January 9 – 10, 2012 Travel to Yuma

After saying goodbye to Lynne and Fred, we left our little spot in Casa Grande and headed west.  We stopped for gas and then at a parking area where we changed drivers.  Yep, I drove all the way to Yuma Lakes, where we are staying with Bill and Shelly until next Monday.   I am slowly getting more comfortable behind the wheel and hopefully will get better in different situations.

What is really different is seeing the scenery from the driver’s seat vs. the passenger seat.  We have been this way many times in the past few years but it almost seems new to me.   (I guess I am paying much more attention to the details – LOL.)  But the downside is that there is no pictures - Crying   Bummer.

Anyway, we are parked in the Redondo Area of Yuma Lakes and sat out until well after dark.  The weather is beautiful and it was just great being outside.

This morning, Shelly and I did some shopping at Wal-Mart and then this afternoon, we went to Boomer Happy Hour in the Foothills, hosted by Sharon and Ron.  It was great to see some old friends and meet some new ones.  We hope to see many of them in Quartzsite next week.

Back at Yuma Lakes, I was able to get touch base with other Boomer friends, Wendy, Vince, Glenda, and Don before they headed out to Quartzsite.

Over the next few days, we expect to go to Mexico, the various marketplaces and flea markets, and some sightseeing so stay tuned.

Stats for today:

Miles Traveled: 168 Miles

Routes Traveled:

Arizona: Montgomery Road E;  I-8 East; Fortuna Road; AZ-95 South; South Laguna Dam Road; County 6th Street; Yuma Lakes Resort

Good for you to drive the rig (I drive ours too) ... every woman should learn to drive their RV in case of emergency, or just to spell their hubbies a bit and let them enjoy the view from the passenger seat!

Steve likes getting to see and look at things for longer than a glance when in the passenger seat.
