Wayne and Margy's 2021-22 Snowbird RV Adventure

Lazydays RV storage.
Wayne and I have left our Powell Lake float cabin home to get some winter sun and warmth in Arizona then New Mexico.

RV travel can be 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 are vaccinated, wear masks, social distance, use sanitizer and wash our hands just like at home. For now, our Sunseeker RV is our home on wheels.

Wayne at the wheel.
Part 1 - We left Bellingham on November 14. We flew Allegiant Airlines to Mesa, Arizona. This has been our route since they discontinued the Tucson direct flight. We got our Enterprise rental car and drove to the Lazydays KOA Resort to pick up our RV waiting in storage. For 36 days we will explore and camp our way around southern Arizona. In mid-December, we'll put the RV in storage and fly to Bellingham for a Christmas winter break.

Part 2 - The second leg of our trip will start on January 23. We will fly south to pick up our RV at Lazydays then spend 33 days camping in the foothills north and east of Phoenix. For the first time in three years we will stay in Tempe near Arizona State University to attend women's softball and basketball games. We are very excited about that! In late February, the RV will go back into storage once more so we can fly to Bellingham for a second break.  

Part 3 - The last segment of our adventure will begin on March 27. After a short stay at Lazydays we will spend a total of 35 days in southern Arizona, loop through southern New Mexico and back down through central Arizona. New Mexico is new for us, so that will be an adventure in itself. In late April, we will put our RV into storage one last time at Lazydays then fly to Bellingham for a summer in the cooler north. Our Sunseeker will spend the long hot summer for a third time waiting for our return in November 2022.

We hope you will follow along as our adventure unfolds. You can read all about it over at my Margy Meanders blog. -- Wayne and Margy


  1. You certainly left BC at a good time! Things are kind of crazy here, and there is so much devastation. I'll go over and add your other blog to my reader. Safe travels!

  2. Margy - on the road again! I have enjoyed your RV posts so much, and I look forward to tagging along for the journey! (We loved our recent vacation in New Mexico!)

  3. Seems like you just got back and now you are off again to warmer places.

  4. It sounds exciting. Not sure when or where my next adventure will be but you have got things down to a fine art.

  5. Safe travels and enjoy your warmer new location!

  6. Sounds like fun in the sun!
    Enjoy your trip Margy.

  7. Have fun in the sun!!! Love reading about your plans and am a tiny bit envious ... loved the RV life when we lived it full time (our 5-W was our first home for a dozen years or so!) and still do now when it is traveling in our tiny trailer. It is a great safe way to travel now too, as you say. Speaking of, how was the flight? I've heard a few horror stories from neighbors here, sure hope yours was OK.

  8. PS: We loved our time in New Mexico on our very first long RV trip. So much to see!!! Maybe you should plan to make your spring leg longer ))))
