We’re leaving Show Low this morning, and if all goes well, it should be a short driving day. We’re only going to Williams, a distance of about 175 miles. That’s an easy day of RV travel. Even with a stop at the Flying J in Winslow for fuel, we should only be on the road […]

Our mail came yesterday, and today will be our last day in Show Low. We have a few loose ends to wrap up today, like sending out the orders that came in yesterday’s mail, making a bank deposit, giving the motorhome a pre-trip inspection, and packing a few things away.

Yesterday we left Show Low Lake Campground and moved to the campground at the Elks lodge. Since we were only going about three miles, we didn’t bother hooking up the van to tow, Terry just drove it and followed me. The Elks lodge has fifteen full hookup 30/50 amp gravel sites in the pine trees, […]
