Here we are at North Ranch Escapee RV Park in Congress, AZ.

We pulled into North Ranch RV Park at Congress, AZ Monday just as predicted at 3:45pm.  I told our friends and neighbors, Paul and Nancy Wilson, that we would be there by Happy Hour, Lord willin'! Praise the Lord, he was willin' and we were right on time. We had a great trip up from way down in South Texas. The weather was perfect all the way. The truck and all the equipment worked great.

Yesterday we got settled in and setup on our lot. This was the first RV lot we purchased way back in March of 2001, 9 years ago. We love the way the property backs up to the wide open spaces of the BLM desert. We came here several winters before we purchased the lot and stayed in the Campground.  
Right across the street from us is this beautiful desert garden area. It is maintained by several of our neighbors.

One of the first things I did yesterday was get the Polaris Sportsman 500 ATV out, uncover it and get it ready to roll!! I'm charging the battery now and hope to have it up and running soon.

Poor little Ms Megabyte2...all this commotion just gets to her. She doesn't like all the noise and can't understand what is happening.  We don't travel enough for her to get used to it.   This is the sleeper in our Volvo truck and she quickly found a little ledge under the booth table. She would not come out of there at all the first two days while we were in motion. The third day she would come out when we stopped, but the minute we started up, back to her secret hide-a-way she would go.  Yesterday, all day, she was SOOOO HAPPY to be stationary again. I truly think she remembered this place. She was happy as a lark! She would run from window to window to check things out and wanted to play all day. This was her first home after leaving Texas last winter.

It's a GREAT WEEK!!

Thanks for stopping by........come on back Sunday.

Love that garden area across from you, and backing up to the desert is delightful. When we lived in Montana, we had 20 acres of pine trees surrounded on three sides by National Forest land, and the fourth side was a triangle that we unused, so we were really in a snug little clearing all by ourselves. Snowy mountain peaks peeking over the lower range directly in front of our place. You and we have a great life!

You seem to have a great little spot there in the desert, Mike. That garden across the street is sure nice too. Glad to see Ms. Megabyte is enjoying it too!

Glad to hear that you and Ms Pat made it safe. We should be seeing you all around the 20th.

Hi Mike & Pat... I love your location now and what a bonus to have such a beautiful garden to view. We are on the move and finally away from the snow... We have landed in Waco, TX and are making our way down to San Antonio then up through Arizona then onto New Mexico... From there we'll start our climb up to your neck of the woods in Custer... I will be looking forward to meeting you both! Have FUN & travel safe!

Our little furballs don't like all the rocking and rolling down the highway either! One or the other is always leaning over to the front seat and giving me kisses....as if to say..."are we there yet...are we?"
