Beyond Tucson

We bega2016 routen our journey Northwest to Oregon on April 10th. Our first stop was Cottonwood, Az and Dead Horse Ranch State Park for 3 nights. We visited Sedona and Jerome. Our visit to Jerome was by motorcycle. It was a nice ride, however we had to race back ahead of a thunderstorm.

Our next stop was Buckskin Mountain SP in Parker, Az. Our friend Ben liked this park and Buckskinthe hiking trails. This is the Buckskin trail and it leads you on a loop across the highway via a bridge. the park sits along the river and is very pretty.


Onward and upward! Our next stop on our journey North is Pahrump, Nevada. Hoping that the weather stays cool, so we can visit Death Valley! DVOur RV park for 2 nights was Wine Ridge Rv Resort. Death Valley was awesome. Weather stayed cool and we took a 6 hour ride through the park. We have tried for several years to visit DV, but it was always too hot. 

Our next overnight stop was Whiskey Flats Rv Park. But.. before we got to the rv park we had a little scare! An alarm started to go off, weak at first but then got louder. So I pulled over to the side of the road and began to look around for the source. i soon found it, but was confused as to what it was, It was marked Remco. Did an internet search and discovered that it was a monitor for a transmission lube pump put on vehicles to be towed. we we did not have that, so it must have been installed by the previous owner! So I shut the engine off and removed the device and unhooked it from the power source. hat took care of the alarm!. But wait, there is more and it was scarier! I tried to start the motor home but nothing came on! So I put everything back and still nothing! So I started to look at fuses and found a 30 amp fuse for the ignition had blown! Borrwed one from a spot that had a 30 amp fuse but was not needed, put it in and Yea the engine fired up! Unplugged the Remco and the engine stayed running. Not sure why the fuse blew. I did remove a ground wire that was on a screw to hold the monitor so maybe that blew the fuse? Oh well we got to the rv park and got set up. Nice park, good views and nice folks.

Getting closer to Medford!  Susanville rv park was our next stop. This park was very well maintained and had large sites for the Big rigs! I flew the park for an aerial view. Tomorrow we will arrive at Valley Of the Rogue State park for a 10 day stay before we head to L.L. Stub Stewart State park for our 2 month hosting job. Visiting with our son David and his wife Kim and a bonus our grandson T.J. is home as well.

We have started our 13th year on the road and we still love it! Here is a graphic of All tripstodateour travels over the last 7 years. Lost the first 6 years or just haven’t found them!
