We stayed in Quartzsite untill March 31st to go to the Blythe Fair and Races for the last time this spring. April 1st we headed to Casa Grande and the Dessert Shadows RV Resort till we go to the track on the 13th. Joeanne and I have never been to a Nascar Race before so we are very excited about it. -:)

We came here after 2-days at Casa Grande

Sunday everybody had to leave the track so we got ready to leave Saturday morning to make it easyer on us. We drove to Desert Shadows RV Resort for 2-days 22nd & 23rd so we could empty the tanks, make RO water, clean the rigs and shop, also long showers. We left for St. David on the 24th for 2-weeks at theWestern Horizon RV Resort.

Saturday morning we moved into the stageing
