While waiting in line to return to the US, we saw two people climb the fence and enter the US illegally.

Continuing east, we crossed into Arizona:

As we were driving through Yuma, we saw an RV dealer with a selection of truck campers.  We’ve talked about downsizing to a truck camper once the kids move out, but after looking at even the largest truck camper with two slides we decided they are still too small:

We also stopped for diesel and propane.  During our grocery stop at Walmart, we saw this PPC fly by:

We continued on to overnight on abandoned land next to the Ak-Chin airport near Maricopa, Arizona, where I hope to fly for a couple days.
