So far I've missed two days of blogging so this one will be a little long to get everyone caught up.
We left Lancaster about 10:00 am hoping to make it to Kingman AZ. However hubby got a stomach bug and that didnt happen. In fact he was feeling so bad that I absolutely insisted we stop and we parked overnight (with permission) in Topock AZ on the Colorado River with no hook ups but it was a perfect place for him to rest. We got up the next morning with no cell phone because we had no power and somehow had left without the push plug that goes into the lighter plug..... so we had breakfast (well I did anyway he couldnt eat his and I found a plug at the local Shell gas station and we were back on the road on I40.
On the 16th we got into Flagstaff and got new plates and registration for Phoenix (the RV). Our goal was to make it to the Navajo Nation Museum since I am a Harvest Host member but hubby just couldn't make it. Driving a 32ft class A takes a lot of concentration especially when dealing with weather. So I recalculated our plans for the night and we spent the evening at a lovely RV park called Meteor Crator RV Park.
Our spot at Meteor Crator RV Park.
Up very early this morning we got our showers and walked Ginger and we were back on the highway at 8:00 am hoping we would make it to Santa Rosa NM where I had reservations and prepaid..... ummmm well what I've learned with RV life is that you better be flexible and have multiple plans and even those might not pan out. For instance I really wanted us to get further on our journey today but we got in about 228 miles which is about 6 hours when you are driving 55. Our RV is happy to go faster but its much harder to control so 55 it is.
Our fur babies are tolerating the trip ok. Turbo yells every morning when we start out but stops fairly quickly. He is just voicing his unhappiness at getting woke up. Ginger wants to help her dad drive and is mad that i wont let her. She is a little freaked out by the big window and seeing all the vehicles go by and she hates the rain and windshield wipers so she hides under the sofa. and then comes out to get in my lap again and she does this multiple times. Its an adjustment period for them. Once we stop for the day they are happy as clams.
Tomorrows plan is to make it to the New Mexico Texas state line. That will be our longest ride yet at 272 miles. I hope can make it. I hope hubby is feeling better too. Its hard seeing him not feel well and struggle because he knows I have events.
So here are some of the pictures I've taken over the last couple of days.
