I’m ranting today. Not about politics. I have not been blogging regularly and suddenly, I’m asked to sign in with my password that I haven’t used in years and I can’t remember.  But, to get a new password for my blogspot blog, I must have them send it to me on my g-mail address, which password I also can’t seem to find on my 8 pages of passwords. Crossed out and changed,  I have no idea which one is current. Google bought blogger and everything has to be google. Google is trying to take over the world and I try to avoid all things Google.

My frustration is the rant. I hate a zillion passwords. We are told not to use the same one for everything. But a new password for everything is not working. Every time you have a snag you change your password.  In a hurry. And Google bought blogger. Grrr! In the interest of my sanity I have to laugh at my self-made password prison. Maybe I can find a quote that addresses passwords?  Hmm. Unlikely.

But there are a lot of them about fools.

“The world is full of fools and; and he who would not wish to see one, should break his mirror.”   Boileau

“There is a foolish corner even in the brain of a sage.”  Aristotle

As for prison:  “We are all prisoners, but some of us are in cells…” Kahlil Gibran

Apache Junction, AZ

Six Blog entries ago, I reported that my Yuma sinus infection was coming alive and how I drove down to San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico for my medicine which has cured it in the past. I also mentioned that I’ve come to believe that agricultural airborne contamination was the cause behind my problem. The medicine is working and only a very minor residual pain and swelling remains which I hope will continue to disappear soon. I took my last remaining pill yesterday. Anyways, since I had completed my planned activities in Yuma, I thought I’d leave early, get away from that airborne contamination and help the healing process. My next planned stop was Apache Junction to visit with my good friends Aaron and Cheryl for a few days.

I departed Yuma on Tuesday and drove the about 200 miles to South Phoenix where I spent the night in a very quiet RV parking lot at the Wild Horse Casino, not wanting to fight the afternoon rush-hour traffic. On Wednesday I drove the remaining about 35 miles to the Countryside RV Resort. This park is an Equity Life Sharing facility which is also the parent company of Thousand Trails RV Resort of which I am a member. Because of that fact, I’m able to stay in this beautiful park for only $3 a night which includes electricity, water and sewer hookup. Such a deal!

I’ve been to Apache Junction a few times over the years. While the park is on the outskirts of Apache Junction, the area is still close to Phoenix and in general too much traffic congestion for my liking. Give me the wide open spaces!

The photo below outlines the resort as seen by Google Earth and is not a real-time photo. In reality the park is more than 95% full.


Countryside RV Resort has 560 spaces. According to Wikipedia, Apache Junction has 51 RV parks. Here’s the link…,_Arizona

I’m booked into the park for nine days and I plan to leave on January 8th and drive the about 150 miles South to Tucson where I will meet my jet-setting life partner Mary who flies in on the 9th. After 3-4 days in that area, we’ll head East and expect to arrive in New England in late May. The only thing firm item on our entire trip is being scheduled in New Orleans, LA, from February 8th to 22nd for Mardi Gras. I also expect we will arrive at Mary’s home in Murphys, CA about mid-October. Be sure to mark this Blog as a favorite and follow along with us as we travel the road of life together!

Happy New Year, Y’all!
