The Other Arizona

Three blog readers have asked me how we are tolerating staying in Terry’s sister’s fifth wheel trailer in the middle of an Arizona summer, and wondering if it is even safe to do so, given the limited insulation and barely adequate air conditioners that most RVs have. Down in the desert it would not be […]

We left Santa Fe RV Resort in Apache Junction, Arizona about 10 yesterday morning for the 144 mile trip to our old hometown of Show Low, in the White Mountains. But the difference between the two places would make you think you were in different parts of the country. We started out in the desert, […]

Our trip to the White Mountains got off to a frustrating start yesterday morning. We were up a little after 7 a.m. and on the road by 9 for what we expected to be just about a four-hour trip. But it didn’t turn out that way. From Apache Junction, the quickest route is to take […]

We woke up early yesterday morning to the delightful sense of our motorhome not rocking in the wind.

They say that company and fish start to smell after three days and it’s time to move on. I’m not sure if that applies when you’re staying in your RV and especially not when the weather is unsafe to travel, but we’ve been parked at my daughter Tiffany’s house in Taylor, Arizona for a week […]

There was nothing more we would’ve enjoyed than sleeping in yesterday morning, but we were up early so we could start getting ready for our road trip to Show Low, our old hometown. Anytime we have stayed put in one place for a couple of weeks, it takes a little bit of effort to get […]

Road Trip To Show Low

It had been way too long since we we had seen my daughter Tiffany and her family, so yesterday morning Terry and I were up bright and early for a road trip to our old hometown of Show Low, Arizona. We left the Verde Valley Thousand Trails preserve about 9:30 and followed State Route 260 […]

Yesterday morning bright and early I was parked at the Camping World in Mesa, Arizona letting their service people know that I was not pleased with their installation of our new tires in February, and that I wanted them to replace the valve stems and the valve stem extensions on both inner dual wheels. Ever […]
