The snowbird adventure of 2010 has begun

I had planned to leave for Yuma yesterday. But, while getting ready I checked the tire pressure on the trailer tires, the right rear tire was low on air (gauge showed only 15 lbs).

I I started up the air compressor and filled the tire after filling the tire, I noticed air leaking from the valve stem. After bending the stem air was leaking from the rubber stem, it was badly weather checked, I had no choice but to remove the tire and have the stem replaced, I removed all of the tires and took them to Big O tires and had new stems installed.

No need to have flats or torn up tires on a 2000 mile trip.

The trip was delayed one day...

It's Tuesday and I left a 9am and have made it to Albuquerque NM.

I received a couple calls from Dee and a friend asking about the weather, they had heard reports of a winter storm warning. In many places it was sunny But, very windy, going through Santa Fe there was about 4 inches of snow on the grass.

The roads were dry and at times wet , still very windy.

So, I am at the San Filipe Hollywood Casino, they have a very nice lot set up for RV'ers, with electrical hookups, ( for a $15.00 fee) very flat gravel, and a fuel station with non-tax fuel :)

Edit: I forgot to mention that this casino has free wifi and it works very good, using it to post the blog
