It was while I was perusing through some of the topics yesterday morning that I came across a post from some folks thinking of buying their first RV. They were trying to decide on what length of an RV to buy. The fellow mentioned that he didn't want an RV that was too long or it might limit them to certain parks & he didn't want to get into towns or places that were too small to get his RV out of. He mentioned the MINGUS MOUNTAIN town of Jerome, Arizona as an example & that immediately reminded me of an accidental wrong turn & harrowing ride we had over Mingus Mountain right smack dab into the narrowed streets of Jerome on November 26th of 2007 with our 33 foot motorhome. Our blog for that day is HERE & the photos I took while trying to squeeze through the streets of Jerome & still leave some paint on the rig are HERE. Additional pictures of Jerome, Arizona are HERE.
When we think of Autumn we generally thing of falling Autuman leaves, & that's a common thought.........unless you live in a pine forest!! Before moving here we never thought of pine trees dropping their needles in the fall. Not all of them of course, but a lot of them. Always a big huge pine needle clean-up in the sping. It is windy here to-day & it almost looks like a lite snowfall with all the pine needles falling from the trees.

Had a few questions about yesterday's Ikea blog & the furniture we bought there for the motorhome. A resounding 'yes' to the question about whether the furniture has worked out well & do we still like it.

While boondocking east of Sierra Vista last winter we met a fellow on RV Net who worked on the army base at Fort Huachuca. We called him Sergeant John. The ‘Sarge’ & his wife Jackie live in the little town of Elfrida. They are an RV couple & the Sarge’s hobby is his 2 Hudson Hornet cars. They have traveled to many car rallies over the years & I think John may have been President of the Hudson Hornet Car Club at one time. The photo album below shows the Sarge’s cars in storage at his home.
It has turned out to be a very windy & gray rainy day but I did manage to slip over to the lake earlier & grab a few photos before the rains returned.
