About us

Welcome to our Website. My name is Tom, my wife is Cathy, and we live in the British Columbia lower mainland, about an hours drive from Vancouver.  We are both retired, and this will be our 4th year travelling to Yuma, Arizona for the winter.

Our Rig, is a Citation Supreme, 5th Wheel trailer, pulled by a GMC Duramax diesel pick-up.


This will be our home-away-from home for 3 months over next winter. We will be Blogging during our trip south, during our stay in Yuma, and again during our trip back to Canada. I hope you will find the Blog entertaining and worth the read, and I hope you find something useful in the information Cathy & I will provide here. Please have a look around and leave a comment as you leave.

  1. Hi Tom and Cathy – Wishing you a safe journey to Yuma and will look forward to hearing your progress along the highways. Merry Christmas, Myrna and Fred

  2. Hello: I stumbled upon your blog when searching driving routes from BC to Yuma. We are about to embark on our first trip down this year and am wondering if you could email me as I have some questions! Thanks

    1. Hi Charlene, thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment. We have sent you an email and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

  3. Hi Tom & Cathy,
    It was nice to stumble across your website! We live in the Fraser valley as well. My wife and I will be attempting our first rv trip south this fall. Being our first trip south we are planning to spend a week or so in Palm desert, then the same in Yuma, Mesa and Tuson, then head back home. Hopefully find a place we like best for the future.
    If you have time would you suggest a route from say Aldergrove to Palm Desert?
    We are planning on leaving home Sept 11, coming home end of Oct. We are travelling in a Jayco Seneca 35′ class C motor home . Maybe we’ll meet up somewhere sometime.

  4. Hey Folks,

    Came across your log today, and since you are from the west coast as well (We are in Parksville) AND because we are planning on getting into this lifestyle I thought you could give us with some great practical tips about travelling to Yuma, Vegas, Phoenix and possibly San Diego, if you would be so kind! We are thinking of taking an exploratory trip down there next month (without the RV we have yet to buy). Places to see/stay /stops/cheap or amazing eats – we realize you are in an RV, which will come next time f or us — just anything you think would be helpful would be appreciated. Our email is wicksdj@shaw.ca C- 250-667-7446 Thanks!

    1. Hi there, so nice to get you comment. I have sent you a private email with some of the info you requested.
      Good Luck with your upcoming trip and RV purchase.

  5. Just came across your blog while looking for deals at 7 Feathers, I also got the good rate on the way down. Did you get it on the way north?
