Sedona Red Rock Country!

Well I’m very disappointed. I’ve been hoping to see a live armadillo, and just read that they don’t live in Arizona! I guess I’ll have to cross that one off my wish list.

Here is the recipe for the wonderful chicken ranch roll-ups that Kathy brought the other day. https://tinyurl.com/hrlrky4

This morning we packed up and hooked up, not without some frustration. I have an iBall hitch camera that I LOVE but it’s been behaving badly. There’s a camera part that you stick on the back of the car and a little video screen that plugs into a cig. lighter outlet. It works perfectly if I plug it into my DC outlet in the camper but when I plug it into the car, all I get is a screen full of static. ??? It used to work, and I can’t figure out what’s causing the static. I tried unplugging the GPS and that didn’t make a difference. So anyway, I’m back to trying to hitch up the old way, and it takes 14 or 15 tries to get it just right, getting in and out of the car each time, and then I’m all hot and bothered and my face is it’s usual summer hue of beet red.

We are now camped off Red Rock Road (FR 525) not far from Hwy. 89A, the main drag between Cottonwood and Sedona. It’s not a great campsite but it’s got good cell signal, there aren’t any cholla cactus here and I was tired of driving. It’ll be fine for the next 4 days. The road seems very busy and people go fast so there’s going to be a lot of dust in our future.  I’ve read that all the Pink Jeep tours go down this road so I guess I’ll have to take the car and wander farther in to see what’s what.  I’ve got a nice but distant view of the red rocks here but I can’t wait to see them up close.

Oh and I found out why there were a billion people in Wal-Mart on Saturday…stocking up with junk food for Super Bowl Sunday! You can tell I’m a big sports fan, hmm?

    For hitching up how about putting a piece of tape on the camper high up directly in line with the hitch? I noticed my camper came with a piece on it.Also another trick I have seen a straight stick or dowel tall enough to see with a ball or even flag tape on the end of each dowel.Tape one to the hitch one to the ball and when they meet together you are there or very close? They sell this set up but I am sure it can be made cheap. It is fun to see all the places you camp at.

    As always I enjoy your posting this blog.
    I have a suggestion ,to increase hits on your blog. In your tagged and post headings I would mention a frames and aliners. I have looked high and low and yours is the only full timing blog I can find using an a frame. It sure might increase your hits and amazon sales.
    I should be ordering some stuff from them in the next couple days so watch for it to make sure you get credit..
