On the corner in Winslow, Arizona!

Not to be out done by the the Holbrook PD, the Winslow PD stopped me! Second Stop, 18 hours. One, I was parked in a red Zone, Two, no license plate. (Uh...anyone see a fire-hydrant too?...image below) I asked to get the officers name for the record, but once again, a business card printed with my mission and a camera in hand...he let me go. In fact, he was kind enough to move his car so it wouldn't be in the picture. Arizona hospitality!

If you ever have the chance, Route 87 from Winslow to Payson is beautiful! Unfortunately, dumb me, forgot to take pictures. Just goes to show how much I enjoyed the drive!

It was clear and windy when I left this morning, 60 degrees. The wind did not subside all day. In fact, I would guess I hit wind gusts in the 40 mph range. Going across the desert, you could see dust devils (wind tornados).

In the Imperial Sand Dunes, there was blowing sand, just like a blizzard, only this takes paint off along with pitting the glass.

Arrived in San Diego at 8:30 PM. 3 1/2 days, 2560 miles.

Tomorrow, getting the ZO6 serviced and then heading for Los Angeles to be at LAX at 1:30pm. Alfredo (of Autos Express) will assure that the car is properly strapped and ready for shipment to Hawaii later that evening. We, will meet the plane at 6 am Thursday morning in Honolulu. Alfredo works with NIK Transport.

Waikiki Thursday!
