About Me

I purchased "Sadie''s House On Wheels "in late 2007 and loved traveling in a motor home so much that I went on the road full time in late 2008. I started writing this blog to help me remember all the wonder places I have been and it allows me to share those places with my family and friends. Summer of 2013 I decided to hang up the keys for a while and moved back into my stick house. After nearly two years, I am on the road again.

Moving on...

I decided to head back to Yuma and find some warm temperatures.  While the days at Safford were nice the evenings were cold and the weather forecasts for Willcox were not favorable.  Yuma was warm..almost hot..what a nice change. I spent the whole week in an RV resort with swimming pool, spa, water aerobics, get the picture.  I met a lot of great snowbirds from Canada which were about to head back to Canada.  By the time I left the park was starting to empty out.  Maybe that's why I got such a great rate.

One day I went to the air show.

This was the clown plane.  Parts kept flying off during the exhibition.  It was very, very windy so I didn't stay for the whole show.

Monday, I headed back to Reno.  The drive took two full days.  The wind was terrible.  I ended up stopping several times due to poor visibility.  I had intended to spend a day in Death Valley, but the wind was awful and forecasts of rain discouraged me.  The wildflowers were OK but not in full bloom yet. Since I returned I have encounter extremely high winds and cold snow.  Should have stayed in Yuma for another week.  Every year I tell myself I won't be here in March or April which are sloppy, slushy, muddy, months.

Next week I'll be busy helping my son  Jason and his wife Rhonda , get ready to move to Tennessee.  Another son just moved to Sierra Vista, Arizona and yet another son is getting ready to move to Virginia in late May.  Well, that will only leave my youngest son in the area up in Calpine ,California.  At least I'll have lots of places to travel and visit.  Calpine is beautiful in the summer but is not ideal this time of year nor in the winter...too much snow!!!
