We left the Redmond Fairgrounds RV park on the 5th or October and went to Coachmasters in Bend to have a couple of things done to the motorhome before we headed south for the winter. One of the things was to check out our large awning. It needed a motor replacement and they informed us that it would take several days to get the motor in. We decided to wait until we got to Apache Junction before we would have it fixed since they told us it would be OK to travel. Well, we got 2 miles down the highway and a gust of wind caught it and it extended fully on the Bend Parkway. I managed to get the motorhome pulled over and out of the traffic. Coachmasters came and got it rolled back up, zip tied and back to their lot we went. They were able to overnight a replacement motor in and the new one was installed the next day. We spend one more night in their lot and left early on the 7th to start our journey south.
Our 1st night out was spent at the Bordertown RV resort. Nothing fancy about this place but just a real convenient overnight spot. Waking up the next morning, there was frost on the window of the car, so we knew we had to get out of there and quick, so buttoned everything up and headed to Terribles Lakeside RV Resort in Pahrump for the next 3 nights. (Now the weather is starting to get nicer).
After Pahrump, we were on our way to Yuma, but at the last minute, we decided to go to Lake Havasu for a couple of days before heading on. Now the weather is getting downright perfect. Yesterday it was in the triple digits and cools down to 70 at night. Perfect for me, but not for Cheryl. We'll leave today and make the long trek to Yuma (2 1/2 hours) and spend the next 4 days there.
Stay tuned for updates.
