You have a good trip planed.

My suggestion is to consider southern Utah on the way back. First it doesn't get much snow to begin with, if any and if there is any, in a couple of months it will be all gone. Going to southern Utah in the summer is to experience very hot temperatures.

You might want to see if you can pull up on this forum some pictures of Wazoo's Utah trip of maybe a year or two ago. It was a winter trip if I recall correctly.

Have a good trip.

Wow, great itinerary! Let me know when you get to San Diego, you can boondock in my driveway. I'm located right near the city, and have an extra bed and bath in case you want to air out your rig by then...

Too funny! but valuable info. So many things have gone wrong. The first week we were almost ready to go home and sell the AF Lol. Things are settling out now tho. I don't have time to post the entire list of of things that went wrong right now. But a few days ago we did take the jensen antenna off with one of those beautiful Mississippi old oak limbs We have yet to find a replacement. Of course it was pouring rain. We had to stuff the hole with plastic, dry the roof area all off and duck tape it.......forgot it at home. Today we were adding an elbow,and seal to the end of the drain hose and couldn't find the w-d 40 I brought......used petrolium jelly instead. Great advice tho. Thanks! After tomorrow we will have wifi instead of pay as u go so I'll post some updates of our missadventures. Nothing serious. All small but frequent

Don't miss Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico. Stay in RV park in White City. Very basic but very close. It is self guided. Not to be missed if you have not been there. Sooo Beautiful.

Be very selective about where you stay around Memphis. Except for sight seeing avoid downtown, south (near airport)and West Memphis. As of a year or so ago the area around Graceland could be sketchy as well. Germantown is probably OK. Alot of Walmarts in the south are not in very nice parts of town. Travel safe.

We left Memphis completely....actually ran lol
The rv park we left pointed us to the better walmart on the west side of town. There are actually 2 new shopping areas off of hiway 55. I think the second one is actually just inside Mississippi but there was no state sign that we past.


Silvergray. We have Carlsbad Caverns on our list of things to see.Dependant on weather when we get that way.

Thanks everyone for you well wishes.
