hey Dave & Lynn, thanks so much for this (one more) great trip report.......I remember your trip report of the "green Sonora desert" last year....a dream to visit the desert NOW... !!!!
Felix & fam.
Some would say your brilliant reports are the "next best thing" to being there. I'm beginning to think they are better than being there. To experience the trips through your eyes is a pleasure and a privilege.
You said a mouthfull there,,, at least We didn't have to build the road! That's nothing but work.

I don't know Mr. RRUGG, I've had a few complaints over my bad puns. But then again Mrs. Whazoo has had an earful all these years. I'm glad to be in good company with you, thanks mucho.
Hi Ya Disco, I hope things are well in Lawrenceville. Thanks for your time, it's always a pleasure to hear from you. You must have another trip report to hatch soon yes?
There you are Cal, my Arizona friend. Yes, it was off the Florence-Kelvin Hwy, the only highway I've ever been on that goes from asphalt to dirt. The road isn't marked so if you go be sure to get co-ords for the turn-off. I don't have them to give, we got lucky and made the correct choice of roads.
rehoppe, I've got the newest version of trunk monkey but I'll have to look up powder monkey. And yes, I know there are many others that hit the trails with campers, I just don't ever see them. Thanks for the reply.
Silver, Of course it was in jest, there is no other way. And looking closer at my night picture I first had to put on my good glasses, then get a magnifying glass before I zoomed in to see the satellite streak. What incredibly good vision! See Ya Silver.
Well Steve, since you ate all the bonbons I guess I have to make more. Thanks so much for the recipe, the chili was absolutely the best. And for the anniversary congrats, we're trying to catch up with you. Talk with you later Steve.
Hello Lots of Stuff, Hey look, I don't mind getting a lesson on shovels one bit. I knew it wasn't steam but shocks me to know it's electric. The whole system was fascinating to see.
Thanks for your response and glad to know you retired early from the hand shoveling bo-vine fruit.
Good afternoon Skip! An emergency back-up dog, I never thought of her that way. Yeah, Lil Anne could go for help if Bear broke down. Or maybe we could use her for traction if we got stuck in the mud. "Whazoo wingdinger", only you could come up with that Skip, I like it. Hoping you have a good spring, best to you and your family, Marley too.
Hey there Mr. Steve consulting, You noticed the "foothills" did you? I was hoping someone might. Thanks Steve, hope you get back home soon and get on with your next adventure. Bear says thank you too!!
Hi there Tiger, You know, your rig might do it with just a couple of inches of lift. But then there are the scratches involved and your camper is so nice. You would certainly not have a problem anywhere else on this trip. Thanks Tiger, be seein you!
Mr. Bob Mr. Bob! I have to agree with you on the saguaros. They are so varied in size and pose we have a blast checking them out as we motate along. Thank you so much Bob, you take care!
Howdy vik1, Thanks for your great reply. I'm glad you and your girlfriend love Bear. He is the most gentle and lovable dog we've ever had and enjoy him immensely. I hope you have a good day...
Thanks nycsteve, you're right, the scenery is really, really great all by itself. We never seem to get enough.
Now that's good fuelhauler, "Whaztastic"! And to think I was going to change my name a while back. I appreciate it.
Clarryhill, your replies are always better than I could hope for and you brighten my day as well. I always appreciate hearing from you and hope the dreary weather brakes for blue skies soon.
Hey there 67avion, with your incredible camper. And now I'm running out of words to reply to your extremely generous statements. Thank you!!!
Hello Bigfootchevy, Thanks for your note Paul. I hope ol man winter is going easy on you this year.
slacker cruster, I don't know about setting standards but I appreciate the sentiment. Yes, the night shot came out pretty well, I almost have the hang of it. Thank you Sir.
Felix!! Come back! Come back! We have some camping to do and I need you to take some good pictures for me. And look at the food we're starting to get the hang of. I hope your new endeavors go well for you Felix, tell Maria, Gerrit and Felecia we say hello. We'll hope for another meeting down a dirt road sometime.
Come on rehoppe, I know you've tossed a few rocks before. It's a 4wheel thing...
Hi Camper James, Thank you for the great reply. Three greats beat a full house any day at my place.
So, Wahzoo, is that rock wash the only actual road in, or are there other alternative routes in, given that there's an active railroad right of way in the area?

Dave...you are too funny...I knew you would work out a recipe for donuts in the D.O.
You are much ballzier (is that a wurd?) than I ...where you take that truck and TC is impressive...how do you talk the Mrs in to those trips?!
We are sitting up North (NH) right now...just had a great day skiing...forecast is for another Nor-incher tonight (we are experiencing a severe snow drought this winter)...your report motivates us to start planning a trip West again!
Glad to see all is well with the Whazoos...be cool,
p.s. please forward dutch oven donut recipe...the Scouts will love it!
