Our month at the Saguaro SKP park in Benson, AZ has been most productive, and on March 11th we celebrated three years as fulltime RVers! Since our last post, we have continued to enjoy good visits… Diane & Dave stayed until just this past week, Karen & Bob were here for two weeks, Delcie & Freddy for a week, and Pam & Red and Lynn & Roger are here now. Good friends; special times together!
Tom finished building and installing the new cabinet by the door in our motorhome… this was a cluttered, unorganized space before and is now a great addition for storage and table space. The drop-down leaf holds items on two shelves in place as we travel, and offers a nice surface for food/drinks or projects. Also, a handy spot to set the tv and watch from the sofa across the room when we are plugged into electricity. Great job, Tom!
Also checked another item off our list… replaced the cooling unit on our refrigerator with a new Amish cooling unit! The fridge was pulled out into the middle of the motorhome and Tom and several friends enjoyed watching the process! This job was done by a company out of Tucson, and the refrigerator is now providing much better efficiency!
The fridge service took place while I was away, and I enjoyed updates and photos Tom captured… no stress for me… I never “felt” a thing :) While all this was happening, I spent five days in Boise, Idaho visiting my sister and brother-in-law there… great hospitality, and a special time with them! We took in a concert, wine tasting followed by lively music at a Basque restaurant, a bbq at friends, lots of visiting, shopping and a bike ride. I also enjoyed watching and listening to a musical performance by Sherri & Ed at their church. Found Boise to be a beautiful city with tree-lined streets and creeks… lots of walking and biking paths, and parks, lakes and rivers there and nearby! Tom and I look forward to returning in late April or May to explore their area further before moving to our summer location in Wyoming.
So, tomorrow we are moving back to Tucson to finish up a few things before leaving the area. Having some adjustments made to our MCD window coverings, and Tom has a [hopefully] final fitting for his new prosthesis! Last week yielded a nearly-perfect fit, so we are hopeful that Wednesday will produce all the comfort he is hoping for!
The remainder of March will find us again in Quartzsite for some relaxing and peaceful boondocking in a favorite location before we begin slowly moving north throughout April. Have enjoyed a mild winter here in the desert southwest, and will continue to enjoy the warming temperatures and this beautiful desert area while transitioning to summer!
Enjoy Spring! Be well, everyone! Dianne & Tom
There is life and such mystery just below the surface as spring is about to burst forth! The trees look dead, but notice the many buds. See the tiny green shoots coming through the soil. Each day is a new vision of renewal. In the desert or in the mountains… what a special time!!!
