RV Log Payson & Camp Verde

Want to fish? Want to Rodeo? Payson is the place to be! Set under the Mogollon Rim, we really enjoyed the town and all of its ammenities. No pies this day, but plenty of flashbacks to that infamous moment. Is Scott really strutting around a little? Quite possibly.

The air was cool. There was frost on the ground by the time we got the show started. Thank goodness for the portable propane heaters that were brought along. Tara couldn’t get enough of those! At one point she was surrounded by them.

I got to talk about the RV a little with Tara. I looked quite lovely bundled up with baseball cap and hood, don’t you think? No RV mishaps, but that drive on the Beeline Highway sure is an adrenaline rush for anyone driving one of those monsters!

Hope you caught the fabulous shots from the crane by photographer Mike Smith. That thing was so high, I was getting nervous watching him!


Main Street Cafe kept us well nourished at lunch and dinner, and if you like Mac ‘N Cheese with a kick, you can’t get any better there!

We headed for Camp Verde after the show. Along the way we ran into Scott Pasmore – well not literally, but we caught up with him on the side of the road.

Scott was nice enough to let me borrow his bike for a quick pose…….

The Engineering crew stayed a terrific little place called the Territorial Town Inn right on Main Street. What a treat! We had buckets of goodies, thoughtfully put together by Larry, waiting for us, and the rooms were perfect. Comfortable beds and western decor. If you get up that way, it’s a great place to stay.


Fort Verde was so interesting and for the history buff, a gold mine. And it was not very easy trying to get at Tara’s mic equipment under that hoop skirt to change batteries! I myself got to wear an old Calvary coat during GMAZ, which kept me quite warm and made me feel part of the team. It was another almost-as-cold.

Thanks to Dennis, Sheila and Ellen for their great contribution, and to Sunny, Dennis’ horse, for braving the frightening 3TV balloon to add that all iimportant Old West element.

Now we’re off to Sedona! Looking forward to some relaxation at the Amara. Greatest beds!

Happy Trails!
