A Little Work, A Lotta Fun

 We’re getting settled into more of a routine now that we’ve reached Tucson.

Our refrigerator, that went out on us around the first of December, has been repaired.  We had All RV Service perform the repair.  The cooling system was covered under warranty and replaced after a new one showed up from California.  They removed the unit from the 5th wheel on Tuesday of last week and we returned  on Friday to have it re-installed.   It’s nice not to be living out of a cooler.

Final truck repairs from our fire mishap back in October are being completed today.  It turned out that both anti-lock brake sensors were smoked and not just the left one as we had assumed.  The story of our harrowing experience can be found  by clicking here.

Last Saturday we got together with Ken and Marilyn for some swimming and sun now that the weather has heated up a little here.  We met Ken and Marilyn at Ron’s RV in Lo de Marcos where they spent the winter.  They just arrived in Tucson on their way back to British Columbia.

We are very close to the Saguaro National Park and very old saguaro cacti can be found everywhere.  It takes a saguaro at least 65 years before it develops any arms.  More information can be found at http://www.nps.gov/sagu/


We were able to get this shot of an old town set that was used at a dude ranch. Click on picture to enlarge.


On Sunday, we traveled across town to the Diamond J RV Resort about 10 miles outside town off of the Ajo Highway.  We were invited to dinner with JoAnn and Doug, who are also full-timers, formerly from Florida, and also Montana 5th wheel owners.  The food was wonderful and we had a chance to talk a little Mexico, computers, and RVing.  We look forward to seeing JoAnn and Doug again at the Montana Rally in a couple of weeks.  They are fellow bloggers and their adventures can be found at “Living Our Dream.”   Thank you JoAnn and Doug for your hospitality.
