I just signed up for another month here at Antelope Valley RV Park. I like it here. The hosts are friendly and the guests are quiet. It is next to a highway and a train track with horns as they work their way through town – I’ve never slept better! I’m more relaxed around familiar sounds. It reminds me of the movie My Cousin Vinny, where Vinny (Joe Pesci) from New Jersey, finally got some sleep while in jail.
I am now relaxing at Antelope Valley RV Park in Delta, Utah. On the way here, I stayed a night at a truck stop. Nights at truck stops in the past have been good, not this time, a truck with a refrigerated trailer running all night parked right next to me making it hard to get any sleep. Anyway, I’m thinking of staying here at Antelope Valley Park for a month. I like it here and it’s next to a city where I can get some things done. I need to get the beast’s exhaust checked and the generator’s tail pipe fixed. I also need to get an eye exam since I haven’t done so in a long time.
I’m on my way north, it’s starting to get hot down south. I first stopped, for a night at a roadside turnout, south of Bumble Bee, AZ. Then onto Bonito Campground, Coconino National Forest, dispersed camping for a night, there was a lot of traffic on dirt roads, kicking up too much dust. Now I’m at Lees Ferry Campground NPS for 2 nights, very nice here, next to the Colorado River.
It sure is nice here at Desert Vista KOA Campground with full hook-ups, the guests are friendly and so is the staff. While planning my future travels, I have noticed a lot of RPI campgrounds in Arizona have a 15 year RV age “restriction” (mine is 32 years old!). I haven’t been in a park that had RVs that didn’t appear to belong there because of age, so I don’t know why. I sent off an email asking what restrictions, I’ll let you know of the response.
I’ll be moving on, soon, 4/12. I’ve enjoyed it here in the Sonoran Desert, quiet, solitude, warm. My BLM LTVA pass will expire 4/15 and, also, it will be getting very hot here. I think I will start out going east through Arizona, New Mexico, and maybe even Texas! Remember Desert Vista Campground in Salome AZ? I have a reservation for a week there with full hook-ups, a nice way to continue my RV adventure!
