Boy, that’s what I’ve begun to wonder too! Seems like ages since we posted on this blog.
This week we spent three days at the Cactus Country RV Park on the eastern edge of Tucson. Rosie (our motorhome) hadn’t been on the road for a few months, and we have a two-week plus trip coming up. We wanted to be sure the old gal was in good shape, whether all her systems still work, and so on. (Suzy wants me to be sure to point out that the “old gal” we were checking out was the motorhome!)
Besides that, when we moved into the house (our park trailer) we scavenged a lot of stuff out of the motorhome for immediate use: dishes, our clothing, tools, computers, you name it. As we thought about it, we replaced some of the stuff, but we had to be sure we had everything necessary.
Turns out everything worked just right, and we found a couple of things we had to buy, The only problem we found was that our 50-amp power cord female end was badly charred! There’s been a problem somewhere, and I haven’t located it yet.
The male end has a little damage, but it’s still quite usable.
What about this Cactus Country RV Park? For our money (and it was half-price plus a surcharge for electricity), we’ll stay there again if we need to go to Tucson. Our site wasn’t too large, but the season hasn’t started yet, and we had plenty of empty spaces around us.
We were on the outer edge of the park, with open desert beyond us.
As the late afternoon sun descended, the mountains beyond displayed wonderful shadows!
What’s next for the LeRoys? If you are Escapees, you may have seen the article we wrote for the magazine. We wrote it months ago, and were surprised when friends told us it was in the September-October issue (pages 93-94). We were even more surprised a couple of weeks later when a nice check arrived in the mail!
Emboldened by this turn of affairs, we are contemplating a second article, time featuring Made in the USA (and Canada) products that are of particular use to RVers. Friend Mike McFall has already pointed out his PressurePro Tire Monitoring system is made in the USA,Check out Mike's Blog if you want to meet a real old-time cowboy.
Of course, Rosie, our Itasca motorhome was made here, as are most of the RVs we see on the road. Mac ‘the Fire Guy” McCoy sells US-made fire fighting equipment. Kleenex tissue is made here, so is Jack Daniels for those who like that sort of stuff. Our favorite is made in Canada.
If you would, take a look at some of the RVing equipment you use.If it says Made in the USA or Canada on it, leave a comment or send us an email telling us about it, so we can include it in our story.
Finally, for Rick and Al, this post was done in Live Writer. I like it, I like it!
And that’s all for this episode of … Our Life on Wheels.
