Fulltime RVers always say that their plans are written in Jello, because we never know when something will come up to turn us in an entirely different direction than what we had intended. We’re experiencing a bit of that right now.
We had originally planned to stay here in Show Low for a couple of weeks, but our timing was bad, and it’s best that we move on sooner than that. We’re expecting some mail to arrive today or tomorrow, and we’ll probably head out Wednesday. We’re just not exactly sure where we’ll be going. Greg and Jan are going to stop in Williams for a few days to ride the Grand Canyon Railway and see some of the sites around there, but we did that last year, and while it was a fun trip, it’s not in our budget this time around.
We want to spend a week or so at the Escapees Park of the Sierras Co-op, near Coarsegold, California, but along the way we may stop a couple of places for a day or two, or even three. We may pop into the Thousand Trails Soledad Canyon preserve in Acton, California for a few days, and use it as a base for some exploring in that area. But I’ve heard the Verizon signal is pretty flakey there, so that may be an issue. Has anyone been there lately, and have any feedback to offer? After we leave the Park of the Sierras, we’ll start making or way north toward the Oregon coast, where we have reservations starting in early June. Between now and then, who knows where we’ll show up?
We hung around the campground yesterday, but we kept busy. The day started with a nasty clog in our black water tank that took a couple of hours to deal with. Note to self – Stick with Scott bathroom tissue, it works.
I spent the rest of the day answering e-mails and sending out copies of the mystery book I wrote about yesterday. I think about 50 blog readers asked for a copy. Thanks to everybody who asked to read it, and I appreciate the feedback I’ve received so far.
About 3 p.m. I laid down for a nap, but only got a few minutes before a phone call interrupted my snooze. Miss Terry was busy making her signature Mexican dinner, which she actually started the night before. She makes everything from scratch, and it’s a lot of work. But she loves cooking, and Greg and Jan seemed to love the results as much as I did. Roasted shredded beef tacos, shredded chicken enchiladas, refried beans, and all of the trimmings. Did I mention that I will never be a thin man? 🙂
After our dinner settled, Jan brought over a delicious pound cake, which she served with strawberries and whipped cream. I don’t think my buddy Greg will ever be a thin man either! 🙂
Thought For The Day – In the 60’s people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.
