May 15, 2010 - On our property in St. Johns
Gene and Cyndy went to St. Johns to spend some time on their property relaxing and finally getting their road sign in. We dug a hole, cemented the sign in and filled it over, so now we officially live off "Longo Lane". We attended the owners association meeting and met some of our neighbors, it was nice to finally meet some of them. The weather was nice, the hikes were fun and it was good to have some downtime.Jump to full entry

They did...Jump to full entry
Apr 19, 2008 - Flagstaff to St. Johns, AZ.
So on the way east from Flagstaff, we stopped and drove the 28 miles through the Petrified Forest National Park. Lots of trees laying over that look like someone came thru with a chain saw and then left them there for lots and lots of years. Anyway, they have a visitors center at the north and south end of the park. A volunteer was manning the desk at the north end. Hmmm, a potential volunteer job in the future!!! Very winds today as a front passes north of us. When they say it is windy out west, they mean it... blowing 35 mph, gusting to...Jump to full entry
