We have an insane calling to be where we aren't

Mesa, AZ What were we thinking?


The temp was 104 degrees when we got here and went up to 107 over the next few days. This is not the norm in October but what is normal anymore? We had gone a lot of miles and needed a good rest. After getting into our spot, Mike plugged us in to get the AC going and nothing happened. The fix it men were here in no time and fixed up our 30 amp. The AC was up and running and running...  It was good to catch up with some friends that we hadn't seen in quite a while and get settled in. We have never stayed  in a 55+ community but decided to give it a shot . The last time I worked at the hospital here, we stayed in a beautiful apartment complex provided by the hospital. But we didn't have much of a chance to get to know people. It looks like there is going to be quite a bit to do here. We have already met several nice couples.

Becoming full time RVers has been a learning experience for us. Sometimes, it can be overwhelming because it such a change. We are figuring it out as we go even though I was traveling nurse for many years. This is different and we like it.

The music in the courtyard is a hoot.
We have been getting up early to ride our bikes and playing pickleball in the evenings.
As much as we enjoy the Superstition Mountains, I guess we will wait until it gets cooler to go for a hike.

  1. So are you settled in Mesa for a while? it's too bad it's so darn hot, fingers crossed you get some relief soon. At least if it's too hot to hike at least there is pickleball!!!

    1. You are so right. I didn't know it would be record temps when I accepted the contract. We can also work on our billards which is bad in the afternoons.
