Places We Have Called Home In 2020

Home Is Where We Park It – Escapees North Ranch, Congress, Arizona

May 2, 2020

Temperature 89 Degrees

Mark The Date, May 15th And We’re On The Road Again

Projects Went Nowhere Today

Today was a marked contrast to yesterday.  The morning was cool and the day remained the same.  Not to mention there was a stiff southerly wind of about 20 mph.

Breakfast was great as always.  I had a breakfast burrito, fried Spam, a glass of Orange juice and a couple of cups of coffee.  A great way to start the day.  Now, if I only had something to do.

The decision has been made, we’re moving out on Friday, May 15th.  We’re going north to Kingman, Arizona.  We’ve made reservations at Fort Beale RV Park which has excellent ratings on Campground Reviews.  Why are we moving?  Why not!  We’ve sat still long enough.  The Stay At Home Order will be lifted that day.  There is no reason not to get back on the road.  North Ranch has been an excellent port in the storm and still remains at the top of our list for a possible permanent home base in the future.

One project on the list today.


I wanted to install the new propane detector, it is the item to the right on the table above.  I wanted to but it was not meant to be.  The new one is considerably smaller than the currently installed unit meaning there are some fitment issues.  I, therefore, had to take a step back and figure out what to do.  I believe I have an idea that will work and I’ll share it with you tomorrow when I actually install it.

That brought us to our afternoon supper.  On the menu today were chicken cutlets, rice and cauliflower.   Oh yea, my sweetheart knows how to cook up some scrumptious meals.  You better believe I cleaned my plate!

The new AC is working great.  It keeps Elvira at a reasonable temperature inside which means we are very cool and comfortable.  No complaints from either of us.

That brings us to the end of our day on The Road of Retirement.  Not much going on which was fine by me.  Tomorrow I’ll pick up the pace now knowing in two weeks we’ll be pulling out.  Oh just typing that brings joy to my heart.  The road is where we belong.

This says it all.

Thanks for coming along with us on our rather short day.  It was nice having you and we always appreciate your comments.  Keep safe.  Wear your mask.  Wash your hands.  Till tomorrow.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and it’s two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.

See you on down the road!
