Mar 8, 2019 - Return trip to Yuma

After getting off a very cold boat ride we left The resort at 12:30. Big winds threw the bus all over the highway again all the way to Flagstaff. Mother nature threw everything she had at us on this ride,Howling winds,Sand storm ,Snow storm, and off course some pounding rain on us,it was quite interesting. Not sure what we would find in Flagstaff since it sits close 7500 feet! As it turned out the skies cleared and we stopped for lunch in Flagstaff with no more weather related issues today. We arrived in Yuma tonight at 9:45. Our tour...

Nov 2, 2018 - We are in Flagstaff, Arizona

After a nice visit with Marie we caught the ferry from Nanaimo on Wednesday morning and arrived in Delta around noon. We jumped in the van ready to drive off the ferry and it wouldn't start. I guess after sitting for a couple days at Marie's and plugging both coolers in they killed the battery. It didn't take them long to boost us and we were on our way. We headed for the border and had no problem getting into the USA. It probably took 15 min and that was waiting for the people a head of us. It rained a good portion of the day. We got a...

Oct 5, 2018 - Travel on I-40

You might have heard the saying “The silence is deafening” which is a striking absence of noise. Well, that is how it was at Bonito Campground, a Forest Service campground located about 20 miles north of Flagstaff. The campground is basic – no electric or water to fill your tanks. No internet or phone access and very, very quiet. However, after Albuquerque and our stops along I-40, it was quite a nice change. It was so quiet that I noticed the ringing in my ears and it was so dark we can see the stars! Plus, with only one week left before...

Oct 3, 2018 - Bayfield, CO to Flagstaff, AZ

After a day off, we hit the road again this morning. It rained during the night but was gone this morning & we only had a few sprinkles after we took off. We drove thru mountains, into desert, & back into mountains at Flagstaff. Beautiful views all day long. We drove on some wavy roads that weren't fun double-hitching but otherwise we had no problems & made it to Flagstaff in good time. We're spending the nite at Black Bart's RV Park. They have a steakhouse with singing waiters but we decided to eat our sloppy joes at home. There's a cute...

Sep 29, 2018 - Coconino National Forest

Greetings to our family and friends, Firstly, I want to thank you for reading my journals. I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures. Now on to the journal. After leaving Goosenecks State Park we headed south towards Flagstaff. We chose this area because its elevation is high enough to provide comfortable temperatures. We are killing time waiting for Quartzsite to cool while we also explore yet another forest. The drive through the northern part of Arizona was actually more scenic than I anticipated. I expected flat desert like that...

Sep 8, 2018 - Flagstaff

/// Saturday - September 8, 2018 A Travel Day: We departed Kanab, UT earlier than planned and made good time traveling east on Hyw 89 towards Page, AZ Our route today would be all on US Hwy 89. The estimated distance of approximately 200 miles. The road conditions were very nice across southern Utah but rough from Page, AZ most all the way to Flagstaff. We stopped just twice. Once to kick the tires and clean the windshield and our second stop was at the Cameron Trading Post. This is always a favorite stop. We ate our light lunch in the...

Apr 26, 2018 - Flagstaff

Took the day off yesterday and stayed in the campground. Allen from Allen's Mobile RV Service showed up around 8:30. Unfortunately our troubles continue. The compressor is shot on one of our rooftop AC units. You can't just replace the compressor. The whole thing has to be replaced. I made a phonecall back home to get an idea on pricing then made some calls down here. We've made arrangements for Desert Mobile RV Repair to replace the unit on site in the campground the day after we pull into Las Vegas next week. Even with the exchange rate,...

Apr 21, 2018 - Flagstaff area

Hello all. The answer to installment 2 of “Where in the World is Joey Bliss?” is Meteor Crater. It is located on I-40 about half way between Flagstaff and Winslow AZ. (Standin’ on the Corner ). They estimate the nickel-iron meteor was about 150 feet across weighing several hundred thousand pounds and began to break apart when it entered the earth’s atmosphere, and then taking about 10 seconds to strike the earth at about 26,000 mph. When it struck, over 175 million tons of limestone and sandstone were abruptly thrown out to form a...

Apr 19, 2018 - "Where in the World..." part 2.

Well, here is the second installment of “Where in the World is Joey Bliss?” I guess you will quickly see that Joey is not in the picture. So I guess the “most correct” answer would be that he is in the RV. This location does not allow pets. We figured that they really didn’t know it was THE Joey, but we just let it slide this time. However, even though Joey is in the RV, we are asking you to see if you can tell where we all are. Here is the clue: As you will see, this is ‘another hole in the ground’ and it is in the general vicinity of...

Mar 27, 2018 - Albuquerque to Flagstaff

The trip to Flagstaff was a full day. As we travelled further into AZ the scenery got more defined, dramatic and beautiful. It was a welcome change after all the rolling plains. Our first stop was the National Petrified Forest & Painted Dessert. We drove the trail thru the park stopping at most of the points of interest. The scenery was very pretty and pastel ish. We decided to do the Blue Mesa trail about 2 miles long. It was a unique experience hiking among badland hills of bluish clay as well as petrified wood. The petrified wood looks...

Oct 25, 2017 - Flagstaff

We arrived in Flagstaff to cooler weather and some fall colors. The next day a close friend joined us for a day of relaxation and site seeing. We drove to Sunset Crater National Park. Sunset Crater volcano exploded in 1064 so it is considered a recent volcano. It was amazing to me that much of the terrain still shows no sign of regrowth. It takes hundreds of years for the volcanic rock to decompose and become fertile enough for anything to grow.
