Rocking And Rolling

The wind was averaging 40 – 45 miles per hour yesterday here in the White Mountains of Arizona, and at midday two gusts were recorded at 60 miles per hour. We’re parked next to my daughter’s house and the back half of the Winnebago is sheltered by the building but we’re still feeling the effects. […]

A Tough Little Girl

It sure is nicer here in the White Mountains, where daytime temperatures are in the upper 70s and overnight lows in the mid-40s than down in the desert, where it’s over 100 degrees. What a difference an extra 4500 feet in elevation makes! We spent yesterday morning relaxing after the difficult day before, reading e-mail […]

Driving a motorhome in the mountains of the western United States is not for the faint of heart, but if you take your time and use common sense, the ride is safe and the view is fantastic. We left Voyager RV Resort in Tucson yesterday morning, made a quick stop for fuel, and were rolling […]

Last Day In Tucson?

If all goes according to plan, this will be our last day in Tucson. I have an appointment with my primary care provider at the VA hospital and hopefully will get a couple of issues resolved. Or at least get appointments set up to address them when we return in November. While I’ve been very […]

Every year thousands of RVers go to Quartzsite, Arizona to shop the flea markets and RV show, hang out with their friends, and just enjoy the sunshine. And unfortunately, every year a few lose pets to coyotes and other wild animals. One couple I know was complaining recently that for the second year in a […]

We only have a few more days left here in Apache Junction. Next Wednesday we’ll leave for Tucson, where we have medical appointments scheduled and family members to spend time with. We’re not sure how long we’ll be there, at least two weeks and maybe longer, depending on how soon all of the medical stuff […]

I was the youngest of my parents’ eight children and I am the only one still alive. Over time I had lost touch with my brother Jack’s sons and daughter, who all live here in Florida. When I got into genealogical research a few years ago, I managed to reconnect with them, and the next […]

Rally Day One

Yesterday was easier on the parking crew than Sunday, when we parked 129 RVs. I don’t think we parked more than a dozen or so more rigs. Actually, I didn’t park any myself, the guys greeted new arrivals out front as they trickled in, and Greg pretty much led them all in and got them […]

We were up and out the door early yesterday morning, headed for Home Depot for more parts for the bathroom faucet project. I’m not sure why I was up so early, since Miss Terry and Greg were the ones working on the faucet. Sometimes I think they drag me along just for ballast. As I […]
