Our blog is to keep family and friends informed of our motorhome journeys.
We have dreamed of this for many years and finally our dream has come true.
We are looking forward to many happy miles ahead.

8 November 2017

We departed early for Wickenburg via Hwy 93 arriving around 130PM. Drive took us via Boulder City, and Kingman.Sunday is a good day for travel as traffic is light especially in LV.

We are staying for the night at Desert Cypress RV just behind McDonald's and Subway on Hwy 60 east. The campground is adjacent to a 55 plus mobile home park and appears the RV park is somewhat new and very nice.Much nicer than the one we stayed in last time..Horsepitality.

We arrived at Davis Monthan AFB campground around noon and much to our surprise, there were many open spaces. Usually we have to go into drycamp for several days. We chose #19 in the first section. Very nice park with mountain views. We are here to visit son Darin and son-in-law Kerry as well as friends Marta and Bill whom we met several years ago at the Air Force Academy..

Today we are going to Bill and Marta's for lunch and later over to Darin and Kerry's. Turns out that Darin is teaching at the same school Marta taught. What a small world. ..hoping they can meet sometime.

Marta fixed a delicious lunch for us..tacos, refried beans, rice and a lemon cake with pinapple and whipped cream topping with pecans and coconut. Melted in your mouth. Sent some with us for Darin and Kerry. They live in  a Del Webb community north of Tucson. Gave us a tour of the neighborhood and community center..very nice with state of the art exercise equipment and salt water pool.  Their dog Chewie is a dear and very friendly. Thank you dear friends for a wonderful afternoon and visit. Sure we will visit again before we leave.

We then drove over to Darin and Kerry's who live around 10 miles away. Kerry was still at work and we will all meet up for dinner at North's. They are planning a large Thanksgiving with family. Kerry has family living in Tucson and one of the reasons they relocated from San Antonio. After wine and conversation on the patio, Darin drove with us to the restaurant.  Delicious food, conversation , we departed for the campground and will get together on Sunday at campground.
