Saturday: (04/20) 30 degrees when we awoke today. We didn’t get an early start today. A walk of the campground, chat with our neighbors and showers meant we didn’t get on the road until near 10am. We took the Jeep out driving down to Mexican hat for a look. We drove some Jeep roads around […]

Thursday: (04/18) Up really early to prepare to leave. After showers we dashed to the RV dump to beat the line. It was 18 degrees when we were at the dump. It seemed to be stuck there. It’s amazing our shower drain trap wasn’t frozen up. All the water faucets were frozen in the park […]

Monday: (04/15) Sausage gravy over baked potatoes for breakfast. We had to move from our spot at Trailer Village, the RV park, over to the campground again, space 249 in Mather CG. Nice and sunny spot. Today, other than the move, was a relaxing day for me. It was a bit windy and cold all day. Tuna stuffed tomatoes for lunch. […]

Monday: (04/08) We awoke to rising winds. Winds seemed to be gusting to 45 mph occasionally so we decided to hit the road before we had breakfast. We only had to move 20-30 miles North above Sedona. About 9am we pulled in to the Pine Flat campground, into the campsite we selected yesterday. This campground is beside Oak […]
