No time to sort pic's yet but I'm back in Tucson.
I'll just toss out this example of one of the many things that can just come out of nowhere at you.

Once we know everyone is back home safe I'll get some more up.

I think there is a piece of cast iron in my butt after this drive.

yeah ~ a graboid rock got after me on the first day out...


Then gremlin wire roasting. When I turned the lights on near Naschitti <yes-real place> the alternator started pegging the vlot meter and then it dropped to just under 12. I got home with dim lights and about 10 vlots on da AMC meter yeah...
