Don & Deb's 'Excel'-lent Adventure travel blog

Our rig at Navajo



When we talked about going south before going north (more info at the next entry), Don & good friend/fellow RVer, Tom, decided that Navajo State Park (on the Colorado side) would be a good destination for the newbies & experienced folks to meet at. Tom, Terry & Max (a Schnauzer & darn good traveler) won't be here until the 8th but we'll scout out the place ourselves for now.

This park really is beautiful! The San Juan River is practically at our doorstep & is visible from our windows. It's so true that you don't know what you are missing until you step out of your every day comfort zone & see what's out there. Now mind you, there was an incredible wind many days so we stayed inside a lot; in fact, we could watch the boats in the harbor tossing rather fiercely. The awning went out once but promptly went back in when the wind appeared to be reaching gale force. If you ask him, Don may have a story or two about saving the awning while wearing his boxers.

Since I barely had any experience with long term RVing/camping, I was pleasantly surprised to see the quality of the laundry facilities in the Rosa loop of the park. Because I have a lot of spasticity in my legs, I appreciated the separate sitting room that was available while waiting.

Mail? How do we get mail out here in the middle of nowhere? We had signed up with a mail forwarding service but hadn't put it to the test yet. there a post office around here? Alas, we found one in Arboles where we were instructed in the simplicity of the General Delivery method.

We are learning a lot but we're having fun doing it!
