Made it to Why, AZ and happy to be here.

Even though we had lots to do in Yuma a week there is more than plenty of time. 

By yesterday I’d just had it with all the noise from cars, planes, trains etc.  It makes me feel like a hamster on a wheel in a cage.  Not good.

Yuma in the rain.

Much nicer in the sun but still not very warm. 

Eric and I did take a drive out to the Foothills and there are some quiet places to park if you are going to stay here for any length of time. 

In the end everything was done, even the washing and I was ready to get out of Dodge.

Today is our oldest grandchild Holly’s 16th birthday.  I called her at 7:30 am this morning to wish her a happy birthday and it sure was nice to hear her voice.  She is a sweet, funny, compassionate, smart, talented….okay, okay…you get it, oh and she’s pretty too!

This was taken last summer at the Smither’s Fair.  We had a lot of fun.

I always tell her she’s my favorite oldest grandchild…and she just laughs and says “Gramma I’m your only oldest grandchild…I told you she was smart!”

Pretty and a lot quieter than the planes. 

Today we were out of the Arizona Sands RV park and on the road by a rousing 10:30 am…not far to go and not in a hurry to get there.  We stopped for lunch just south of Gila Bend. We were set up and parked by 3:30 pm in the Hickiwan RV park which is just east of Why on highway 86.  $18 a night, free internet, showers (not the best) and a beautiful view and for the most part except for a little traffic noise it’s dead quiet.  The internet repeater in the park is down but our trusty Yagi antennae dragged in the signal all the way from the office at the other end of the park.  We have been using it regularly as it boosts the signal even when the park antennas are right next to us.  Makes it work like high speed.  A really good investment.

We’ll stay here a couple of nights and then head into Mexico.

We were about a half hour behind you leaving Yuma. It was pretty good there this year, a little rain but none of the wind Yuma is famous for. It is good to be on the road.
