It was only about an hour yesterday morning to Mesa where we will spend almost a week sightseeing and visiting friends and relatives. It's always a risk choosing campgrounds on line, and we drove through Mesa to the address with trepidation as the city appeared rougher and rougher. This campground--as most city ones are--is pretty close quarters, and most of the park is permanent mobile homes and long term campers. But one section is for transients like us, and Ivan, the young man who does maintenance, couldn't have been more helpful in getting us parked, leveled, hooked up and set up. And we had a nice visit with him afterwards. Later we met a neighbor, a woman from Omaha fulltiming it on her own with a delightful chocolate Lab/Doberman mix named Snickers, and enjoyed a chat with her. There's even a tangelo tree back of our site. So all is well and one should not be too quick to make judgements.
I would appreciate it if Mother Nature would back off a bit. As I have said before, I am not a hot weather person, and the forecasted 90s for the next week when the average is supposed to be 76 is a bit over the top.
