Trip meter 141 miles
November 27, 2012
Today we uprooted from Ajo and rambled down highway 86 east toward Tucson. We stopped in the small town of Why, Arizona to take a picture of this cute sign:
80 or so miles from Ajo we got our first glimpse of Kitt Peak, and Joan snapped this photo from the windshield as we drove along. Kitt Peak is just right of the fog line on the road. Before the photo was down sized for the blog you could actually see the observatory
I am pleased to say that the dividers we put in our cabinets in Ajo, worked very well. When we arrived here in Tucson this evening- nothing tumbled out as we opened the cabinet door- better than that- in stayed where we put it! Progress!
I am also pleased that I am gaining a little more control over the page layout in this blog. The whole thing is done in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and to even get a paragraph break, one has to enter in the proper HTML symbol. My earlier posts were all run together, because I was seeing spaces and paragraphs in my draft and they did not stay that way when I hit the publish button to send it to the web.
The iPad that Joan and I purchased last June has been proving indispensible. The photos taken today were all taken with the iPad, and I am able to publish this blog tonight only because I can "tether" my laptop to the iPad to get onto the internet, as we often do when there is no wifi available at the park we stay in.
Good night all-
Jeff and Joan
