We will likely be there the 23rd or 24th. 

Our trip is 17th lv park get to Bozeman, 18th Ogden, 19th FIllmore or a little south, 20 maybe Goodyear if we push a bit,  couple days with son then Tucson.

Son just built a home there, we need to hang with him a bit. 

From Tucson, start heading north.

Jim, Rt 60 is one we would prefer to avoid, but it means we can stop at Peg & Dons going that way.  We did 60 last year and the Salt River descent was a bit 'cringy', Jolene made me promise not to take her through it again.

We tried to sign up a week ago and they're filled.  On the day Jerry called the wait list had 42 names.  We figured there probably would not be that many cancellations so didn't add our name.  So, if you haven't already made your reservation, the likelihood of attending is not very good.

Don,

I wondered if you found them.;D ;D I just purchased four more hoping I would not forget them again. Left the last one in Yuma the last time we were there! I'm beginning to think this traveling is meant for younger minds.  :) :)

It turns out, just by chance, that we will be staying at Lazydays during this period for repairs, mods, oil change, etc.  I would imagine that if I wanted to attend the rally I would have to get a day (or more) pass, since we already have reservations.


I hope that we can meet some of you while we are there.

Larry,

We will be there along with the Brewers and Kuchs. I doubt you will need a pass to meet with the forum framily, only to attend any of the rally functions.  :) Hopefully, "Mom & Dad" of the QZ rally will be there as well. They are otherwise known as Fred & Daisy Thomas. I dubbed them "Mom & Dad" since they got many of us to venture west to begin a fabulous journey which is still ongoing.

Just for the official record, let me also acknowledge the fact that it was nice to meet, and break bread (or lobsters) with the Belikoffs, in spite of what Kim says about them in off the board e-mails. We're in 1410 until Tuesday.

I don't dare tell Pat about this as she is already counting the days till we get to Portland and a Red Lobster.  Closest one to us is ~150 miles away in Billings.  We are coming up in the world though as we now have an Olive Garden!  Can a Red Lobster be far behind?????????

I was having too much fun to make any posts during this rally.  Lazydays has been a wonderful venue for the FMCA area rally.  I've learned so much through  seminars on  FMCA MEmber benefits, Fire safety evacuation methods, and traveling in an RV in Europe.  I've met new friends.  I've enjoyed the camaraderie of  long time friends! Terry test drove a new  motorhome.  I've been fed a  fine breakfast with fluffy eggs every morning. I've been entertained each evening  with  local talent from Tucson!  I will top it all off with  donuts in the morning as a farewell.  It is always sad to  see a rally come to an end but on to plan the next event!

Thank you RVForum friends for enriching my life!

Larry,

Missed you and Kathy at Happy Hour tonight. Remember we'll be here until the 29th. Judy, where are you???

Sorry to see the rally end but had a great time. Dinner tonight with "Mom & Dad" Thomas. Without them we would not have been fulltiming for 15 years!! On the 29th of March we will start our trek back to Yellowstone with Pancake Bill. If any of you are in the area this summer, be sure to stop by the Park Store at Old Faithful and say hi. If we are not there, someone will know where we are at the time.

It was a Cornerstone by Entegra.  Yes it was fun.  Big engine, smooth ride.  Seemed like we were going to New Mexico on the drive.  Not quite the right one  for me.  He's quite a shopper!

Missing it by Thiis......> much!  We will arrive on Tuesday mid afternoon.  Looking forward to getting back in the motorhome!  Winter at Yellowstone was wonderful, and the past week travel in our little one was a blast, but time for a bathroom in the coach again, time for hookups. 

Plus while at LD, time for a nice soak in the hot pool.

We are now in Goodyear at our sons, went past Surprise and waved at the empty lots of friends, but today Jolene wanted to go to stores.  I got something, she got a cutting board.  Looked for other items, but nothing just right. 

Looks like more shopping.

BYTW, Valley of Fire SP, Thank you Wendy I think), was amazing, even have RV sites with W/E.  $30 a night, but wow, what a place to camp.  Hecl no hookups are 20 a night, again, what a place, and leaned a secret or two about getting there.

So, whoever will still be at LD Tues for a couple nights, we will be there soon. 

Oh, did you all go by ad say hello to our MH in storage?

We're in Scottsdale. Wave when you drive by.

I figured the Westie would like Valley of Fire. Sometimes nature is lots better than resorts.

It was so good seeing some of our very long time friends and meeting a few new ones.  It was such a treat for us to even get there.  We had a great time catching up with all of you again.
 Till next time......... :'(

...  We will arrive on Tuesday mid afternoon.  Looking forward to getting back in the motorhome!  ... Plus while at LD, time for a nice soak in the hot pool. ... So, whoever will still be at LD Tues for a couple nights, we will be there soon. 
...
We've never met, but would be glad to get together while you are here.  Please stop by 1599 and say hello.  I know Jim and Pat are still here. Jim, I don't remember where you are, can you point me in the right direction?

We have the 4 week dawdle time but not the itinerary.  My rig should be moved to a site in the morning, plugged in and fridge turned on. 

We should be there by mid to late afternoon.

