Oct 30th Lazy day RV site Tucon

Roger and Susie's Travels Well after leaving Avi Friday we landed at a Walmart in Phoenix area thinking we would stay over night (no go) so we left there and headed to Mesa camping world it was dark and the traffic was bruttle (not good) but arrived with out any problems (thank heaven for the Garmin GPS) the next day we went shopping Costco and 99 cent store then headed off to Lazy days RV park Tucon to meet up with Peggy and Robin got there had a beer then we all went to do a hot tub (was that ever great at getting rid of the driving stress) My shoulder has been bothering me this trip I think it is due from being up tight driving but that will get curred when we hit Mexico and relax. Expecting Tim and Sherl to arrived today Sunday then its happy hour

Roger and Susie's Travels Well the last couple of days Susie has done some shopping ( little gambling ???) I should mention Susie has been catching up on Laundry etc. Me relax some golfing nothing to special. I did have to get a RV repair guy out things were not working properly on furnace air condition etc (not to happy after all the work had been done on the coach already) but turned out to something as simple as resetting the control panel so now I have learned to do that ( I some times think I will die before I learn everything HA HA ) last couple of nights instead of going to the casino to eat there so called cheap buffets. We have barbecue at our site turned out great best food sense we left home Steaks one night and tonight Half Chicken MMM good and of course lots of wine

Oct 9th chopping on the bit

Because of our damp weather it is very important to the boat winterized this means all water to drained engine compartment to have a low power heater because you can never get all the water out of the bilge plus all seats and mattress and clothing  any thing in tight quarters to be taken out if they can't breath they will mold so I also put a fan in for ventilation
Roger and Susie's Travels Well a little further and getting closer to leaveing  boat complete and put to bed

Oct. 8th dealing with boat

Love this boat

I Think I like this pose two

It was a struggle but as you can see it did fit in there
Roger and Susie's Travels  Well got the boat cleaned out winterized and motor flushed out with fresh water plus got the 15 horse off the back of the boat and in the trunk of the tow car for our little boat in Mexico. all that is left is too set up a fan plus heater in engine compartment and cover in for the winter. plus still loading Susie,s stuff for the motor home. The weather is crappy I think I am getting excited to start traveling down the road
