Good Sam Rally/Sedona Road Trip
We took in our first Good Sam National Rally in Phoenix Az and as long as we were going to be in the area we decided to take in an Angels Spring Training game and spend a couple of days in the Sedona, Az area. The weather for the trip turned out to be just about perfect, lot's of sunshine.
We started out for Quartzsite to overnight and pick up a friend with her rig, she was our tail gunner for the trip. We made a short stop at the Patton Museum at the Chiriaco Summit, CA exit. After breakfast at the local cafe we headed out for our overnight destination. We stopped at the Flying J on the Az side and gassed up, cheaper than Ca.
The next morning we headed out, with Karen behind us, to Phoenix International Speedway, where the Good Sam Rally was being held. We arrived mid-morning and got lucky and didn't have to wait in line to get parked. Parking was tight but we were lucky to have a van beside us so we had some extra space. After we got all set up we headed out to check out all the vendors. Oh boy...lot's of stuff.
Every evening we had entertainment, Bowzer, Bill Cosby, Martina McBride. Great stuff!
On Monday, we packed up and headed across town to Apache Palms RV park in Tempe, Az to catch an Angels Spring Training game. Great weather and we enjoyed watching the game, even though they lost. RV park was fine and we would stay there again.
On Tuesday we packed up for a couple of days stay at Distant Drums RV Resort in Campe Verde, Az. We wanted to do some siteseeing in the Jerome, Sedona area. Distant Drums is a very nice Resort very well kept and clean. Will stay there again if we are in the area.
Our site seeing took us to Jerome, Az, Montezuma Castle National Monument, Dead Horse Ranch, Sedona and the surrounding area. Lots of pretty desert scenery to enjoy.
After enjoying a couple of days in the area we had to pack up and head back home. We overnighted in Quartzsite again and Karen got set up in her winter site again.
We had a great time and I hope you enjoy the pictures, Pictures were taken by Robin, Karen and myself.
