It was darned cold when we woke up at 7 a.m. yesterday morning, and when I poked a foot out from under the covers, all I really wanted to do was pull it back in, roll over and spoon Miss Terry, and sleep for another two or three hours! But alas, duty called. Once I […]

If there is one thing you can count on in northern Arizona in Spring, it is that it will be very windy. It sure has been, here in Williams. All night Thursday night, strong winds rocked our motorhome and rattled the slide room covers. We are sitting on a hill overlooking town, here at Canyon […]

As I reported in yesterday’s blog, firefighters were hoping the wind would hold off and not make battling the Eagle Rock forest fire that is burning northeast of Williams, Arizona any more difficult. But Friday evening, the wind began blowing and it still hasn’t stopped. Yesterday the winds were steady at 35 mph, with gusts […]

We pulled out of our RV site at the Show Low Elks campground just before 9:30 a.m. yesterday morning, stopped in the lodge’s large dirt parking lot long enough to hook up our Blue Ox tow bar to our Ford van, did a light check, and put our old hometown in our rear view mirror. […]
