Default An Adventurous Sunday

I know it's short notice, but wife and I are feeling particularly brave today. We thought we would take a drive to Tortilla Flat. We are going to check out the new pavement. If anyone is interested on such short notice, 12:00 at the Chevron at US60 and Idaho Rd.

Dan, we’ll see you there. Was going to ask if anyone had checked out the new paving job!

Fut da wuk. I'll be there, but if the pavement is still crappy, I might be turning around. Don't need my teeth rattled that much.

The road is still being worked on but not on the weekends. The new paving is completed to about 10 miles south of Tortilla Flats, which was the worst part. Would have been a fun ride except for traffic in front of me that believed the 15MPH speed limit "suggestion".

BTW, did not see a single wild cat, coyote, dog or deer, so didn't need to run up the side of a mountain.

Beautiful day for a little ride!

I can understand all your excitement. I remember while stationed in AZ how the roads were and how the AZ Road Dept workers used to import Potholes from other States.

That's because you were sitting in your car and wondering what the heck happened. Karl was not with you so how can this be?

SOME people had a bit too much fun on the way from Tortilla Flats. Check AZ Cobras on FB.

Well we have an abundance of pot holes here and would be more than happy to have them imported to your area. We have so many that people try to drive in the pot holes and avoid the little pavement that is left as it is rougher than the pot holes.

Here is the photo evidence for all you non-facebook folk.. The car before it was hauled out, my scalp after it was stapled and the car we looked at this morning. To add to the earlier post, the radiator is squashed on the bottom and will likely need replacing. Hawes is going to love me..
