This is the first rest stop that I have even seen with a dog run.  Great idea.

We were awoke around 1 a.m.  by loud bangs then flames.  A fifth wheel caught on fire.  Fortunately no one was hurt, but the 5th wheel and pick up were totally destroyed.

Sure hate to see things like that happen.   But sure glad no one was hurt.

Unique Rest Stops

In our travels  we have come across a unique rest stop for Route 66 fans. The Conway Rest Stop on I 44 West, Missouri where we Boondocked over night.

2018 Tucson, Arizona

During family trips we park the RV and stay in various Condos throughout the U.S. so we can all stay together.

In March we traveled to Tuscon, Arizona to meet family at the Varsity Club of America-Tuscon. The staff at the resort was extremely helpful as we had to find a place to park our RV and trailer somewhere for the week.  They had us park in the employee parking lot which was a secure gated area.

We also had the chance to visit a friend who lives near Tuscon.   We all went out for a nice meal.   Kate and my friends son had a jalapeno eating contest.   The results were hilarious.   Neither wanted to admit how bad it burned going down.

We were able to spend time a my friends house and enjoy the fabulous view from my friends house

What a marvelous view for a picnic.

After the picnic the kids got into the pool.

We had a great time in Tuscon and looking forward to a return trip.



Sink Stains

We  were told when we bought our RV that because the sink was not stainless, it would stain from coffee and other things.  Within a year ours was looking pretty disgusting.  We had tried many products to clean it and nothing worked.

We got to the point where we were talking about getting a new sink.  We knew it would be costly but we seemed to have no choice.

One day I went to a store and bought Soft Scrub.  I knew it would not damage the sink surface and it was the one product I had not tried previously.  Well, it worked!!  The stains were gone and the sink looks brand new again.

So if you encounter this problem, there is an inexpensive fix.
