Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer,
since August 2006
Was it cold here? Well for this part of Arizona on thursday (the day before we got here) it got down to 6f (-14c), not cold for some parts of the country but very extreme for here. Many of the huge prickly pear cactus were destroyed by the extreme cold as were the palm tree leaves. Are we complaining about the cold??? NO. I'm just telling it like it is. It sure is a lot warmer and sunnier than back home.

But it was bright and sunny and hardly any wind so we can enjoy a few hours or bright Arizona skies, after such a busy morning. One thing that we did notice was all the advertising here for Super Bowl stuff... food, beer, drinks, snacks, sandwiches, chicken wings, pizza. Its almost like Super Bowl Sunday is a bigger event than Christmas. The clubhouse was packed noisily with people from the resort with snacks, beverages and serious fans (not a place for us) for a 4 hour football game. The ones that did not go were bringing in pizza etc... to their rigs at half time.
