Got most of the packing done. Crammed everything into the Pilot, so no need to bring the trailer. I'll be headed out tomorrow morning. See you guys then!

We made it to Flagstaff. Got in about 1700 Tucuncari and St. George time, 1600 Flagstaff time. I guess AZ doesn't believe in daylight savings time, go figure.
Hans is tired still, trying to adjust to 8 hour time diff. My butt is tired from sitting in that damned truck and pretty well sore all over. Every year gets tougher it seems.
But we will head up to St. G in the morning, taking our time as we don't plan to stop at the field, just check in at the motel. Maybe whomever is there can join us for supper. Should be in by middle of the afternoon.

Brent, yeah, got tired of missing out on all the pre-event fun. Not so this year!

John, I should be in no later than 5pm St George time, possibly earlier since I'm not dragging a trailer this time. Would like to hook up with you guys for dinner.

AZ is smart, no messing with DST. Never have to worry about changing the clocks. Now if only the rest of the country would get on board!

Yeah, I agree. Changing is stupid, doesn't help farmers or school buses. So why do it?
Supper sounds great Pat. Jerry( justj) is going to join us too.

J and Hans, looks like your drive has been pretty nice with the weather. My first day out on my drive has been very strong winds and heavy rain showers. At least I only have to drive two days but I hope that the weather is better in St. George.

So it's been a few years since I've driven to Vegas from Phoenix. Looking at the map, it looks like they finally have the I-11 bypass around Boulder City open (between the dam and Vegas). Now I won't have to drive through Boulder City. Should take another 15 minutes off the drive time. And I-11 joins right up to I-515 which is the east Vegas bypass.

That makes it much easier Pat, BC can be a at times.

Jim,
We have been fighting wind the last two days, and I mean strong winds. Also had a bit of rain about mid morning. I'm sure Arizonians were thrilled.
I certainly hope the winds don't blow like this at St. G or nothing will be flying. But we did have very nice temps with the cloud cover, maybe topping out at 82 or so. very pleasant day except for the wind.

I just checked 10 day weather for St. G. They are under a Red Flag Warning until 0400 MDT Tuesday. High Wind Warning.
It also shows pretty good winds Wed & Thurs.
