Rain and More Rain

OK, enough is enough. I think my tires are growing moss and I'm developing web feet.

I'm ready for a bit of hot and DRY weather.

My 5'er is sitting on gravel, but the gravel is over some fill dirt that was put in ahead of the gravel last fall. With all of this wet it has sunk into the gravel about 3 inches. I'm glad I have a 4x4 which will be on harder gravel so getting out should not be a problem.
Thinking about taking it to a campground this weekend with some friends so I may find out. I do have a small stock pile of gravel to fill in the holes the tires made after I move it so when I get back Sunday evening or Monday it will be all level again.
At least that is the plan.

Wow, it's not raining out here by Phoenix.
I'm actually thinking I should get some sunscreen.


Sorry about that. I just couldn't resist!

Don't say things like that. It is crowded enough in Az. in the winter.

And it just started raining again. 100% chance for the next 2 days. At least I am far enough south that it is rain and not ice and snow.
