Gail and I stayed in Quartzsite Wednesday night in the FCU area. Originally thought about staying the night on the Rim with Jim but couldn't leave Riverside until 2:30 in the afternoon. There was another RV down near the sign at the turn-in but no one else. We had intended to cut up through Showlow and head east to camp Thursday but US60 was closed 40 miles north/east of Globe for an accident. We ended up heading south on on 70 and then east on 191. What a great road with good views; kind of like the road past Jerome but no traffic. We ended up in a BLM campground in Datil, NM. 33 degrees at 6AM. Friday we drove northeast on US60 and then US54 through Texas and into OK to camp in a 6 space RV park in Hooker, OK; yes Gail wanted me to make it to a Hooker or something! Temperature was 41.Today we are headed to my sister's place in Smithville MO, about 470 miles.

Hay, were back. After hundreds of dollars and a new Wilson super amp. we have internet and phone service in our airstream. We had 5 inches of snow last week. All gone now but it was cold. Were only 3 miles from Jimmy so we get to see each other often. Well i've got about 500 e-mails to check. Hope to see you soon...Mike

Work

Well good to see folks out and about.They where here this passe week end.Was almost full Fri. and Sat.night so it was just getting me ready for this LONG weekend.Sure is hard work.
The weather is getting better so the weather person is saying.
West of our campground is the tunnel to nowhere.The tough nut to crack:the Mogollon Rim.
BUT in 1883 the Arizona Mineral Belt Railroad gave it a try.Capital was raised and engineers advanced a plan.A bore of 3,100 feet,16 feet wide and 20 feet high would take advantage of a natural notch in the Rim north of Payson.The anticipated destination was General SpringsCanyon atop the Rim.A crew of 40 began work in August 1883,in little over more than a month the drillers made 70 feet of tunnel.Then like most big dreams money ran out and the work stopped.Over the next decade an agony of refinancing,tracklaying,backstabbing and suing plagued the project.The grand concpt finally was abandoned.You can hike to the tunnel by going to the Battle of Big Dry Wash monument on the Rim road.Start at the small trailhead sign on the south side of the road.
Good judgment comes from experience,and a lot of that comes from bad judgment

Zane grey

Life is slow in the woods and so is my computer.BUT I Will try.
"My beloved Arizona" was the term of endearment Zane Grey (1872-1939) bestowed upon this state.Zane Grey was the father of the western novel.He wrote 57 westerns,more than 200 short stores,10 nonfiction westerns.His books spawned more than 130 movies and at one time only the Bible and McGuffey's Reade could outsell Zane Grey.His "The Rider of the Purple Sage"is considered a western classic.
Zane Grey had two cabins in Arizona.One was on the upper end of Tonto creek below the Rim but on June 27,1990 it was destroyed by the Dude Fire.Zane Grey chose to spend much of his time in the early 20th century here, this was his base to hunt bear,lion,and deer.This area inspired Grey to write "Under the Tonto Rim",To the Last Man" and "Code of the West".
Another one of Zane Grey's famous cabins-where he wrote "The Heritage of the Desert" is above the north side of the Colorado River,below Lake Powel,under the Vermillion Cliffs.
Zane Gray's love afair with Arizona ended in 1929 when he came to Arizona with an entourage from Hollywood to film a documenter about bear hunting.He had missed bear season and the officals would not bend the rules for him.He left in a huff and said he'd never return and he never did.
Like the heroes of Grey's novels ,a group of wester aficionados banded together and built a historic replica of the cabin in Payson it was completed in 2006
NO one is listening until you fart

Hi

HI it's a better day most folks have gone home.
BUT it has been a bad week to the southeast of us in the White Mountains.Two of the biggest wildfires in Arizona's history are burnin at the same time. (#2 and #6 in size)ALL the campground in that area have been evaquated and closed.I hear that some campgronds have been lost.ALL campgrounds in the high counter are now under fire ristrictions,NO fires allowed.It is now getting into the 70s and the winds are still blowing 20+ mile per hour.NOT GOOD.
The biggest troublemaker you'll ever deal with watches you shave his face every morning.

