We had to move from the site we were at… the electrical pedestal died. It started about 1 a.m. with electronics going on and off, beeping each time they did. Finally the power just didn’t come on in the trailer. Dave used the generator to make his coffee this morning, shortly after that the power came back on. After checking the electrical pedestal he found when we were plugged in to our sites receptacle it made a crackling noise, if he plugged us in to the next sites receptacle it was good. To make a long story short the Ranger told us to move. So we buttoned up the trailer, found another site and moved.

This morning we signed up for the Thanksgiving Dinner they hold here at the park. There are 3 sittings, 11:30, 2:30 and 4:30 so we picked the 2:30. They serve turkey and all the trimmings, should be fun.

We also saw a little of Cottonwood today on our way to pick up the mail. It is a larger town than I expected, a large Walmart, Home Depot, a number of restaurants and various shops. Should be a great place to pick up anything we might need.

Hey you guys. It's Lisa. You are only about 45 minutes to an hour away from where Dad lives. He's in Prescott. Just wanted to tell you not to miss out on going over to Jerome. It's a really cool little hippie town now. Used to be an Indian town. check it out, it's worth it. :)

Hi Lisa! Thanks for the suggestion, there seems to be a lot of interesting places to visit in this area.
Thanks again,
