Scott’s Big Adventure, Day Eighteen: Sitting Around Chandler Vespa

I slept in late this morning because there was no need to get up early. The agenda for today was to get the Vespa serviced and back in top condition. I’ve traveled over 3000 miles since starting this trip, and it was time to get the oil changed and some other things. The local Vespa dealer didn’t open until 10am, so no need to get up at the crack of dawn. I ended up spending the better part of the day hanging around Chandler Vespa. Since I was an unscheduled job, they had to work me in whenever they could, so it took quite a bit of time. I finally got out of there late in the afternoon, but by then it was too late to continue the journey for the day, so I decided to bag it until tomorrow.

The plan for tomorrow is to head down to the Sonoran Desert National Monument for a look at the giant cactus, then head to the northwest for Kingman and Route 66. Since I’m several days behind schedule, I’m probably going to cut a few destinations from the trip. The first one to go will probably be Lake Havasu City, so no London Bridge.

I’m finding that I’m more and more tired as the Adventure continues, and its harder and harder to write these posts every night. I’m several days behind as it is. My son Erik wrote to ask if I had done any videos yet, but sadly no. They just take too long to put together. I’ll try to get caught up on the posts and the photos, and maybe I can finish 1 video to make my son happy. But right now, I can barely keep my eyes open.
