Jan 12, 2008 - Yuma, Arizona

We are staying at one of the largest RV resorts in Yuma, Arizona. There are dozens of them in and around the city, all full of escapees from the cold north. You can tell the Canadians from the Americans, because the Canadians are running around in bathing suits while the rest of us are wearing jeans and sweatshirts. Temperatures range from the 30's or 40's at night to the 60's or 70's during the day. Some days it is very windy. This is typical winter weather in the desert.

Jan 8, 2008 - Still Yuma

Circumstances dictated that we stay in Yuma longer than planned. We had to get the windshield fixed and we wanted to see Vickie and Blair, who just came down to their place, and we wanted to get some eyeglasses and medications in Mexico. I didn’t plan on breaking a tooth. The windshield repair guys showed up on time at our RV space and went right to work. All I had to do was show them my insurance card and sign. Good as new. Time to go to Mexico! On a nice Yuma morning we picked up Vickie and Blair and headed for Algodones. Algodones is...

Dec 30, 2007 - Yuma

We drove through Quartzsite on the way and stopped to see a bunch of the stuff that is coming up in the annual shindig. Business seemed to be picking up. But for now we needed to head on to Yuma so we could get our motorhome windshield replaced. We had a rock chip that started cracking and just kept getting longer. J/Kat was drying moisture off the inside windshield and we think it got too hot and started cracking. Glad we don’t have to pay for it. Not even a deductible. It’s a big windshield! Yuma hasn’t changed much. Of course there are...

Dec 10, 2007 - Relaxing in Yuma

We left the state park in Parker Friday as we had reservations in Yuma for a week starting that day. It had been nice all week but a cold front had moved in and rain was predicted for our moving day but we found out that here that usually means they hope it rains. We never hit any. Yuma is about 130 miles south but we needed to make a stop in Quartzsite to have my satellite internet setup checked out. I hadn't been able to aim the satellite since we left Stanley and their main office is in Quartzite. In Boise, our neighbor Sue let us use...

Dec 8, 2007 - Yuma, Arizona

I finally made it Yuma Clint. Where are you? Come on down, the weather is fine. Actually it went down to 11 degrees last night. I had to put the furnace on for a few minutes this morning to take the chill off. The high today was only 18. It is really rough. I had a nice drive from Lake Havasu to Yuma. I really liked the area at the south end of the lake near the Parker Dam. There were jagged mountains and rock formations. In between them were patches of green with campgrounds and golf course and pretty blue rivers. South of Parker the...

Dec 7, 2007 - THRU NM to TUSCON & YUMA, AZ

We got underway from El Paso right after rush hour. Following the recommendation of Nancy our Texas Park Ranger, we took Route 28 instead of the Interstate. We quickly crossed into New Mexico. I was surprised to see cotton fields, but loved the pecan orchards. We stopped at Stahmanns, a pecan orchard and store. I purchased the tastiest and freshest shelled pecans. We roamed through Mesilla, NM. This is the town where Billy the Kid was caught and tried and sentenced to hang. He escaped on the way to his execution. We opted to bypass Los...

Dec 5, 2007 - women who rv

Friday, November 30, 2007 WOMEN RV'ERS This is my RV experiences that I thought you might enjoy reading about. To start off , my husband and I started Rving in 1998. We had always wanted to try desert camping but was alittle unsure about the process. I started looking on the internet and discovered that "dry camping" was available. It's also known as boondocking. Although we wasn't actually sure what was involved, we took off to Lake Havasu to find the BLM ( bureau of land management ) . Camping is allowed free for 2 weeks on and 2 weeks...

Nov 24, 2007 - Can't Get Enough Cactus

Saguaro National Park is broken into two districts, East and West, and this morning we wanted to see the eastern district before leaving Tucson. This district is located at the foot of the Rincon Mountains, and the views along the scenic drive were beautiful. The saguaros here were older than the ones we saw yesterday, and we couldn't resist stopping at almost every viewpoint to take a closer look. We had a long drive scheduled for today, since we wanted to make a detour to the south to see more cacti at the Organ Pipe Cactus National...

Nov 21, 2007 - Yuma, Arizona

It was an easy drive across the desert from Erhenberg to Yuma. We read that Yuma has a summer population of 30,000 during summer and that it increases to 95,000 in the wintertime. It seems strange that it is "winter" as the sun is shining, the flies are sticky and it's going to be 78 today. This is the 1st time ever I won't be cooking a Thanksgiving turkey. We will be going to the RV Parks's Thanksgiving Day potluck. They will cook and serve the turkeys and everyone else brings a dish to share. It will be fun to meet the other people and...

Nov 11, 2007 - Yuma, AZ

We had never been to Yuma, so we weren't too sure about what to expect. We had a nice campground, good weather, and a little time to kill before we had to be in Casa Grande. We found the area is known as the 'lettuce capital', and they do a lot of irrigation to achieve that title. The old Yuma Territorial Prison State Park -Park website- was top on our list. I had not expected too much from this, but was pleasantly surprised. There was an informative video in the museum, a ton of artifacts, a good chain of facts that explained what had...

Nov 3, 2007 - Wow- Year 3 starts in Yuma

I guess I have been trying to start another year kind of like when we started going south for the winter, so I guess this is it. We arrived here in Yuma on Dave's Birthday, Oct.14 and have been busy and enjoying family since. We moved over into town close to family and found a wonderful rv park that has quickly become a favorite with both of us. Great managers and wonderful owners plus a lot of friendly people are making our stay great. As a matter of fact, just before Dave left to go back to Minnesota for his annual deer hunting, we...
