Nov 13, 2013 - Parker AZ, and RC flying

11-13-13 Parker and RC flying Got up and out at zero-dark thirty. That’s 5AM here in Lake Havasu. I tried getting up without waking Julie but did not succeed. On my way quietly out the door I heard her say, "You know it’s 5AM, right?” Today I finally appreciated the lack of street lights in this town. You can see every star in the sky with stunning clarity, right in the middle of town! The best part is, you can stare at the sky as long as you like……..without freezing to death! The same group of guys were gathered outside the door at 5:30AM...

Nov 13, 2012 - Buckskin State Park, Arizona - site#51

It was a wonderful day today. The sun was shining... blue sky and best of all.... no wind. Yeah! We spent the day sitting in the sun, reading our books and playing with Katie. Jazz loves it here too. Basically we did nothing. Oh.. that's not true. Randy walked up the hill and took some photos of the campground. Dave and Audry from Armstrong that we met at Avi Casino drove through, saw our trailer and stopped by for a visit. Nice people. So Buckskin State Park is on the Arizona side of the Colorado River. On the other side of the river is...

Nov 12, 2012 - Leaving Avi Casino in Nevada to Buckskin State Park, Arizona

Today at 9:15, we left Avi Casino in Nevada and 2 minutes later, we drove across the bridge to Bullhead city, Arizona. There it was 10:15am. That was the fastest hour ever. It was very windy until we reached Lake Havasu. We drove Hwy95 south through Needles, then Hwy 40 east and then Exit 9 back onto Hwy95 south. In that short 40 minutes of driving, we drove from Nevada to Arizona to California and back into Arizona. It's been a funny morning. It took 1 hour to get to Lake Havasu, where we stopped at Cowboy RV sales and looked at some 5th...

Nov 4, 2012 - Family Time In Parker

I had forgotten to fill the truck up with diesel when we left Lake Havasu but no worry, it was just a 35 mile drive to our next stop, Parker, Arizona. We're here to visit my big brother Dennis and his wife Jeanie who are here for the winter. They stay at La Paz County Park and we got a nice spot there which included a covered cabana that I squeezed the RV between. The big draw here is the Colorado River and the park is right on it. It's a playground not only for winter campers, but year round boaters coming from California. (The Colorado...

May I start by saying Happy Birthday Mark! He's over in Apache Junction celebrating a birthday leading up to the big one...just a couple of years behind his big brother Bruce.

Most of the the people here are golfers because of the huge golf course which is on the property, golf carts and golfers everywhere. All around us there are huge fields of celery, lettuce, onions and alfalfa. Chuck and Maureen Dearden are...

Another beautiful day dawns along the Colorado River! I washed windows in the 5th wheel yesterday so we can actually see the great outdoors without peering through dust and water spots this morning!
