Where Are We Today
Silver View RV Resort
In my last couple of posts I have listed and ranted about issues we have had this winter with the "Suite", all which can and will be fixed. So on the lighter side, this post is about some fun times.
Back on Feb. 11th, 2020, Keith, Ken and I headed to San Diego to tour the USS Midway Museum, which is an aircraft carrier. We spent over 5 hours exploring the ship, from the Hangar deck down to the engine room and up to the "Bridge and Flight" decks listening to a guided audio tour and talks given by volunteers. This was one of the best military museums I have been to and well worth the $26 admission. I will not bore you with the more than 200 photos that I took , but leave you with a few. For more info check out the link USS Midway.

Besides flying my R/C airplane in the desert, I have also visited/joined a couple of the clubs where we have been staying. The first one is the" Yuma Aeromodelers" who fly at their field on the north side of Yuma, Arizona. I didn't take any pics here, but you can check out their website Yuma Aeromodelers.

At his property, Jim has a large building where the club holds their meetings, has a repair shop with all the tools and supplies for members to use, asking that you leave a donation to help keep it going and Jim has hundreds of planes housed there. Jim buys planes from estates and modellers getting out of the hobby and then resells them. This club has a very friendly bunch of flyers, not only from the U.S. but also Canada. For more info on this club, you can check out their web site Quartzsite Desert Flyers.

Currently we are here in Bullhead City until this Saturday, Mar. 14th, when we start our trek home. Looking back over the last 4 1/2 months, despite our issues with the trailer, this has been a great winter with the best weather of our 4 years down here, seeing new things, places and meeting old and new friends. We have our health, and touching my wooden noggin', we have not been sick, had a cold or broken any bones.
Knowing that we have started that slow north eastward trek, we are saddened to leave the southwest that we love, but looking forward and somewhat anxious, to getting home to family and friends.
So here is to the snow being gone by the time we get there and we are able to get up to " The Ridge" in early April. Thanks for following along, comment if you like and until the next time, take care and be safe.
