We’ve Again Moved

Can anybody guess where we are tonight???  After striking out with our real estate search in Kingman we decided last night to head on down the road today.  Our dear friends Mike and Pat have two lots in the Escapees North Ranch Park in Congress, AZ—they have a home on one of their lots but the other lot they reserve for their friends’ use.  Let me tell you, we are glad Mike and Pat are our friends—what a wonderful spot!  The lot sits in the corner of one of the streets making backing in a breeze—our long trailer sits on one side of this big lot and the motorhome sits on the other.  A perfect fit!!

We only had about 100 miles to drive today so we didn’t get in a hurry arriving just before 2pm.  Mike and Pat got us situated on the lot and we agreed to meet at their house for happy hour at 4pm.  Pat also called Jerry and Caryl asking them to join us.  We met Jerry and Caryl when we were participating in the cowboy action shooting sport—they owned a home in Lewistown, MT and a lot here in North Ranch.  They eventually decided to spend all their time here in the Congress, AZ area buying a home on some acreage and selling their Lewistown, MT place.  It was so good to see both couples—it feels as if we haven’t been to the desert in a long time! 

We’ve unloaded the ATV’s for the first time since leaving Montana and rode one down to Mike and Pat’s for happy hour.  Ms. Emmi stayed home alone and geez was she not happy when we got back!! 

Last night we talked and talked about the piece of property we both liked but came to the conclusion it just wasn’t the right one—the access issues bothered both of us.  We received a call from the woman who owned the other property we both REALLY liked—her price was laughable!!  They bought that 40 acres at the absolute height of Arizona land prices paying top dollar and expect to get that amount plus some now.  Michael and I can’t imagine land prices ever getting back to that level—maybe we are wrong but at this point in time, we aren’t willing to spend that kind money for bare ground!!

No photos today—I promise to do better tomorrow!!!
