We arrived at the USA RV Park with only a minor blip in the journey. When we were a mere one quarter mile from the entrance to the park, our GPS had us make a left turn into a mobile home park. I’m sure the residents thought we were nuts driving through their neighborhood, and we were a little perplexed when Mavis told us to “leave the road” (?), and can I tell you, there were a FLIPPING MILLION speed bumps which made our impromptu side trip way more challenging than it needed to be, but we circled through and called the RV park when we pulled out and they told us they were right down the street! We should have known something was a bit awry because the address of the RV park is Route 66! Duh! If we had looked down the street just about a block, we would have seen the sign! But, other than that, we had an uneventful trip.
This park has a nice fenced-in dog run and Cooper made some new friends right away. We’re always happy when the park has a clean and secure dog run. Cooper even joined in a game of fetch the ball with his new friend Haley. He NEVER plays with a ball at his home dog park, so that was kind of cool!
Today we decided to sleep in, have a leisurely morning and stay close to”home”. A perfect time to catch up on some chores that we had been putting off for a while. In past trips, I always used to pull out my 6’ ladder and clean the windshield, front bib and sides of the motor home every time we stopped and set up camp. We’ve been so busy trying to see as much as possible and we’ve spent so much time driving in the car, I kept putting off the chores. So today after we explored the town a little, we came back and I got a few things done. So now, the windshield on the motor home has been cleaned and the privacy cover is on. The front of the cab has been cleared of old bugs from the drive east in order to make room for new bugs on our drive west. And the back of the rig has been wiped clean as far up as I could reach, because I don’t have my 6’ ladder anymore. I know, how boring, but these things gotta be dealt with.
Tomorrow we plan to drive about 90 miles to Canyon de Chelly National Monument. We’re not sure what there is there, but heard there’s some interesting stops along the rim.
That’s it for today!
Hugs from us!
