Leaving the Balloon Fiesta on Day 4, Now in Casa Grande, AZ - October 11, 2017

The balloons all took off again on Tuesday, the 10th. This was day 4 of the festival. I took a picture of the mass of balloons overhead (last one, I promise) as we were packing up and getting ready to head out.

We actually cut short our stay here. We did 2 nights just down the road at the Route 66 Casino, and 4 more at balloon field. We saw all we wanted to in Albuquerque and the balloon festival and decided to head out a day early.

South on Interstate 25, and across on highway 26 to Deming, NM. A 250 mile travel day. Weather was perfect, no wind and temps in the 60s.

We decided to stop at the Escapee park in Deming, Dream Catcher RV Park. This was a good stop on the way to Yuma. $20.39 for a nice FHU spot.

We dumped our tanks after boondocking 4 days, and Donna did laundry while we were there, and that's just about it.

In the morning, we headed further west towards Yuma.

Entering Arizona.

Our plan was to stop for a couple of days at the Del Sol Casino in Tucson and boondock in their parking lot. But the temps were going to be around 96 degrees. I think our cats (and us) might find that a little uncomfortable, so we went to plan B. We chose the Escapee park in Casa Grande just off Interstate 8, Rover's Roost. We had never been there, and they had a special deal for first time visitors. $90.00 for a week and you get 3 additional days (plus taxes and electricity). So we will do 10 days here.They were very friendly as we got checked into space 22.

We have both AC units on and we are happy ... so are our cats.

Going to go explore the Casa Grande area tomorrow.

Fergs .... out!
