Paul and Nancy’s New Van….


Our good friends and long time neighbors here at North Ranch RV Park near Congress, AZ. have been looking for a small “B” Van.   After looking at several over the Winter, they were about to give up when Paul saw one in the Phoenix newspaper that interested him.  Low and behold, it was what he wanted and he tendered an offer to the private party sellers. After some hesitation the seller decided to let it go.

FINALLY, Paul and Nancy had found just what they were looking for.   Take a look at the above slideshow and see the beautiful Van they came driving home. (click on the black border at the bottom of the picture and you can restart the slideshow) It is in real good shape and is very clean.  Paul took it in to his local mechanic and had it checked from bumper to bumper. The mechanic suggested a few minor items, which Paul had him take care of and it should be no problem in making their planned trip back East to Pennsylvania this summer/   Hot Dog...they are going to stop and visit us in Custer, SD on their way home.   That’s wonderful!!!

Speaking of Custer SD, (our 2ND home) can you believe our departure date is only 3 weeks away!!!  Ah, yes and I’m getting anxious.  I’m already starting to plot the trip and plan the departure procedures  Three weeks goes by real fast but so much can’t be done until just a few days before we leave.  North Ranch is again almost deserted….

This is the Campground at North Ranch, which has some 110 RV sites. Most of you know that these campsites are almost all full or at least 75% full most of the Winter. It is about the same way in the residential and private lots at North Ranch, although there are several folks that stay here year around, including Paul and Nancy. It’s getting a little lonely around here….a "Ghost Town"…..but it sure is quiet and peaceful.

I slipped up to the Club House the other day and took a picture of Ms. Pat and her line dancing class.  There are still a few gals here but the class is getting smaller and smaller.

Safe Travels and Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there!!

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!

Thanks for stopping by……….come on back Wednesday.

Good heavens look at that campground. I have never seen it like that before, but then I have never been there after March 31, because the grandkids beckon grandma too hard. Gotta get home. She could never full time.... ever!

The van looks good. We have friends with a Winnebago Rialto, which is the same idea. They just love it for traveling around.

That's a nice little van. Sure does look tiny though compared your big rig!

I always have a place in my heart for those Class B Vans. Had a couple of camper vans many years ago & just loved them. Traveled to Canada's east coast one time by myself in a Volkswagon Westfalia & it still stands as one of the best trips I've ever had.
