Routing Our Way. . .

Jan and I started talking this morning about our upcoming travels, so my checklist got put aside for the day so we could plot out our route, or at least get a better handle on it.

Jan and I both had seen someone’s post on FB about how they weren’t able to get in the Las Vegas Thousand Trails in the upcoming months. So our first step was to book us there for two weeks starting April 8th. And luckily, we had no problem.

At least not there.

Next we tried to book the two weeks before Vegas at one of our favorite parks, one we’ve never had trouble getting into, Verde Valley. But of course now we had problems.

They were totally booked from the 3/25 to 4/08, so that was out., But of course I had a backup plan, and that was the Countryside Encore RV park in Apache Junction, where we’ve stayed a number of times before. But not this time.

This time I ran into something I had not encountered before. We would be going from the Voyager Encore park in Tucson to Countryside, and we quickly  found out we can’t do that.

Voyager, Countryside, as well as the Golden Sun Encore park,  also in Apache Junction, are all considered ‘one’ park, so you can not go directly one to another without a week out. News to us.

So now we’re booked into the Santa Fe RV park, also in Apache Junction, for  two weeks under Passport America. We’ve stayed here before with Nick and Terry and found it a very nice park.

After Vegas we’ve got a week booked at Soledad Canyon north of Los Angeles. It’s been a few years since we’ve done LA, and we’re looking forward to it again.

After that we’ll head north up I-5 working our way toward two weeks at the Bend/Sunriver Thousand Trails. I had planned for  us to spend one night at the Turtle Beach Fish Camp TT along the way, but they didn’t have an opening. So I’ll keep checking back or we’ll just find a park along the way.

We don’t yet have the rest quite nailed down yet, but we’ll be back at Colorado River again starting June 25th, just in time for our big family reunion.

Jan and I have been catching up on TV shows that we recorded while we were gate guarding. And one of those is Grimm.

We’re about halfway through the last season of 13 shows, and we’re really going to miss it. It’s a great show, with both great writing and effects, and it will be interesting to see how they wrap it up.

Tomorrow we’re heading down to Pearland to have lunch with Bonnie, a former co-worker of Jan’s, and then stop by at our daughter Brandi’s for some Amazon packages.
