Wayne and I are celebrating our second Thanksgiving of the year while on our Snowbird RV Adventure in Arizona. We abandoned our RV in Tucson last February and just returned to make sure all was well. While we are here, we will be exploring regional parks in relative safety from COVID.

Even during this difficult year, Thanksgiving is a great time to step back and reflect on all of our blessings. Wayne and I live in the best place on earth and have many wonderful friends. 

If you're in the States, we hope your Thanksgiving is peaceful and joyful. -- Wayne and Margy

Wayne and Margy's 2020-2021 Snowbird RV Adventure

Lazydays electric RV storage.
Wayne and I have left our Powell Lake float cabin home to get some winter sun and warmth in southern Arizona. We'll be away from Powell River until early January. Until then, I invite you to visit my Margy Meanders blog to keep up with our travels.

*************
 
Our 2019-2020 Snowbird RV Adventure abruptly ended with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic last spring. At the end of February, we left our Sunseeker RV in electric storage at the Tucson Lazydays KOA Resort fully intending to return at the end of March to complete our trip. That never happened.
 
Then summer came with 100+ degree temperatures. We decided it was best to wait. We had reservations in place for this November. We debated long and hard about the safety of traveling at this time.

We decided RV travel was a form of self-isolation. We only need to shop for groceries once a week and won't interact with others in an unsafe manner. We wear our masks, social distance, use sanitizer and wash our hands just like at home. Now it's our home on wheels.

We invite you to join us to safely explore Arizona. We've again planned our Snowbird RV Adventure in three parts.

Wayne at the wheel.
Part 1 - We left Bellingham on November 15. We flew Allegiant Airlines direct to Mesa, Arizona. The Tucson direct flight was no longer available. We rented a car and drove to our first destination, the Lazydays KOA Resort to pick up our RV waiting there for us in storage. For 36 days we will explore and camp our way around southern Arizona. In mid-December, we will put the RV back into storage and fly north to Bellingham for a Christmas winter break.

Part 2 - The second leg of our trip will start on January 31. We will fly south again to pick up our RV from Lazydays. We'll spend 29 days camping in the foothills east of Phoenix and visiting Tempe, Arizona. We usually attend women's college softball, but that may not be possible this year. In late February we'll put our RV back into storage once more at Lazydays fly to Bellingham for a second break.

Part 3 - The last segment of our adventure will start on March 28. After a short stay at Lazydays we will spend 29 days between the Phoenix and Tucson regions. Again, we might get to watch some women's softball either in person, or via television. In late April we'll put our RV in storage one last time at Lazydays and fly back to Bellingham for the last time. Our Sunseeker will spend the summer for a second time waiting for our return in November 2021.

When it's safe again to travel, we'll fly to Tucson to check on our RV For now it's safe in electric storage at the Tucson Lazydays KOA RV Resort. -- Wayne and Margy
