    Rear wheel bearings on the X3 grenaded and the dealers shop needed a few more days for the parts to arrive and there it sits.
    Underlubed when new, starting to see it trending among other X3 owners.
    After market warranty covering it.

    So, we were planing on a off road trip and the wife attending her nursing seminars on the same trip

    What the hey it’s a last minute problem so we took the RV anyway and camped in the hills above Phoenix.

    Little Pan camping area above New River off the I17 seemed a good choice and it’s working out good.
    Review sites say plenty of dispersed but the BLM has fenced off most the camp spots along the roads and you’ll have to squeeze into the staging area.

    The ATV rental places ghost camp their trailers and a few Temp/permanent camp have moved in so that makes it even tougher to find a spot.

    Headlights quit on the Dually so we dropped it off at the dealer and are using a free Malibu loaner. Going to be a few days to figure it out. It isn’t fuzes, switches nor bulbs.

    So drinking a few CLs while enjoying the AZ weather.

    a few days camping in the great outdoors sounds good to me, although it would be nice to have toys to play with.

    hope they get you sorted out and back out for more adventure.

    the AZ weather has been fantastic lately.

    Thats AJs back yard. Run up to Cleator or Crown King. You can do that in a loaner Malibu. Plus I know you like dive bars.

    Take Bumble Bee off the 17.
