Thomases are leaving Sierra Vista Monday afternoon for Wilcox, Az.  We plan on staying at the Elks Club there that  night and Thusday morning the rig goes in to fix the non-operational brake lights.  Expect a blown 6 amp diode.  We expect to leave Wednesday morning for Moab.  Don't know the route yet as the Toshiba laptop is back the second time to be repaired and the Dell Laptop will not run SA programs anymore.  Needs a re-format.

Ned & I will leave for Moab as soon as hopefully we get a new trunk lid for the Honda.  We only need two days to get there but would rather we had a little more time between Camp Peg and Moab.  Looking forward to lunch with Russ and the Brewers tomorrow in C. Verde.  Maybe we will know something about the lid by then.  Russ and Brewers call us when you get close and we & Millers will meet you at the restaurant.  See you all tomorrow.

Phil: My calendar says 4/28 is Thursday, not Wednesday.


Yeah, Yeah, So everybody has been telling me...;-)

I will call Tues AM and tell them that I really am comming on THURSDAY.

Brewers and I came up to Monument valley today, arriving an hour or so before sunset. The Late afternoon golden sunlight on the buttes ans mesas is fantastic!

Lost my sepentine belt near Sedona. Terry and I were able to fit a new one by hand with inadequate tools. Quite surprised ourselves.

Russ,

Lucky you had one! Not something you're likely to find at the local Seven-Eleven, is it? :)

Don't feel too bad; I just wrote a bank deposit slip with the date May 25 - somehow lost a month along the way ;D

A serpentine is one spare part everyone should carry.  I kept the old one when I replaced ours several years ago and it's in good enough condition to serve as a spare if I break one.  On some engines, it can be replaced easily, on ours I would call CoachNet and tell them I have the belt and a tech would come out and put it on.
Title: Re: Mahoney departing for Moab Monday
Post by: Ron on April 26, 2005, 08:37:33 AM
I replaced the serpentine belt a few days before we left Yuma after inspection revealed the old one had signs of deterioration.  Like Ned said the old one is still good enough for a spare.  Also replaced the V belt while I was in the area.  I would rather replace before they fail is at all possible.

Are you at the Indian campground at the park entrance or at Goldings? Marlene and I are planning on leaving tomorrow, Wed, and spending the nite there before driving up to Portal on Thursday.

Yes they are and if everything goes okay today we will be up there tomorrow evening as well.  The trunk lid came in yesterday and we drove over to Cottonwood to make sure it was the right one.  They were to paint it last night and it should be installed tonight so hopefully we can leave tomorrow morning.  What time would you be leaving Goodyear?

Yes they are what ??? ??? ??? I asked an either or question and you said yes ;D ;D ;D  I would presume the Navajo campground.

We plan on leaving tomorrow AM, as soon as Marlene has the refrigerator loaded. Could be any time between 9 and noon ;) ;)

Does your phone work at Camp Verde? We can call when we are ready to leave.

Yes they are at the Indian CG.  Yes our phones work at Camp Peg's and depending when the trunk lid is put on will determine when we leave.

Pennings on the road to Moab.

We left Sunday and stayed that night at Camp Cummins in Bakersfield. Had service work done and arrived Monday night at the Oasis Las Vegas (site 108) . Will leave tomorrow (Wednesday) for Zion for 1 night and stay Thursday and Friday at Rubby's Inn at Bryce. Friday at Capitol Reef and arrive Moab Saturday or Sunday.

Leave some crumbs along the highway so I can follow your tracks to Moab. Is that a better route than going via Reno & Salt Lake City? We leave Thurs or Fri.

I think from where you are the Reno-SLC-Provo-Price-Gren River-I70 to 191South  to Moab would be a more direct route.  We will arrive Moab on Thursday the 28th,

Have a safe trip.

Post by: Tom on April 26, 2005, 03:53:06 PM
That's kinda what I thought Ron, and it's the way we came to Moab last year. I assume Chris went the other route because of his appointment in Bakersfield. Thanks.
Title: Re: Mahoney departing for Moab Monday
Post by: chris on April 26, 2005, 03:55:05 PM
Hi Tom,

The Reno SLC may be a faster route since you leaving late and remember you have to arrive in time at Moab to secure your reserved sewer line. Auction for not occupied sewer hook ups will start Sunday morning 6.00 am. ;D
We took the Southern rout.e since we had to stop in Bakersfield, make our annual donnation in Las Vegas and spend a few days at Zion and Bryce. So if you travel North I can save the bread crums.

Chris
Title: Re: Mahoney departing for Moab Monday
Post by: Tom on April 26, 2005, 04:00:47 PM
OK save the breadcrumbs for next time Chris. We'll head through Reno & SLC as we did last year. If I'm not there in time for the auction, I'll just borrow Ron's portable full hookup. I'm also allergic to Vegas.

Hope you have your notes with you; I need to pick your brain again for our trip north this summer.

See you Sunday.

Hi All,

Tim and I are in Prescott, AZ and will leave for Holbrook for Wed/Thur then onto Canyon De Chelly on Friday.  Seems like lots of Framily are heading up through No. AZ.  If anyone sees an Allegro Bus towing a small bronze toyota pick up with a silver cover....honk!!! <grin>

We've been "Touring" all over since arriving in Prescott on Sunday.  Been to Jerome, Cottonwood, Sedona and back through Camp Verde.

See ya all soon.  We'll be in Moab on Monday.

Hi Ken and Sheila,

 We left  Monument Valley at 10:15 heading north. At mm 59 saw a sign Construction ahead SLOW to 45.  A little farther up a flagger stopped us for 7 minutes while trucks and cars passed the  other direction.  It was an interesting 7 minutes to watch the big heavy equipment carve a new direction in the environment s they are building a new set of lanes.  After we got through it  Terry's comment to Russ on the CB was "Well that was hardly worth all of the ink it got on the forum."  I'll bet they won't even be working on Saturday.  Cloudy here, bring rain gear.

Hi Betty
Thanks for the Hwy 191 construction info.  We just discussed it here at Camp Peg's and since we will be going thru there on Sunday the construction workers will probably be taking a day off so we should be ok.  Thanks again.

Even if they are working the wait is only a few minutes, the construction area is only a few hundred yards long.
