- Located just outside Williams, AZ up in the cool country, perfect time of year.

- Experience Fred Engel’s famous Dutch Oven Cobbler for desert! Yummmmm
- Bring your bike! Great place to ride.
- Make reservations now! This Is over a Holiday
- We want to make sure we’re all in Loop-A & B if possible.


Check availability as it seems to be filling up already! If you cannot get into A or B loops then look for C, D, & E. You may play with the dates to see if the spot is available. Also, make SURE you check the site length! Also, note there is a list of sites and a map on the website for clarity.

Well we had an interesting trip this year. Although only 5 coaches, rain, hail, and cold temps the rally was fun. After leaving the beautiful weather in Phoenix (mid 80's) we ran into this just outside Flagstaff;



Unseasonably cold weather for the state for the last week of May, wouldn't you say? Due to the on and off again rain we had to have our dinners inside coaches! This was sure cozy but Joe and Pat pulled it off. Dave also prepared sushi, the night was great.




In between rains we took walks along the lake. The highs were just barely 60 and I found that wonderful;



We did our usual repairs.. battery issues, generators won't start, plumbing issues, generators overheating, etc.. but all in all not too bad. Fred's generator cooling fan went out but he was able to find a nice replacement in town and we installed it. Out with the old;



In with the new;



Don't get me wrong.. we were able to tough it up and actually have a dinner outside, we just had to do it in the rain.





We had one night that was actually mild enough that we could have a fire so we sure jumped on that opportunity!





One morning we all headed into town and after breakfast caught the Williams Parade;





And of course had a moment of silence in honor of our Vets on this Memorial Day Weekend;



I'm sure others have more pics to post, I just took a moment to capture some of the fun. Sure was hard leaving this morning when you wake up to views like this from your living room while sipping on some coffee;

Default Sorry we missed the gathering...

Hi guys,

Well it sounds like you all enjoyed yourselves - rain or fix-it fun. Hope you all and your buses are well. Don't worry about not seeing us around, we still visit via the WOG often and continue to gussy up our FC. Our coach is receiving lots of TLC (a year+ in the making) but a little less road time.

Cheers AZ Hot Birds!

- Jeanette & Dennis
