The 3rd annual Spring Spiff-n-Fix is, well, changed to the Late Summer Spiff-n-Fix, and the location has been moved from Applewhite Campground in So Cal to the cooler part of Arizona in the White Mountains.

I’ll be having the Spiff-n-Fix at The Arizona High Country Campground in Clay Springs, AZ (Where I am currently working) on August 21, 22 and 23, 2009. Directions are on the website, but for quick reference, we are 15 miles NW of Show Low Arizona, just off Highway 260.

The *concept* of the Spiff-n-Fix is to bring your trailer problem you don’t know how to fix and hope you get help from someone else who can. You, in turn, can help someone with a problem you know how to fix. Trade one problem for another, so to speak.

The *execution* of past Spiff-n-Fixes have resulted in everyone eating and drinking lots, and nothing getting done but looking at folks concerns, then proclaiming “Yep, that’s a problem. What’s for dinner?” Sympathy, however, is doled out en masse. Pointing and laughing is common.

But for those that REALLY want more than an excuse to gather with friends and enjoy good food and relaxing, we actually have a real live certified RV Tech staying in the park that has made himself available that weekend for any repairs that none of us care to tackle, or are having too much fun to bother with. His rates are exceedingly good, and so is his work. He is bonded, licensed and insured and will bring his van full of every tool known to man right to your rig and repair on the spot.

Please post your problem here and what skills and expertise you have to trade that may help others. If your repair requires parts, please bring them with you.

The only formal activity planned is a Hawaiian theme Pot Luck on Saturday night. Bring your tacky Hawaiian shirt, Hula skirts and drink umbrellas and an island dish of your choice. (SPAM recipes accepted, if you just HAVE to) We will make sure everyone gets Leid. We will also provide fruits and hopefully we can get Phil Caster (Where are you Phil?) to do his famous solar oven pork for us. Sorry, the fire dept. may take a dim view of us burying a pig and setting it alight, but we can make do, I think. Feel free to post ideas and suggestions!

The area is abundant with fishing in both lakes and streams, hiking, atv/jeep trails and within less than an hours drive, you can be enjoying the high altitudes of 8-9k feet and all the mountain meadows you can handle. It really is a beautiful area and I am enjoying my time off exploring new things each week.

The campground is a full service park, and everyone’s toys and trailer amenities can be used here, or for those that like to boondock, we have a no hook up area available in the trees if you prefer. There is a central group area for the festivities, and I will hold sites around it for that weekend. Full hook up sites are $23.40 with a FGRV/Casita Forum 10% discount + tax. No Hook ups are $13.50 + tax. Please call 928-739-4189 to reserve yours!

I will post the attendees list below

Terrific idea, Gina! We had such a blast last year at AppleWHITE CG, and we know everyone will have a great weekend in this lovely area around AppleGATE CG We would love to join you, but at that time we expect to be making our way west from MT/Northern ID to take part in a family shindig near Ft. Bragg, CA. Keep us all posted on the planning and the doins'. L 'n D

Too bad! Boo Hoo! Are you sure? This is on your way back to Quartzsite... doesn't everyone want to be in QZ in August?



The White Mnts are nothing like Applewhite, its actually *gooder* (Not that there was anything bad about Applewhite, it just different) The trees are taller, it's cooler and there is LOTS more water to see.

We would love to come but will be working in Sacramento that weekend and with the way things are, we have to work when we can. Gina, you will have to post pictures of all the work that gets done or at least all the fun.

I want to go, I want to go! I have vacation spread all out In July and August to spend monsoon season in the mountains. The days planned fall on my 5 day weekend so I will be there at sun-up on the 21st. I make chicken people line up for but don't own a Hawaiian shirt. I am more than willing to help on any repairs and learn much from the RV guy. Sounds like real fun!

Gina,

Michelle and I want to come up for your get together, but like Linda and Dale, the way things are I need to work when I can. However, If they let me off for that weekend, we will come up. I sent your gathering info to George and Betty, Alan and Jackie. They usually have more flexible schedules than myself. Hope to be able to attend! Doug

Wow! I need this SOOO bad!! But I am not coming that way until mid-September.
Gina, I will be traveling from Indiana to Sierra Vista AZ in mid/late September. I could be coming right through that area, depending on the route I take. Will you still be working at that park at that time?
