March 8, 2017 - Warm in Gila Bend AZ

Yesterday in Patagonia we experienced quite a temperature swing.  28 degrees at dawn and 78 degrees at 3 p.m.  Layers do work, but the hike we took up a canyon started out freezing despite that.

I sit in the low key but very pleasant college library here at Portales.  We stopped to use the Internet and to find out how we can see any Clovis artifacts despite the excavation site and museum being closed, closed, and closed.  We will probably get to see a few but only after lots of jawboning.

Day One.  Awoke to a cold gale which made last minute packing and assembling the somewhat frozen rig for take-off difficult.  We had to review procedures to make it all work but were very happy when slides went in smoothly. 

We kept forgetting things and made three trips back to the house before taking off down the mountain.  The wind slowed us down.  Cheaper gasoline was welcome in Virginia where we made a shopping stop at Camping World and Gander Mountain in Roanoke.
