Feb 14, 2017 - Blythe CA - The Cove RV Resort

Just had to take the new camper out for a test run before the start of Spring Training baseball, so we went to Blythe CA for a few days to see how it worked. Found a few more things to fix, but that’s to be expected when you get a brand new camper like this. Best part about this trip was meeting up with our friends Donna and Carl from Buckeye/Sundance. They had been in California and stopped at The Cove for the night on their way home. Had dinner together before they moved on to Buckeye the next morning.

Retired at Last!

Dec 2, 2015 - Done deal - Gone Riveted

Mesa Spirit RV Resort Mesa, AZ December 2, 2015 I was up early this morning and made myself an egg McMuffin. My first mission was to fill up with diesel fuel. We next went shopping at the local Camping World store before stopping back at the dealership. After meeting with the salesman we went to a local furniture store to pick out a dinning table. This was all part of our deal with the dealership. I also purchased a neat little combination stand, magazine rack. Returning to the RV Resort we loaded the furniture on board, hooked up and again...

Oct 25, 2015 - Blythe, CA

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN FOLLOWING THE JOURNAL FROM THE POINT THAT I STARTED EXPERIENCING ISSUES WITH PICTURE LOADING YOU CAN START BACK ON OCT. 5 iN MORGAN CITY. IT HAS TAKEN US A LONG TIME TO ONLY PARTIALLY RESOLVE THE PROBLEM. We are now in Blythe, CA. We drove a distance of about 270 miles. The weather was clear and we only experienced some wind for awhile. After getting settled in Elden noticed water all over the place under our rig. We had not hooked up the water so with further investigation we discovered that our jack had broken...

Jan 17, 2015 - Capistrano

We were packed up early and it couldn't have been easier to get out of San diego. We went down hwy 5 and got to San juan Capistrano at 9. It was a beautiful drive almost along the ocean. We went on the tour of the mission at Capistrano and it was very nice to see. It took a couple of hours and then we walked around the historical town area. We then took the scenic drive it Palm Springs. Driving around there was not that hard but there were so many people on the streets and we tried a few hotels but no vacancies so we headed to Blythe and...

Plans

Jan 16, 2015 - The 28th Annual Blue Grass Festival

We had perfect weather, heard excellent music and had fine people to share it with. There are two venues for the bands to play in. Opening ceremonies were at 9:45 each day with the music beginning at 10 and ending at 4. While all of them were good I have pictured four of our favorites. The Sonoran Dogs are seasoned veterans from Central California who play a collection of traditional blue grass standards, new-grass, Americana, and original compositions with a little improvisation thrown in. The Kathy Kallick Band players came from all over...

Jan 16, 2015 - Blythe, CA

The festival started on Friday and ended on Sunday. Susan missed Sunday afternoon as she drove home for the doctor appointment on Monday. The weather was great and the music was great. We had campfire each evening and even had a pot luck. I guess I didn't take enough pictures. I was too busy having fun.

Jan 15, 2015 - Blythe, California

1/15 – 1/18 Our caravan of two motorhomes (David, Dianne and us) left Casa Grande at 9:15am heading towards Blythe, California and a bluegrass festival. We were parked at the fairgrounds/race track by 3:00pm California time. One of the first things we did was get our viewing chairs into position; we were a little closer to the stage than our last time at Blythe. The music at this festival was quite good. The bands we heard were Blue Canyon Boys, The Lonesome River Band, Larry Efaw and the Bluegrass Mountaineers, The Sonoran Dogs,...

Jan 14, 2015 - Blythe, CA

I drove to Blythe for the bluegrass festival. Susan had to stay home for a doctors appointment but she drove over later and attended the festival. Before the festival I went on a tour of two power plants. The first one was solar, 100 acres of solar. It produced about 50 megawatts. Then I toured a natural gas power plant that puts out about 600 megawatts. Drove over on Monday, toured on Wednesday, Susan arrived on Thursday. On Sunday at noon Susan had to drive home again for another doctors appointment. (she has a narrowing of the throat and...

Nov 9, 2014 - We're in California!

Getting to Phoenix was a major step in our winter journey. We really wanted to get warm in a hurry and I think we accomplished that in spades. We decided to kick back and enjoy both having our extra space (having our slideouts working again) and the heat. Our day of no travelling gave us a chance to sleep in, play a round of golf and lounge by the pool. Since the resort was so large, we used our bikes to tow our golf pull carts to the course, something that any kid could do. To watch Mike weave down the road pedalling, huffing and...

Winter West

Sep 17, 2014 - The Road is Closed

From Williams we planned to go as far as Lake Havasu City, but since it was only noontime when we got that far we decided to go a little further. This was just going to be a stop as I didn’t want to drive all the way to Palm Springs, but we also wanted to keep ahead of the bad weather they were predicting for Arizona. So we headed on toward Blythe, crossing the Colorado River into California, until we come to an intersection and the road ahead of us is closed. Evidently when the last storm came through it damaged the road ahead of us and...

Sep 5, 2013 - Route 66, California, USA

This is the first picture that was taken from me, the same afternoon that I left California on my very first trip on Route 66 Toward New Mexico. It was a sunny and hot afternoon and I got off the car and my boyfriend took this picture of me. Shortly after the picture was taken, there was a sand storm! This was the first time in my life that I saw a sand storm. It was scary and fascinating at the same time. We drove through the sand storm and headed out way into Arizona, on historic Route 66. It was a wonderful day.

Apr 8, 2013 - Colorado River-Ehrenburg,AZ

Well, we are now at the Colorado River Oasis in Ehrenberg,AZ. We are parked overlooking the river. Julie is walking a little better now so we went into Quartzsite to look at the few remaining vendors while the guys were fishing. They caught a bunch of nice Sunfish so we had a yummy fish fry. Julie and I have been to the pool a few times. She is not able to go into the water yet but I went in and did my water exercise routine. One day we took a trip to the Cibola Wildlife refuge; a nice drive but disappointing as all the waterfowl had left...
