Back In Durango, CO

Alpen Rose RV Resort, Durango, CO.     H65  L30

Although I have not written much about our Snowbird season (Oct-Apr) it was a very active time for Judy and I. Judy and I are busy almost daily during this time with a variety of recreational activities and social get-togethers.  I played in 13 shuffleboard tournaments and Judy was on the pickle ball courts daily and was my shuffleboard partner when I needed a female partner for mixed doubles SB tournaments.  She has informed me she is not going to be my partner next year.

Staying Busy in AZ:

We took our RV out of storage last Tue evening and brought it to our house and made travel preps Wed. We headed out Thurs.  Judy determined that one day RV prep time is not enough so we will plan on a two to three day prep period for next year.

Although our trip to Durango, Co is only 450 miles, we split it into a two days drive. We stayed in Holbrook, AZ Thurs night at the Petrified Forest KOA.  It is just off I40. The drive is very scenic from the desert up through the Rim Country of northern AZ. 

On the way to Holbrook, AZ we saw an accident which left an 18 wheeler in a field.     20170413_142049

Leaving Friday morning we drove the remaining 268 miles to Durango via Gallup, Shiprock and Farmington NM into Colorado. Durango is only 45 miles from Farmington. We pulled into Durango at 2:30PM. Unlike last years snowy and rainy arrival at Alpen Rose RV Park the weather was sunny and warm. Our workamper neighbors from last year, AJ and Bruce arrived the day before and were waiting for us as we pulled into our site. We had a long welcome-back break and then Judy and I unhitched the RV and began getting settled. Our workamping season (Apr –Oct) for 2017 is on.


Happy Hour
