It was a beautiful day today, sunny and about 70 degrees, so I drove around a little bit and took a few pictures of of the autumn colors that are starting to show up now in Denver.
I've been doing some straightening up and cleaning up in the Arctic Fox to get it ready for my winter trip to Arizona. Not that I couldn't straighten it up while I'm in Arizona its just that fixing things up and putting things away puts me in a traveling mood and makes me feel like I'm going on vacation.
I've always loved to travel and I've always enjoyed preparing for the trip. There's just something about getting ready for a trip that puts me in a good mood, or I should say a better mood because I'm always in a good mood. Sometimes it seems like the only time my old truck gets washed is right before I take a trip because I've always believed that a clean truck runs better, and gets better fuel mileage.
It's gonna take me a while to get to southern Arizona because I drive slow, don't drive very far in a day, and don't want to get there while it's still 100 degrees in the shade. I figure I'll spend some time in northern New Mexico and northern Arizona waiting for it to cool down in the desert areas. My New Mexico annual Park pass is still good so I'll be able to use the state parks there for some inexpensive or free boondocking, and nothing makes me happier than free boondocking
