In front of our camper at Krazy K
Monday, April 15

“On the Road Again”  Up early to finish packing.  We were not planning on checking out until after 9:00 so we could turn in our mail key to the office.  So we didn’t have to hurry to get things finished.  Around 8:30 David and Janice came to tell us goodbye.  Shortly after they arrived Gaye and Cork came by.  Then our neighbor, Kathy came over to tell us goodbye.  What a wonderful set off.  They all left before we pulled out, saying they didn’t want to see us go.   

Our trip was short as we were only going to Camp Verde, AZ (about 2 hrs) where we were spending the night at Krazy K Campground for the night.  Our reason for stopping there  was to meet up with Bridget and John Hatch.  We met they two years ago at a DRV Rally and have not seen them since.  They too are full timers and we don’t seem to be in the same area. 

We arrived shortly be for lunch.  Bridget and John came over to our camper and we all went to the Verde Lei Market for lunch.  What a great place.  We both had a Torta.  After lunch we went back to their camper for a little while and then back here to ours.

Moving Day????  We got up to high winds and I-40 closed from Flag Staff to Windslow.  So we decided to stay here at Krazy K one more day.   

Our day was eventful.  After breakfast and a walk around the park, we headed into Cottonwood to  walked around the stores before having lunch at Tavern Grille, where we enjoyed a great meal and a good beer. 
When we left Cottonwood we headed for Tuzegoot ruins.  While there I got a text from Janice saying they were heading up here.  We were thrilled that they were going to make the trip all the way up here to see us.  They arrived just before dinner.  Harris fixed brats, while I made a salad and opened a bag of chips.  We were so glad to see them.  Their surprise for us was their new Honda CRV.  They also brought my very special four legged friend Sadie to visit me one more time.  It was really hard seeing them leave.  We will sure miss them.  But will look forward to catching up with them somewhere.  Plus we will see them again when we get back to Paradise.

Moving day!!  It looks like we will be able to head out today.  The winds are down so it should be a good day.  We hope to get to Albuquerque this afternoon.  We are note in any real hurry as they are having snow in Denver.  So we may end up staying somewhere another day waiting for their weather to get better. 
We arrived in Albuquerque this just before dinner.  Our day was uneventful, except for the weather.  We had sun, clouds, snow, snow flurries, snain, and dry all in one day.  The winds, however were not to bad.  Just before we arrived at "Enchanted Trails RV park, the winds began to pick up.  The temperatures had already dropped a bunch since we left in the morning.  While Harris hooked everything up, I stayed in the truck waiting until I could run inside the camper to get the slides out and the furnace on.  The winds rocked us all night.

Before we went to bed, we heard on the news that Raton Pass, on I-25 north, was closed at the Colorado border. So we knew our plans may be changed a bit. This morning it was still closed and was going to be until 6:00 p.m. tonight. With that our decision was made to stay here one more day. While up at the office renewing for one more night, several others were coming in doing the same thing.
The winds have been really high all day.  I am really glad we are not out on the road.  Our day was very uneventful.  We made a Walmart run, and stopped at Camping World.  Then back home to catch up on some computer and paper work.  (which is all needed anyway). 
We are hoping to make Denver tomorrow late afternoon.  So we are praying this wind dies down or just goes away.  We are also praying the roads are dry and no problems as we head over the pass.
Until next time:  Have a good day.
