Apache Junction, AZ High 79 Low 57
Just not really blog worthy.
Spike has donned his Halloween duds for the big night.
We spent all day Friday with Dianna looking at travel trailers and a truck to pull it with. We found a travel trailer she really likes but she had to give up her ideas of what would pull it. The salesman just kind of chuckled when she told him she wanted a Honda Pilot.
So we then headed out to look at trucks. Many hours later she drove home in a brand new 2013 Chevy Avalanche. What a beautiful truck that is. Jim and I are both drooling all over it.
Now she has to wait awhile to buy the trailer but maybe by January so she can join us in Q for her maiden voyage. Might as well start her out boondocking before she knows any better.
We also got to meet up with a fellow Escapee. He posts on the forum as Ranger and Jin. His name is Steve and Jin is his service dog. A beautiful border collie with one brown eye and one blue eye.
Steve suggested we meet at an Irish Pub in Tempe. Had some of the best corned beef and cabbage ever. Dianna joined us and we all sat and talked for a couple of hours. Steve will be in the area for a couple of months so we will be getting together with him again.
Jim had more tests on his leg on Thursday and we see the doctor on Monday afternoon to find out what the results are.
Took a couple of pretty sunset pictures.
We had a cold front move through. Got down to 57 last night and will again tonight. The days are in the 70’s. A little too cool for me but I know most of you will laugh about that. Going to start warming up tomorrow and we’ll be back in the 90’s next week. I’m still looking for those elusive 80’s.
That’s about it from here.
We know busy, not doing much but busy, busy, busy.ReplyDelete
Talking of corned beef and cabbage set my taste buds to watering. As a confirmed full-timer I really do understand the 70's being a little too cool.ReplyDelete
Looks like a great truck, we are waiting and praying for good news on Jim's leg. Give the pups a pet for us. Sam & Donna....ReplyDelete
Good plan getting Dianna started off on the right boondocking foot:))ReplyDelete
Jepp, we are curious to meet Dianna somewhere this winter. Hope all goes well with "THE LEG".ReplyDelete
How has the fishing been going?ReplyDelete
Nice of you to help Diana. I think some salesmen think women are stupid. I had some tell me I could pull anything with my Jeep. I was not comfortable with the combination (even though it was an ultra lite trailer)--there was a world of difference with the truck--even if white hair looks comical in a 3500 Dodge Ram! I like never having to worry about going up and down hills. As one man put it on one of the RV groups, my trailer is like a flea on its bumper.ReplyDelete
I'm hoping for an excellent report about Jim's leg. I will get a call next week about the next step in my saga. Certainly not what I expected at this point.
Love your sunset pictures, OK, and I really like your temperatures!ReplyDelete
We understand busy too. Sometimes we're so busy but don't feel there is blogging material. We're very busy getting ready.ReplyDelete
Those sunset photos are outstanding! Waiting for tests and results can drive a sane person over a cliff! Jim and you are in our prayers.ReplyDelete
Sounds like your having a nice visit..ReplyDelete
glad you are enjoying yourselves!..corned beef?..okay but cabbage?..not so much!ReplyDelete
Glad Diane found a truck, that is our hang up right now. We found the 5th wheel we want but can't find the truck Paul wants.ReplyDelete
Prayers for Jim and the doctor's appt.
Spiffy looking new truck - hope it's got a nice, powerful engine for pulling a trailer!ReplyDelete
Great sunset photos.
You know how the weather in AZ works...it goes from 95 to 65 overnight, it forgets Fall. :(ReplyDelete
I like Spike!!ReplyDelete
That Avalanche isn't all that different than the pilot, except it will pull a lot more.. You didn't say what size of trailer Diana wants..Or where she plans to park it..ReplyDelete
Wow! Congrats to Dianna!ReplyDelete
That is so nice to be able to give advice to a newbie...and then corrupting her by introducing her into boondocking in Q! ;c)ReplyDelete
I have days when I wish nature would quit playing with the thermostat. Sometimes I like changing seasons but sometimes...ReplyDelete
Always good to buy the tow vehicle before the RV:)ReplyDelete
After a week of cool weather here, it's going back up to around 90 again. Yuk.ReplyDelete
Hope you get some answers from the doctors tomorrow. God Bless.ReplyDelete
