I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.

I Stand Corrected!

Well the weather in Prescott was wonderful and our space was settled in the pines with a quick walk down to the lake, so we were happy. 

We arrived about 3:00pm and two of the rigs in our group had already arrived, so it was nice to meet them. 

This is the part where I stand corrected.  Tracy was reviewing the blog and noticed that I said that we were going to be boondocking for the first time.  Tracy said that we were not boondocking because we were staying in a campground, we were dry camping.  

I couldn't argue with her because I knew she was right and Mike, of Mello Mike's RV & Off-Road Adventures acutally confirmed what she was saying in his recent blog post about boondocking. 

Iris did great pulling the hills up to Prescott with the tin can in tow, it was like we were not towing anything and we were able to maintain 55mph even on the toughest grades.

The batteries and water lasted all weekend long and we both were able to even get a quick shower.  The only problem that we encountered was that the pilot light blew out on the refrigerator and we didn't notice the check light until the next morning, so all of our food was at 70 degrees when we got up Saturday morning and we had to throw it all out.  Luckily, there was a WalMart close by our campgound, so we were able to get replacements easily. Now Tracy and I look at that light everytime we walk by the refrigerator.

Here are some pictures from our time at Lynx Lake, it really is a wonderful campground and is an easy ride up from the Valley.

Great weekend
We did have a great weekend and it was so nice to get to the cooler weather, it was over 100 here in Phoenix today.  Thanks for the visit, have a great week and safe travels!        


  1. That is one beautiful lake so blue. I didn't know the difference either, but like I said I don't know much about boondocking. Good to learn these things.

  2. Glad you dry camping worked out pretty good for you. Except for the fridge incident but at least you were able to get new supplies. The cooler weather would have been welcome for you guys, we are sty waiting fot the heat wave.

  3. Any time away from the norm of the working world is a bonus, Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  4. Glad you two had a good time. Looks like a great spot to be in.

  5. Ah yes, the things we discover when RVing. I'm willing to bet you will always keep vigilant with the fridge and other systems from here on.

    Lovely camping area you were at and the lake looked inviting too. Did you swim in it?

  6. What a nice place to camp in.

    To bad about the fridge. Its always good to get rid of the food and not take any chances. Knew someone who took the chance and was very ill.

    Hope you can have many more outings to get away from the heat.

  7. Look likes you found a very nice spot to 'dry-camp'! I'll bet it felt nice compared to the 100+ degree heat of Phoenix!
