Last week at Canyon Vistas...route planned

It's hard to believe that we've been here at Canyon Vistas RV Resort in Gold Canyon, AZ for almost 4 months. Time flies when you're having fun and we sure have had some fun. There have been so many things to do here. Hiking, Pickleball, Line Dancing, Happy Hours, Dances and making some great friends. As I said in another recent post, we've reserved 4 months next winter from Nov. 1 to Feb 1. I feel strongly that we could one day settle here in AZ, in Gold Canyon and Canyon Vistas. Of course we have many more places to go and things to see and do but this certainly feels good here.

This week will be filled with packing up. checking systems, re arranging and finalizing our tentative route east and north. In addition to that, our younger daughter, Sommer, is coming to visit just before we leave. We're looking forward to spending some time with her and her girlfriend from Indiana. What she calls a girls vacation. With our son, Chris, living in Mesa, she'll have a place to stay and someone to show her around the area after we are on our way to Kartchner Cavern SP.

It's hard to leave a place where you've made so many friends and had so much fun but that's why they put wheels on our rig. Time to move on and see some new places and meet old and new friends. The weather today was somewhat cloudy, some rain and wind. Sort of strange for this time of year here and the weather forecast is for rain on Sunday when we leave. We're keeping our fingers crossed that we can make our get away between showers.

Our plan is to stay at as many State Parks, Army COE parks as we can and do some CAMPING along with some RV parks. We will be hugging the gulf coast through Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and the panhandle of Florida until mid April after making our way out of AZ and through New Mexico. We hope that the weather up north will moderate enough to begin moving north to IL and back in Bloomington/ Normal by the end of April. That's what's so great about this lifestyle, it's flexible. Ok, on with the adventure.

  1. What a great year you've had. We are looking forward to seeing you in NM! I sure hope the weather gets better. We're stuck in the 20s with light snow and a little ice here in Carlsbad.

    1. Hi Debbie, Yes it has been a good year. Yours has been a good one too from what I see on your blog. We've really enjoyed the weather in AZ. We are looking forward to NM and getting together. Glad we're staying south a while longer though. Been watching the weather...sorry to here you're in the cold. Hoping things will warm up soon. Be safe.

  2. Glad to have been reading of all your adventures but don't be in too much of a rush to head back home. As Debbie said it's surprisingly cold in NM but that's how most of the northern states are as well. With the Great Lakes being as frozen over as they are we'll be having a late start to Spring up there.
    Hopefully we'll get a chance to see you at the RV Dreams Reunion in NC at the end of May.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Rick and Kathy, We have had some great times so far here in AZ. I have been watching the weather and we will adjust our travel to the weather. No need to be north until Mid May for Dr appts. Should be decent by then. Plans in Jello

    1. Faye N Dave, Thanks for the well wishes. Cold weather in TX is a good reason to come to AZ next winter. We plan to be close to Corpus Christi as we travel east so we will keep in touch as we get closer.
