Desert Shadows RV Resort, Casa Grande, AZ.

                                                     February 29 ,2012

We hooked up and did our checks, and darn....

the right turning signal wasn't working again. Joe had to shut down the Nest and came out to try to fix our problems. After about 30 minutes Joe decided we would have to go without it working again. He could not figure why it was not working again.

The left brake on the Nest wasn't working either. After getting all the screws out but one, the light came on. I told Joe, so he put the screws back in. We did a check again, and I realized the left hand turn light was what lite up, not the left brake on the coach. Joe was behind the wheel and wanted to just go on, and fix it later, so we left.

Shortly after we left, an alarm went off. I asked Joe what the alarm was for, and he told me it was for the jacks. He told me that when he put the jacks up this morning, the alarm went off indicating they were up. Because we have had a problem with them going up from the day we bought our new Nest, he checked to make sure they were both up by looking underneath our coach. One of them was down just a bit, and because the alarm went off, he thought it would be fine. He said he thought maybe we hit a bump, and the jack slipped down enough to set off the alarm again. We took the next exit, and were blessed to find a gas station that was big enough for us to pull in, get the jack up all the way with a two by four, and get back out and on the road, with out having to unhook the car. Another lesson learned. If the jack is down even a bit, get the two by four out, and get it up, before we hit the road. The picture above was taken as we approach Tucson, AZ.
 
When we left Benson, we were at 3700 ft elevation. We had to go up to 4200 ft from Benson and then we headed back down. Tucson is at 2511 ft above sea level.

I liked the flower design on the base of the over passes.

The traffic in Tucson was a bit hectic at times...

more city art...


but we were glad to get out in the country again.

Hwy. 10 takes you past a small area of  the Saguaro National Park.
 
As we got closer to Casa Grande, there were some green field of what I am not sure.


Where there are no field, the landscape has small brush.

Our drive was only 115 miles today.

We wanted to stay here for a week, but we could only get in for 3 days. The park is a ROD campground, so we stay free for 3 nights.

The resort is in the city of Casa Grande, AZ. and is basically a large parking lot in the middle of a neighborhood, with a cement wall around the park.

Our site is 201 which is the 2nd to the entrance gate. A bit noisy, because we hear the street traffic and the clinking noise when the tires of of the incoming cars hit  the metal ground gates.

After we set up we looked around the park. The pool and jacuzzi area.

Outdoor shower before you use the facilities.

Outdoor kitchen/grill in the pool area.

Horse shoes anyone? The park has 362 sites, and we are at 1396 ft elevation. Thank you Lord for getting us here safe and sound!
