On Monday Oct 28th thetime finally came to say a sad farewell to Pat and Harry Koehler who have been our faithful companions for 4 weeks. We are heading south to Tucson, AZ, and they are heading north, home to Calgary, Alberta, before the snow arrives. So it’s back on the road again after a much needed rest for 3 days in Golden. The drive to Santa Fe, New Mexico, took us about 7 hours of flat terrain and big sky country with beautiful cloud formations. We stayed at the KOA Campground, very clean and not very crowded. We decided to take a trip into Santa Fe for the evening, but it was too late for a lot of the shops to be open. So we had a Mexican dinner at the Shed Restaurant in downtown Santa Fe.
The next day we hit the road again to Deming, New Mexico, where we stayed at the 81 Palms RV Resort for seniors only, we do qualify now, and it was one of the flattest sites we have stayed on for a while. The sunset from our RV site was breath taking, the trees looked like they were on fire. We headed to Arizona the next day to Tucson, it was a short day on the road. The only exciting event was going through the border patrol, and all they asked us was ” Are you American citizens?” We arrived at Lazydays RV Resort in Tucson, a beautiful resort and nice spacious campsites, surrounded by orange and grapefruit trees.
