Jan 29, 2013 - Basha's Art Gallery

The Basha family, owners of one of Arizona's largest grocery chains, opened an art gallery in 1992 at their corporate headquarters in Chandler. What an amazing collection. The gallery is open Monday through Friday, with a few exceptions, and is free to the public. When Eddie Basha's parents were starting the business and working long hours, Eddie was left in the care of his Aunt Zelma - an artist. When Eddie graduated from Stanford University (with a degree in History) he joined the family business, married, and started a family. Aunt...

Mar 13, 2010 - Casa Grande Ruins

Mar 13 Two parks are on the agenda today, Casa Grande Ruins NM and Hohokam Pima NM. Casa Grande Ruins The Great House raises four stories high and is 60 feet long, the walls face the four points of the compass and a circular hole in the upper west wall aligns with the setting sun at the summer solstice. Other openings align with the Sun and moon at specific times. Who were these people who studied the sky and built such large dwellings? The Hohokam were inhabitants here before 300 CE (Common Era).

Jan 29, 2010 - Chandler Casino Bus Trip

Today we got up really early for us as we had to be on the bus by 7 AM for the casino trip that Lee won. We parked the car in a Fry's (grocery store)parking lot and hopped on. We stopped to pick up several more people most of them from another campground in Welleton. It is about 20 miles from Yuma. After they got on the bus it livened up a lot. They kept passing around food and standing up and telling jokes and even did some singing. They were mostly Canadians and they kept us pretty much entertained both on the way over and back. When we...

Feb 17, 2008 - Lake Havasu City - Chandler (Phoenix)

Sadly, we have to depart Lake Havasu today; Evan is quite upset, because he has taken a liking to this town and the park we are in. We have had a great time and will most definitely return here! We retrace our steps towards Parker, drive along the lake with its beautiful colour. We are amazed how many RV's there are here now parked in the desert with ATV's and motorcycles running through the hills. The weather is getting warmer and more people come northward from the southern part of Arizona, when the weather gets too warm there. February...

Nov 22, 2007 - Thanksgiving in Chandler

We camped out at Usery Mountain off the 60 and Ellsworth for our long Thanksgiving week in our hometown of Chandler, AZ. The boys were suffering greatly from a lack of friends while on the road, so they really lived up while in town! We are blessed with such a wealth of wonderful friends that are a reflection of God's glory. May each and every one of you experience the holiness and glory of our Saviour this season. Signing off until January of 2008! The Erwin von Trapps....no we are not singing while on the road, it's just fun to say!

Oct 1, 2007 - Flagstaff to Chandler, AZ ~ 170 miles

As we headed south, the wind was now a head wind, but only about 10-15 MPH. The engine ran cool most of the way. From Flagstaff, we dropped almost 5,000 feet into the Verde Valley. However, we also had to climb back about 2,000 feet to get to the top of the mesa. The engine was able to push me along at 45 MPH going up the 4-5 mile grade with the temperature gauge almost to the red line. I am pleased to report that I passed all semis and one overheated RV going up that grade. I breathed a sigh of relief when I reached the top. The rest of...

May 27, 2007 - Boulder to Phoenix

May 18 - May 29. (We do not always have internet access, hence the delay in updates). We spent 5 days visiting with Fran, Ilyssa and Jake in Boulder. On Saturday Jake had his last soccer game of the season and we all went to watch. Monday afternoon we took a nice hike on a beautiful canyon trail, with Fran and Tom. On Tuesday we had the air conditioner installed so that we would be ready for the heat in Phoenix, but, we had to laugh because we ended up having to use the heater the next few nights, as the temperature dipped into the 30's at...
