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 »

Making It Our Own

PTB has been pretty quiet which was nice as it gave us time to get some chores done around the new coach.  Slowly the new coach is becoming home. We’ve done several organizational projects like adding office organization trays to the big drawer in the entertainment center which helped immensely with being able to find things … Continue reading »

What a week!

On Friday 11/30 we hopped a Delta flight that took us to the freezing cold of Wisconsin so that we could stay with two of our grandchildren (Paityn and Cameron) while their parents flew off to the Dominican Republic to bask in the warmth.  See anything wrong with this picture??? Zack picked us up at … Continue reading »

Historic Castroville, TX

We took the day on Saturday (11/24) to go and explore Castroville, which is about 25 miles east of Hondo. Our first stop was at the Steinbach Haus Visitors Center which is in a building that was originally built in Alsace, France in the 1600s.  The home was dismantled (its built with pegs) in 1988 … Continue reading »
