After a year of dealing with CANCER treatment and making it into remission a new life has started for us.
As you will recall we bought a new smaller motor home last year in hopes of this day. 
We are on a three week trip from NV to AZ, NM, CO & back home. We are traveling with two other couples from our Good Sam group. On the schedule to see are the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert - Petrified Forest, Carlsbad Caverns, & a steam train trip in Durango, CO.

So to test us we have visited a Ford service center in Kingman, AZ to check out a check engine light, nothing found to stop our trip, we will follow up when we get home. Yes it is still on, but everything is running OK. Then as we pulled into Albuquerque, NM we blew a tire, the next day was Memorial Day with all tire stores closed we thought. We found a Firestone Tire Store open, bought 4 new rear tires, not my choice of tire, but no other choice unless we stay another day, and arrived very late in Carlsbad, NM to catch up with our travel companions. Despite these challenges we are having a great time and enjoying traveling with friends.
