Jun 25, 2015 - Flagstaff, AZ

The plan today was to make it to Kingman, AZ. With 19 mph cross winds (gusting to 25) and construction lane closures for the last 3 days we opted to spend 2 nights in Flagstaff, AZ in order to avoid driver burnout. The RV resort across town was 100% booked so we worked our way down the list and landed at Black Bart’s RV Park. At 7000 feet, there are pine trees and the smell of a real forest. $32.50 a night. One of the downsides of the park is that it is close to I-40 and a truck lot owned by the park. The other is that very little...

Hi Everybody, It feels really good to have internet access again. Of course, I had to buy an iPhone to get it. I have finally graduated to the big leagues. We visited another AT&T store today. They adjusted Mike's phone and told him it was fixed. Go to use it tonight get the message "cannot connect". He was so frustrated he went for a walk. I put my code in and got right on. Well, we finally got to Flagstaff to a Ford Dealer. Left the van, rented a car and ran errands Came back at 4:30 to find out they did not even move the van. So, we are...

Takin the Slow Road

May 13, 2015 - We're Back

We are back online. Well a lot has happened since our last post. After Tombstone we traveled to a Walmart in Anthem Az. We had to hide behind a Chase bank so that a housing association wouldn't call the police. We left Walmart on Monday morning heading for Flagstaff Az to gaze upon the Grand Canyon. Well while we were driving thru the mountains we experienced a check engine light. Art quickly had Rosina on the phone looking for a Freightliner company. She found one in Flagstaff. We pulled in at 2:30 pm. Well they ran an engine check with...

Not in Grand Canyon country tonight, or even Page, AZ. We drove on down to Flagstaff to find hotels with better prices. Days Inn here [nice clean room] is half the price of the Quality Inn at Tuba, AZ where the only other place is a brand new native hotel called Legacy Inn which doesn't accept pets. Price changed at the Quality Inn while we talked at registration desk. I asked if the price would be changing again if I slept there. so this Days Inn is fine, and we can hear the light traffic on Route 66 with window open for a cool breeze. If...

Hancock Log

Oct 4, 2014 - And Even More Wasted Time

The technician at the Caterpillar dealer had told us the part would probably not be in until about noontime, but the earlier we could get there the better to get our place in the queue. So we arrived there about 9 am and spent the rest of the day in the driver’s lounge. They began working on Otto around 11, changing the fuel filters and topping off the fluids. We then went out for a test drive with the diagnostic computer hooked up; while the “check engine” light did not come on and the computer did not come up with any “codes” showing a...

Sep 10, 2014 - Kingman, AZ to Flagstaff, AZ

We left and headed to Flagstaff. We had a nice, uneventful drive. Terry and Jim went back to Locket Meadow (Bob and Tony went with them) where we used to camp. Cathy and I stayed behind to have some ME time and I wanted to catch up on my blog, it is winding down. We ht prepared salmon for dinner tonight and it was wonderful. The first of what we got in Klamath. The biting bugs were out so we had to go inside pretty early. It was a nice day.

Sep 7, 2014 - Flagstaff, AZ

We took off from Bryce Canyon and drove to Cameron, AZ. What beautiful country! First we went through Red Canyon that we had to go through to get to Bryce. There were some gorgeous cliffs, all red as you would expect. When we got to US 89 the scene changed and we had more of sage brush with some red walls all the way to Kanab. We followed red walls all the way down to Cameron, AZ. They were spectacular, going from small to high above us to small again. We crossed the Colorado at Marble Canyon and when we ran out of red walls it flattened...

Alaska Trip

Aug 4, 2014 - Flagstaff, AZ

Mountain Standard Time here - no Daylight Savings time for Arizona. That means that they are 3 hours earlier than Atlanta time. We are in a jewel of an RV Park, J & H RV Park, with lots of nice group gardens and funny signs. "This is our slice of Heaven so please don't drive like Hell" "Pets must be accompanied by an adult, children must be leashed" On to Page in the morning! What a treat we had before leaving Flagstaff. J. D. and Faith-Ann, across from our site in the campground, have multiple hummingbird feeders and many hungry...

2014 Western Trip

Jul 11, 2014 - Campsite: Flagstaff

We stayed at the Flagstaff KOA for the first time. Vicky liked it as it reminded her of camping back in N.B. We went to Western Sizzler and had a terrible meal, not on purpose mind you. Our CO2 and Propane gas monitor went off once we setup camp. It indicated that it detected Propane gas, so I turned off the gas and aired out the RV, but no change. So after sure we had no gas issues and plenty of fresh air, I decided to remove the monitor, since I could not get it to stop beeping. I figure it was defective and I would pick on up in the...

Jul 4, 2014 - Bryce Canyon NP

Today we took the Bryce Canyon Shuttle along an 18-mile scenic drive. The overlooks were amazing! You could see for hundred of miles. Seeing the Hoodoos was incredible. They look like whole cities from a distance. We took some short hikes, and each step offered a different angle and view. We saw a Pronghorn and cute chipmunks. Leaving Utah, we took the Mt. Carmel Scenic Byway driving through the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. We never got tired of looking at the layers of red sandstone mountains. With each mile, the landscape...

Jul 1, 2014 - Flagstaff AZ ..................................

We are staying at the Sonesta ES Suites on the outskirts of Flagstaff. It is more like a apartment complex. It has a living room space, furnished full kitchen (even a dishwasher), bar with two bar chairs, desk and a fireplace. It is very roomy. The breakfast was also amazing. They provided make your own waffles, scrambled eggs, toppings for your eggs, cooked oatmeal, fruit and lots more. All was very good. They have a nice outside pool and hot tub. There is also a fenced in basketball court right by the pool. They also provide a 2 hour...
