Sun. Jan. 29. Meeting Fellow Bloggers

Thanks for joining us in our journey of North America 
in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006 

Where are we Today ?

        Sunny, sunday and another great Arizona winter day. Coffees computing, and a walkabout the big tent for a couple cheapy items, last day for the show. Then back home adjusted the springs in our couch and putter around for a bit. Then we had checked our fresh water level and yes we can have a shower.

        Now all squeaky clean and smelling much better, (don't want waste a good shower) we are off to visit Al and Kelly of the Bayfield Bunch. I stumbled on their Blog a while back and noticed they were from Bayfield in Southern Ontario, close to where we spend a lot of our summers. And that he grew up in the areas where we have lived for many years, like New Hamburg, Tavistock, Punkey Doodle Corners and Plattsville, small world. Saw they were just outside of Quartzsite here, sent them an email then he sent us directions to their spot of  home dirt in the desert.
           The directions were great except I didn't look at a map first (duh !)
Plomosa rd
         We headed north on 95 and realized it's not Plomosa Road. So we drove and drove not sure what to do. Spotted a Sherif and were given directions now were are not lost, just later than we said we would be. Directions were right on past a certain mile marker, look for some square rocks at the left side of the road, follow the trail turn along the wash and look for their flags. Hey we found you sorry we are late.

Al, Kelly and Pheebs, Cora was resting.
here's Cora we woke her up
        We had a very nice visit, its so nice to actually meet someone that you feel like you have already met. A very nice friendly couple. We both have a real love for southern Arizona and for very different but the same reasons. Hard to explain but it is possible. We love the wide open spaces, lack of huge crowds, the dry climate, clear blue skies, free camping, interesting history and scenery just to name a few reasons. Before we knew it time had flown by and we had to hit the road (don't wanna wear out our welcome) and for the scenic drive home.
back out the wash to the road
Heading home
Jumping Teddy Bear (Cholla) Cactus
        A fun excursion for sure, now home to fire up the Weber, read for a few minutes then throw on a couple potatoes to bake, broccoli and zucchini, a small steak for me and a chicken breast for Suzie.
         The end to another fun desert day, thanks for stopping by.
