The Road To Bentonville...Day One

We hit the road early this morning because there was a lot of road ahead of us today.  After a brief stop at McDonalds we saw sunrise east of Kingman, AZ.  It was gorgeous.  

We stopped at a rest area outside of Holbrook to a much needed stretch.  Cassy climbed on the rocks, sniffed and explored...her favorit things to do.

 This time we were able to stop at the border and got the state border photos.  There are also some tourist attractions there as well with teepees, indians, dinosaurs and more.

Lunch was at the continental divide.  A couple of residents came out to check out the trailer. 


Timm and Scott did all the driving today.  We had to pay $4.25 a gallon for diesel...yikes. 
Our first for the night is Tucumcari, NM.  After 13-14 hours, the beds are comfy and the Pizza Hut was delicious.  Good night.

Heading to Bentonville

That's right, we're heading to Bentonville next week for the Sam's Club National BBQ Tour Finals!  It's been a blur of planning, activity, BBQ trailer improvements, truck maintainance, practice cooks and more.
The truck has had new rotors, calipers and bearing, new tires, and will head to the car wash this weekend, then the wing will go on top of the shell.   We've added a new shelf above the pit.  It's a great place for the thermometers, spray bottle, etc...keeping stuff of the shelf in front of the pit.
Timm brought home these cabinets you know what they are?  Can you guess?  They are fire extinguisher cabinets turned on their sides.  They've got a ton of them at a job site they're tossing away at work.  There is still room to store the ice chests and sit under them without Timm hitting his head.  Maybe eventually, we'll get the sinks placed in there too.
We should be getting our logo put on each side of the enclosed areas of the trailer.  That will look so awesome when it's on there.
