Casinos

P1010102 

The evening before we left Yuma we went out with our friends to a local pizza joint. Although I would not call this place a joint. It was quite nice inside, and it had wonderful pizza, and cold beer!

The morning we exited, this guy was hanging just outside of Debbie’s rig. She was in Mexico at the time.

We traveled back east to Maricopa and the Ak-Chin Casino, which is just south of Phoenix. Along the way, we weighed the rig. We weighed 12800 lbs with full water and 7/8ths tank of gas. The Jeep weighed 3580, heavier than I thought. Maximum weight is 14050, so we are doing very well weight-wise. This is a cool statue near the entrance of the casino. RVs can normally park at casinos for free, albeit a bit noisy at times. The casino may provide free Internet, which was the case at Ak-Chin.

One of reasons we stopped here was to visit with Carla’s cousin, Thesie and John. They full-time in a Newmar rig at Apache Junction through the winter. Just think if I had John’s hair!

We try to do at least 45-60 minutes of brisk walking every other day, and this is what we found on the other side of the hotel. Underground homes for burrowing owls.

They were in attendance too! His/her mate was nearby.

Our youngest grandson’s birthday, Asa was the 22nd. We were delighted to check in during his first birthday party via Skype. He was having a great time, and why not? He was surrounded by great woman, and his Dad was cooking! He is SOO cute and already a chick magnet. This is casino stop #2, except in Tucson. We like Tucson and especially this casino, being our first time here. It has a HUGE RV parking lot, fairly level and little noise. No free Internet access though, but what the heck. It is very nice.

Our friend Jim likes Foretravel Class A rigs. He and many others consider Foretravels to be the best Class A’s built. This one is something else.

At least 400 if not 600 watts of solar power. Probably motorized so that the owner does not have to climb up on the roof. Anybody hazard a guess on the cost of this rig?
