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.

Great Day And Great Visit!

We slept in again today and waited for the clouds to blow out and the rain to finally stop.  After breakfast, we braved the elements and headed out for a hike.  Although the path was wet, we were able to get in a good hike and see some wild life as well.

Clouds and Rain!
We found a tarantula moving slowly down the trail in our direction, so it gave us a chance to get a picture. Ranger Mark at the Visitor's Center told us that he was a male and was looking for a mate. He also said that following the mating process, the female kills and eats the male. Puts a bad marriage into a whole new perspective. 
Marching to his death:-(

We saw that Rene and Jeanette were headed to Lake Pleasant today and they were just too close to our location to not stop by and say hello. I have followed their Blog for quite some time and we were so excited to meet them in person. They are such a warm and welcoming couple and we enjoyed great wine, snacks and conversation in the living room of their beautiful 5th Wheel.  It was so great to meet and learn more about them and their wonderful family. There was only one thing that would have made the visit even more perfect, and that would have been if their beautiful Grandson Easton was with them, so that we could have met him in person too.  What a great day with a wonderful couple, we hope your time in Arizona is enjoyable. We look forward to getting together with you both again very soon!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit and we hope that your upcoming Thanksgiving week is a safe and enjoyable!

  1. I love that cloud picture. There is something about clouds that I find fascinating. So much fun to meet up with blogger friends. Someday it's going to happen for us also.

  2. It's good to be reading you're traveling again, but not so good about the weather. I think most of the country got zapped by this cold storm! I know South Texas is darned chilly!

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    Happy to hear you have two daughters visiting for Christmas.

  4. Weird story about Tarantulas.

    Sure happy to hear you had a nice visit with Rene and Jeanette - a couple of our favourite RV'ers. We always look forward to our visits with them both. We haven't met Easton yet but are looking forward to it.

    Somehow, it seems, with all my messing around I lost contact with your posts for a bit. But I've corrected that now and am back on track.

  5. Glad you managed to enjoy the trails even for a little bit. We can't believe how long the rain lasted. I reminded Al he's a lucky man being married to me and not a tarantula....lol. Enjoy your holidays with family....always special times!

  7. And a wet soggy weekend it was. Daughter got married Sat. I thought we might have to rent boats to get to the other side of town.
    Sorry about your camping trip but at least you waited until Monday to leave.
