We arrived here yesterday for a ten-day stay, during which time we’ll visit friends in the area.

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

Here’s a Google Earth image of the resort…

This is not a real-time image. If you look closely on the lower left you can see the image was made June 24, 1992, The units on the left and center are permanent mobile homes. Streets H, I and J are vacant because it’s June. Right now they are mostly full of RV’s like ours. We’re in site I-23 as indicated by the red “X”.

Here’s a photo of our site…

Looking north on I street you can see us as the fourth unit on the left…

After we got settled in, we took a walk around the park to acquaint ourselves with the place. They have a nice book-exchange library so we spent some time finding new books to read. Which then led us to inventorying our current book stash. Mary and I are both avid readers so we have a lot of books ready for exchanging as well as waiting to be read. Mary out-stashes me by a factor of 2 to 1.

Later in the afternoon we went to the post office to pick up the tabs for the motorhome which had been forwarded to us. Then a visit to my home VFW Post #7968 for a cool beer. In the evening we went to my home Moose Lodge #2039 for a meal.

The park is nice and clean with lots of amenities and activities. It’s also very conveniently located only about one mile from downtown Apache Junction. There are many parks like this one in the Apache Junction area. Many folks spend their entire winter in one warm and sunny location.

The normal daily rate here is $34 a day. Because it is owned by Encore which also owns Thousand Trails RV Resorts of which we are members…we get to stay here for only $3.00 a day. Such a deal!
