Stickin' in Wickenburg

We've been kickin' it in Wickenburg for the past few days now. We were going to pop in and see Bob and the gang but they were gone by the time we got here...we'll see each other down the road I'm sure. We like it a lot up here. We are up on a mountain top, away from the road and we have a 360 degree panoramic view...maybe 345! There is the main dirt road that we walk Savannah on every morning and every evening...everyone getting their exercise! The road is also nice because Savannah doesn't get little burs, from the cholla (pronounced choy-ya), in her feetsies. Our walks are so enjoyable due to the peacefulness of the mountain, the view is spectacular, the air is just fresh and we are all together. We have hiked some nice little trails ending up with more amazing views and fresh air! Nature's landscaping is different out here. We have seen some of the plant life before but not this much packed in together, it's cool. Just watch the Nana Bug off the happens, she's a dog, that cholla will get her and you and anything else that comes near it, that stuff is crazy!

It's been the perfect camp for us. We get a full signal for 4g wifi from our Millenicom device, all of the main TV channels come in, we are left alone by ATV'ers and Jeeps that we've seen and like I said before, the view is just amazing. Now this is what we have been talkin' about! Another nice little addition is that our friend Kevin stayed when Bob left and he has now joined us atop of our little mountain. We are about a 1/4-1/2 mile away, perfect distance for privacy but also close enough to walk to each others camp! It's always nice to have chill company around!

We are really enjoying our time here. The town of Wickenburg is really cute and looks like it has a lot to offer, it's really nice to see a town like this's been a while. The Safeway in town is where we will shop, it's only about 6 miles from our camp site...not too shabby! I think we are truly going to try to stay here for a few weeks. Our spot has everything we need: wifi, tv, view, privacy, sunshine, peace and happiness.

The little things....





  1. I am glad to see your having a good time. Tell Kevin,I said hello!

  2. Hey we are about 70 miles North of you... Cheri, Charlene, Mike, Bob and I... Come on up, we get a 4G signal and the gas is about .30C cheaper... We are in the Prescott NF N of Paulsen AZ, directions are easy and on Bobs blog, just follow 89 N, a beautiful drive... Would love to see you two and for Gods sake drag Kevin along, he has been there too long...

  3. Thanks Steve. I'm not sure we're quite ready for the wind and cooler temps just yet, but we keep you all in mind all the time! I'm sure we'll be seeing you soon and hopefully Captain Kev will still be hanging out as well. Til then, think heavy thoughts with all of that wind whipping things around! ;)
