Saturday morning we're taking the 5er for a spin...all the way to Las Vegas (but not in one day). Our countdown is down to one day. Hitch itch is strong with us and we can't wait to have the wheels rolling again. Two weeks on the road! Yippee.
We'll be going to City of Rocks State Park in New Mexico to learn about the big volcano that caused their rock formations. A visitor center and a walk through the rocks is in our future.
Then we're off to Lake Pleasant Regional Park to camp near Carefree, Arizona, and we'll visit with Bob's Aunt and Uncle. We may have time for some Volksmarches in the Phoenix area too.
From Carefree, our next stop is Lake Mead to camp for five nights. We'll be going to Henderson and Las Vegas, NV from our campsite every day. Bob's family lives in Henderson and I have two cousins coming - one from Sacramento, CA and one from Tennessee - with whom I'll have a mini family reunion. I see more Volksmarches in our future.
On the return trip, we will see the Dodgers vs. the Mariners in a spring training game, and wander the Camelback Ranch learning about training and shopping at the booths. This has been on Bob's bucket list for quite some time.
Next stop will be Carlsbad Caverns and we may even throw in a trip to Roswell. I've always wanted to go to the kitschy UFO Museum. And from there, we'll be headed back to our site in San Antonio.
It's getting late, so I'll fall asleep thinking about all the fun things we'll do on our vacation.
Travel Bug out.
