||May 29, 2008
||Las Cruces, NM to Tucson, AZ

||June 14, 2008
||Williams, AZ to Sun Valley (Navajo county), AZ
|| Root (yes Root!) 66 RV Park - okay for an overnight - just hookups and nothing fancy. Very handy for touring the nearby Painted Desert/Petrified Forest
||June 15, 2008
||Sun Valley, AZ to Prewitt, NM
|| Bluewater Lake State Park - run-down and poor security. You DO NOT want to get near this place on the weekends - very popular with the locals. People driving in and out all hours of the day and night
||June 20, 2008
||Prewitt, NM to Albuquerque, NM
||American RV Park - Friendly, attentive staff. Lots of amenities. Sites need to be longer - we had to park our Jeep sideways so we would clear the street
||June 23, 2008
||Albuquerque, NM, to Cochiti Lake, NM
|| Cochiti Lake Corp. of Engineers Recreation Area - nice! Large sites. Whoever designed the electrical layout didn't have a clue - the pedestals are on the wrong side of the campsites!
||June 27, 2008
||Cochiti Lake, NM to Santa Fe, NM
|| Santa Fe Skies RV Park - overrated and overpriced. Narrow and unlevel sites
||June 30, 2008
||Santa Fe, NM to Canyon, TX

||July 7, 2008

||Oasis RV Park - always a favorite overnight stop on I-35 - easy in and out and long pull-throughs. Passport America park
||July 8, 2008
||South Haven, KS to Eaglesville, MO
||Eagle Ridge RV Park - old with lots of trees that need to be trimmed up. We hit several branches on our way in and out. 50 amp power didn't work - paid for 50 and got 30. Only about three or four pull-throughs. This is our second or third time here and we won't be back
||July 9, 2008
||Eaglesville, MO to Forest City, IA
|| Winnebago Rally Park for the Grand National Rally - our first! We arrived about ten days early to have some service done. We stayed at Rally Park and the Visitor's Center. We always enjoy our time in Forest City
||July 27, 2008
||Forest City, IA - Clear Lake, IA
|| Oakwood RV Park - wow full hookups! We had only electric for two weeks while we were in Forest City. Oakwood is a hidden jewel!!
||July 28, 2008
||Clear Lake, IA to Forest City, IA
||Whoops - the right rear brake light still isn't working! Back to FC. They replaced the turn-signal multi-function switch on the steering column. Finally it's fixed!
||July 30, 2008
||Forest City, IA to Walnut, IA
|| Red Carpet Inn and RV Park - what a dump! Don't bother!
||July 31, 2008
||Walnut, IA to Henderson, NE
|| Prairie Oasis RV Park - nice place. It's an old KOA so the sites are narrow, but plenty long.
||August 1, 2008
||Henderson, NE to Ogallala, NE
|| Country View Campground - excellent overnight stop. Friendly owner, and the longest sites I have ever seen - they must be 100' long!
||August 3, 2008
||Ogallala, NE to Colorado Springs, CO
|| Mountaindale Cabins & RV Resort - nice place, wooded but the premium sites are mostly satellite-friendly
||August 6, 2008
||Colorado Springs, CO to Ridgway, CO
|| Ridgway State Park - very nice SP with FULL hookups. The better sites are closest to the river
||August 6, 2008
||Ridgway, CO to Silverton, CO
|| Peaks of Silverton RV Park - new park and one of the best in the area. Silverton is a great place to base out for for 4-wheeling in the San Juan Mountains
||August 14, 2008
||Silverton, CO to Haviland Lake, CO
|| Haviland Lake Forest Service Campground - 18 miles North of Durango. Only electrical hookups, scattered water faucets and *NO DUMP*. This CG was not designed for my 40' coach and if you look at the picture, our front tires are way off the ground and the electric pedestal is on the wrong side :-(
||August 15, 2008
||Haviland Lake, CO to Belen, NM
|| La Mirada B&B and RV Park - we figured this was about half-way between Haviland Lake and Las Cruces and look pretty nice from my Internet research. It wasn't too bad - see my comments attached to the picture
||August 16, 2008

||August 22, 2008
||Ft. Davis, TX - Home!
||Whoo-hoo.. praise the Lord we are home safely and had a great time!!
