I'm here too, note the table behind us, getting ready for tomorrow...


We arrived at Archie's place yesterday in Golden Shores, Az about 4pm. It's about 10 miles from Needles, Ca on the Colorado River. It was a nice easy two hour trip here and we got all set up just in time for a mighty fine meal! Our good friend Jim Latta is here with his rig, Dan with his, as well as three other couples with their's. Including ours of course. We have power & water available & our satellite locked right on so we have our TV & Internet service as well. Life is good!

We've met some very nice folks since we arrived. Apparently there is a party here every year, but this is the first time we've attended. We can already see why everyone loves it so much! These guys love to cook and they prepare breakfast & dinner everyday! It's great, lol! Last night we enjoyed a tri-tip that they smoked all day. As well as bbq'd 4 inch thick pork chops that they eventually filleted to finish cooking a bit sooner. Green beans with bacon & onions and twice baked potatoes. Yummmy! Sausage, hash browns & eggs this morning. And smoked/bbq'd baby back ribs tonight. Oh my goodness, were they awesome! With dutch oven cooked potatoes, deviled eggs and the best carrot cake ever! Good job Sharon, the cake was terrific!

I think there are about 50 folks invited tomorrow for burgers, dogs & all the trimmings. It is in celebration of Archie's 77th birthday, such a great guy. We are so happy to be here to share in all the fun. The temperature has been great, although the wind comes and goes. None this morning but a bit this afternoon. Hopefully it will be nice and warm and wind free tomorrow. I know we'll have a great time no matter what. How could we not with this fun group???
