Overton NV & Valley of Fire

From Organ Pipe, I worked my way north.  I had planned to stop in the Lake Havasu City area for a couple days.  However the two camping areas I had in mind on the north side of town were too crowded.  And after already driving through the city, I decided just to continue on north to Overton, NV where I plan to stay for a couple weeks or so.

Monday, March 5 to Wednesday, March 7

I stayed around Ajo a while longer hoping that the little bit of rainfall in the area might result in some flowers blooming in the desert. Monday morning I drive 35 miles south to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. Read More

A slower pace for winter

Thursday, February 22

Since I am hanging around in southern Arizona this winter in order to avoid really cold weather, I’m finding that the pace of life is much slower.  After being on the go so much last year, it is a nice change. Read More

A new camp – this is more like it!

Wednesday, February 14

After driving down thru Organ Pipe and realizing how far it is from Why, I revise my plans for the next couple weeks.  Its 60 miles round trip down to the areas where the scenic drives and trails are.  Too far to drive back and forth.  So I decide to spend a week or ten days in the Ajo area and then move down to the campground in the park.

Back to the Sonoran Desert

February 10, Saturday

This morning I get on the road at 10am PT, but since I’m heading east, after about 10 miles I enter mountain time zone, and promptly lose an hour. 😦  There are a couple things I need to pick up at Fry’s so I exit at Fortuna Road. The Shell station next door has a dump station and is my next stop.  The fee is a very reasonable $5.00.  When leaving camp I had gone west two miles on I-8 to the rest stop which has potable water and filled my fresh water tank. So I am set for my next camp. Read More

January 29 to February 10

 

I’m running low on staple grocery items, so Monday morning I hitch up and head for Yuma.  Yuma has a resident population of close to 100,000.  It has a nice selection of stores, restaurants, etc. When the winter snowbirds arrive, there are about 300,000 people in the area. Read More

Chilling Out Back at Kofa

Thursday, January 25

This morning I bid farewell to my friends Scott and Cindy as we depart our camp in Quartzite for our next destinations.  I am headed south on Hwy 95 towards Yuma, but will stop back at Kofa NWR for a few days before hitting the city. Read More

Tuesday, January 9

After finishing up in Tucson I head west on I-8.  I’m bound for the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge to meet up with some members of the RVForum.net.  Kofa NWR is roughly 50 miles north of Yuma on Hwy 95.  It’s about 3pm when I get on the road, so I won’t make it there tonight. Read More

On Tuesday, January 2nd, I arrived at the Snyder Hill BLM area on the west side of Tucson.  I had a couple items I wanted to take care of on the Nash and to do some sightseeing around the Tucson area. Read More

My first stop in Florida was to visit my sister Cheryl in Marianna for a couple days.  There isn’t a whole lot to do there, but the Peanut Festival was going on in nearby Dothan, AL.  Read More
