Well, as of Monday, I'm unemployed. Got RIF'd, but interestingly, they are bringing me back Monday on a four week contract. In the meantime I'm looking for a longer term gig. I got a feeling that I'm looking at after the first of the year. Means trip to Arizona this winter is up in the air.
You might check out wordpress.com. Wordpress is the 800 lb. gorilla of the blogging software, as it gets stretched in a lot of directions, and wordpress.com is their hosted site. We use wordpress self-hosted so I don't know anything about their hosted site.
We lost power last night from about 10:30 to about 3:00 am. Turns out the house batteries don't seem to have enough oomph to turn over the generator. Had to start the big cat to get the power for that. Don't look forward to replacing those batteries.
Bob, to answer you question, we plan to leave here on January 20th. With a couple days at the Country Coach factory in Junction City, plan to get to Yuma on about Monday the 27th or possibly the 28th, depending on when we get done in Junction City, and what weather we have to deal with going over the Siskiyous. We have reservations in Apache Junction on that Saturday, February 1st, so we have five or six days in Yuma.
Unless you have a spot on your site at the time, we'll probably plan on spending the time at Yuma Lakes again.
Bob, and Sue, sometimes it seems if it weren't for bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all! Sorry to hear about your son. Hope all is well quickly.
We're all doing fine here. Went to Deception Pass with the family last week, and had a good time. We were clearly the biggest rig in the park, although there was a fifth wheel that must have been close to our size.
Linda, I had no idea. In retrospect, there may have been indications, if I knew what was going on, but nothing at the time. I really didn't believe it. The cardiologist actually used the word microscopic, so I'm in good shape.
Bob, Nikki says to say is was close on the hospital thing for her. The SIM card in my phone died while in Bellingham, so I'd had to borrow someone else's phone to call her. Since it was an unfamiliar number, she didn't answer, so I had to leave a message.
Ron, if I retired, I wouldn't be enjoying the coach for long, as the money would run out very quickly. Good to hear about Bob and Holly. Sorry that he has to give it up.
David, sorry to hear you're on the unemployment line again. YOu guys still moving down to Lake Pleasant in August? Also sorry to hear about Laura's accident. That sounds scary and painful.
What an exciting week. Nikki went over to her mother's house in Kennewick a couple weeks ago, for a 12 day stay. Then last Sunday I went up to Bellingham to visit my Mom for a few days. Tuesday evening, late, while up there, I had a very minor heart attack. Fortunately, Bellingham has good cardiac specialists and an excellent Cardio Vascular Unit. So Wednesday morning I had a heart Catheterization and two stents placed. So now I get to get used to lots of new drugs and some lifestyle changes.
But imagine Nikki's excitement, when she got a semi-coherent voicemail Wednesday morning saying I had a heart attack. :(
Came home Thursday, and we're doing fine now.
Have sent two email requests for reservations vfor the 2014 RALLY no response from the campground
LostinAZ, you will probably have to call the park for reservations. Be sure to tell them that you are coming with the RV Dot Net rally, and be prepared to tell them what spot you want. The first post on this topic should show what spots are still available in the sites we have set aside.
Look forward to seeing you there!
We're not quite home, yet, but I have to say that Califirnia has maintained its reputation as having the worst roads in the west, and Nevada still has the best. Arizona's seem to have deteriorated in the last two years, with I-40 west of Flagstaff being quite rough.
Jon, we probably passed each other this morning. We spent last night in Twin Falls, and came on to Baker City today. Another 150 some miles into Kennewick tomorrow, where we'll spend the rest of the week with Nikki's mom.
We wimped out and revised our plans last minute due to snow. Provo was supposed to snow today, and possibly tomorrow, when we'd be coming through those mountains between Price and Provo. So we headed west. Boulder City NV tonight, Ely NV tomorrow. Cold there too, but no snow.
Bob, that's not a bad idea. Although I'm trying to figure out where to artach a magnet to the cloth top or plastic bumper. I'd also have to give up my play day today to do that. I don't think Nikki wants to do that.
Well, Camping World determined that the problem with lights between the coach and the Jeep is a bad circuit board. So of course they have no replacement, it has to come from Country Coach. So Nikki is driving the car back while I drive the coach.
Not sure what the temperature is, but at 7:20 am I'm sitting outside in shorts and tee shirt. Quite comfortable!
Thanks for the good word on route 191 through Utah. I'd figured it was pretty good, Moab is in that road, after all.
Jon, we'll be almost passing each other on the freeway, as we travel north, leaving here a week from today.
We're planning on traveling from Holbrook AZ through Blanding UT and on to Provo in our 40 ft Motorhome pulling our Jeep. Are there any issues with that road that I should be aware of?
Also, is diesel readily available?
