Mesa for New Years

Published by at 7:53 pm under Retired 2006

We arrived in Mesa about 3 PM and found a place to park for the week. We are staying at Apache Wells RV Resort. You can see the exact location by clicking on the “Where are we?’ link to the right.

We had the truck and trailer washed in Willcox. They do a pretty good job and sure save my back! When hooked up we are 65 feet long and 13 feet high. That’s a lot of area to wash.

The weather was still cold and we even saw snow on the ground in Texas Canyon. I don’t remember ever seeing that before. Traffic got heavy before we hit Tucson and the interstate from Tucson to the Phoenix area is always very crowded. It was not a big problem, but it did require a lot of paying attention.

We always cause a commotion when we arrive in a new RV park. All the neighbors come out to see if I can really park this huge thing. Then they all want to talk about the truck, trailer, motorcycle and satellite system.  A couple guys even climbed up into the truck to look at the inside.  I enjoy answering their questions, but it does make setting things up take a little longer.

We finished setting up and then made a trip to Wal-mart to stock up on groceries. We called Mom and decided to go see her tomorrow instead of this evening. We splurged and had Western Bacon Cheeseburgers at Carl’s before coming home to rest up for the night. Traveling so far so fast has worn us both out.

    Welcome to the Valley of the Sun! (I’m sure the sun will seem good to you.)

    Are we all getting together while you are here? If not I would like to find a time for us to get together!
