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.

Beautiful Arizona Weekend!

Well we were able to slip away early on Friday to McDowell Mountain Park for the weekend.  The weather was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed hiking and biking over the two days we were there.  
Space 70 - One of our favorites!

Our Beautiful View!

Our friends from church had never been to the park and enjoyed their time as well.  Tracy and I enjoyed having them with us, even though we didn't have as much alone time as we usually do.

We were packing up yesterday morning and a car came by to tell us that the electrical was out in the park.  I had just unplugged the rig, so the timing couldn't be better to head down the hill to home.  

Enjoyed watching football, snacking and napping yesterday afternoon and I am back at it today.  

I have been helping Sarah's boyfriend Jake with finding a replacement car for his Mustang which was involved in a hit and run accident.  I did most of my research on cars.com and helped him to locate a 2012 Hyundai Veloster at the same dealership where we bought the Silver Streak in July.  I put him in contact with our salesman who was great during our purchase and he was able to do a deal and seems very happy.  The car would be a little small and a little too sporty for me, but I am not 21 years old anymore!
Jake's new ride!

I received an email from the salesman yesterday thanking me for the referral and letting me know that he had dropped a check for $100 in the mail.  I sure didn't expect to be paid for the referral, but it was a nice surprise.  So we will use the referral bonus to take Jake and Sarah out to our favorite Italian place for dinner tonight, that way we all benefit!

That's it for now, glad to hear that our southbound friends are making it to Arizona and places elsewhere safely and thank you all for the visit!


  1. The day will come when you might be among the snowbirds and changing where you call home according to the seasons. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Sometimes you have to give up a little "alone time" for some good company. Getting a few bucks for a referral is sure nice. Never had that happen to me before.

  3. It really was a perfect week-end to be at McDowell.

  4. The $100 bucks is a nice little bonus for a referral. I'm betting the salesman gets more referrals from you and others he comes in contact with.

    Losing power when you are your way out from a camping spot is lucky. McDowell Mountain Park looks like a nice sport to spend a few days.

  5. How cool to get a referral bonus! Looks like the weather in Arizona is nice!

  6. Looks like a nice place to hang out. The strangest referral fee I got was from my dentist. My sister referred me so she got $50...and then they handed me $50 too for coming in on a referral! Strange...but I'll take it!

  7. Nice car you found and what a great way to say Thank from for the salesman.

  8. Nice to get away again and enjoy some time with friends.
    Good deal on the referral too.

  9. Nice space you had for your trip.
    really nice car your helped Jake find and really nice of the sales guy to send you a check. Hope dinner was fantastic.
