Last time I went a couple of days without posting I received an e-mail from a Cousin of mine who is following my ‘journey’ daily.
The Subject Title was “Sleepless Night Denise”:
“Denise, I didn't sleep too good last night - I went to your blog and no message for 2 days...........Jesus where is she? I was up at 7:00 - big dash to the computer. Thanks be the Jesus she's o.k. But when I read following a trucker....... 15 sex offenders........ I nearly had a heart attack.”
Now she has my cell # and I assured her to use it instead of worrying needlessly.
Woke up this morning and didn’t know for sure where I was going next. I thought about Casa Grande and for some unknown reason I was looking at Ajo (pronounced Ah-Ho).
I found an RV Park in Ajo, AZ with really good reviews.
This place appealed to me because it was off the main Interstate. I had sent them an e-mail last week with no response and then called them yesterday and got their message manager.
I wasn’t up very long when they returned my call. Once I confirmed their pull-thru site availability and that the fact that they had a site available for me for one week I knew where I was heading.
My ‘original’ plan (back in November) was to spend the Winter in Arizona and California – didn’t know then it would take me two months to get here !! LOL
I also have been looking for a place where I could stay put for awhile. I might have found it. I don’t know yet.
Driving here via the 86W I was seeing some amazing roads to ride my bike. The closer I got the more I felt that maybe a week wasn’t going to be long enough.
Their weekly rate is $172, yet their monthly rate is $290 plus electricity. They had only one monthly site left. Lots of weekly sites. The weekly sites were nicer and towards the back which is what I would have preferred.
The poor Owner must have spent an hour with me looking at the different sites before I could make my decision. I booked the site for a month. I doubt that I will stay here that long, however, it didn’t make sense to pay for the weekly and then decide to stay another week at $172 = $344.
Can’t wait to scout around here on the bike. Certainly the temps are better now. At around 5 o’clock it was 16C. Now that’s better !!
As I was leaving to get on the road this morning I had to stop at the Post Office to mail something. The Parking Lot looked good when I pulled in…..but when I came out there were a ton more cars. Look what I got myself into:
Thanks to a kind stranger we eventually managed to get me out and on my way.
It seems I never tire of the scenes of the open road. Wonder if I’ll come across a Walmart or Harley Davidson store on this route……NOT !
While the Owner was showing me the different sites I saw this
Don’t forget, if you want to see the pic larger just click on it. I near wet my pants laughing. I’ve seen lots of different signs regarding requesting Owners to pick up after their dogs, but this gotta be the best one yet.
For the next week or so I will be residing at the Ajo Heights RV Park. I’m going to experiment next with taking videos and see if I can figure out how to get those in my posts.
