Jan 25, 2018 - To Arizona & Back

Finally got the air horn issue fixed and got ready to leave on January 21st. We were delayed 1.5 hrs due to air bag leveling not working. There is always something to go wrong, but it wasn't bad. We finally left for Hope AZ, which is about 30 miles past Quartzsite. We found out that some friends from Oregon were camped there for the winter, so decided to go there and see them, and make a trip into Quartzsite to shop. As usual we stopped at Ehrenberg for cheap diesel fuel and quick lunch at Subway. From Quartzsite to Hope we were amazed at...

Dec 11, 2015 - Postcard 14

December 11-12, 2015 Road Trip Journal: Postcard 14 Leaving Odessa later that we wanted to. The hotel had a great breakfast, so we lingered a littler longer for that second cup of coffee.

The Saguaro cactus were quite majestic against...

Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, some nice Mexican people bring us fresh veggies and stuff. Six miles west, 50 miles east of the border with California, lies Hope. (Fifty years ago 2 cousins bought a couple of hundred acres to the north and south of route 60, and the rest is forgotten.) Here is Hope, with both houses, a Shell gas station, a church, and the RV resort....

Nov 1, 2007 - End of the Trail - Our lot in Hope, AZ

Not that we were eager in getting moving this morning - but we were ready for the road before 9 am. We were breaking camp at the same time our neighbors next door were and I mentioned our lot. Their friends are looking for a more permanent place so I found a travel card and put some info on it. Anyway, one thing led to another and, with conversation, we didn't get on the road until 10. But the trip was uneventful. I love taking I-8 out to Gila Bend and then cutting across to I-10. It misses all the Phoenix traffic. I spent most of my time...
