We have arrived!
After 1442 miles and 190 gallons of diesel, we have arrived in Benson, AZ at the Butterfield RV Park. We will workamp here for the winter. Kathy will be at either the front desk or the store and I will be working the swimming pool. We actually got here yesterday after a stop at the Dream Catcher Escapee Park in Deming, AZ. That had been over 310 miles and we were tired. Yesterday's run was an easy, flat 170 miles. For the entire trip we averaged 7.7 mpg on the motorhome, not bad considering we had some serious hills to climb in New Mexico. We will start our jobs tomorrow and then we will get a better handle on what there is to do in this area. We know there is a lot and we are constantly hearing about more cool stuff to see. I will get better about taking the camera and do a better job reporting.
