Jun 14, 2009 - Prescott, AZ... stopped to see a vandweller friend.
Met a new vandweller friend and kayaked Watson Lake with her. Pretty darned cool... lots of knooks and crannies through the red rocks. Lots of birds. Beautiful. I used to live in Prescott and go past this lake everytime I went to town. Always wanted to get out on the water and finally got to. Thanks to my kayaking buddy.Jump to full entry
Feb 3, 2009 - Brothers meet in Prescott.
It is a rear occasion when all three Turner brothers get together these days. Well the opportunity came around when Gale's wife Gerry came up with tickets for a Christmas present to AZ from Illinois for Gale. So since we were going to be in Southern California at the same time, we decided to make a side trip to Prescott for a reunion. We stayed at Desert Vista RV in Harcuvar, AZ while traveling up to Prescott for the 3 day get together. We had a great time visiting with brothers and wives. The guys did some running around downtown Prescott...Jump to full entry
Sep 21, 2008 - Little Flag Ranch, Prescott, AZ
Left early in the morning and drove about 3 hours thru to Little Flag Ranch, Prescott, AZ. It is wonderful and the views are breathtaking. The trip was fairly uneventful except for the construction and traffic in Albuquerqe. We arrived at the ranch ~noon and spent the afternoon getting setup and familiar with the ranch. Owner had all of us over for a real nice get together that evening and it is amazing what you can do with leftovers. We are 3 hours behind you east coast folks as AZ does not observe daylight savings time. It is all that we...Jump to full entry
Sep 17, 2008 - Prescott, Arizona.
Well as they say, that's that. We are back in Copper Canyon, better known as "the hole". We descend 500 or 600 feet after leaving hwy 89 on a 2 mile dirt road. Lots of tree cover and lots of critters in addition to Smokin Dave and Anna's 24 head of horses and 2 dogs. The dogs let everyone know when someone is driving down that dirt road. We will keep busy for a couple months here outside of Prescott. Thanks for traveling with us. We had fun.Jump to full entry
Jul 7, 2008 - Arts and Crafts Faire
Saturday July 5th- My daughter Jennifer's birthday. I called early in the morning to catch her in bed but she had been out to get her Sunday paper and was enjoying a cool California morning before setting out on a fun day with friends. Happy Birthday Jen. After a relaxing walk to get the paper with PeeWee I put the awning out and got my coffee to sit out in the cool morning and read the paper. The weather started to cloud up the western sky with huge thunder boomers about 10 am. We needed a few groceries and Judy wanted to find a new...Jump to full entry

Apr 13, 2008 - Departed Prescott for Page, AZ
We left Prescott today, Cyndy & Gene and Mike & Dian, heading north for Page, Arizona. Cyndy drove the truck and Gene drove the motorhome, lots of gas... We stopped in Flagstaff for lunch and continued on up the road. Page is on the western edge of Lake Powell in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area which is operated by the National Park Service (NPS). So the NPS is the reason for the trip, more volunteer work. When we arrived we parked the motorhome in a section of the park just into Utah and set up on a volunteer cement pad. The other...Jump to full entry
Mar 19, 2008 - Sniff, sniff
Well....looks like I'm a snot head. I picked up one of those "summer colds" that happens once in a while. Perhaps a cool night along the way, perhaps being around little germ carriers, who knows. My head is all plugged up and I can't breathe or rest. That figures, now that I have to actually be somewhere to do something, I'm not up to speed. I'm trying the Theraflu thing to patch me up. To add insult to injury, Angel isn't here with me right now so I can't do the big baby thingy. She is in Sedona right now with Greg, Beth and her family...Jump to full entry
Mar 13, 2008 - Prescott, Arizona
Hello to you! Well we got together enough fuel money to leave Vegas and headed east into Arizona to the Grand Canyon. On the way we crossed the Hoover Dam. Very spectacular so we decided to pull the Jeep into the dam carpark and take some dam photos. We even decided to do a dam tour! We paid our money and watched a dam movie before being herded into the dam elevator to travel 500ft down to the dam turbine hall. The tour was very interesting and worthwhile but the dam guide started to bore us with all his "dam" jokes! We finished the dam...Jump to full entry
