John and Sandy's RV Adventure Journal

Arizona

Winslow, AZ

     We were up and on the road by 6am. We are traveling about 370 miles today to Meteor Crater RV Park near Winslow AZ. We got in and set up by early afternoon.
     After regrouping, we headed to Winslow so we could be “Standin on the Corner in Winslow Arizona”, that was the first song the Eagles released and was written by Jackson Browne. We stopped at the visitors center and Bob was very informative on the area and stuff to do.
     Then we took a walk along the Santa Fe Railroad path and stopped at the totem pole and then at the old caboose and Santa Fe rail cars. We walked to Rt 66 and the Standin on the corner park and mural. Now we walked to the La Posada Hotel. This is a refurbished Fred Harvey Hotel from back in the 60’s. We walked around the gardens then inside. Back in the 60’s it was a big thing to have social areas, so there are lots of little areas you can sit and play games or relax. Also one of the new owners, Tina Mion is an artist with paintings and sculptures. However, most of her paintings carry a dark weird theme to them. Some are kinda scary.
     It’s Friday night in Winslow, so we walked to Bojo’s Grill and Sports Bar for a cocktail. It’s really only a grill with a TV and small counter that is the bar. They had a fish fry tonight so we decided on that and then headed home.


Mesa Az

Today is our pre-departure day. We have been here a month and the wind has changed and it’s time for us to hit the road again. We have had a great time and got to visit and party with lots of great friends.

      This morning our Gambles Quail family visited again. We are heading out soon and won’t see the kids grow up. So far their doing great.  We did a few projects and then some reading and relaxing.
In the afternoon we headed over to Patti and Jeff’s.  We had some cocktails at their place before going to Szechwan dinner. After dinner we said our “See you laters”. We will miss all our friends, but we are RV Gypsies and must be movin on.

We did some projects and shopping this morning. Then we headed to O’Kelly’s Bar for some betting on the ponies. We got home early and just relaxed.
