Arizona Trip 6/4/117
I just made a drive to Surprise, Arizona to get some business done. Shockingly it was 109 degrees in a small town called Surprise. Its a city filled with golf carts and every major store has golf cart parking near the front entrance. I was amazed at how cheap gas is in Arizona. The cheapest I found was $2.19 / gallon. It seems us Californians pay an additional one dollar extra in taxes per gallon! The heat was unbearable for a guy who is used to California beach weather. I was able to get all my business done and enjoyed the short trip overall.
Above: Headed on the 10 Freeway to Arizona.
Above: Spotted a local junkyard with a Lear Jet Fuselage sitting on top of a transport truck. I will need to stop by one day and get a closer look!
Above: This was not the only truck of Humvees traveling through Arizona. I wonder how these military spec trucks differ from a civilian version?
Above: Getting closer and the temperature is rising the farther east I go. By the time I get to Surprise , the temperature peaks at 109 degrees!
Above: What kind of car is this? It was in pristine shape too. I wonder if the owner fitted air conditioning because it was 109 degrees!
Above: Not even kidding! The car registered 109 degrees today.
Above: Spotted this on the 10 freeway today. It looks to be a 1968 Mercedes 230 model. This was an educated guess from a local LA expert based on the side marker lamps and trim.
