We'll be heading for Show Low, AZ on Monday moring. Plan on picking up Parris Pacer on Wed. morning complete with all the instructions we most certainly will need! Packing is going slowly--house looks like a tornado hit!
After getting the camper we will head to Gina's camp and stay Wed. and Thurs. night. She told me which spot to ask for so we can pratice "backing". It looks like a beautiful camp.
Friday morning we head to Tempe, where a friend lives------for a fun visit, then Sat. morning it's back toward Omaha, NE (probably at a snail's pace.)
Not taking the pugs, which is a really sad deal, because this whole vacation week was supposed to be about them---going to 4 Paws Kingdom in North Carolina. Now, they're not going anywhere! Decided NOT to take them to AZ. We'll have much to do and learn, and it's HOT (no a/c in camper yet.)
Speaking of which, my hubby (you remember---the guy who wanted nothing to do with this deal)--is getting excited! He said he wants to paint
the camper red, put in a 50 inch TV, and take it to Husker games! I told him to get HIS OWN CAMPER!!!
He has rigged up a neat "portable" air conditioner we saw on YouTube. An ice cooler with ice, cut a lid from foam insulation, cut hole in lid for fan to blow INTO the cooler, cut hole for PVC curved pipe coming OUT of the top. You turn on the fan, it blows the air over the ice and comes out the pipe. Don't know how it will do in AZ, but it's better than nothing! (Gina's camp is high enough, it's pretty cool there--just didn't know about the trip home.)We're taking a fan run by electricity and one battery
Well, better get back to packing. Thanks to all who have helped us start this journey. I'll take pics and let you know how it all went!
WT heck???? Just heard there's a hurricane heading toward Mexico---rain expected in the AZ desert next week! And so it begins---those lasting "fun" memories!!! Breathe, Vickie, Breathe!!!
