1/15/07 Just a quick update to let you know that we are now located in Boomerville. This is the Boomer gathering in the desert near Quartzsite, AZ. There are about 40 rigs here already and it doesn't officially start until Wednesday! Lots of our friends are here already and we have had tons of visitors in our new rig, and plenty of social occasions lest we have more than one minute to ourselves! The weather has been very chilly and we are hoping for a warm-up pretty soon. One of these days I will get out with a camera and then post some pictures here. We will be here until at least the first part of February.

1/4/07 The pictures below were sent to us by Stephanie Bernhagen after we stayed at their place 2 nights ago on our way back to Tucson from Texas. It amazed us that they had room for several rigs on the side of their new house!
We have now spent 1 1/2 days in Tucson getting things organized in the rig and picking up our tow car. Today we drove from Tucson to Yuma where we are parked outside the home of our friends Eileen and Ray Cooper who live in the Foothills. Now we have to start the process of getting our new rig ready for boondocking. We will start by having an oil change and then have our solar system reinstalled, plus add two more golf cart batteries. Guess what - we got back here just in time for severe weather warnings for tomorrow!

1/2/07 We are back in Tucson at Aunt Marion's house where we left our car when we went to Texas to pick up our new motorhome. We will try to get better organized tomorrow and then head back to Yuma on Thursday. Finally, I took the time to take some pictures of our new RV and post them below so you can see how beautiful our new home is. Enjoy!
On our drive back from Texas, we stopped the first night in Abeline to spend New Year's Eve with Larry and Joyce Space, friends from our Panama trip in 2004. They were stranded at the Flying J when their truck seized up and they needed major repairs. Not a good thing to happen on a holiday weekend! We had a happy reunion with them and stayed in the parking lot there overnight. Hopefully they were able to get their truck repaired today and get on their way to Phoenix.
Last night we stayed in Las Cruces at Paul & Stephanie Bernhagen's new home, along with Judy & Tom Fisher. Amazingly, there is room for 3-4 rigs to be parked along the side of their place. Another SKP couple joined us all for dinner at a local pizza parlor. What a gorgeous home Paul and Stephanie have built there and they did all the work themselves! I have asked Stephanie to send a picture, since I forgot to take one, and when she does, I will post it for you.
