December 22, 2008

We arrived at the SKP Saguaro Co-op of Arizona Park in Benson around noon. We were in luck it seems. They had a space available so we paid for a month’s stay. In the course of the registration, we mentioned we knew Howard and Linda and ask what lot they were in.....the clerk looked up and said, “right next door”! Now, how lucky was that!

We got to our lot and found Howard and Linda were both out and about for the day. We got set up and around 4pm we decided to go out and get some dinner. Just as we were set to leave, Linda rounded the corner in their jeep. Ya should have seen her face when she recognized the two of us. Big hugs were exchanged!! Then she invited us to come over to the rec area for “happy hour” to meet and greet. Howard was finishing up his golf and would be joining us there. When Howard walked into the clubhouse I stood up, arms outstretched and yelled his name. Again the look on his face was priceless when he realized who was yelling! More hugs! We had a awesome time getting to know the other folks and then later a bunch of us headed over for the famous .25 cent wing night at the country club. There we got to see Deb and Don Zink. It was so nice to see some fellow rv dreamers---like coming home!

It was a great day, but we were both so very tired from 3 days of travel. Looking forward to staying put and spending time with everyone. I’m not sure I’ll be able to keep up with Linda’s social life at present. I think the next few days may be spent resting and relaxing.

Almost forgot---today is our 25th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have had a better day!


  1. Happy Anniversary! How lucky to spend it in such a great place. Isnt it beautiful country out there.. Relax and enjoy every minute.

  2. Happy Anniversary! Hope you have a good stay at SKP Saguaro. It might be hard to keep up with Howard and Linda. Sounds like they are busy all the time.

  3. Happy Anniversary!

    Glad you were able to meet up with Howard and Linda. We have been reading their journal for the last 3 years and hope to join the ranks of fulltime RV'rs soon.

    How do you like your Americana? Have you had many problems? How have they been about warranty repairs? We're trying to decide what to buy and would appreciate any feedback.

  4. Happy Anniversary to both of you. We're still in COLD Illinois, hoping to leave about the 3rd week of January for Florida. Looking forward to meeting up with you somewhere down the road.
