October 19, 2013 - we "flew" down by way of Walmarts and Casinos. Washington, Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Nevada.
|Tulalip Casino, Tulalip, Washington|
Our first real stop was Overton, Nevada where we stayed at the Wildlife Refuge. We were here the year before. Great place.
|Pretty butterfly - Overton, NV|
|Valley of Fire - very beautiful park|

|Sunset at Quartzsite|
|Edi @ Da Boyz in Yuma's Old Town|
|Surprise! Buying our beloved Medjol dates at Dateland|
Our next stop, Pilot Knob BLM just to the west of Yuma. One of our favourite places.
|That's us. Pretty empty in November|
Again we were visited by the stalkers, Terry and Edi as well as friends Terry and Judy.
We stayed at Pilot Knob until the 2nd of December and headed to the Escapee Park in Casa Grande. Casa Grande is like home to us and we like to spend Christmas there with our many, many friends.
During our time in Casa Grande, I was thrilled to reunite with Corrine, my best friend from high school that I hadn't seen in more than 44 years.

We didn't want to have Christmas dinner in the Clubhouse with 100 people so we made an intimate Christmas dinner for six in friends Joan and Ken's "shed".
