Palm Creen: Casa Grande, AZ

We arrived back in Palm Creek on January 31st. We are back in site 398 and are enjoying the sun and activities.

Kelly started golf with his Wednesday group. We played at Sewailo Golf Club in Tucson. Nice course that is part of a casino. Nice weather and Kelly shot a nice little 84 (from the senior tees).

Both Pam and Kelly took a Pickleball Lesson (2 hours) and really enjoyed it. So, we both joined the Palm Creek Pickleball Club and signed up for “Round Robin” events. Pam’s is next week. Kelly played on Saturday which consisted of 6 games played in 2 hours. Great exercise.

Pam took a Wine & Painting course on Saturday. It was 2 hours, and she used acrylic paint to create a masterpiece. A new talent she is discovering which she inherited from her mother – Jan.

Pam and Kelly also signed up for the workshop club. Pam starts her beginner’s woodworking class next Monday.

There are so many clubs and activities at Palm Creek; it you are bored here, it is your fault.

Sabino Canyon Trail

The group traveled to Sabino Canyon to walk the trails. Another great set of trails in Tucson. We started at the visitor center at the Bear Canyon Trailhead.

We walked up the Phoneline trail, but it we could not stay on it due the creek running strong from recent rains. We changed course and hiked to the Sabino Damn which created Sabino Lake.

Camino de Santiago (virtually)

To get in shape and prepare for walking the Camino later this year, Pam and I have decided to walk the Camino de Santiago (virtually) along with some friends and family. This will be a 400-mile virtual hike using your phone / fit bit / apple watch to record activity. So far, we have 7 people. Pam, Kelly, Nancy, Marge, Kayla, Terry & Kirk.

If anyone is interested, let me know. My code gets 10% off (around $35 net) and you get a medal at the end! Use the link above or my code: KM11700.

Join us if you would like. I have also created a “Community” to watch / track just the people in our group: “A Meer Walk” with invitation code: AMEERWDBA0

We plan to start February 1st. Pam and I will set a goal to complete in 12 weeks (12,000 steps per day). But everyone sets their own goals.

Tucson Update

We have been at Desert Trails RV Park for a couple of weeks. We leave next week on the 31st and head back to Palm Creek for February and March.

The weather turned cool (55-degree highs / 30-degree lows). But sunny. Not hiking as much as we should. A couple of 4 and 5 mile hikes in the Tuscon Mountain Park. The RV Park is right next to the park.

We traveled back to Benson, AZ to visit the SKP Coop (we are on the waiting list) and have lunch at Mi Casa with Terry and Kirk. We reaffirmed how much we like the SKP park and Mi Casa Restaurant. For fun, we stopped at the local San Pedro Golf Course for a drink. Nice place with great views.

We toured a couple of Robson 55+ retirement communities, but decided we are not ready yet to buy in Arizona. Going to focus on our future property on Squaw Lake in Wisconsin.
