It was definitely exciting, as you can see from the following pictures, getting a little snowy and then a lot snowy as we went along. At first it was just spitting rain, but we could see this really dark cloud.
Then the rain got heavier,,,,
Then it started to stick,,,,
By the time we saw this sign, it was old news,,,,
Then we really got into it for 40 miles on I-10 until we got to Tucson. Careful does it with that trailer back there pushing us. Saw at least 5 cars in the bushes. When the lines on the road begin to disappear, you know you are having fun....
Tucson on was no sweat, just occasional rain showers until we crossed into CA. Lots of mountains with snow all the way home.
Palm Springs area,,,,
On the Grapevine,,,,,
Home at last, and greeted by our faithful dog who watched tirelessly out the window for us!
In the end, we put 1941 miles on the Bronco, and only 205 miles on the T, since we got shortchanged a couple of T touring days. Cheapest gasoline was in Tucson at $2.09/gallon. Bronco took 172 gallons, the T took 16 gallons. 73 cars and 170 folks were listed in the Tour book, but we heard that as many as 40 folks in 20 cars cancelled because of the nasty weather forecasts. We think there were actually about 50 cars making the tours. It was definitely an adventure and I don't know about the rest of the folks but I still had fun.
