Grand Falls, AZ

​After leaving the Petrified Forest National Park, we drove 90 miles to the Twin Arrows Casino and Resort . This is located near the very small town of Winona, about 20 miles east of Flagstaff, AZ. For my exhaust "regeneration" issue, we read somewhere to drive the motorhome like "we were running from the cops". So I did. Well, I drove it at 75mph (the speed limit) for 20 minutes. I usually d...

This State Park only has 14 sites with electric, but another 130+ sites without electric. It was a gamble that paid off. Being early-season, the state park was almost empty. There were only a few electric sites taken...

Playing Tourists in New Mexico, Part 4

Fort Craig, New Mexico
​After arriving at the Caballo State Park, NM , we got the last electric site. However, it was in the "lower" section by the river. We spent a week there, then moved to the "upper" section above the lake. These are much prettier sites with a better view. Our site overlooking the lake. We spent a week in the "lower" section and another week in the "upper" section. With a 14-day stay limit in a...
