Welcome to Arizona

Here in Mesa there is a huge amount of construction, thus gravel on the roads. Our welcome to the state consisted of a rock that chipped the windshield on the car. Lucky it was easy to plug and we did not have to get a new one.
Tomorrow we move to our permanent site for the winter.

Off Road

We did a little offroading. These are some of the trails we were on. As we get more experience we find out more things to watch out for like not knowing what is at the bootom of a steep hill.

Today is back to the RV shop to install a new rear air conditioner. They had to order a new one out of California as there was none in the Phoenix area that also had a heat pump.

RV Maintenance

Today we are sitting at a RV maintenance facility in Mesa. Getting preventive maint done on a coach that now has 65,000 miles on it. A lot of normal maint, but some special like replacing radiator hoses, checking brakes, repacking front wheels, air dryer maint and the likes.
Big item is the rear A/C compresser locked up and needs to be replaced. Goods new it is covered under our extended warrenty.
Will probably be here for at least another day.
Went to see Robin Williams last night in 'The Man of the Year', Ok, but not his best show.

We are back in what has become our home in Mesa AZ. We'll be here for the next 6 months at our RV park. We travelled over 11,000 miles this summer since leaving here last March. All the way from here to San Diego to Fryburg Maine and down the coast to North Carolina. Then down the Natchez Trace through LA, TX, NM and back to AZ.
Many things to do here to switch most of our finances and medical things from Overland Park, KS to Mesa.
When we do decided to get off the road(which is not close) we will settle around Mesa.

Yesterday we drove to Columbus NM to see what was there. It is close to the border.

Bummer, nothing much there but a nice drive in the desert.

Gila Cliff National Park

Sat we drove up to the cliff dwelling which is about 90 miles from Deming,AZ
Indians lived there about 1270 AD. It is a long climb up.
