Folks, Check out my new header pic !! WOW huh !! Credit goes (once again) to my EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT. I figured since she worked so hard getting me down here safe and sound she deserved a vacation. But vacation time is now over so I had to come up with some work for her. I had asked her to combine two pics for me for my header pic and being the OVER ACHIEVER she is – well this is the result.
Yesterday a knock comes on my ‘front’ door – yes, I have a front door and a back door. AND being a typical Newfoundlander the ‘front’ door is never used – everybody uses their back door.
I could not open the door because of this……
WTF !! Always something with a home on wheels isn’t it. The desert sun obviously to blame I figure.
The knock was from a fellow RV’er coming back from his walk and wanted to say “Hey” because he saw my Canadian flag. WELL, In a month or so from now there will be 10’s of thousands of Canadian flags. We did have a lovely chat. He told me they are from British Columbia, he is 84 years old and they have been coming South in their RV every year now for 30 years – and hopes to continue doing this for many more years to come.
Then I decided that it would be a good day to go check out that RV Park that is offering me 3 FREE nights. It was only about 20 minutes from here and a glorious day.
Just minutes before I was about to leave I heard someone talking to Bennie. It was Marty and Shelley, folks I met while in Osoyoos, and their adorable little Lulu !! How do people find me so easy ?? LOL
I LOVE Shelley’s t-shirt and will definitely be getting one of those…..
We had a great visit and non-stop chatting. Bennie and Lulu played and played and fought over ‘Baby’.
I think Bennie had an unfair advantage in this one…
Marty noticed the rubber hanging from my front door (I was going to deal with that later when I got back from my ride) but he had it fixed in no time !!
Look at those TALL legs – I would have had to get the ladder out !!! LOL
After a great visit I hopped on the bike to go check on this RV Park. Well I wasn’t on the Highway very long and the traffic pretty much came to a standstill. It was backed-up for as far as I could see. I noticed a motorcycle behind me going through the middle and I pulled over to let him through. I thought about that for awhile and then thought WTF ! I’m going to try that also.
I caught up with him and he tells me it is legal in California (which I knew) but not in Arizona so he was keeping a close eye out for any police cars. I followed him and then decided to move over to the paved shoulder as riding through the middle with an 18 wheelie on each side was a little tight at times. My right leg was really burning due to the hot pipes in this slow moving traffic and I would have been in it for hours if I hadn’t ridden the shoulder. I clocked the traffic back-up for 4 1/2 miles and that was only to the Exit I took. It was backed-up as far as you could see going West.
I found the Park and checked it out and it was ok. BIG problem with this Park is that there is a gravel hill going into the Park which I would dread having to take the bike down.
But FREE is always a good thing so I’ll no doubt take advantage of it sometime later this month or maybe early January.
Hopped on the bike and headed home.
Today was a cold, overcast and very windy day. UGH !! I didn’t even get dressed and stayed under the quilts all day.
I can never tire of those gorgeous Arizona sunsets….G’Night Folks