We pull out in the morning.  We were lucky enough to have lunch with  Chuck and Marie (and Jim and Pat) to get the details of their purchase of  Ned and Lorna's lot in TX.  Our RVForum is such a small world.

 Then we had  a final Happy hour at Jim and Pat's.  I have a hard time saying  farewell to those we may not see for a long while so maybe we will  say good byes in morning.  Randy and Debbie are leaving in am too.  Sorry Bill and Jolene to miss you by such a  few hours.

Lazy Days has been such a good host for our rally both before an after the FMCA event.  This staff is exceptional in fulfilling  our every need, from the friendly guys in the   security booth to the wait staff in restaurant, good, happy people!

Sheila and I have nominated Randy for a follow up rally next year!

This has been a great time for us. To be with several of the original members of the QZ rallies is precious. Sad to see it end for this year and we hope we can do it again.

Daisy & Fred,

We really enjoyed our time with you both. I especially enjoyed my talks with Fred and will treasure the photo that Terry took of the two of us at breakfast.

Meeting with newer members was also a great joy. This Framily has grown far above what anyone could have imagined from its meager beginnings on Compuserve.

Larry, we are in site 1453, just up the road from Ken & Sheila's location.

We're not sure if we will ever be able to spend any  time in the Southwest in the future but will never forget the friendships bonded over simple rallies on the desert. Fred & Daisy opened up a whole new world for us with their first trip to QZ. It has been a heck of a ride since.

If anyone is coming to Yellowstone, be sure to look us up at the Park Store at the Old Faithful Visitor's Education Center. Pancake Bill & Jolene will also be there.

We will be leaving Goodyear about 10:30 to 11:30, probably stop at Ikea, east of the city, never been to one before and then on to Tucson.  My MH should be on site something? in the morning to allow fridge to come down to temp. 

Looking forward to seeing it again, it has been a while.

Bill,

Your coach is on site 1342, right across from the office. We're way over on site 1453. It looks like they have not leveled it but it is plugged in. We're on the patio now.  :)

Thanks Jim!  I asked them to put me near you guys if you were still here, did you veto that?  We were on that site in the fall, they must think we like it there.


It is OK, has nice grass along side.

We arrived this afternoon, changed sites from the nice one they assigned, got closer to Jim & Pat and the pool. 

Had a nice dinner at the clubhouse and relaxed aftwerwards.  Still need to find DakotaRed.  Morning, run to grocery store and stock up, Costco for a new TV and settle in, get ready for travel.

Sorry we missed the rally and all the framily, but family, son Justin was on the way with a newly built house to show off in Goodyear.

We look forward to you stopping by and saying hello.  Interesting your comment about the TV.  A couple of days ago I just got back from COSTCO and bought a new TV.  I would be glad to show you our choice.

We are heading there this morning.  What did you get?  I am looking for something around a 40"  Be tight on the dash, but I have one in Yellowstone to switch out to that fits perfect. 

After watching the 3d TV at our son's place, I am tempted to get one.

Well back from shopping, took a lot out of me.  Well my checking account anyway.  We bought a 42" Vizio.  Looked at everything there, tempted by the 3d, but while it is cool, there are only so many movies we watch, and that needed the 3d blu-ray.    Got a regular blu-ray, I guess it was time.  Our son gave us a couple extra dvd's he got wen he bought the 3d versions.  Testing system with the Cirque de Soleil World we watched on 3d the other night.  My DVR is not HD, so we are fine.

Now to find what Dakota got.

This is our last day at Lazydays. We leave tomorrow and will travel to Camp Verde to visit with Don & Peg before continuing our trip north to Yellowstone.

I'm a little sad to leave Tucson as there is so much to see and do in the area. We did quite a bit and I have attached photos of San Xavier del Bac, the White Dove in the desert. It is a Spanish Mission that was founded in 1692.

Yesterday we decided to visit the first Spanish Mission in Arizona at Tumacacori. Both of these trips were with Pancake Bill and Jolene. Here are a few photos of the Mission that was founded in 1691. It is not in current use but they do celebrate two Masses each year, one of which is held outside due to the large number of people attending.

Thanks for the invite to Spring Branch. At least we know how to get there. :D :D

The 3 day rally that never ends.   :P


As usual Jim, great pictures.  When we made our plans to be here at Lazydays this month, we didn't even know about the rally.  We ended up getting a couple of day passes to the rally, and spending money getting the see-level gauges installed.  We also met a lot of nice people while we were here including those of this forum.  It was wonderful to meet everyone and hope to see all of you in the near future.  Some of you we will see soon either in Moab, or when we visit Yellowstone.


Jim, Pat, Bill and Jolene - have a safe trip!  We will be leaving next weekend for Flagstaff.  I like the current temps here in Tucson, and am not looking forward to the 15 degree drop facing us.  We are looking forward to the beautiful scenery we've heard so much about though.

Larry,

It was great to meet you and Kathy. Glad we could spend a little time together. I, too, hated to leave Tucson as there is so much to do. We are in Camp Verde and the temps are still very warm. Maybe it won't be so bad when you reach Flagstaff! 

We'll see you in Yellowstone soon.

Camp Verde was indeed very warm, but the overnight we had about 2 inches of snow!  I found it hard to believe as well, it likely won't last long.  Probably only until you check the date today.
