Our Location: Quail Ridge Rv Park, Hauchua City, Arizona
Lordsburg was too noisy for me, and I didn’t sleep well at all. It’s not a place I would stay again unless pressed to do so. I would however next time try the Rest Area at Gage, NM as it would be easier to get away from the big rigs that run all night. The rest area filled up with at least 3 big rigs, and 4 or 5 RV/Campers.

A cool night that hovered around the freezing mark but the sun warmed everything up quickly. We were up and ready to go after a bit of a leg stretch before 8:30 AM. We didn’t want to rush as we didn’t have far to go today. Only a couple of hours drive. A stop at a rest area on I-10 on the Arizona side of the state line was our only stop today. We motored right along with no issues once again.

We reached Quail Ridge RV Resort on North Yucca Drive in Hauchua City just before noon. Upon checking in we were happy to find they had a spot for us as they are pretty much full now. We were sent to spot #137 which ironically was exactly the same spot we had last year. However the folks in the spot were not planning on leaving any time soon and so another trip to the office had us finding a different spot. Some discussions back and forth with the office lady and we settled on spot #28 on the front east side. Big spot, easily backed into but we were later told we could have just pulled through from the back. The lady in the office told us it was a back in and so we did. Anyway, not a big deal we met our neighbour to the west of us, he's a retired Marine from Texas. Interesting fellow for sure.

Called dad, left a message and then just spent the rest of the day doing not much. I’m finding the lack of sleep last night and the couple hours drive today kind of wore me out and I think I’ll sleep much better tonight.
|Very scenic rest area in Arizona on I-10 West.|
Warm enough to have the windows open and the big door as well for a while. I’m looking forward to sitting outside reading over the next number of days. Riley even had on short pants today. A sign that we have arrived in the land of warmth!!!!!
|A few more views of the drive today.|
So there you have it, nothing exciting but a positive day all the day same. Some great views on our drive today. Some plans for a day or two of day trips while we’re here but nothing too much. I do hope you enjoyed your stop here at A long and lonesome highway and that no matter where you are that you too had a good day!!!
|It took me a while to figure out what is odd about the truck. It's a big hipped truck with the outside wheels missing so they could get it on the trailer.|
Until next time….take care, be safe,
