We had an opportunity, this winter, to visit Slab City, CA.. We made a new friend while camping on the Mexican border winter 2012/13, who moved there last fall. He is able to get online at the internet cafe, not too far from where he has set up his living space, so we contacted him and made arrangements. The ride into the Slabs is

Traveling through Agri-wasteland between Tucson and Yuma is a challenge for me. Not only is it ugly, it stinks. So many nasty smells, mostly from animal waste. Chicken poop is the most challenging, while cow poop is the most abundant. Trucks hauling cows in front of us invade our airspace and we both scramble for the “inside” setting on the dash fan.

After a heartfelt goodbye to our new friends, T & D, we left Santa Fe yesterday afternoon. We were both sorry to leave, yet happy to be on the road again. Since our departure was much later in the day than we had planned, we decided to do some last minute errands and then spend the night at the Isleta Casino, just a few miles South of Albuquerque. The parking for trucks and RVs was quite a ways from the entrance, so we decided to park closer and then move the rig later. No competition for RV spots in colder climates this time of year.
