Safe at Home!

We arrived home this afternoon after several days on the road. We spent 3 days in Willcox, AZ visiting an old Navy buddy. We had a great time with JD and look forward to more visits with him.

We visited Apple Annie’s, tasted a little wine, and found time for a DQ while in Willcox.

We then drove through Douglas, AZ planning to stay in Bisbee but I missed the road to the RV park and the next place to turn around was 16 miles later. RV Parks in Tombstone were full so we continued on to Cochise Terrace in Benson where we have stayed many times. It is a real nice park. Very clean. Our stay included tickets for a free meal the first night. It was served in their clubhouse and was very good.

After a 3 day stay we moved back to the Elks Lodge in Casa Grande for one day to again visit Clyda's cousin Rod and his wife Clara Lynn. Their daughter Nikki came down from Mesa and we all went to dinner. Really nice to see Nikki.

We then moved on to Quartzsite with a stop at RV Pitstop to get a propane tank re-certified and filled. With that accomplished we found a spot on Plamosa Road for the night. The next day we moved on to Kelbaker Road on old Hwy 66 between Needles and Barstow. We have stayed here before but this time there was a lot of wind so we spent little time outside.

The next morning we drove to Bakersfield through Tehachapi where the California poppies on the western hills were unbelievable. Huge patches of orange on the hillside. We stayed with Budd and Brenda for 2 days. Always fun to spend time with them. The ladies beat the guys BADLY in Sequence as usual but us guys got back at them playing Jokers and Marbles last night.

Today we drove home via Santa Maria with all the hills so green. Unless we get rain soon it will be it's usual brown before long.

Sorry, no photos tonight.
