Christmas Day Golf

Pam and I golfed 18 holes of golf at Palm Creek on Christmas; all golf was free on Christmas! We had a fun day enjoying the course and playing a nice round of golf; Palm Creek is a nice Par 3 course and an easy walk with our new 4-Wheel carts.

The other day, we played golf in a couple’s scramble and our foursome took second place with a score of 2 under (52). We then we played pickleball in the evening; we were the last ones playing and had to turn all the lights off.

Last night we enjoyed the hot tub. Life is great!

Palm Creek – Casa Grande, AZ

On Friday, December 22nd, we arrived back at Palm Creek Resort in Casa Grande, Arizonia. We are here for 3 months leaving at the end of March.

We are ready for the active 55+ lifestyle again. Starting Pickleball on Sunday and Golf after Christmas. Pam is signed up for Sewing classes to use her new Brother sewing machine. She is also looking forward to starting back up in the woodshop. Kelly starts back up with his golf group on Wednesday and plans to golf in the 18-hole league on Monday’s.

Lots of improvements over the summer. They now serve beer and wine at the cafe and at the sports facilities. The grass is green and lush. very happy to be back.

This year, we moved across the street to Site 109. We think it will be nicer to have the warm evening sun setting behind the trailer.

It appears there are vacation rentals available January – March in case anyone want to come visit.

New Mexico

After Austin, we left for a week in New Mexico in “Dark Sky” country. We planned to stay 3 nights at Rusty’s RV Ranch, but enjoyed the peace and quiet so much, we stayed a full week.

Rusty’s is in the high desert at 4,000 feet. On clear nights, the skies are black, and the stars are amazing. We were nestled in a valley between mountain ranges. Rusty’s has a bunch of animals they take care of including a pair of black swans, porcupines, goats and lots of birds.

This place is in the middle of nowhere (which was great). We enjoyed Sky Islands Grill & Grocery. This was our go to place for dinner. We enjoyed their chili, pizza, soup and baked goods.

We hiked the South Fork Trail #243 which is a 4.1 mile out and back hike in the mountains. Beautiful hike with lots of birds for Pam to identify.

Pam visited the Chiricahua Desert Museum where they had lots of snakes and desert gardens.

960 Brave Drive – Update

We are committed to start construction on our new home in the spring. We have the design out for bids to various contractors and are finalizing the “Special Use” permit with the county. Our plan is to be back in Wisconsin April and spend the entire summer until the house is complete.

Here is a video of the lot where the seller of the land and the architect of our future home staked out the house and gives a nice tour.

Austin, Texas

After Florida, we traveled to Austin, Texas for 5 days and met up with Terry and Kirk. We stayed at the Austin Lone Star RV Resort. The resort was quite nice, but it is very hectic with traffic and tons of people.

We walked to the Fast Friends Brewery the first night. Had Dinner at Cooper’s Old-time BBQ in downtown Austin, which was great.

We walked the “Trail of Lights” and really enjoyed ourselves. Overall, a really nice time in Austin.
