March 23, 2011 – Headed to Verde Valley (70 miles north of Phoenix) – Rolling Shoe Box

The police were working the freeways hard, think maybe it is a fund raiser to repair the freeways, and they need it. After about 6 hours of hard driven, we arrived in Cottonwood Arizona which meant we over shot the campground by 3 miles. They did not place any signs out front like we are used to seeing, and the highway sign marked the distance off the road, rather than the distance to turn off. So fortunately Walmart had a place to turn around. We are happily settled in now, we have a little grass in our site, but the RV’s are parked in tight, usually the parks we inhabit leave more space between the RV’s, but maybe land is more expensive as we move west in the southern states. Well that is about all we have to say today, just tired from a long drive.

Have a good evening and a good night….
