Slid Into Homebase & On Deck

Here we are, back from whence we came…Arizona.  

It’s good to be back amongst the familiar.  

The journey home was awesome and other than a rainy evening and following morning in Colorado we were blessed with clear skies and open roads.

Here’s an interesting tale …. While parked in Rapid City, SD for a few days we discovered that the couple in a 5th wheel next to us had passed through Whitefish Lake State Park and we had helped them with other campground options since we were booked.  The only reason I remembered them is because they own property in Prescott and that’s what started our longer than usual conversation in Whitefish.  Serendipity at its finest!

Now is a time for catching up with family & friends, stocking up on food supplies, attending to small in-house repairs and motorhome maintenance.  
I’m grateful for this months’ break from volunteer work and having a bit more time to get caught up with my internet job work and especially for the bonus of kickin' back for a spell.

I’m really looking forward to being in the Tucson area this winter & especially living in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains.  There are miles and miles of hiking trails and the desert in the winter is a wonder in itself to behold.  AND….. how we’ve missed AUTHENTIC Mexican food!!!  Montana has its spectacular mountains, lakes and rivers…but sorely lacks a good Mexican restaurant!  

So, we’ve survived the top of the 1st inning in Montana, taking a 7th inning stretch and soon to be stepping up to bat in the heart of the Great American Southwest.  

adiós por ahora  (Spanish for good-bye for now)
