OK, it seemed like a good idea at the time. My 15 year old son is a baseball nut and wanted to attend some San Diego Padres spring training games in the Phoenix, AZ area. in addition to baseball, it was a great excuse for a SSR road trip!

Unfortunately we were attacked by butterflys and other assorted bugs on the return trip, it was worse than I can ever remember. It was so bad that we had to stop and clean the windshield so we could continue driving. I couldn't wait to get home to clean her up.

By the way, I had more people make comments about my ride in Arizona, and that's saying something as I get comments all the time at home. From the ticket takers at the parking lots of the two ballparks we visited, to the border patrol agents at the check points, to the volunteers at the Challenger Memorial Space Center. What a great feeling!

Moving fast....

Well, it's hard to say. We were clipping along in triple digits (thank goodness for long, straight roads and radar detectors), but they appeared to be headed North. Watch out!

Good question!

On our way over to Phoenix we had the top down the entire way, ran into some bugs and butterflies, but not nearly as many as the return trip.

Lucky for us it was still quite cold and raining when we left Phoenix, so the top was up. I swear it was like we were under attack. Every few seconds another "thwack!" on the front or on the windshield.

Next year we find another route!

Monarch Butterflies

SSRBH

You ran into the migrating time for this particular butterfly, March. I learned the way you did some years back, except we were on our Harleys. We were on our way back from Laughlin, Nevada. It got so bad that a group of about twenty of us had to stop numerous times to clean our goggles and sunglasses. We all looked like mustard heads with broken wings. It took me three days to clean the wife and my bikes.

Lesson learned, DON'T CROSS THE CALIF. DESERT IN MARCH :glol :smash
