Almost 200 miles for lunch

Casa Grande, Arizona
Sundance RV Resort

If anyone knows Bill they all know how much he hates to drive.  He wasn't even excited about getting his driver's license as a teenager.  Can you imagine we went almost 200 miles round trip for lunch?  You know it had to be a special reason, and it was.  
Bill and Jan Mains and Sharon and Don Del Rosario

Now does that explain it?  

It's difficult to find a day when we are both free but we decided on today.  Sharon had a wonderful Mexican restaurant picked out with great reviews and also great margaritas.  

The best laid plans can always change.  RVer's know this well.  

Around 7:20 this morning Sharon called.  She said she forgot about the Escapees luncheon in Benson today and wanted to know if we wanted to go.  No problem, that gave us an hour and 20 minutes to get our act together and head south.  

We headed down I 10 and were pleased that the traffic wasn't bad at all.  We've made many trips in the past to take my Dad to the VA but we never  made such good time as today.  

Bill parked our car at Safeway and we hopped in Don and Sharon's new chariot.  I've never seen so many bells and whistles on a vehicle before.  I noticed that the manual was close by so they could learn how to operate them.
I don't know why I didn't get a photo of the whole truck but I'm sure there are a lot on Sharon's blog.

We made a stop at their lot in Cochise Terrace.  Bill really enjoyed riding in such a comfortable truck with someone else doing the driving.  

We arrived on time for the Escapees luncheon but everyone had already ordered and food was being served.  
 Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.
The luncheon was held at San Pedro Golf Course and the food was excellent.  The prices were all under $10 and the only problem was there was a great selection.  I always have a hard time picking what I want.  I picked the Reuben and there must have been 8 different sides I could have had with it.  The service was great except they were out of olives.  

David and Lynn Cross were there and it was nice seeing them again.  

It was so good spending time with Don and Sharon.  Don even looks stronger and better since we saw him when they came up here for a visit.  

There was lots of excitement talking about the Escapade and Quartzite.  

It was a long full day, but we had a great time.  It was almost dark when we returned to Casa Grande.  Glad we didn't stay much longer as neither of us likes night time driving.
