Sep 13, 2018 - Leg #34 Check Engine Light

/// Thursday - September 13, 2018 Yesterday was a frustrating day. Woke early this morning and we were hooked up and on the road shortly after 6:00 am. Our route today would be west on I-40 for approximately 15 miles and then south on Hwy 89 to Prescott. The road conditions today were rough. Traffic was light until we approached Prescott. My GPS gave some poor directions and after a couple of u-turns and turn arounds we finally arrived at our destination shortly after 8:00 am. We traveled 75 miles. Check-in was very simple and we were soon...

Feb 28, 2018 - Garrison

We have been listening to Prairie Home Companion on NPR since the mid 1970’s when it first began. This musical variety show reflected the midwestern sensibilities of its host and creator Garrison Keillor and touched the souls of many of us who live nowhere near the coasts. Over time it caught on nationwide and listeners were charmed by the folksy stories Garrison told to end to end the show about his fictional home town and its residents. While they were fictional characters, in Garrison’s hands they became as real as people we knew from...

Jan 6, 2018 - How Not to Start a Trip

January 5, 2018. Some trips are easier to start than others. This trip had a little trouble getting off the ground. But I finally got a solar panel working after a month of researching, installing a new plug in the van, buying the wrong panel, returning and re-researching, waiting for the right panel and all the adapters to arrive. It still didn’t work, but I finally found a solar expert who reversed my polarity, right in my driveway. Woo hoo! At last I could load up and be on the road the next day. All this rigamarole is necessary so I...

Jul 12, 2017 - Quartzsite then Prescott, AZ

Only spent one night in Q, altho it was certainly cooler that El Centro. It was a whoppin' 117 there. Arrived in Prescott. The campground was practically empty. Come to find out, this was the first day it was open after everyone had been evacuated because of a fire. We lucked out. We were so excited. The weather finally cooled down. REALLY!! It's in the 60's during the night and 80's - 90's during the day. When it gets too hot, we jump in the car and explore. We're enjoying the weather and the area so much, we're staying for a week. Don't...

Apr 13, 2017 - Not Again!

We got the truck back on schedule, but it sure took a bite out of the pocketbook! After a few more days in the campground, we headed to Prescott to visit good friends, Dan and Darlene. This time we had trouble with the truck overheating as we drove up the long hill out of Bullhead City. Luckily the highway crew was prepared for this; they had left gallon jugs of water alongside the road at various intervals going up the hill. Nevertheless, it was a long slow drive full of worry. At long last we made it to Prescott, where we found a really...

Fun between jobs

Mar 3, 2017 - Prescott

Mar 3, 2017 John has a doctors appointment in Wickenburg today so we are up early and set off around 7:15 a.m. It is an hours drive. After John’s appointment, we are off to Burger King for breakfast and then head for Prescott to see their property. That takes about 1.5 hours because we have a few stops to make, nature calls, and goodies at the bakery in Yarnell. We drive through downtown Prescott and stop at the courthouse, it is 102 years old and has a written history of Arizona on the walkway. The property is in a small town called...

Apr 8, 2015 - Prescott, AZ

4/8- 4/15/15 (one week) Drove 265 miles/6 hours to Prescott, AZ from Benson, AZ. Arrived at the Point of Rocks RV Park at 3 pm and settle in on site #12. We paid for 1 week since we couldn’t get into the Sedona campground. The showers are small but serviceable…one hook and a bench in the shower changing area. Nothing to write home about. 4/9/15 (Thursday) We took a drive into town and parked at the courthouse square. Walked over to the Prescott Theater and purchased tix for the Opry for 7 pm tonight. We took our walk around the courthouse...

Jan 25, 2015 - Kayaking Watson Lake - Prescott

Kayaking Watson Lake, Prescott I would have to say this is one of the prettiest places I’ve been in a kayak. The best way to describe this paddle is through pictures. I think I had googled Prescott one day and saw this Lake, so drove up there from Cottonwood. This was one of those locations where I could have easily taken a couple hundred pictures, as each little cove, each rock formation offered a new vista from a slightly different angle. In reality, this is a man-made reservoir created in the early 1900’s by the Chino Valley Irrigation...

Oct 4, 2014 - Cameron to Prescott, AZ

We had another beautiful travel day - & a short one at that. We left Cameron about 9:00 am & pulled into our rv spot here about 1:00 pm. Our drive took us from the desert to the mountain pines - back to the desert & back to the mountains. Coming south from Flagstaff we had one section of highway that was 18 miles of 6% downgrade (we were glad we were going down & not up!). But we enjoyed the sights the entire trip. Following the directions to our destination, we turned on Mt Vernon St - also called Senators Hwy. We've been told that the...

Mar 23, 2014 - Sharlot Hall Museum

While our main interest in this area is the red rock lands of Sedona, we thought we'd avoid the weekend crowds and and visit places lower on tourist radar like Prescott. This small town is located in a valley laced with streams. It's nice to see all the green vegetation. If you're going to visit Prescott, make sure you pronounce it "press-kit" or the locals will know you are from out of town. Prescott was the first capital of the Arizona Territory. During the Civil War Abraham Lincoln worried about cash flow and heard that there was gold in...

Jun 28, 2013 - Jerome to Prescott

Thur., June 27th – We took our time hooking up to move out of the Camp Verde area because we really didn’t have far to go. Just 20 miles up the road, we arrived at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood. The temps were expected to be triple digits for the next few days, so we spent a leisurely day strolling the Walmart and Home Depot in search of the foil Reflectix you use to cover the windows. We spent a couple hours measuring, cutting, and slapping that stuff against the glass windows in hopes of keeping the RV’s AC unit from going...
