Petrified Logs

After we left Kingman, we continued east on I-40.  Boy I thought California roads are bad, but I think Arizona might have us beat in the bad road department.  I was afraid to walk into the trailer to see what had bounced around or broke.  My Styrofoam wine carriers – the bottom of the Styrofoam all broke out, but luckily it was wedged into the cabinet, so no broken bottles.  Replacing the carrier and finding another cabinet for it – that could have been a BIG mess!  That was the worse of the damage.

We drove about 4 hours – one stop in Winslow Arizona for diesel (loving the fact that the price keeps going down the further we get from home), and arrived at the park a little after noon – or 1pm with the time change.  OK RV Park in Holbrook is the one we chose for this stop.  It is right off I-40, and there is a lot of places to eat and stores nearby.  Nice people in the office, and they even escort you to the site.  Some trees.  It got very windy in the afternoon, glad we had already arrived and were not on the road in that wind.

Long pull through sites

The park has laundry rooms, showers, 50 amp hook ups (much needed in this heat!), great wifi, hit and miss cable.  This park is near the petrified forest, but as they have a great display of petrified logs outside of the office, no need to venture out to the park (the park wasn’t on our “must visit list”).  This is a great overnight spot, as the pull through sites are very long so we didn’t have to disconnect.
