Sunday, November 2 – We've been doing a little travel planning recently and thought we would throw it out to our readers to see if anyone had any suggestions on thing to do, see, or experience.  There is so much to see and experience in this great country, and no matter how much research we do, we always seem to miss something.  Of course, that gives us an excuse to return to areas we've been previously.


Our main focus is to spend the winter in the Arizona area, with a couple excursions into California and New Mexico.  We want to return to the RV Show in Quartszite, mainly to re-new friendships with the group we met the last time there in 2010.  It's a full-timer group once known as the Escapee's Class of 2009, but has since expanded welcoming many more RV'ers into the group.

2009 class

The other “big event” will be to attend Spring Training Major League Baseball in the Phoenix area.  Of course, this is where the Cleveland Indians train during March's Cactus League season.  Again, we did this back in 2012. and enjoyed it very much.  Marsha thinks this is going to be the Cleveland Indians’ year to win the pennant …... she's such a fan.  Paul enjoys them, but nothing like Marsha.


So, here's an rough outline of where we are headed, and the approximate time we will be there.  Of course, this is written in caulk and subject to change.  If we're passing through an area where you are staying, let us know and maybe we can plan a rendezvous.
