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!
I celebrated my one year on the road, 3/5, with a cheeseburger and pitcher of beer at Emerald Cove’s Tiki bar. I like their burgers, yummy. Back in the desert, it rained a little yesterday and it is windy with gust of 40 mph today. It’s still T-shirt weather, though, and so I’ll take it.
Here at Emerald Cove Resort, there are people, cars and trucks. There was karaoke Friday and Saturday night until 11:00 PM, at the Tiki bar and they parked me next to it, it was awful. I enjoy the full hook-ups but it will be nice to get back to the solitude of the open desert.
I went to the Laundromat Mall, yesterday, to dump tanks, fill up on water and shower. It’s been nippy, 30sF at night and 60sF during the day. Early next week and we’ll be back in the 70sF. I’ve made reservations to stay at Emerald Cove Resort, again. I’ll be there, 3/5, to celebrate my 1 year anniversary on the road full-timing! Can you believe it, a year already? I was wondering why more people don’t retire this way but truth is, most of us RVers are indeed old folks!
