I've unplugged everything so nothing is flashing or beeping now. Guess I should go get Tim out of the garage.

My new BFF has left...I think I'll just lay here and pout. Maybe I'll get an extra cookie if I pout long enough.

Concrete floors. Long lines. Sore feet. Back aches. First day closes at 5pm.
Limp back to rig. Take Lucy for piddle walk. Tim pours wine. Prone on floor with feet up on couch. Flexible straw in wine glass. Dinner - pretzels.

The weather had forecasts of wind gusts of 50-60 mph on Wednesday (today) and we really didn't want to drive in that weather so we got here yesterday. The only available location I could find was a rv park behind a local motel. We missed the turn into their place and ended up next door at The Comfort Inn. We got out, walked over to the fence and looked at the park where we had reservations. Tim and I looked at each other and said no way - their banjos had strings missing. I tried to convince the Comfort Inn Manager to let us stay in his parking lot but he said he'd be full that evening and he needed every parking space.
So off we go to find a Wal-Mart. Fortunately, we didn't have to go far. It was even a Super Wal-Mart.
We also had a view of Staples. Payless Shoes was next to them. Behind us was Chili's and StarBucks was across from them. Tim walked over to the store this morning for donuts. I went later and got ice. Really worked out well since what I forgot at home I picked up at Wally World.

That’s what the Apaches called this part of southeastern Arizona. The official name is Chiricahua National Monument. We probably never would have visited this land of turkeys if we hadn’t done so with our RV Club. We didn’t even know it existed! What a gem. Most people think of Arizona being the desert but the diversity of the land is incredible.
Faraway Ranch – The original cabin was purchased around 1887 by a couple of Swedish immigrants. The cabin had been the headquarters of the white officers of the 10th Calvary of the Buffalo Soldiers (African-American enlisted unit). They were part of the last campaign to capture the Apache rebel Geronimo.
Faraway Ranch was turned into a guest ranch around 1917 and continued with guest services until the mid-60’s. Here are some pics – a few I made black and white
I bet there are turkeys hiding in those rocks!
The middle picture was taken at 6000 feet on a path of a extremely windy day. I had to hang onto a tree branch at one point…otherwise I was going to be down there with the turkeys!!
