I think we both feel as though we’re “home” for a while. I’m not sure how that happens when you live and travel in your home all the time, but we somehow feel settled here in Sierra Vista for the time being. Today we met the owner of the RV park and paid for the month we’ll be here and then we drove around to some of the parks we didn’t see yesterday before we decided on this one. More choices for later this winter, after Quartzite, or another year.
The frustration of the day was trying to get the DirecTV dish to find satellites. No luck so far, and even less luck talking to DirecTV about the problem. We were sold a protection plan that we were told would take care of just this sort of thing, but now they say it isn’t applicable to RVs. So at the moment we’re back to square one and there is only one over-the-air channel available, NBC. Even that isn’t very clear but it’s at least a link to the news.
This evening we watched the movie Cars. We’ve mentioned several times lately that we felt like we were in that movie, since we’ve been on or near Route 66 quite a lot this fall. That movie really points out the plight of towns that are bypassed when highways are moved or new highways are built. Little towns everywhere resemble Radiator Springs!
I think I’m finally making headway on the change of address. We’ve only been trying since the first of July! One letter we got in the mail this week had the correct SD address, but our Wichita zip code. At least we don’t have a lot of bills to be delayed by the change.
I wish I could take pictures of the scenery here that would do it justice, but I think a panoramic camera would be the only way. There are just mountains all around and today with the puffy white clouds in the sky, it was breathtaking. We’ll work on that. Maybe a video if nothing else.
