Well it’s that time of year again for moving the wheelestate from Yarnell back to the North Rim at Grand Canyon for the summer. As you know, I already dropped the truck camper at a friend’s in Kanab, Utah. Just can’t tow a 5th-wheel with a camper in the truck but sure am happy to have it for weekend summer play. I’m a two RV, one person family.
My biggest concern when I get ready to pack things up is getting the 5th-wheel hitch back into the truck because it is way too heavy for me, or most of the seniors around here, to lift. I got lucky this year as a neighbor brought his Kabota over and with a chain easily lifted the hitch into the back of the truck. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos.
So now the rest is up to me. Not too difficult a job to pack away a few chachkies and push a button to pull the slides in. No problem backing into the hitch as I can see it out the truck window. In fact, now that the driveway is wider I can even back the big beast out on my own. Well, I do have a few spotters so I don’t bump anything in the process.
Tuesday I’m heading to Flagstaff, like usual, to stop for a few days and stock up on groceries. The North Rim is 85 miles away from the nearest shopping in Kanab. But this year I’ll be staying at a different RV park than my usual Flagstaff KOA. A friend is parked at the Kit Carson RV Park on the west edge of town so I’m going to give this place a try and will let you know what I think.
So I’m going from this view…
…to this view. Guess I should clean the windows.
Hopefully not this view from last year 4-27-14
I’m excited about returning for my 8th summer season at the Grand Canyon and look forward to sharing many stories and photos of my summer adventures. Are you coming for a visit?
