
Song of the day- I thought about "Take it easy", since we were in Winslow. Another Jackson Browne song was playing when we were taking pictures of the sunset....."Running on Empty".....a very apt choice. But another song really sums up where we ended up.

I'm Bill. My wife Laurie and I love to travel and share our stories. We especially love it when we have been able to motivate our readers to start traveling on their own, and making their own stories.
