4 April - 1st Leg of Our Homeward Journey - Tucson, AZ to Deming, NM

We took our time packing up this morning but were still on the road by 9:30 a.m. It was 68F (20C ) then and it never did get above 70F (21C) in our travels today.

Gordon did really well on the 4 hour drive. We took it slow and easy with only one stop and with the one hour time change (we’re now back on Mountain time) when we crossed into New Mexico, we arrived at Dream Catcher SKP RV Park in Deming at 2:30 p.m. He still felt well enough to set up the internet satellite! We’re thinking we might spend two days here, we’ll see how we feel tomorrow morning. This isn’t a pretty park with beautiful surroundings like we’ve had for the past few weeks but it’s functional, level, has 50 amp electric and restrooms and showers so it works for us!

Here are a few photos that I took along the way today.

Pretty green trees. Spring has sprung in the desert.

The Thing - you see these signs all along I-10. We've never stopped to see The Thing!

Lots of rock formations around Dragoon, AZ.

We saw several dust devils along the way.

There are always lots of colorful trains running beside I-10 along the way.

Yeah! We're in New Mexico!

Interesting 'ghost' trees.

I hate saying goodbyes when we’re leaving which is why we said goodbye to Jim, Ellie and Christine yesterday. A couple of other neighbors dropped by this morning to wish us well but the park is emptying out very quickly. It’s starting to look like it did when we first arrived there in November. When you come right down to it, the season for Arizona RV parks is nearly as short as they are in Ontario so how come Ontario RV parks charge so much? I always thought it was because of their short season?

Since we were leaving this morning I didn’t have my morning desert walk so I’m glad I said my goodbyes to it yesterday too.

It felt good to be on the road again but it always feels better to arrive safely at your next destination.

  1. I spent several days at Dreamcatcher last you said, not a real pretty area but a nice, clean, friendly campground. Stay till Monday and enjoy the ice cream social on Sunday night. LOL!

    Glad to hear Gordon did so well..
