Today was a pretty exciting day, because it was the very first out-of-the-city trip with the new camper...!

Granted, it was only up to Sun City and back, to grab a secondhand mattress that would soon become the camper bed. The coordinates for the photos are 33.77554,-112.236907; these photos were taken from the 303 loop, as the sun was setting over the Peoria Regional Preserve on the north side of the city. But..! It did give me a chance to break in the wheel bearings a little bit, get some highway driving under my belt, and put a few dozen miles on the trailer.

The sun sets on East Wing Mountain.

Total miles today: 60.6 miles.
Total miles logged so far: About 100.

Next up: A spontaneous journey north, for the first bona-fide road trip/camping excursion with the camper. I wonder where the road will take me next...?
