Greetings from Paradise RV Park, Sun City Arizona


We spent last night at Creteor Meteor RV park in Winslow, AZ, just 5 miles from the Creteor Meteor.  Since we got in to late last night to go see the meteor, we decided to go see it this morning on our way.  They had a Great BIG parking lot for campers, so it was easy to find a parking place.  In fact, there were no other campers and very few cars in the parking lot.  The movie about how the cretoer was formed was very informing.  Then we took an hour long tour of the creator.  Our tour guide was very information and funny too.  After our tour we visited the museum and then headed out.

Winslow, AZ is only 3 1/2 hrs from Paradise RV Resort, here in Sun City.  So we got here 3:00 p.m. this afternoon.  It was great to see the staff here at Paradise and to be remembered.  Once we were lead to our site and backed in, we got all set up.  While setting up, I looked over to see Kathy, whom we had met last year.  She is a permanent resident here at Paradise.  She is also a great container gardener. 

Our next door neighbor came in right before us, so it was easy to meet Bob.  He seems to be by himself.  We didn't see an women with him.  However, he did talk about his wife and their travels in prior years. 

Tomorrow will be a really busy day.  We need to finish getting settled in here.  There is also grocery shopping to be done as well as the laundry.  So first things first.  I think we will take care of the laundry, and get a egg sandwich at the dinner while the clothes are washing.  Then while they dry we will take a walk around the place. 

Until tomorrow

Have a wonderful day.

Greetings from Albuquerque, NM. 


Tuesday morning dawned cold outside, but warm in the camper.  As we were getting ready to leave, I noticed we had two flat tired on the curb side of the camper.  Luckily a man across the street had a compressor and came over to fill the tires up.  He also told us there was a tire shop across the interstate about a mile away.  Harris called them and we were happy to find out they could take us right away.  Upon inspection they found both of the rims were cracked.  Of course they didn't have the aluminium rims we needed.  After calling the company that made the rims, they told us to send them back to them and they would send us new ones.  Since the Tire company only had steel rims, we decided to get them and get on the road.  It was already noon.  So after we got lunch we hit the road about 4 hrs later than we thought we would.  

Last night we stayed at a campground in Texola right on the Texas, Oklahoma border.    After we pulled into the campground, 5 other units joined us.


This morning we got up a little earlier than we usually do knowing we wanted to make it an over 400 mile day. As we got on the highway, we noticed another fifthwheel ahead of us.  We were debating if it were a DRV or not.  I was sure it was a DRV.  A little while later, we passed them.  Yep, it was a DRV.   The rest of the day was pretty uneventful.  We pulled into Enchanted Trails RV park around 4:00 p.m.  As we were setting up another camper pulled in right next to us.  The funny thing is this couple were at the campground where we stayed last night.   What are the odds!!

Tomorrow is another travel day! 

Have a wonderful day

On The Road Again!!

Greeting from Oklahoma City.   

With the house empty and new tenants moving in this week, we are truly full times in our RV. 

We left Nashville yesterday afternoon around 2:30 p.m. Our first stop was to spend the night in a Kroger parking lot in West Memphis.  We had intended to spend the night in the Walmart parking lot there, but when we got there we found they had a barrier across each entrance that would not let us enter.  I believe they did not want trucks or tall vehicles.  Luckily the Kroger store was close by and were glad to have us spend the night in their parking lot.  They were also a all night Kroger store. 

We got up this morning and walked to the Shoenys restaurant across the parking lot for breakfast.  The day was uneventful as we traveled west toward Phoenix (Sun City, AZ).  Tonight we are enjoying a campground near Oklahoma City. 

We head out again in the morning.  Since the weather looks like it will be good for our journey west, we plan to continue on I-40.  Usually we head west on I-10 because of bad weather up north on I-40.  

I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Until tomorrow night
