Jan 13, 2007 - Yuma AZ

We just finished our visit to Yuma and my Aunt Nancy. We thought we would find heat here, but I don't think it's warm anywhere this winter. At least it isn't snowing The Yuma area is designed to cater to RV's. Nancy lives in an area called the Foothills which has miles and miles of lots set up for RVers. The lots are sold wired and plumbed to support two RV's. You can build a house and have one RV or have two RV's on a site. Really cool. Also golf courses everywhere; I don't play but I seem to be in the minority. Another major draw is the...

Jan 9, 2007 - Rude Awakening!

It was 1:21 on the clock as I bolted up from a deep sleep, triggered by Jo running to the kitchen and the BEEEP BEEEP BEEEP sound of the fire alarm blasting in our ears. As soon as we determined there was no visible fire, Jo disconnected the alarm and we quizzically looked at each other. There was no visible fire, but a faint acrid smell hung in the confined air of the trailer. Thinking it might have an electrical source we began by inspecting all the appliances, then the water heater, space heaters and electronic devices. Eerie, but...

Jan 1, 2007 - 2007 starts in Yuma, AZ

As usual, we didn't wait up for the New Year. We went to bed after watching TV for a while. We figure the New Year has been coming around for a lot of years and doesn't need us to see that it happens. We are in Yuma at the SKP RV park. We have a great site and are enjoying the sun. Our days are made up of usual household chores, shopping at the Arizona Marketplace and trying to figure out if our computer will ever get fixed (it didn't - I am typing this on our new Toshiba). The computer died as we tried to set up the satellite dish back...

Nov 22, 2006 - RV Driving School in Yuma, Arizona

We just finished our two day RV driving school in Yuma, Arizona. We both considered it money well spent. Kevin feels more comfortable with turning and backing up; while I am just excited I finally got to do some driving. Our instructor, Jerry, in addition to doing a great job teaching us driving skills, also gave us some really helpful maintenance tips. After two days I am very comfortable driving, and Kevin and I agreed that I'll do part of each day's driving from now on, so I can keep practicing. In fact I drove part of the way back from...

May 29, 2006 - First Long Drive

It was hot and windy when we departed Beaudry RV Resort at 9:30 AM. We stopped at a Pilot station to fill up. I pulled into a pump between a couple of 18 wheelers, jumped out and went into the store. I told the lady behind the counter that I needed to fill up. She looked at me and said "Are you driving an RV?" I said yes and she proceeded to let me know that I had pulled into the wrong pumps and I should pull around to the other side of the station where the RV diesel pumps were located. After I had filled the tank, I decided that we needed...

Mar 26, 2006 - Yuma - March 26 - April 4 - Yuma Lakes RV Park Arizona and Felicity California

We stopped for in Yuma for a few days to enjoy the area and get our sofa reupholstered. We biked, visited the local flea market, and supported some of the local eateries. We stayed at Yuma Lakes RV Park. We had a nice site, access to the pool and we were able to wash our rig while at the park. We left Yuma Lakes RV Park and drove about ten miles west into California to stay at the Pilots Knob Long Term Visitors Area in California. Across the street from Pilots Knob is an interesting attraction called Felicity. Felicity is a rather unusual...

Mar 23, 2006 - Yucca Valley to Yuma, AZ

Thursday, March 23, 2006 We slept well and were awakened to the hoot of an owl as dawn was breaking. It turns out a great white owl has made its nest in a Joshua Tree not far from our campsite. We made an early departure and drove through Joshua Tree National Monument on our way south to Yuma, AZ. The contrast of snow-capped mountains surrounding the arid Yucca Valley desert was very picturesque in the early morning sun. Our route to Yuma took us past the Salton Sea. It is a former fresh water lake dried up over 500 years ago when the...

We made it to Yuma with no problems but the last couple days in Florence were different. Finally got some rain- over 2" where we were but after raining all day Saturday,waking up Sunday to sun, it sure was a surprise to look out our window to the mountains we 4 wheeled in and see snow. Yes SNOW... the news said up to 4' at higher elevations and even up by Phoenix in the superstitions they had a group of boyscouts lost in the snow overnight- all rescued ok. My pictures are from our rv park but our good friends Karen & Joe went out driving...

Mar 6, 2006 - Ogilby, California

3/6 - 3/11 Another 134 miles brought us to Ogilby, California. It was time for us to get one of our desert fixes. We enjoy sitting out in the desert, usually on BLM land, and just taking in the beauty of this part of the country (and of course we like the idea of free camping). Ogilby is within 15 miles of Yuma, Arizona and close to the border town of Algodones, Mexico. During our stay we: >enjoyed a couple of trips to Algodones where we ate shrimp and fish tacos and did a little bit of shopping. Joan got new eyeglasses and visited a...
