Feb 5, 2012 - The last week at Eden Park

SUNDAY: Up early and got ready and went up the hill to church. It was the 5th Sunday of the month so the Pastor had the day off and the service was all music. Some special music and some hymns chosen by the congregation. We came home and were changed and packed up in about 1 ½ hours and on the road. We got to the lot and after unloading the pickup of fresh food and clothes, we started packing stuff from the sheds. I scrubbed the floor in my shed and replaced the tile that was damaged when we moved the fridge out. I also found a few other...

Oct 30, 2011 - We own a house!

Thursday morning about 10 we took off east. We pulled the Rhino trailer with the Rhino and the burn barrel on it. The little truck did pretty well but Ron had to shift down on the hill to Salome. But after that it is flat even tho it goes up a bit. We got to North Ranch about 11 and backed into D & S's lot. Bob from across the street helped us take the stuff off the trailer and we parked it behind the shed. Then we left the trailer there for the day and headed to Wickenburg. We were a bit early for the signing so we stopped at Denny's for...

Oct 27, 2011 - Things are happening

I'm posting this on Wednesday evening as I don't think I will have time in the morning. We got a call from our Realtor today asking if we could come sign papers on Thursday - of course we said yes. So tomorrow morning we will be headed to Wickenburg in the little pick-up with the Rhino in tow. We will leave the Rhino and the fireplace at some friend's house and bring the trailer and a two-wheeled dolly back with us. Plus some groceries. Then early next week we will make the parade of two trailers, two pickups and a motorhome for our first...

Oct 23, 2011 - Still packing

I'm down to the dribbles and drags of packing the 5th wheel. I had run out of boxes and was waiting to go pick some up at the hardware store (they had promised to save some) on Saturday. I was also going to have a massage to treat myself. Well, the hardware store didn't get their shipment so I only got one box there. But I hit a bonanza at the Salome Shopping Center (a gas station with a grocery store with very overprices merchandise). The lady told me to go around back. It looks like they just throw the boxes out the back door and there...

Oct 20, 2011 - Trimming and packing

This week has been filled with chores - and it has been hot. So we work early in the morning and then hit the AC in the MH during most of the day and work some more in the evening. Besides all the usual trimming and re-doing of plants, Ron has been working on the drip system. Some of the emitters got clogged up during the summer so he has been replacing them or cleaning them out. Most of the plants came thru the heat OK. I lost some of the ground cover around the palm tree - but I seem to always lose that on the south side where the sun...

Oct 15, 2011 - The Announcement

I'm sorry that I haven't kept up with the blog - but we have been busy little bees. The announcement is that while we were in Congress, AZ, at North Ranch - we bought a house. So now we have been busy getting our ducks in a row to 1.) pay for it and 2.) Figure out what to take from our Eden Park lot to North Ranch. AND ... if that weren't enough - in between times our daughter from MI visited us and we sold the big Dodge truck. So - the house. Back when we attended the Woodcarver's week at NR, I saw this house and really liked it. It was...

5th Wheel - FOR SALE

Well, we are not starting on the road today. Yesterday we had wind advisories out and even sitting still we were Rockin and Rollin. We also did not get the lot sprayed with weed killer yesterday to have to wait until until the calm of this morning to do that. We WILL get on the road. Maybe tomorrow.

Summer 2011 Travels

May 16, 2011 - Still packing up

NOTHING exciting here. Moving stuff from one place to another. Cleaning the area left behind. Securing stuff for summer. BORING!!! This is the last entry for this chapter. Thursday we start on our summer travels. That's because Wednesday is garbage day. We will have everything packed by Tues night. Wed. we go to the transfer stations with all the garbage and then scrub out the garbage cans and tall waste baskets. They then get filled with water in the 5th wheel. 30 gallon can in the shower and 5 gallon cans in the kitchen sink. Pink anti...

May 12, 2011 - If you can't find it - make it.

Have you ever wanted a little container but couldn't find anything the right size? Me too. Especially in the cabinet over the sink in the bathroom. I can't fasten this one shut as we travel down the road and some of the little stuff jiggles out and falls in the sink. I have lost more than one blush compact that way. (Its hard to put blush on when it is in tiny pieces.) An article in a recent Escapees magazine reminded me that I can make my own containers out of plastic canvas. It is inexpensive and quickly made. It can be any size and I can...

May 8, 2011 - Change of plans

I didn't get any clothes at the thrift store – but I did hit a sale at WallyWorld and got two pair of shorts and a tank top. So I am set for the summer. We also got a tree stake so the Desert Willow is now vertical again. And picked up a few groceries and got the 5th wheel insured. BUT - - - We have decided to stay on the lot for another week and not leave until the 20th. I have a lot of stuff to do outside and it has just been too darn hot out to work outside. The coming week should be cooler so I will use that time to get moving. I did...

May 5, 2011 - Getting ready for the road

Well, I called the truck salesman and he said he would call back in 10 minutes. That was Monday and today is Thursday so I guess they don't want the truck. Hate people who don't call when they say they will. Packed up Tuesday morning and headed back up 95. I drove the MH with Ron in the Dodge. I even made the left turn onto 32nd with no problems. The plan was for me to drive to the Stone Cabin which we always feel is about ½ way. About 15 miles south of the Stone Cabin the wind really picked up from the east. I just slowed it down a bit and...
