Days 65 & 66 – Cameron AZ to New River AZ – September 2 & 3, 2011


Today’s 65 Mileage: 166
Total Miles to Date: 3941
Miles to Home: 148

Yesterday’s traffic from Cameron to New River was fairly light however the traffic in the opposite direction was full of campers and vehicles pulling boats.

Today will be our last relaxing day of doing very little before arriving home tomorrow. Hopefully, we will be in between the holiday traffic and we should have the highway pretty much to ourselves. We should arrive home in time to empty the motorhome and startup the house before day gets too hot as Tucson day temperatures are still over 100 degrees.

Some people thought that we were in an accident when they read that we were having the windshield replaced. The actually reason for replacing the windshield was due to a rock strike several years ago. The rock created a fairly large star burst in the lower right section of the left windshield. I filled it in using my repair kit and all was well until this trip. A crack started to grow a little each day. I tried to stop drill the crack and inject more glass repair resin. That stopped the growth for a couple of days but then the crack continued to grow. So while we were at Camp Charlie’s I had the windshield replaced.