Fires

Well the fires to the southeast of us rages on out of control.The Wallow Fire has 2315 fire personnel battling the over 233,522 acre fire(Now #2 largest in Arizona history.)Over 2200 residents evacuated from Alpine,Greer,Sunrise Park,Nutrioso and the other areas around them.With zero contanment the blaze continues to advance to the north and northwest pushed by 40 mile per hour winds.
In southeastern corner of Arizona the "Horseshoe Two" fire has growen to over 100,200 acres.(Now 5th largest in AZ histor)With 55 percent containment.
This year's La Nina weather patterns have made for the "Perfect Storm"fire season. This year is worse than it has been in over a decade,thanks to 12 years of drought,as well as dry vegetation, warmer temperatures and lots of "wind events".That no Honky Tonk lie.
Sometimes we have winter all summer and summer all winter.It's mighty reguar about not raining though.

I went up to Jimmie's campground yesterday to see how he was doing. The only complaint he had was that he is board. He had a grand total of two campers in his campground. What a deal. I hear next year he will be in Spillway and Sheri and I will be in his. Ha Ha... Come visit us in Spillway. Just give us a call, we have room in our site.. Mike and Sheri

Fire

Well the Wallow Fire just keeps getting bigger.
The boots I came in have always stood their ground.But remember before you speak your mined and cuss the boss saddle a fast horse.
Well I am the management of the Apache-Sitgreaves forests for their poor judgment. The Wallow Fire might not have come to pass IF they had put the fire restriction in on the 20th of May like they had announced,But lifted that order that Fri. morning.The Wallow Fire started on 29 May, BUT they DID NOT put fire restrictions on till 3 Jun.With the "wind events" we had what where they thinking?Our government working at its best?
I hope China will loan OUR Government the money to put out the fires.
Before you criticize someone,you should walk a mile in their shoes.That way,when you criticize them your a mile away and have their shoes.But a Fast horse beats walking.

Just home from spending 5 nights up on the Rim with Jim n Min. Jim's campground is now closed due to the high fire danger. Jim will be parked at Canyon Point until/if we get some rain then he can open back up.

Hey Julianne... glad you were able to get up to the Rim and see Jim & Min. Wow! We didn't realize the campgrounds up there were getting closures...I guess we need to look on line and see what's up. We went to a couple of campgrounds after Flagstaff (Pinegrove near Flag) and then Rock Crossing NE of Clint's Well. It was very dry, no fires or charcoal, and was getting pretty warm. We talked about dropping down to the Rim above Payson, but decided we'd better come home ...to 112 degree temps! Argh! Must be even worse in Phx. We'll try to get up to the Rim later in the summer I reckon.

FIRE Conditions BAD

Well we had to close and move out of Mogollon campgound last Tue.Moved to Canyon Point campground because of the fire danger.Sure do need some rain.The only campgrounds open in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest are Canyon Point,Sinkhole,Rim,Aspen,Spillway and the 2 grounp campgrounds Crook and Woods Canyon.NO Fires are allowed.You are not allowed outside a developed campsite.You are not allowed to walk,hike,bike or travel on the trail systems.At Willow Springs and Woods Canyon lake boaters are allowed to be on the water but are not allowed on the shoreline except the are adjacent to the boat ramp.Anglers are allowed to fish from the shoeline only along the developed day use areas.The Forests is CLOSED TO ALL PUBLIC ENTRY.
Right now it looks like non of the campgrounds east of Show Low will open before 15th of July because of the Wallow fire and no rain.They are afaid when the rain comes to the burn area of the hillside sliding ect.
ME I am now helping working the entery gate at Rocky Point day use picnic area at Woods Canyon Lake.It is open 8AM to 8 PM and the Forest Service now requires some one to be there while it is open.
Country fences need to be horse high,pig tight and bull strong.

Rain

Well yesterday and today we got a little rain it made mud out of the dust in the rain gage BUT it is a start less than 1/4 " here at Canyon Point but about 1/2" over at Aspen,Spillway and Rocky Point
Lighting hit a tree and it fell over by Mikee at Spillway.
Well I hope it rains every Day so I can get back to my campground. I am NOT cut out to work in a booth like Rocky Point has. That ain't no honky tonk lie.
Always remember you're unique.Just like everyone else.

4th was spectacular...we enjoyed WAY too much food with Jim&Lou from here and Ajo...fireworks were great, and it was a 3 pillow night from all the food...so far, we have avoided the fires, and my boots are dusty, but uncharred...have to do the big box store tomorrow(oh joy), but driving an unlicensed, unregistered vehicle should add a bit of spice to an otherwise dull life...can I go camping, now???m
