In the end that probably was for the best as we would have been there zip lining until near 4 pm, and we needed to move the coach to Sedona Pines after we got done, and that would have been a little tight beating sundown, so we decided to hang out until Noon, then move the coach into Cottonwood and park at the Walmart while I got a haircut in their salon, and TLE did some shopping, then move on over to Sedona by 2.....the total driving distance from our boondock spot to Sedona Pines is only 22 miles, so not exactly a grueling day distance wise, but we knew we would have to "drop" the trailer in the parking lot to get into our spot in the RV section, and that might take a little time as it is a small parking lot.
Since we had time to kill I got on my mountain bike for another descent down to the valley.....this time my disc brakes were functioning properly, so I went a little faster knowing I had the braking power to slow down if need be. I was going to do two descents and two climbs, but by the time I made it back to the top of the 1 mile climb the wind was getting pretty hairy, so I decided one run without incident was good enough.
We spent the rest of the morning stowing away our gear, but not the car.....no point in loading and unloading it for a 22 mile jaunt. Putting the solar panels back down from their tilted position was an adventure in the high winds, but was accomplished without any misadventures.
We arrived at the Cottonwood Walmart about 12:20, and headed in for my haircut, and TLE's shopping. I am actually pretty pleased with my $15.50 haircut. TLE finished her shopping just a few minutes before my stylist was done with my cut. We arrived at Sedona Pines just around 2 pm, and dropped the trailer in the parking lot.....fortunately there was just one spot left that would work for us, and that is the way it always seems to go for us.
And for TLE the "Wunderhund" beef dog.......again, amazing!
We spent the evening watching "The Amazing Race", "Resurrection" and "The Mentalist", and then hit the sack around 11:30......another day lived well.
By the by......I was asked yesterday via personal message how my weight loss was going, and I am proud to report that I have settled in around 190, and seem to be able to stay there without much effort. I would like to lose 5 more pounds, but for now I am pleased to be maintaining my 21 pound weight loss eating smaller portions, not drinking as much beer, and sprinkling in a little "vigorous" exercise here and there.
Thanks for stopping by!
