Reading RV park reviews for Arizona:
There are those that report the park had everything they wanted and loved the place but will not go back, because:
- There were too many people riding bicycles making it difficult to drive our golf cart.
- It was dusty (uhhh, it's in the desert?).
- No shade (uhhh, it's in the desert?).
- There was no grass (uhhh, it's in the desert?).
- There wasn't a pond (uhhh, it's in the desert?).
- We had to drive to the clubhouse because it was about 500 feet away and our golf cart cost too much to charge up. (But gas is cheap?)
- They had no recycling bins.
-They charged extra for me to plug in my hybrid.
- The neighbors had grandchildren stay over on weekends.
- (My favorite) It was more than 3 miles from the Walmart

Speaking of turning the fridge off. The office called me at 5:45 pm to tell me the power would be off from 8 am to 5 pm tomorrow. They apologized for the late notice.

They're running new power lines in the back area. It's nice to see a place run like this. They mow weekly, clean out fire pits and do a job of it. They're putting $ into the place and have a lot to work with. Just wish they'd put in some shade trees back here.

It's funny to hear the PA system fire up on Saturday and Sunday. "Good Morning Campers". Followed by the National Anthem and announcements throughout the day. Unless we drive up front we don't even know if there are any campers here. Best of both worlds. They do need another pool. The one they have fills up quickly with happy families!
Are they giving out free ice for the fridges and freezers?

It's still a messy job.... but at least it is done now for awhile until the next time... Bob fixed the gasket on the bottom of the door, so hopefully it will be a lot longer until the next time!

My guess is that the whole chicken weighs about 4-5 pounds and the cooked chicken weighs a pound-1.5 pound....

You could cook the chicken for free on the hood of my toad, just put a dish pan over it. Temps getting to hi 90's with humidity pushing he same numbers. Almost as hot as my smoker, and the humidity replaces the water pan to keep everything from drying out. Now if I could just figure out how to get the wood smoke I'd be in high cotton.

eazy oeazy fix

you have to have the engine idling
drill a hole through the hood of toad
place "smoker flavouring of choice on top of engine"
wait a few hours (days) until done
iff'n you need basting you could jury rig a secondary power steering pump and a few hoses to pick up and squirt the juices for you.
Of course the basting would be better after the third or fourth use.

Three miles is within Earlene's limit. Any further than that and we would have to boondock. So far we have never had to stay in Wally-world with the RV, but they have been available. Earlene's idea of roughing it is when there is no Walmart nearby.

p.s., A Super Walmart is better when it is close by.

Jake, come visit us on our trip up the West Coast. Right now, at 10:30 a.m. in San Luis Obispo it is 63˚ with 67% humidity. High today is expected to be 70˚. Come on over.

Have any of you discovered what a big pain in the butt running hidden wiring in your RV is yet?

Just ran all the 20-2 wiring for the additional solar panels so that all but the regulator is invisible inside the coach.

Its 5:30 somewhere so I just declared beer-o'clock in Cherry Creek.

Very close by when you're hungry, right Earlene?

We would love to, but have to stay here because of DW's mother's health. Can sneak away for a week or two, but that is about it right now. I have spent a bunch of time running up and down the LH coast. We lived in San Jose for 15 years. Enjoy your excursion, we plan on trying to get there next year.
