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.

Rain, Rain And More Rain!

Due to work commitments, we don't get many opportunities to get out and enjoy our RV during the year. When we do decide to get out, I sit at my computer using the online reservation system to guess which weekend would be the best. 

I am about 50% successful with my guessing, hitting either excessive heat or even snow in April, freezing cold in October or non-stop rain in November, which has been what we have had this weekend in Cave Creek Arizona. 

I waited most of yesterday to get out between the downpours and was successful getting set up before it was time to head home to pickup Tracy after work. We drove back up to the campground in the dark and pouring down rain, neither of which I enjoy driving in. 

We cooked our hamburgers on the stove , sorry George, no Weber last night, and settled in for a long night of rain tapping on the roof. I know that some folks like that sound, it just keeps me awake. :-(

Well our normal routine is to pack up and head home on Sunday, which normally is the most beautiful day of our stay, but not this trip.  We decided to fool the elements and head out on Monday. It will be interesting to see how our plan works. 

The great news is that we get all of the local stations, so we can watch the ASU Sun Devils win tonight and hopefully catch the Cardinals game tomorrow as well. 

Either way, we are just happy that we can be out and about and I will sign off now because the sun just peaked through the clouds, which may mean that we get a hike in today. Thanks for the visit and enjoy your day wherever you are and whatever you are doing!


  1. Camping anywhere is good, at least you are high and dry and not nearly as cold as we are here in Texas.
    Sometimes its just not convenient to cook outside, so we do what we have to do.
    No matter what you will enjoy your time away.
    Fo me cooking inside is a real change of pace so no big deal.
    And get rid of all that rain before we get to Arizona please.

  2. Thanks. I'm sitting inside the rig while the cold wet rain comes down along the upper gulf coast of Texas. :(

  3. Too bad the rain ruins some camping plans. At least you get to relax a bit anyway! Hopefully the rest of your weekend goes well :)

  4. Because of the fact that both of you are not retired yet it is wise to make the most of your time no matter what the weather. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  5. The soft patter of the rain on the roof takes some getting used to. Unless it is totally hammering away, I can usually get to sleep but I remember that wasn't always the case!

  6. We're now in Wikieup as I write this comment. It's raining 'cats and dogs'. The weather prognosticators are calling for this system to dissipate overnight. Let's hope that true. Lake Pleasant awaits us tomorrow (Sunday).

  7. Today is looking a little bit better - thank goodness. I was glad we had the boat just in case. Fingers crossed that you get in a couple of hikes.

  8. It sure has been a wet few days in AZ from the sounds of RVers and the weather reports. Sure hope you get a nice day Monday for packing up and heading home.
