So much time has gone by since the last post so I will break it up into a couple of posts.
We were not able to stay with Howard and Tanya. Overnight vehicles like ours were against the rules in their gated community so we all went out to dinner at a great Italian place then we moved on to the KOA in Apache Junction. It was a nice park and convenient to a Harbor Freight for Garry to get a couple tools and then to Camping World for me to spend some money the next day. We swung by Power RVZ to look up a Whidbey Island classmate of mine but he was off playing we were told. The day slipped by quickly so we stayed another night at the KOA. When we left the next day we were thinking of stopping in Casa Grande or maybe going to Ajo, Az before we headed into Mexico, but one of our rear brakes was sticking and overheating. We didn’t want to be one of those black burn marks on the highway that we laugh at so we spent a few hours in Coolidge, Az getting the brake fixed. We made it to Ajo just before 5:00. Fortunately I had called in advance because we got the last spot in the Rv park that sounded best.
Despite what we had heard from friends (more on them later) we really liked Ajo and would have stayed longer but the rv parks were full. There was a fiddlers competition and a quilt show that weekend so the little town was hopping. We had a great dinner and hit the sack eager but a little nervous about our venturing into Mexico.
