Currently in Arizona, mostly in an around Tucson till after American Thanksgiving. Doing a bit of final prep work before crossing into Mexico ... installing new fuel pump, finishing interior and exterior trim, off loading/storing some of the "too many heavy" things I won't need.
Still looking for a set of good front seats in ARIZONA. GREY LEATHER with the armrests and adjustable lumbar support would be perfect.
The AWD CLASS C MICRO MOTORHOME SAFARI van weighs in at 6500 lbs fully loaded, and about 6000 with minimal gear. At that 6500 lbs, pushing a 7' high by 7' wide box through the air, best mileage is at 55 mph, about 12.5 mpg. Not too bad for the "BLACK TORTOISE", which is carrying me and EVERYTHING I own inside the shell.
Picked up a motorcycle escort, Cynthia, riding her BMW GS650, who plans to accompany me through Mexico.
Life IS good,
And the WAYWARD WANDERER lifestyle is fantastic.
Serendipity surpruses await just around the next corner
( like the five massive ELK I nearly became intimate with goung over Wolf Creek Pass ... about 8000 ' elevation, snowing, just before dusk).
My brand new PREMIUM front brakes, Duratrac 235/15 tires, and longer range head lights prevented my needing the "Cow Catcher" in front, but it was close.
