Mar 20, 2014 - back to spring

We're easing our way back home very, very slowly. Although we only came about 100 miles, we drove up 2,000 feet and that made all the difference. July temperatures and cactus are left behind and pine trees and cottonwoods dominate the 20º cooler scenery. We've been to the Sedona area a number of times on day trips, but never had time to fully investigate the great scenery and history around here. A week stay should remedy that. We've left the spacious campsites of a state park and are close to neighbors in a private campground once again....

Nov 2, 2013 - Camp Verde, Arizona

We visited with Dave and Trish Wood in Camp Verde. We screwed up and forgot to take some pictures of them. They no longer travel in their HitchHiker due to health issues. We try to visit with them whenever we can. This time Dave introduced me to these Sony headphones that are wireless and I use them to hear the television without having it up loud. In fact it can be no volume and I here it just fine. We visited for about 3 days and had dinner with them each night. Dave is a great guy with a wonderful sense of humor.

Oct 26, 2013 - Camp Verde, Arizona

Depart: Apache Junction Arrive: Camp Verde Campground: Distant Drums Early on the road this morning and a short drive to Camp Verde. Good bye Saguaro Cactus, Palm Trees and warm days and evenings. We are on our way home. Once we were set up in our campsite we headed to Jerome, Arizona. Jerome in at 5,200 feet and was once a copper mining town. Apparently it was once known as the wickedest town in the west. Four disastrous fires destroyed large sections of the town during its early history. Jerome was once the fourth largest city in the...

Sep 30, 2013 - The End of September

Hello Family and Friends, Well here it is the end of September already, the time has really flown by, and we have had a busy month. When we arrived here on August 23rd I was wondering if we were going to have more time to spend than activities planned, but we have found that we may not have enough time to see all there is to see out here. But the beauty in that is that we can always come back and venture out even further than we have been. So now that we are here we have decided to just rest and relax until its time for Michael and...

Sep 2, 2013 - August Update

Ok now where did I leave off ? Oh yeah we were heading out of Eaton County Fairgrounds, we said our goodbyes to Dave and Toni, and our new acquaintances Dave and Barb Okeefe and headed out for Darlenes. The trip north was pretty uneventful and a route that I am very familiar with since Darlenes place is on the way to Mike and Cyd's place on the lake. we arrived in Harrison about 6pm, we took it pretty easy actually, anyway we unhooked the Jeep and backed into Darlenes driveway and leveled the coach out so it was comfortable and hooked up...

Jun 25, 2013 - Camp Verde

Tues., June 25th – I hate to keep referring to the weather, but on this trip, it seems to have great impact. We awoke to a chill in the air this morning and were glad we brought along our heavy comforter. Then we rolled out of the higher elevation of Flagstaff into Camp Verde just an hour away. Well…it hit 99◦ this afternoon! The forecast is calling for 111◦ in a couple of days. We set up in Distant Drums RV Resort, a very fancy, dancy RV destination. We spent a couple hours driving into the small city of Camp Verde. The area is very scenic...

Apr 29, 2013 - Montezuma's Castle

We drove to Montezuma's Castle National Monument, we stopped at the Casino near the entrance to Montezuma's Castle and had lunch. We played Wheel of Fortune prior to leaving and I won $30 and Reggi won $250. Montezuma's Castle is a wonderful specimen of a multi-story cliff dwelling. It has an active "Bee Cave" that is several 100 years.

Mar 19, 2013 - A Long Drive in the Desert

What a day this was!! We left Anthony at 8:05AM heading to a one night stay in Tucson. The distance fit our rule of four hour maximum travel which may be extended on rare occasions to five hours. After a time change since Arizona does not recognize daylight savings time, we arrived at Tucson and discovered that the exit from the interstate was closed due to road construction. A call to the campground seeking guidance on how to find the site, gave us a wonderful answering machine telling us that the entire staff was in the park somewhere and...

The truck has a cracked manifold, and cylinder problems with diesel getting into the oil. Repair amount? Quoted...about $8000.00. Pain and suffering..endless. He suggested we unload the truck. Great...so, its a repair job or a down payment....

Mar 14, 2013 - Sedona Part Deux

As I said yesterday, I will be posting more photos of the glorious Sedona red rocks. There were so many pictures that I wanted you to see most of what we saw, especially if you have never been to Sedona. I hope you enjoy my photos. Enjoy the photos, my interpretation of the beauty of the land that God smiled upon. Today was the birthday of my long time, sister-girl friend. Love ya, Lois and Happy Birthday.

Mar 13, 2013 - Sedona, Arizona

We had such a long day yesterday that I was too pooped to make an entry in the journal. Sorry. But, the great thing was that we went to Sedona. Oh, my gosh, FANTASTIC, BEAUTIFUL, AWESOME, JAW DROPPING AND AMAZING! If you have never been to Sedona it is definitely a place that should be on everyone’s bucket list. As you look at the amazing mountains you cannot help but thank God for making them and letting you feast your eyes upon such majesty. We arrived in the early afternoon and I must say, John and I said over and over…”OMG look at...
