Went through the entire updates and especially liked the Thanksgiving in Qtown report. Felt like I was there and I too enjoy traveling with you guys. Sometime in the near future, we'll hopefully be able to join you. Thanks for posting.

Hey Brad... Thanks! We enjoyed seeing you at Quartzsite for a little while anyway, but we missed you being there for the whole time. Hopefully we'll see you around the 4CU campfire soon...TB

Lost Dutchman & 4CU New Year's Rally

Alright! We are making good progress at getting the travel log up to date...this is the last trip of 2009...actually spilling over into the new year... We spent Christmas at Lost Dutchman State Park near Apache Junction, AZ and followed that stay with the 4CU New Year's Rally at Picacho Peak State Park.

This was our first time at Lost Dutchman...its a great park, beautiful vistas, all dry camping... We are bummed because it may be our only chance to stay there... it is scheduled to close 3 June (unless Apache Junction or some other gov entity takes it over)...

At Lost Dutchman we met a couple from Colorado, Jim & Marcy, in their 1967 Caravel, parked across the road from us...very nice people, and a great vintage trailer. We got to know them a little and invited them to the Dead Horse Rally in Feb (update on that one forthcoming)...they came ... and joined the 4CU!

From Lost Dutchman we headed south to meet up with the 4CU gang for the much-anticipated New Year's Bash at Picacho Peak State Park (also on the chopping block). What a great time it was. We even stayed up past midnight to ring in the new year! It was a great crowd of 30-some rigs and a very fun rally... Much thanks to Louis & Sergio and Ken & Linda for hosting it... You're a great team!

You can get the full story & pics by going to our travel log (link in our signature below) and clicking on the last entry on the trips page.

Here are some pics to lure you to the travel log:

Pic #1: Approaching the Superstition Mountains from the west...
Pic #2: View from the campground...
Pic #3: View of the Superstitions from our campground at sunset...it doesn't get better than this...
Pic #4: Jim & Marcy's rig across the road from our site...
Pic #5: Terry in our campsite at sunset...it was a beautiful site with a great view...
Pic #6: Gathering around the bonfire at Picacho for New Year' Eve...
Pic #7: Nights were chilly but the bonfire warmed us nicely...
Pic #8: Early morning at Picacho
Pic #9: Richard & Jan with the ostrich egg that they used to make the Dutch Oven omelet in the foreground ... that fed the whole gang!
Pic #10: Aluminum in the desert...

Terry, are you sure that's not a FLAMINGO egg omelet?

Dee & Paul... Do ya think? Maybe those ostriches are really flamigoes in very clever disguises! The next time we're by the ostrich farm perhaps we should stop and do a little investigating! ...TB

Patagonia Lake State Park, AZ

Ready with another update to our travel log...we're on a roll! This is a long weekend trip to Patagonia Lake State Park in late January 2010...the park is located between Patagonia, AZ and Nogales, AZ north off Route 82. We have been there several times, so if you would like to see more pictures or have more information go back to our earlier visits there (all accessible through our travel log, link below in out signature). This was a dry camping weekend for us, but there are electric/water hookups sites available as well. It's popular for birding and it's well-developed for fishing, boating and swimming....even has a marina and a small store.

Here are some pics for you...

Pic #1: The east side of the snow-capped Santa Rita Mountains which lie south of Tucson...shot taken from highway 83 headed south from I-10 to Sonoita, AZ...
Pic #2: Our campsite in the dry camping area facing the lake and beach area...fairly quiet in January...
Pic #3: Lake view..
Pic #4: Lake view...
Pic #5: Free range cows making a meal of prickly pear cacti...
Pic #6: Our campsite through the trees...
Pic #7: Sunset on the lake...
Pic #8: Lake reflections...

OK, I almost choked on my lunch when I got to the "run, Tippy, run" comment.
Thanks, I needed that.
Folks around the office must think I'm crazy laughing to myself.

Bob...had we known you were in our neck o' the woods we could have tried to cross paths! Next time perhaps! We hope to see you two at a 4CU rally sometime!

Tom...I wondered how many would "get" that. We're showing our age, aren't we? One of my favorite Hitchcock movies. Glad you got a kick out of it!

lake pleasant

TB -

just saw your post about lake pleasant. you are right about it being a really nice place and close to phoenix.

deb & i decided to try it and spent a long week-end there starting apr 30th. we got there early afternoon friday and left sunday a.m.

did a lot of r&r and a little fishing [no catching]. the days are getting hotter there but the nights are still cooler than in phoenix. we did get water & electric to make life a bit easier.

we plan to go up there again this week-end since it is only about an hour from where were keep the AS. we can just pick up and go - get a real early start friday.

any excuse to hit the road

we also toured the various loops and noticed they have some group areas that would make a good rally spot for the future.

see you all down the road!

Jon & Deb... Glad you are also enjoying Lake Pleasant ... and it would be really close to you! We thought it would make a nice place for a group venture or rally as well. That dry camping loop down near the water near where the actual group areas are looks inviting. Have fun this weekend... We are heading to Show Low for an extended weekend...looking forward to some cooler weather!

See you soon!
TB

We were in Show Low two weeks ago and the rate was $30.00 per night. I know you know that Terry but some others may not.
