Crack it Like it’s Hot

Last week was quiet week personally but we were quite busy with PTB stuff…we’re almost mid-way to this months sales goal…and we’re not even half way through the month!  Woohoo!  Now lets just hope we keep up that momentum. Michael continued working on his basement project (he’s got three now…so this will be an on-going … Continue reading »

Journey to the Father…of Arizona, that is

Monday, February 25th was moving day…but we only had 145 miles to travel so we took it pretty easy getting going.  As I was adding air to the hitch we were both standing there talking when someone came up behind us and asked if we were having problems. We turned to tell him, ‘No, just … Continue reading »

Snow in Southern Arizona? Yes!

We thought it was supposed to be warm in Arizona…not so much the last few days.   Lows in the 20s, highs in the 40s and SNOW!  We woke up Tuesday morning to a winter wonderland…we knew that snow had been predicted but I didn’t think it would actually happen. There was a couple of inches … Continue reading »

Tombstone, AZ in a Day

We pulled out of the Fortuna de Oro RV Park in Yuma on Monday 2/11 about 9:20 am….after messing with the hitch that did not want to close.  We have a Trailsaver TS3 Air Ride hitch and have had no problems with is over the last 7.5 years so this was unusual.  Michael got out … Continue reading »

Journey to the Center of the World!

Yuma is a produce Mecca!  Years ago peanuts were a big crop but since the 90s the peanut farms have gone from about 35 farms to just 4.  However, there’s a shop called The Peanut Patch that provides a small informational tour about peanut farming and we took advantage of that tour. The Peanut Patch … Continue reading »

Bright Spot in the Middle of the Desert

Our time in Gila Bend went fast, too fast.  The park turned out to be a really nice KOA…and we’re not fans of KOA but we’d recommend this place.  The rates are reasonable (unlike many KOAs) plus when the owner found out Michael was retired military he gave us a discount.  Any other KOA we’ve … Continue reading »

Plans Are Made to Be Changed…

Our original plan was to leave Deming on Wednesday but with the snow threat (that didn’t amount to anything) we stayed an extra day.  The ‘plan’ was to get a site at the FamCamp on Davis-Monthan Air Force Base for a couple of days.  However, when I called to see if they had any sites … Continue reading »

Fort Stockton, TX & Deming, NM

We finished up the last of Michael’s VA appointments on Friday morning.  By a fluke we found out he has a hernia.  An incisional epigastric hernia to be exact.  Caused by gall bladder surgery he had done in 2008.  It doesn’t really bother him but we’ll have it looked soon. We set sail about 8:30 … Continue reading »
