              We are Grand parents again ! ( number 8)Ya hoo !!!! Daughter number 2 had her 3rd child today a baby girl at 7:35 this morning . Every one is healthy and doing well, She is 7lbs 5 oz and this photo was taken when she was less than 1 hour old . Wow what a cutie, Are we happy, yup you betcha. Can't wait to see her in the spring. But we have been getting lotsa pictures sent to us, bonus ! Love technology ! That is our big news for the day, all the rest of this posting is not so important anymore.
     
               The early morning that we always do and more wonderful weather. My first walkabout before 7 am I passed by these 3 men in hunting gear looking through some high powered binoculars at the mountains. I stopped to chat for a few minutes and they were hoping someone was leaving today. I say's hey we be gone in an hour and you can have our site. Most of these are first come first served. They were happy campers.
       These guys are hunting the Siberian Ibex that they have tags for originally from Asia and are really flourishing here in the mountains around this area. You can check them out HERE almost like Mountain goats that cling to the shear mountain cliffs in this area.
Ryan one of the hunters that moved to our site
      We secured our coach and moved out just after 7:30 am stopped at the dump station and on the road by 7:45 heading to Arizona.
the long horns by the side of the road to say goodbye
love seeing these guys here
        Heading west on I-10n as we have done many times before, the usual warning signs about dust storms, and we have seen a few over the years. Clear sailing today, bonus !
      After fuelling up at the Flying J in Lordsburg we crossed into Arizona. Where we will spend most of our winter months wandering about the desert .
love the decorative overpasses here
        Just before Benson stop at the Texas Canyon rest area, for stretch and make a nice light lunch.
love the rock formations here
        Just 20 minutes later we arrived in Benson , topped up our propane and down the road the Super Lube Plus to get our coach serviced as we have done almost every year for the last 11. No appointment needed and we were taken in to get a lube , oil and filter done on our coach. Tom the Manager has been here every year and welcomed us. These guys are very thorough they do it right!
they can take rv's up to 12 ft and ours in 11ft 9 in.
no problem
      Just 20 minutes down the road we arrived at Quail ridge TV resort and check in just after 1:30. With our AOR membership only $9.00 a night plus electric, last year electric was only $1.25 for a week, we use our solar to save and it works wonderful.
all set up just after 2 pm and relaxing in the shade , 78F
love this trailer across from us
clear blue skies
one huge trails behind this coach!
    Enjoying our e-readers for a while then soon time to whip up supper. Tonight a couple of bone in pork chops,  Acorn squash and a salad for supper.
all done on our Weber Q 100 of course
nice sunset as were are ready to eat
moist and tender chops, squash excellent
and our healthy salad
sure hit the spot
       A nice travel day, great weather and settled in here for a few days, really gonna enjoy this area.
       Still loving the weather and nice to have you along with us for the journey.
       Thanks for stopping by and hope y'all had a great day as well.
