Moving Day: Willcox, AZ To Phoenix, AZ

Posted by on February 28, 2013

We only had 210 miles to travel today so we took it fairly easy.  We pulled out of the Ft. Willcox RV Park just before 10:00.  Our route took us along I-10 and it was interesting to see the difference in the rock formations and mountains along the road as they were quite different from what we had seen until this point.  We were surprised to see ‘green’ mountains with grass and trees on them…well…ok…..not trees…cactus…very large cactus.  Saguaro cactus…you know the big tall ones that look like they have arms?

We stopped for lunch at Kelly’s Kitchen and since it was so nice ate outside on the patio.  Our stop lasted about 45 minutes including time to deploy a few Munzee’s.  Before hitting the road again guess what we had to do…again?  Yep…put up the darn underbelly.  Now that we are planted for a month Michael will be able to figure get a permanent fix done with it.

We arrived at Desert Sands RV Park about 2:45 and after checking at the office we got settled into site 1 with no issues…other than a glass jar falling out of the cabinet and shattering into a gazillion pieces!  We have a view of a big old hill out the back window, a nice concrete patio and a grassy yard.  We are directly across from the pool (our daughter-in-law, Amanda, will be very happy about that as she and our son and grandson arrive on Saturday for a few days).

The park is older and on the smaller side.  It’s seems well cared for and the person at the office that checked us in was very friendly.  We’re here until March 28th and I think we’ll like it.  We have quite a few things planned to see and do (not the least of which is watching the Milwaukee Brewers play ball!) while we’re here.  But for now it’s time to relax.

When we got here we had mail waiting for us.  The woman who does our mail service in South Dakota will also register our vechicles (with a notarized power of attorney) for us so that we don’t have to go to South Dakota to get our license plates.   We started the process in January and it took a while for Bank of America to send her the ‘pink slips’ for each vehicle.  She completed the process a couple of weeks ago so we just had her send them her.  Now all we have to do is get our drivers licenses switched over in June when we pass through there.
