Carpe's at FMCA rally parking

Thu, 02 March: Carpe moves again...

After more than five months in storage at our "home park" in Casa Grande, AZ today we started the engine and rolled our wheels. It felt good to hit the road again and we think the coach also enjoyed getting out.

We moved the coach from our site to the propane fill station to top off our internal tank. Then a "K" turn in front of the clubhouse as the Cooperative Board for some reason elected to enact a rule forbidding us from leaving the easy way so we had to do things the hard way.

Today's drive was a whopping 41 miles to the Rawhide Western Town and Event Center in Chandler. We'll be here for a week attending the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) convention. We volunteered to be parkers so we get in early for training and preparation. The run took us just shy of an hour and we were settled in by half past ten. Carpe achieved 6.9 mpg, which includes some generator run time.

Lunch at Costco and some shopping there and at a nearby Wally. We're back home now (1537) and will attend our first "official" function, a BBQ, at 1700. Tomorrow we'll get busy. Check back as we plan to append this post as the week progresses
