Connie locked and loaded for the reunion!
After Quartzsite we were Homeward Bound. Our first stop was Tucson where we stayed from the 21st to the 27th. We needed the RV serviced one more time to catch the things they were unable to get to before. While it was in service we went to visit Jim and Connie who were hosting a mini Alaskan Reunion. Several of the people on the Alaska trip winter in Arizona. Six couples of the 21 were able to attend. It was great to see everyone again and catch up on what we were all up to. Of course, we were the only couple who haven't been home yet.

Saturday and Sunday we were able to get together with all our Tucson friends.

Monday we stayed in Las Cruces. Tuesday we got to Fort Stockton. Wednesday we pulled into our driveway in Lago Vista at 7pm.

As we were planing our route we realized the freeze had burst a fitting to the Fridge, and water was pouring from under the Fridge.

The water was also streaming out of the side of the RV
