RV Club goes camping

Deb Semrai

What a cool campout we had in April! Literally cool! The altitude at Fool Hollow Lake Campground near Show Low provided much lower temperatures than in Green Valley, but we managed to get toasted and toasty.

The social hour each day and the campfire at night gave us the opportunity to get to know one another even better. Many thanks to our wagon masters Skip and Julie Pence and Jim and Sue Mandels for all their hard work and planning.

During the days a majority of folks enjoyed walking around the beautiful lake. There was a great walking path. A lot of shopping, relaxing and reading filled many people’s days as well.

Of course, there was a golf game planned. Again, thanks to Michael Bush! The Bison Golf Club is surrounded by spectacular scenery; however, one could easily get to know the folks in the neighborhood whose backyard is right on the edges of the course. Not only was the golf terrific, but it also included lunch. Can’t go wrong with that.

A few of us chose to get off the beaten path and take our all-terrain vehicles on the Rim Road, a dirt road that follows the edge of the Mogollon Rim with its vast, breathtaking views.

Wednesday evening we invaded the Los Corrales Restaurant for dinner. The service and the food were excellent considering they had 32 people to keep happy. I had my first Cadillac Margarita and frankly, will never go back to a Chevy!

Summertime, as you know, means many seasonal people have gone to their other home. Things slow down a bit, especially outdoor activities, but lookout when fall comes! So far we have an awesome trip planned to Las Vegas in December during the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. There is also a Cowboy Christmas Gift Show with over 400 vendors set up in a 400,000 square foot area showing off their unique western gifts. It goes without saying; there are many ways to part with your money in Vegas!
