I am moved back down to the valley, about 6 weeks and 20 degrees of hot too soon. The original place I thought I had reservations decided they didn’t like the looks of my rig in their snooty park, so they denied me entrance at 2:30pm on a hot afternoon. I had to have electricity to keep the cats cool with the air conditioning. Mike had them in the car for the move, but that wouldn’t work for the evening, and I couldn’t boondock and have air conditioning. I was making frantic calls around for a place for at least one night with power. At one of the parks when I gave my name I heard “(shadowmoss)! This is (former office manager where I used to live in the mobile home). Sure, come on over’. I was welcomed not just for a night, but they also have a fall special and I’m here until the end of the year.
I will NEVER, EVER stay at a Cal Am resort, no matter what I am living in.
Mesa Spirit is a really nice, friendly park with better facilities and cheaper with all that is included in the base rent. I won’t be able to afford to stay after the special price ends, but I’m good for now.
I’m hiding waiting for the temperature to drop. It is still 100* during the day, and unlike Payson there is no shade here. I came down early because the park in Payson is doing construction and needed me to move. The cats have forgiven me. They hate moving. It didn’t help that I took them to the rabies clinic at TSC for their rabies shots the night before we moved. Poor Rasta had to deal with a dog in line in front of us that looked at him intently, and it was obvious he was thinking ‘lunch!’. We all survived.
