April 1 and 2 ABQ to Holbrook AZ

April 1, 2013 April Fools Day

Last night at about 11:15 there was a pounding on our door – Cinder immediately started her deep barking and growling – David opened the door (NEVER AGAIN) and there was a guy asking for $30…Cinder by this time was foaming at the mouth, David was holding her back and the dude was backing up!  Needless to say, I was pretty uncomfortable the rest of the night.  I so love my Cinder!

This morning I took the car to Jiffy Lube to get the oil changed and they determined my serpentine belt had cracks in it – so replaced that – got out of there just under $120 so I guess that’s better than having it break and smash the engine :(

I picked David up and we went and got him a suit that fits for the cruise.  I’m not overjoyed with it, but it works…we then found the other Moose Club here in ABQ, but I remembered there was a PA park on the west end of town…we drove out to Enchanted Trails RV Park, liked what we saw and got a site.  We then drove to Sandia Casino where we had a marvelous lunch and didn’t put any money in the slots at all…not one little nickel! 

We then went back to the MH, hooked up and headed out of ABQ on I-40, and were set up here in the park by 3:30.  We are running the AC and had cereal for dinner.

We got up and hit the road by 8:30 this morning.  Drove about 100 miles and stopped for gas and breakfast – fried egg sandwich for David, Scrambled egg sandwich for me :)  When we crossed into AZ we stopped at the visitor center, and since we had ‘lost’ an hour talked about driving on to Winslow instead of stopping at Holbrook.  However, shortly after noon the wind started howling, and several gusts about took us off the road, so we decided we would stop which is what we did.  This is the Root 66 RV Park and they are a Passport America, so full hook-ups for $16.50 per night.  Can’t kick at that!

They have petrified wood here for sale for $2 a pound – some of these chunks would easily go 1000 pounds!  I saw a piece I’d love to have on my site at LSC, but don’t want to carry the weight!  We are only about 15 miles from the National Petrified Wood Park – but we did that our last trip through here so no need to go again – besides, I don’t want to un-hook the car.  What, me lazy??? Nah, just good sense :)

I have double cheese quesadilla hamburger helper cooking and I made a salad – it will be soup for dinner I think!
