Somehow, a whole month has slipped by. We changed our plans and skipped going to Silver City. Instead, we dropped down through Alamogordo, past White Sands (without stopping, this time) and back to an Interstate highway at Las Cruces. We spent a night each at Escapees parks in Deming NM and Casa Grande so that our last day on the road was a short one through metro Phoenix and on to Paula and Tom’s place on the north side.
We have just been sitting here with no major sightseeing or work going on. Bob has taken the time for a couple of motorcycle rides, but there is not much in the way of scenery in the metro area. A rider has got to get way out of town to find much good riding and the traffic is terrible; not bad, just inconsiderate and at least 10 mph over the posted limits.
Pam and Ron have moved down to their winter home, about ½ hour away so we’ve seen them a couple of times. Ron has loaned quite a few paperbacks, so we have done a lot of reading.
Our loafing is about to come to an end. Friday morning we will meet with the pastor of a church in suburban Youngtown AZ for the first time. We will learn what repairs they would like to have us do over the next 3 weeks. Later that day we will move the rig to a different church who are allowing us to park in their back yard. The project started out with 4 RVs registered to work here, but 2 had to drop out leaving just us and one other couple. We may have some last minute additions, but that’s not too likely. We will get as much done as we can with the people we have. Usually it is more than our hosts really expected from us. We will see if we can surprise them.
