Comforably at home at Countryside!

It's been a heat wave - temps in the low 90's - and, like Verde Valley, the swimming pool's in this 80's, so it feels great! Unlike Verde Valley, the night-time temps are warm enough to allow open windows and a fan running (in Verde Valley, we needed our heater on at night!)
Returned (for a week only!) to the site of our first work-camping job - Countryside Resort in Apache Junction, where we stayed winter before last. This park is mostly park models and double wides, the majority of which are owned by Minnesotans, Michiganders, and Canadians, mostly from the Western Provinces. Many of them have been coming back here for 20 years or more to escape the cold winters at home. It was fun to be welcomed back and recognized by so many people - who don't quite "get" that we're not staying here all winter like they all do!
