U.S. Flag & the Van in Yuma, Arizona
The california leg of the Gun Show Loophole Tour has had great weather and good luck
Stopped at an Arizona rest area, Nice spot between I-10 and Yuma
Look at the size of this girder … thats going to be a BIG building (I think)
I found a closed restaurant and parked out front
I was able to keep the doors open facing the building. No one bothered me for a few hours while I uploaded a weeks worth of podcasts (3 gigs)
Also learned I need to find Wi-Fis, or get a better (unlimited) internet solution
Some homeless guy came along and used the water faucet on the building, so I filled up the dogs water jugs and poured some on the dog to cool him down
Tested out the new electrical system and the 12 volt laptop charger
Everything worked well for the entire LIVE show, and the dog could have cared less
I found this photo from a satellite view of the School Maintenance yard where the van sat for years.
The van is the 4th from the left in that front row of white vehicles
I had intended to bid on the one to the right of it (east) in this photo, the one with the roof ladder-rack. But it was in much worse shape, and had imediate issues to deal with like a busted muffler, and destroyed front seats. The partition had no door, so that was a no-go for me. plus it was just a 3/4 ton..
Ate dinner downtown Tucson, Parked near the city building
in a mirriored window in Tucson
