Thursday, Oct. 23. Upon arriving in Mesa, we pulled into RV Renovators to get an estimate on the needed repairs to our unit. Doug and I played a guessing game as to how much it was going to cost us. Let’s just say we were both low! But, we had an expected high range limit. It was pretty close. Once that was taken care of, we found a site for the weekend at Mesa Regal RV Resort. It was not busy for the winter season yet and is a Passport America park. It is a big park with a couple of swimming pools, activities, etc., all the amenities you would expect for a park populated by so many ‘snowbirds’.
Each site has a grapefruit tree. The problem with the park is the narrow streets that are very hard when parking a long rig like ours. We had to turn down the first site because, with a tree on one side and a light pole on the other, there was no way we had enough room to back in. Thank goodness, the second one was much better and the site next to us, being empty, gave Doug more room to maneuver. We did make two attempts to get into the site. One direction was blocked by a park model that was right at the edge of their lot, so there was no room to spare to turn the truck. So Doug drove around the block from the opposite direction and managed to park us, just barely missing scrapes by the grapefruit tree. The trees really are overgrown and need severe pruning. We had the same narrow miss when leaving.
We had to be at RV Renovators on Monday. So from this….
To this…….! Camping in the repair lot! Isn’t our scenery wonderful!? Ha!
At least we have an electrical hookup. We don’t even know how many weeks we are going to be like this. At least we aren’t in a hotel!! But we have great expectations that the work will be done well. We have seen the work done on our friend’s RV, so we have seen nice work. I think I am going to have plenty of time to work on blogs and pictures for scrapbooking!!
LET THE SAGA BEGIN…..!!!
