Dec 9, 2009 - Dry - And Not In A Good Way

We left the Grand Canyon and decided to change our itinerary and head south. Marty wasn’t feeling well and the motorhome had an intermittent electrical problem that operated the hydraulic system. This problem effected our leveling jacks and slide out rooms. With the motorhome and Marty both performing crankily….we needed warmer and dryer weather...FAST! Our first stop was Lake Pleasant Regional Park (a large fishing and boating lake) just north of Phoenix. The campground had great lake views, paved sites, water and electrical hook-ups for...
