Phoenix Metro at Rush Hour

Metro at Rush Hour

Due to missing a turnoff when returning from Mesa, AZ, Damsel and I encountered the daily Phoenix Metro area rush hour traffic. Damsel snapped this photo as we crossed AZ State Route 51 in heavy traffic. Had I made the turnoff from Loop 202 to Loop 101 as originally planned, we could have saved a lot of time and aggravation rather than merging onto I-10 with everyone else.

Our purpose for visiting Camping World of Mesa started out to be a look and see of their diesel motorhomes, but it wound up with us making a commitment to purchase a new RV. We will post more about that next week when we take delivery.

Other than the messed up traffic, look at the beautiful, clear day the Valley was having. Click on the image to enlarge.

    SO TRUE Some times of day the highways here are no fit place for man nor beast. The biggest disadvantage of living at the center of the universe ( as my wife and I started to call the area after we moved here and were astonished at the goods and services manufactured here, and , well , yeah, Alice Cooper! )

    We would be more inclined to note Marty Robbins as an area native, but, yes, Phoenix has a lot of things going for it.

    I’ve got several Toyota friends who live in Mesa!

    Can’t wait to read about the new motorhome!
