North Ranch is EMPTY!!

I do believe we are about the only ones still here.

For you that have been here to North Ranch RV Park near Congress, AZ., you will recognize this campground. This is about as empty as I've ever seen it. Just a week or so ago, it was FULL to the brim.

Folks have sure begun to head for their Summer places. Some a little early maybe,,,,,,,like those in Rapid City, SD right now, where they got 12" + of SNOW last week end. From what I hear it was quite a blizzard! Blowing, blinding snow, I-90 was CLOSED. Big snow drifts all over the place.......... NO THANKS!!!! We have been enjoying 50-60 deg nights and 75-85 days. Now why would anyone want to leave that??? That's near perfect weather....

We will be here about another week. Lots to do before we leave. It's quite a job getting things all buttoned up before we can hit the road. More than you would think. For the first 5-6 years of our RV'ing, we could pick up and leave any place in a heart beat! But when you have a lot, with a storage shed, an extra refrigerator to clean out, things including an ATV to prepare for storage, it takes a while. Of course, we don't move as fast as we used to!!! Wonder why that is??

We're anxious to get to Scott and Ann's place in Lincoln, NE. It will be so GOOD to see them and help with some of the spring work they have. They have had a tough winter!!!! Scott's a real trooper or he wouldn't have made it. He is still having problems with the battle that Leukemia dealt him. But he keeps up the long, hard fight. It's been over 7 months now that his world was shattered. His life has been totally changed. It suddenly became a fight to survive. He took it on day by day and with his great companion and loving wife Ann, they have come a long, long way. I know it's been a long and tough battle. Not over yet, but I am real proud of the progress he has made.

Keep up with Scott's progress at this Caringbridge web site:

Help us keep cheering him on,,,leave him a note. Tell him I sent you!!! Did I mention I am VERY proud of him!!!! There will be a Pancake feed in his Honor in Lincoln on May 31st. I'll be there flippin' cakes!!! If you in the area, please come!!! (Unitarian Church)

Next week we may see you from out on the road,,,somewhere. Thanks for dropping by, stop back again!!!

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!!!


Friends and family of Scott and Ann invite you to a fundraiser......Saturday morning, May 31st from 7 am to 12 pm: Unitarian Church located at 6300 A Street, Lincoln. We will be hosting a pancake feed with a free will donation and silent auction to help Scott and Ann with expenses. Scott was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia on October 4th, 2007. He received a bone marrow [stem cell] transplant from his oldest brother in early February. The medical expenses continue to grow at a staggering rate.
We hope Scott will feel up to joining us to meet and greet. Any questions or if you would like to help, contact Jean [Scotts' mom] at phone 402-489-2553, cell 402-440-5048 or
