Urban Camping

As we are winging it this winter, the last 4 nights found us in Mesa, AZ, on the outskirts of town. We were at Apache Wells RV Park, which is really a mobile home park with some RV sites. Hmmm, all the roads are paved...is this a campground??

Actually, it turned out to be pretty nice, with the exception that our site was on the perimeter, and there was a busy street behind us. Lots of amenities: pool, spa, tennis courts, exercise room, computer room, pool tables, etc. We even had a palm tree on our site! Temperatures ranged from mid-80's to mid-50's, calm to windy. All in all, quite a different experience - and there were lots of "old" people. I mean, white (or blue) hair and real wrinkley skin!! Jeez, Donna and I were the only baby boomers there, everyone else could have been our parents.

Our neighbor in the site next to us is a quilter, so Donna made an instant friend. She happened to mention that she worked in a quilt store on Saturdays, so Donna just had to check it out. This was the first quilt shop she had visited since we've been on the road, so she was in hog-heaven.

I spent 2-1/2 days cleaning the outside of the rig, only to have it rain yesterday (grumble, grumble).

Anyway, we're off again, stay tuned.


  1. Hi Rob,
    All the places you are talking about in AZ sounds very familiar. We lived in AZ for 5 years. Sounds like you are have a great time.
    Just get "get out of Dodge" (az) before the Habos (Dust storms) arrive.

  2. We will! Mid-March we're heading towards TX to become Texans!! Then we'll head NE to Indiana to get some warranty issues taken care of.


Tell us what you think!
