Back in Apache Junction AZ

We pulled into the RV park here in AJ the 3rd of Nov, it was so nice to get off the road. 

We loved our trip to Alaska and Canada and the west coast.  We did so much and saw so many beautiful sights, it was like a dream.  Would we do it again, not so sure, 7 months on the road was a long time, I was ready to settle down and just enjoy life for awhile.  We traveled almost 12,000 miles just in the MH.

We averaged 6.5 miles per gallon and spent almost $7000.00 for gas once again just for the MH. The highest for gas was in Prince George BC $1.45 a liter and I think that comes to approximately $5.48 a gallon.  I did not keep track of the truck that was more figuring then I wanted to do. 

The temps had been above normal for the first 6 weeks here, in the 70s and 80, sunny everyday, now we are having winter, a little rain and temps in the 50s and 60s, but we know it will warm up again.

Mike has been pretty busy since we got back to AZ.  He has been doing some work on our lot.  PB210228 PB210234 PB230236

We laid pavers and put up a gazebo, he also built a little deck and steps to get in the motorhome. 

The gazebo has worked out great with the chilly weather able to have happy hour in there and play Mexican Train and Farckle.
