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.

Headed To The Hills!

Well it has been months since IRIS has left her spot on the side of our house, so it is time to get her up and running again before taking her in for a smog test next month. Work has finally slowed down slightly, so I was able to book the last spot at Fool Hollow Lake in Show Low for four days.

Fool Hollow Lake!

Tracy is booked up at work, so I will be flying solo for this trip.  I am looking forward to some time resting, reading and waxing IRIS.  At the recommendation of Rick from Rick & Paulette's RV Travels, I purchased a couple of bottles of 3M Marine Restorer and Wax from Amazon that I am going to use on the passenger side of the motorhome that gets the most sun.  I tested it on a small spot yesterday and it appears to work great.  I will let you know how it goes.  

I will finalize things in the morning including getting the Tin Can hooked up for the trip.  Because I havent towed in awhile, I had to go back and familiarize myself with the towing procedures again.  

They are calling for high winds in Show Low tomorrow and Thursday, so I hope I won't get blown off the hill like our last trip up there in October 2012.  

I hope you are all doing well, thanks for stopping by and more to follow from Show Low!


  1. I'm sure you are feeling great about getting back on the road and doing some camping again. A bit of time spent shinning up the rig will be worthwhile. I have yet to do that but I'm hoping to get to it in the days ahead.

    Good luck with the solo RV'ing project.

  2. Remember Ginny and Mickey from McDowell Park? They are at an RV Park that is right there at Fool Hollow. In case you run into them while you're there. Glad you're able to get out and refresh the memory of everything you need to do. We're having big winds today here in Reno. Be safe out there.

  3. Never heard of that wax. George will be interested in that for sure. Have a great trip!

  4. Have a fun time - take pictures!! Looks like a beautiful lake.

  5. Glad to see you didn't give up the ship and are finally heading out. Tracy will hate herself for not taking the time to go with you. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  6. Travel safe and enjoy relaxing and waxing.
    So nice to get away!
