Buckeye Az.,Old Friends and Geo Caching

Here we are in Buckeye. It was a nice little town. Now it is growing to fast to count the population. We were told 12,000 to 1 million by the year 2020.We see the "old town", and the new area with a new Wal-Mart and lots of new fast food places. When we arrived, we took a run to Wal-Mart. There were lots of people outside. There they were! The Budwieser wagon and the horses. Just like in those great commercials. Complete with the dog. Someone said they were in the area for the Super Bowl, and they stayed around for a few days. Of course we didn't have the camera. Another day, perhaps.
Last night we stopped in to see Jennifer and Doran Hunter. Jen grew up next door to us, and they have been here in Buckeye for about 3 years. They have 3 great dogs. Peanut , Bruno, and Babette. The boys are kinda fiesty, but the little girl keeps them in line. They out-weigh her by about 50 pounds each, but she's the boss. They are all so loving and compete for patting and attention. Great dogs. It was good to see them. It's nice to see someone from home when you're out on the road.
Today we were out geo caching. We didn't do to bad. We found 3. The first one was a hill climb. The second one was very easy. The third one wasn't so easy. The GPS had us going the wrong way. Tom went back to the car and started over. He ended up on the other side of the road, and there it was. Easy when you go in the right direction. We tried for another, but no luck on finding the right road. Maybe we'll try again.
Tomorrow we head out for the Gyspy Rally. Nick Russell, who writes the Gypsy Journal, gets folks together a couple times a year. Casa Grande Fair Grounds is the spot this time. I'm looking foward to it. Lot's to do, and great folks. The Escapees Class of 2007 will be there. Since we missed them in Quartzsite, we will be with them for this. We did meet some of them when we got to Q, but some of them had already left. Now we will be camped with them. Hopefully a good time coming up. Can't wait. Nothing like taking your home with you.
