30 DAYS

WE HAVE A COUNTDOWN METER ON OUR INTERNET HOMEPAGE.  IT COUNTS DOWN THE DAYS TO WHAT EVER DATE YOU ASSIGN TO IT. TODAY OUR COUNT DOWN SAYS 30 DAYS TO PINETOP!

THE WHITE MOUNTAINS WORK FOR US! THE MILEAGE IS 325 MILES FROM THE DESERT TO THE WHITE MOUNTAINS. THERE ARE OTHER HIGH PLACES IN ARIZONA, LIKE FLAGSTAFF AND WILLIAMS, BUT FROM INVESTIGATING ON THE INTERNET WE FOUND THEM TO BE PACKED WITH CITY PEOPLE FROM PHOENIX, AND MORE EXSPENSIVE.

“THIS IS THE PLACE” AS BRINGHAM YOUNG SAID, AND WE WILL BE USING THE WHITE MOUNTAINS TO ESCAPE THE SUMMER HEAT ON THE DESERT.

WE HAVE RENTED THE SAME CABIN AND ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO RETURN TO THE WHITE MOUNTAINS.  ONE OF THE BROCHURES USES THE TAG LINE,”THE OTHER ARIZONA”.  THAT PRETTY MUCH SUMS IT UP.

WE WILL BE RE-VISITING SOME OF THE RV PARKS WE VISITED AND IF NONE OF THE USED PARK MODELS HAVE SOLD IN THE FIVE WEEKS WE WERE GONE, THEN IT MUST BE A BUYERS MARKET, AND WE WILL BE SUBMITTING A LOW BALL OFFER AFTER LABOR DAY ON A TRAILER.

NEXT SUMMER WE PLAN TO SPEND A MONTH IN THE MOUNTAINS AND THE CABIN RENT AND THE TRAILER PARK RENT ARE ABOUT THE SAME, SO IF IT’S A HELL OF A DEAL, WE WILL GO AHEAD INSTEAD OF WAITING A FEW MORE YEARS.

YUP, I HATE TO ADMIT IT, BUT PLAN “A” TRAVELLING IN A CLASS C RV WITH A BRIGHT YELLOW JEEP FOR A TOAD IS BACK ON THE, “WHEN WE WIN THE LOTTERY LIST”.
