As my Gram would say ...

... "Lawsy, it's hot!" It sure is, Gram, it sure is. I left Flagstaff's 70-something degree weather Saturday and arrived back at Caballo State Park yesterday afternoon to 100º heat! Oh how I wish that were hyperbole. I got so overheated that I was sick half the night last night.

The angle makes the rig look bigger than it is.


I'd like to blame the angle for my size, too. (photos courtesy Roxanne)

I can't move to higher elevations yet because I now have 2 rigs to deal with until I can get the old one cleaned out and sold. Today I parked the new one in one of the electric campsites to run the A/C and I brought Jake and the cats in with me. You wouldn't believe all the yowling and panicked running around and bolting for the door. And then there were the cats.

Tucker is panting, not talking. Ellen is chill.
He finally calmed down

Scored this awesome throw for the couch at the Goodwill in Flagstaff. Four bucks, baby!

I'll have to do most of the cleaning out work on the big rig during the cool morning hours. It's just too hot the rest of the day to be active and it doesn't cool down until after bed time. It's forecast to be over 100º the next four days then back down into the upper 90s. Oy!

  1. Lawsy, that IS hot! I hope Jake was at least grown-up about the whole thing.

    Love the big windows. And the new throw.

    2. That looks like a Laura Birch throw...very nice! I'm new to following along, I love all that space!

    3. Happy to have you along, Sondra! There is a surprising amount of storage space in this tiny thing. My goal is to NOT fill it all up.

    1. I feel extra sloth-like when it's hot. This weather is not conducive to getting a lot done.

      Thanks!

  4. Wow that's a lot of size difference! SO glad to hear you have the new beauty plugged in for AC. That's WAY too hot. Seems like you could hire a shuttle to get you and the rigs to the closest cooler elevation..hint..hint ;-)

  5. Tow set up looks good, you found a Laurel Burch throw ?? I have several of her things. I think I see her signature lower right on your picture. She's one of my favorite artists. She died too early.... (google her ) Cats Cats. Cats......

    1. Oh Kelly, that's so cool! I was already familiar with her cat stuff but didn't know she did dogs (and other things), too. Now I love it even more! I'm sorry she died young and had such a painful life. You'd never know it from her happy art. It must have given her great joy.

    2. I also have her The Sea Godess print , 2 of her big mugs and a carry bag (picture on the blog soon I'm told ) I always look for her stuff at thrift stores as "most" people do not readily know it..... :)

    3. Her stuff is very cool, Kelly. I saw a few prints on her online gallery that I'd really like to have.

  8. I'm so sorry you're getting those temps - that's hard to bear for more than a day or two. That's when elec sites are good. Love the rig, but it still looks big. I can't wait to see it in person. And I love your throw. It's beautiful and perfect for you with Jake and the cats.

    Little by little you'll get the job done on the bigger rig and before you know it you'll have it sold and be back to normal in your great new, smaller rig.

    Do you have those neck wraps that you put in water and then around your neck? (I put mine in the fridge when not using.) Or Frogg Toggs? I have both and in hot weather they SAVE me and Katie. I wrap the neck wraps around our necks, and put the Frogg Toggs over Katie's back and across my lap. What a DIFFERENCE that makes. :) You can get them at Wal-mart, or I'm sure on-line.

    1. I can't wait until I'm up in higher elevations where you are. Spent a couple of hours clearing out the old rig this morning and got a fair bit done. Brought of couple of loads of stuff over to the new one and can spend time in the A/C organizing this afternoon.

      I do have one of those neck wraps but not a Frogg Toggs. That would be a great thing for Jake.

  9. Wow! Love the A/C and space. I've been looking for RV blogs on women traveling solo with animals. Guess I found one.

  10. Getting things done in this heat is tough, but you seem to have it worked out. Good to have electric for this heat too.

    Are you going to use your potty in the new rig?

    1. I'm going with a simple composting toilet in the new rig but am not taking from the old one (too big).

      I'd be in trouble without electric right now, for sure.
