Our Fun in the Desert January-February 2017

We are Back to Blogging – it has been awhile!! Vicki writing this blog, maybe I can jump start Harry into writing some future blogs.

We are currently in Quartzsite, AZ for a bit of the winter enjoying a number of friends and the RV Show. Our biggest $ item was the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) for the RV and truck. Harry gathered some information in the Big Tent and talked to some RV’ers and we sat down to make a decision. I feel much safer in knowing what our tires are doing!!

TPMS System
Our set-up for almost 2 months
We have meant many friends we have acquired in our new lifestyle for Happy Hours – Dinner – Excursions etc. We have three groups to visit which keeps us busy: RV Dreamers Group – Amazon Texas Work Group – Lake Tahoe Camp Host Group and a mix of all groups. Unfortunately I missed one when I had to go to Phoenix for work.

 

We hiked the Palm Canyon trail in the KOFA (King of Arizona) National Wildlife Refuge. This is a great short trail with loose rocks and some steepness to view Palm Trees growing in a slot canyon. These are the only native palm trees in Arizona.
We had a great experience visiting Joshua Tree National Park. We enjoyed meeting a long lost cousin – Denise Thomas Davidson. What a trip as we talked and talked and hiked several trails, one of was a beautiful trail named Hidden Valley. Joshua Trees seemed to be everywhere with some wildflowers almost ready to bloom and Cholla Cactus. We enjoyed a picnic lunch among the park’s many rock formations. Harry enjoyed the day listening to our stories of getting to know one another as well as stories of family!! Much
and many surprises!! Pictures show this park with full justice. This trip really reminds me of all that’s great in Fulltime RVing where you reconnect with old friends and meet new friends and family members. This is what it’s all about as we hear from so many RV’ers!!   AND all the great places we get to visit.
I am trying to keep each blog entry short so I don’t bore everyone and gives us time to remember what we have done since May 2016. Our last weekend in Quartzsite we plan on visiting Yuma and going to Mexico on Saturday – Cibola National Wildlife Refuge (suggested by friends) on Sunday – need to plan my holiday on Monday!!!
We head to Phoenix for a month February 25th to take in some spring training games. Then we start heading east to Mexico, PA for Harry’s summer job.
