Arriving Apache Junction
Weaver's Needle RV

 Snow in the pass

We had a beautiful drive into Apache Junction and only had one driving error due to a "no left turn sign" where we were supposed to turn left.  We put our faith in Gabby (our GPS named as such because she never shuts up) and she brought us to our home for two weeks.
We unhooked the iTowed in front of the office and an office helper directed Al to the spot and helped him back in.  Gene and Becki are right across from us.
 All set up and relaxing.
Gene and Becki had a couple of little problems, which seems to be normal for the RV life.
When they hooked up the fresh water line they didn't realize that the faucet in the tub/shower was on, and they had a little water flooding in the bathroom and bedroom.  Nothing a little mopping up with towels and a fan doesn't fix.  (and a beer)  Then they discovered that a little water had been left in some connection in their toilet and it froze and broke the line.  Luckily, there is an rv store close by and he got it fixed the next day.

    We have no one on our door side for about 3 spaces and the man on the other side works from 3pm to 11pm, so he is never around.  There is a unit for sale across from us and it is empty, so it is a good spot for people who have two dogs that love to bark at moving objects.  We can actually open the curtains.

     It is a great place for bike riding.  Extremely level!  In fact, I think the only unlevel spot is where our front wheels go.  We had to work for quite a while and put 3 boards under the front tires to get the iHome level, but we finally managed it to my perfectionist husbands liking.  I really have to say that this is the only drawback to this spot.  Finally able to put out all the rugs, chairs, coolers, bikes, etc.  We are home!
    The first thing we did was put our shorts and sandals on.  Then we hopped on the bikes.  The guys found the woodworking building and talked to one of the "old timers", not quite sure what that means, as everyone here is "old"!
They do recycle here, which is nice.

     We were told that bingo was going to be played in the hall at 7pm and that they served hot dogs, so we thought that sounded fine for dinner.  Got down there and found they quite serving hot dogs about 6:30.  We also realized that this was not just a little bingo game!  These were serious people with little dauber carriers!  We were definitely out of our league.  Ran into town and ate at a quick Mexican place.  
     I think we are really going to enjoy this little rv park.  Lot of little stand alone units that people have purchased and come and stay in for 4 to 6 months.  Everything is very neat and clean.  Lots of activities or the "seniors".
