Day 142: Gilbert Ray Campground, Tucson, AZ Sunny and warm. It is just too nice here to move. We are sitting in the shade and morning breeze watching the birds. A cactus wren flew into Arvi, looked around, perched on the steering wheel, and then left in its own time. Hummingbirds and another little gray... Continue Reading →

The Roadtrek website (roadtrek.com) is back up and running. All the model info seems to be there. If you need a manual go download it now. Who knows if it will stay up for long.
