Well we got away from Phoenix in reasonable time Friday morning, at 7:00 am and after a quick stop for gas in the seedy part of town, we were off on the road. The road for the first 5- 6 hours was desert and hot, ranging from 36 - 38.5 degrees. The topography was flat but very different than coming through Utah. Larger boulders.

One particularly grabbed our attention as a possible place to stop on the return leg and give Jambo a much needed wash. In fact we didn’t do so feeling that the locals might not approve, especially if they likely relied on that same water for drinking and washing. Piped water as we know it just ...
