Oct 31, 2016 - Tonopah AZ, Sunset

We stopped at Saddleback Mountain RV Resort for two days. Tonopah is a blip on I-10 west of Pheonix. It is where the works lived while working on the Nuclear Power Plant 6 miles south of I-10. Saddleback Mountain RV Park was the main housing during the building process prior to being bought and turned into a RV Park.

Second Half of 2016

Oct 13, 2015 - A quick stop at Tonopah, AZ

Wayne asked me to write the log for the next few days, so here goes…… Sometimes when we travel in our RV the days are so exciting, filled with new things to see and experience…like yesterday. Other times, like today, it’s get up, get the RV ready to roll and drive all day. Luckily I was able to sit in the recliner and get a lot of work done for the magazine I’m writing for….funny to sit there watching the desert scenes go by while doing copy editing on my laptop. But we got to Tonopah, Arizona, where Wayne had earlier found an RV park. It...

Feb 24, 2014 - One Night Stand

Just to break up the trip from Lake Havasu to Tucson, we stopped over for the night at Tonopah's Saddle Mountain RV Park. It's not a bad park, big sites, no cable, no free wifi, not many off air TV stations; however, we can get on internet with our iphones, so no beef. We didn't even unhitch since we want to get away quickly tomorrow to get into Tucson early. We're planning on staying at Davis-Monthan AFB RV park and they don't take reservations. We enjoyed the great weather after pulling in by just kicking back in the recliners. We even...

Aug 2, 2013 - Arizona in August

I need to do a better job of trip planning. It always seems that I traveling through the desert in July or August. It seemed like everywhere we went last summer it was over 100. Today’s route took us along I10 and boy was it hot. I think it reached 110 late this afternoon. There’s an excessive heat warning for tonight as the temp isn’t supposed to go below 80. I have to thank my truck mechanic for fixing Winnie’s dash AC. As long as we were cruising, it was comfortable driving, much more so than last year. Winnie felt the heat though, every...

Dec 9, 2012 - Tonopah AZ - Saddle Mountain RV Park

Spent a bit of time in Tonopah, about 25 miles from Buckeye. Got to see Melissa and Michaela while we were in the area. Melissa was busy with company from Omaha, but we had dinner with Michaela a couple of times and got to meet Buster, her rescue puppy. While in the Buckeye area, we checked out the dog park in Goodyear for Bridget and looked up a Petsmart with doggy day camp. She really likes going to that. Trying to get familiar with what Goodyear has to offer so we'll know what's up when we get there in January.

Retired at Last!

Oct 16, 2012 - Tonopah, AZ

Tue, 16 Oct: We're back in Tonopah! We were in Tonopah, Nevada a bit over a week ago and now we're in Tonopah Arizona! Not a very common town name and to have two of them in adjacent states. Actually, Tonopah is derived from the Yavapai word Tú Nohwá, meaning "Hot Water Under a Bush" (aquifers?) The folks at 3T RV looked at all of our issues and finished up yesterday. We can't say we're "blown away" with the service we received as only about ¼ of the items on our list were fixed. They either couldn't duplicate our problem or didn't...

2012 Travels

Apr 9, 2012 - Tonapah, AZ

We left our campground about 9 and got here about 1 so it was about 4 hr trip. Its 91. Were only here 1 nite. The RV park is out in the middle of the desert just off hwy 10 but not close enough to hear the traffic. There is only a gas station or two here and a couple of stores otherwise not much. We'll mosey out here early tomorrow for our next stop. Were hearing that a storm is expected but we think were ok as to settle in at our next place for about 3 days so it should pass over us. Hey were trying our best to bring the sun home. MBK

Schrams on the road

Nov 25, 2011 - Stationary for Awhile

Some of you have made contact wondering where we are and what we are doing. All I can say is that since we left Camp Verde, we have been very busy but not as tourists. We moved from Camp Verde to Prescott Valley where we spent our time checking out the area as a potential living destination or at least home base. On November first we moved to a “snowbird” RV park that we visited in March of last year. It took a little longer to set up since we will be “wintering” here for probably 5 months. We then spent a couple days at the new home of our...

Nov 10, 2011 - Arizona

I woke up to another cold morning. Fortunately nothing froze overnight. My goal today was to drive across most of Arizona to spend the night in Quartzsite, AZ. Didn't make it. We only got as far as Tonopah, about 45 miles west of Phoenix. We hit Phoenix at the height of rush hour and there was about 15 or 20 miles of crawling in heavy traffic. Leaving Lordsburg this morning, I had a choice of staying on I10 or taking US 70 and US 60 to Phoenix and saving 50 or 60 miles. According to Google and the GPS both would take about the same amount...

2011 Triangle Tour

Mar 6, 2010 - From Carson City, Nevada to Tonopah, Arizona

We left Carson City, Nevada on Sunday 28 February 2010 heading to Rocklin, California on Hwy 80. Rocklin is just west of Sacramento. We spent the night in Camping World's parking lot. On Monday 01 March 2010 we had an appointment to get four new tires installed on our travel trailer. While waiting on Monday we got two important chores completed...mailing our tax information to our CPA and getting new passport photos to send in with our old soon-to-be expired passports. Next we found a small Italian restaurant a few blocks away from Camping...

Jan 20, 2010 - Tucson

Wednesday, January 20, 2010 Sheesh, who da thunk? Now I have to try to watch next Sunday to see if the Vikings get into the Super Bowl. We will be in Quartzsite so I don’t know if I will get tv so will have to hunt down someone with satellite tv. Monday morning we moved to Tucson to a county park CG on the west side of town that we stayed at last year a couple times. It is really nice as it is right in the desert and very peaceful, cept for the coyotes. They can really raise hell with all their yipping and carrying on. Since it was only 70...

Nov 11, 2009 - Week Twenty Three - UT and AZ

Monday - Nov 2 - Paulette had some fun and exercise this morning as she joined some of the camp locals in playing "Pickle Ball". What, you may ask, is pickle ball? Well, we're going to tell you. Think tennis, standard net, half sized hard court. Think pingpong, wooden paddles but oversized. Think wiffle ball, as in wiffle ball. Tennis rules, for the most part, with underhand serving to favor mature rotator cuffs. Anyway, Paulette can DO THIS GAME and threatens to form a fantasy pickleball league. It also made her realize that she really...
