Clewett's 'RV'ing

May 20, 2016 - Camp Verde, AZ

Today was our day off so it was time to do the wash, etc. Richie & Kathy went to Zion & Bryce Canyon & will meet us in Los Vegas, NV in a few days. Bill & Charlie went in the hot tub & pool. Distant Drum RV park is one of my favorite campgrounds. It's close to everything & great as a home base. Our dashboard lights were staying on. Richie was determined he was going to fix it. After me having a few heart attacks he actually fixed the problem and he put all the wires back where they belong. An electrical guru. I didn't even know those wires...

May 19, 2016 - Jerome, AZ

Today we took a short ride to Jerome, AZ. A cute little town with it's very own Brothel which is now a store selling related specialty items and such. We also had to go to the hot pepper store. We ate at Grapes restaurant which was really good. After lunch we drove up the road to the town of Ghost Town. Population of 12. The owner said there might be a few more since some have kids. Just wondering how hard is it to keep track of the total population when it's around 12. He has been living there for 32 years and collects everything and I...

May 18, 2016 - Sedona

today we went downtown Sedona. We took the trolley tours. It was great. We visited the Chapel on the Hill among other points of interest. Very informative. We also ate lunch at the Cowboy Cafe. Back in the day John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Elvis ate there. Rachel Ray ate there & did her show from there. Bill ordered Rattle Snake sausage which we all tried. It tasted like Kielbasa. Ya just have to get over the fact that it's a snake. Yikes Bill also had a Buffalo burger & cactus fries.

May 16, 2016 - Camp Verde, AZ

Camped at Distant Drums RV Resort - We were here 10 years ago & it is still one of the best RV parks we have been to. We're very close to Sadona, Jerome, Cottonwood, Prescot and there is a Casino really close that has a free shuttle that picks us up at the campground & drops us off. Dinner at their buffet tonight. Great food 5/17 - Went to Montezuma's Castle to see the great cliff dwellings & then to Montezuma's Well to see the Pithouses where they lived before advancing to cliff dwellings.& where the Indians believed the messenger snakes...

Feb 23, 2016 - Camp Verde

Yesterday, we left the Grand Canyon and headed back down AZ-64, East on I-40, and the turned South on I-17. Two and a half hours and 137 miles and we landed in Camp Verde, about halfway between Flagstaff and Phoenix. We're in the Distant Drums RV Resort. This is a really nice little campground, owned and operated by The Yavapai-Apache Nation. We'll be here for two nights and then head further South to Casa Grande. While here, we took a quick ride over to the town of Jerome. This was once one of the wildest towns in the old wild west. The...

Apr 25, 2015 - Cliff Castle Casino, Camp Verde, AZ

Today was a catch-up kind of day...laundry, cleaning, haircut for Dan, etc...boring stuff. And the weather was strange all day. The sky would look dark and threatening for a while and I was sure we were going to get rained on or blown away, and the next minute the sun would be shining. We never got more than a sprinkle until later in the evening, but it made for some interesting photos of the sky throughout the day. There is a huge casino across the highway from the campground (Cliff Castle Casino), and since they gave us coupons at the...

2015 Southwest Trip

Apr 22, 2015 - Montezuma Castle, Camp Verde, AZ

Today we visited the Montezuma Castle National Monument. Southern Sinagua farmers built this five-story, 20-room cliff dwelling sometime between 1100 and 1300. It occupies a cliff recess 100 feet above the valley. Early American settlers marveled at the structure. They assumed that it was Aztec in origin, hence the name Montezuma Castle. Mind-boggling how they built these structures!

2015 Southwest Trip

Apr 15, 2015 - V-bar-v

After leaving the madness of sedona, we headed toward camp Verde, az. We had read about the Honanki ruins and rock art site at the v- bar-v ranch. We got there @12:30 and hiked into the site where a ranger explained about the solar clock on the petro panel. Very cool and within an hour you couldn't see it so we made it right on time. We camped south of the ranch on fs 618. Another free blm campsite!

Nov 16, 2014 - Heading South

Last night was crazy. The wind blew hard all night with Winnie rocking so much that Ringo kept jumping every time there was a gust. We even got a little hail or sleet. I woke up this morning to find that our 8'x8' rug outside the door had blown away. I walked around the campground to see if I could find it, but no luck. We left Kanab this morning and decided to head south on US 89 after looking at the weather to the east. It seems the wind that blew through southern Utah last night was over in New Mexico today. There was no way I wanted to...

2014 Cross Country 2

Oct 3, 2014 - Camp Verde AZ – Coconino National Forest – Clear Creek Campground

Spent the night in this small forest campground not too far from Phoenix before making our way into Buckeye. It was a relaxing day and Rog beat me at Mexican Train yet again. His strategies for winning that game really work. Even when I start out way ahead, he finds a way to come back and beat me! One of these days, I’ll get him back, though.

Retired at Last!

Sep 23, 2014 - Camp Verde, AZ Sept

Our trip down from Glendale, Utah was fine... a little hilly, but still OK... We crossed the Colorado River just below the Glen Canyon Dam. Then, south of Page, AZ, we had to take a detour south, as Hwy 89 had a land-slide several months ago that has not yet been fixed. We climbed nearly 2000 feet as we left Page, then back down before we neared Flagstaff... then the big hill... We climbed to just over 7000 feet and my engine temperature rose to the highest I'd ever seen, but fortunately, it kept doing what it was supposed to do and once we...
