In Casa Grande

Location, Casa Grande, AZ

Yesterday we moved on to Casa Grande and are camped at the Elks Club. They have only eight back-in sites available with no utilities but water. Then again, the price is right at $5 per night. The club is located on Florence, the main street in town and is somewhat noisy. The trains also ran all night with whistles at every crossing and there are a lot of crossings.

We had intended to leave yesterday morning but my RV batteries were giving me problems so I had an appointment for 2 PM at Discount Solar in Quartzsite to replace them. We arrived just be 2 and within a half hour were ready to go with two new Trojan T105RE batteries and a lot lighter in the wallet.

We arrived in Casa Grande at 6:15 PM just as the sun set. It was meeting night at the Elks so I was worried about access to the RV sights as the parking lot is usually full for that. No problem however as I could easily pull down a row of vehicles and back straight into the site.

After paying, we drove to Clyda’s cousin’s house for dinner. They only live 3 miles from the Elks Club. We didn’t get back to the RV until almost 11 PM.

Today is laundry and grocery shopping and dinner tonight with cousin and niece.
