Apr 15, 2019 - Camp Verde

We arrived in Camp Verde, Arizona staying at a RV park on the Yavapai -Apache Nation reservation. One of the best parks that we have stayed. View of mountains as far as you can see. Right now the best part of this campground, is it has a hot tub...... After all the riding (5917 miles) so far and all the walking we have done....not a monument or a mountain have not seen....sitting my fat behind in a hot tub....IS THE BOMB!

Apr 4, 2019 - Col. & Mrs. Jackling visit us at Fort Verde

After we arrived at Ft. Verde, our friends Rose and Sam Jackling visited us from Broadalbin, NY. Of course their travel was typical of today’s airline experience and they arrived tired…however…that did not stop us from packing in a week of adventures. One day we traveled back to Tucson to see Jeff. Next was sight seeing locally including Montezuma’s Castle NP, Montezuma’s Well NP, and then Tuzigoot NM. The highlight for us was our visit to Sedona including the Chapel of the Holy Cross. By now everybody is exhausted, but Sam and I took a...

One Day @ a Time

Apr 1, 2019 - Fort Verde

Hello all, When we left you we were wrapping up in Tucson and enjoying a visit from our friends Jocelyn and Barney from Wilmington. On April Fools day we traveled to Fort Verde State Park about an hour north of Phoenix and about an hour south of Flagstaff. This is the State Park we visited about a year ago and Emily met the Park Ranger Sheila and they began talking about the possibility of “Work-Camping”. Fast forward one year and here we are signed up for volunteering for about 3 months for our room and board (a.k.a. in RV talk that means...

One Day @ a Time

Nov 13, 2018 - Bringing Bill home

As some of you may recall, we purchased a new-to-us Honda Goldwing motorcycle a couple months ago from a long-time friend in Birmingham, AL. Steve and I had been debating on what kind of toy we wanted for the last two years while we have been on the road. We thought for a while that we were going to get a couple 4-wheelers, then a 4-wheeler and a dirt bike, then a side-by-side off road vehicle like a Rzr, and then we thought we would get a CanAm Spyder. All of these discussions were based upon the idea that I would also be able to drive...

2018 Life in our RV

Nov 4, 2018 - Zane Grey RV Village

After we left Sedona on Halloween, we drove back to Camp Verde and reunited with Mo at the Zane Grey RV Village, stopping for a few groceries in town before heading out into the boonies. Actually, the RV park is about 8 miles outside of the small town of Camp Verde which sits 2 miles off of I-17. It seems like we are out in the boonies, but that's okay - I've gotten rather fond of being off the beaten path. It is quieter, the stars are brighter, the traffic is lighter and I can hear myself think without being distracted by sirens, car...

2018 Life in our RV

Oct 11, 2018 - Camp Verde AZ, Distant Drums RV Resort

On the morning of October 11, we headed south to Distant Drums RV Resort in Camp Verde AZ. We had some light rain as we departed Williams but that stopped when we were south of Flagstaff. Tops of the tall mountains in Flagstaff were white ….. As we continued south, the weather cleared nicely and we took a long break at one of the scenic overlooks. The views there and on the rest of the trek to camp verde were awesome. The road had some 7% down hill grades, but it was not a zig zag maze with hairpin turns. Still, we took it slow and arrived...

Apr 23, 2018 - Distant Drums RV Resort

Pulled into our next stop at noon. Very pleasant drive, great roads. Pulled up to the registration office and an outgoing rig was sitting there with a "mobile RV service" vehicle sitting next to him. Thank god. One of our air conditioners quit on us 3 days ago. The current temperature is 32°C or 92°F. It's a struggle keeping Da Bus cool with only one unit working. Anyway, he came over and checked things out, will order the parts tonight and be back on Wednesday to install the new fan capacitor and run capacitor. Hats off to Allen's Mobile...

Apr 5, 2018 - Thursday Camp Verde

We drove to Sedona today early so we could walk around Sedona before Candy took her Segway tour. Sedona reminds me of Gatlinburg, one street with bumper to bumper traffic and bunches of people walking around spending money. Since parking is non-existing in Sedona the Segway company will let you part in their lot to walk around. After our stroll around Sedona it was time for Candy’s Segway Tour. The guy leading the tour, Bear, got the folks ready to ride. Candy was the only one that had done Segway before so he spend some time showing the...

2018 Winter

Apr 4, 2018 - Wednesday Sedona

This was a day in hell. We thought we were taking a scenic tour of the Red Rocks of Sedona. This was a 2 hr. trip in an old Hummer that could jar you teeth loose. The driver VJ was very talkative about himself and little about the area. We traveled at a high speed to back country and then it was over all of the boulders and drop offs he could fine. The teenage kids in the back thought it was fun but the young children in the middle were crying because they were scared. It was a good thing we had seat belts on or someone could have been...

2018 Winter

Apr 3, 2018 - Tuesday, Camp Verde AZ

Moving day, we pulled out of Railside RV Park this morning about 10 am for our trip to Zane Gray RV Park in Camp Verde AZ. We needed to make a stop at the Camping World to return a heater we purchased that we were not happy with. The lady at the service counter asked if we were having satellite issues when she saw Candy walk in, told her no, so she was happy. Our drive east on I-40 to Flagstaff was nice with the sun shining and no wind. We took I-17 south which was a very interesting drive. We are coming from 7000 feet elevation down to...

2018 Winter

Apr 1, 2018 - Camp Verde, AZ

A shorter bump bumpy trip from Holbrook to Camp Verde via Flagstaff. We were hoping to get a spot in the RV park located in Sedona, but it was full, so we ended up about 25 minutes south at Distant Drums RV Park. This park was packed tight with RV's which made parking very difficult. Fortunately, there was a parking assistant that gave excellent directions into our space without incident. At this point, we were really thinking a bit smaller camper would have made life a little easier.

Mar 23, 2018 - Fort Verde

Fort Verde State Historic Park in the town of Camp Verde, Arizona is a small park that attempts to preserve parts of the Apache Wars-era fort as it appeared in the 1880s. The park was established in 1970 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places a year later. Settlers in the mid-19th century near the Verde River grew corn and other crops with the prospect of getting good prices from nearby Prescott, which was the territorial capital, and from nearby miners. The rapid increase in population for the mining economy disrupted...
