Visiting : Superstition Skies Bar and Grill in Apache Junction AZ

When I was still a “dreamer”, Diana of “Life on the Open Road” was very much one of my heroes.  Today I got the opportunity to meet her at a very neat little authentic bar and grill called Superstition Skies, right in the shadows of the Superstition Mountains in Apache Junction…

One of the really cool things about it is that it’s right smack dab in the middle of this little rural residential neighborhood.  According to Diana, it’s not uncommon for people to visit the establishment on horseback. She also showed me the back room where Elvis Presley did a scene in one of his movies and where one of the fastest painters in the world did this really cool mural…

I didn’t get many good pictures in this lighting, but I got to visit with another wonderful group before the band started playing…

Diana travels with a fellow named Phil…

They met as single RVers, as did Diana’s sister, who was also in attendance with her husband!  So where do single full-time RVers find their partners?  Well, Diana and Barbara should just kick me because between them I believe it was mentioned a dozen times and I forgot the name of the group again (hopefully one of them will remind me with a little comment at the end of this post) — but apparently it’s a bunch a folks that plan a route months in advance and RVers can join the caravan whenever they please.  Again, pretty cool!

But how’s THIS for cool!  Sandie and Jim were again in attendance.  And what they told me just blew me away.  And be prepared if you are one of those that will tell me how “lucky I am to be single” so that I can pursue a lifestyle like this, because next time you do, I will refer you to this website.  Ok, get this:

There is a family that  travels full-time in an RVwith TEN children!

Well tomorrow’s my big wildlife scavenger hunt with Jimbo!  Scorpion, tarantula, gila monster.  Like my chances?

    You are definitely much better than I am about getting a post made. It was so fun to see you again and actually get to visit for a little while. Have a great time today and don’t get too close to those wild things.

    It was very nice to meet you too! The name of our single RVers group is Wandering Individuals Network (WIN). We have gatherings set up all the time. I wouldn’t really call it a Caravan, we just meet up at these gatherings. It’s a very active group – kayaking, hiking, biking, dancing. To learn more, the website is rvsingles(dot)org.

    Thanks Diana, look forward to seeing you down the road! That’s a nice resource to have whenever it works out that I can meet up with more like-minded people.

    Sandie, I have a pretty good system for blogging. When I get up in the morning, I make my coffee, fire up the laptop and, between each task like writing the story or downloading pictures — I stay relaxed by reading a few pages in my latest book. That way I’m never bogged down with the “task” of doing a post and it’s always very enjoyable for me!
