Adventure Day :     74

Date Arrived:     17 December 2003    

Date Departed:     04 March 2004    

Hub Area:      Phoenix, Arizona

Actual Location:     City : Phoenix     State : Arizona

Summary Title :     Phoenix, Arizona Area Visit Summary

Summary :     Arrived in the Phoenix, Arizona Homeport (with my actual location Phoenix, Arizona too.). The main reasons I selected Phoenix, Arizona as my Hub was I have some very close friends who live here. My friends are Jean and Wally Latall who live in the Cave Creek, Arizona area. Wally and I were stationed togather in Navy where we both served at the Naval Submarine Base, New London which is actually located in Groton Connecticut.

I have come to visit them almost every year since 1988, for a week or two in January of each year. Living in Boise, Idaho where the winters are milder than most northern states, they are still cold and miserable enough where getting outa of it for a week or so is nice.

The Phoenix area is a great place to spend the winter months. Later after my current adventure is over I plan to spend many of my winters in this area. I do have to say though, that I will be outa here long before the summer hits!

While I was in the Phoenix area I stayed at the Desert's Edge RV Park, North Black Canyon Highway near Deer Valley Road and I10. I was in site 403. I enjoyed my stay here the management and RV Park employees were all very nice and helpful.

I originally planned to stay only one month, but made two schedule changes. First to extend my stay an additional month. Then just before I was to depart at the end of the second month, I caught a cold and decided I didn't need the aggrivation and extended my stay an additional week.

Here are some of the places I visited while I was in Phoenix, Arizona:
