Just a ride thru

I really enjoyed my time at High Jolly but only stayed a few days.

I didn’t any more than pull in and some guy decided he would try to bully me because I was wearing a mask. Those of you that know me personally know how that went.

As much as I adore Bob Wells and what he is doing with HOWA my ride through the RTR WRTR venue was all I did, ride through and drop off my donation, maybe next time.

Now I am hoping to meet up with sister Laura for another spring adventure.

Tombstone and Bisbee

Just a short trip to test out my new Jackery 500 power station and Alpicool fridge. Which I recommend highly. I kept the jackery plugged into a 12v plug that is only powered when the engine is running and then the fridge (which I set to eco/save) to the jackery. Running overnight the Jackery never went below 85%, the night was cool, so the next trip will tell if it works harder.

Night one free at Whitewater Draw in McNeal AZ. I have lived in places with a lot of birds my whole life but this blew me away and most of them had already left.

Sand Hill Cranes
It’s a party.

No need for an alarm, the noise builds as the sun comes up and then they are off for breakfast.

Day and Night 2.

In 1999 I had a cerebral aneurysm while doing a show in Phoenix AZ and upon waking up my late husband Ron and I made a pledge that we would never put off seeing something along the way again. So we went to Tombstone on the way to our next show, I was kind of out of it on medication so it went on a bucket list to do again. Before he passed away he told me to finish the bucket list. I already ticked off Quartzite so Tombstone was next.

There are two lots for overnight parking behind the courthouse, cars, and vans in the second lot for $5 the first lot is car day use and RVs in the lot at the bottom of the street for $10.

Fremont Street

This shot was taken early in the morning before the crowds.

Day 3 Bisbee and Cochise Stronghold.

What a neat town and I can’t wait to return. The museum and other venues I wanted to see were not open till the weekend so I have to go back.

This is what greeted me outside the museum.

Malachite/Azurite
Downtown

The sign along I-10 for the Cochise Stronghold has always stirred the imagination.

First and foremost do not follow Google maps follow the road sign.

I had intended to stay the night at the stronghold, but a recent fire due to camper negligence reduced the camping area and I got there late so it goes back on the list and I get back on the Interstate heading home to get my jab..

Next trip next month to find my fathers grave in Mississippi.
