It’s the last video in this series, we finally make it back to Long Beach, California after 6 days on the road. We visited wineries courtesy of Harvest Host, traveled through 7 states, Hooker, Route 66, fireworks, and more. And this is just the beginning.
We left Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the Enchanted Trails RV Resort, to head to Cottonwood, Arizona, where we will stay at the Verde Valley RV Resort. This will be my first experience with a Thousand Trails park, I became a member even before buying my rig, so I’m excited to stay at this resort, especially because it’s free. Although the cell signal was spotty at best from my site, I was able to tap into the WiFi from the clubhouse. And, the campground was also within close proximity to something equally as important as the Internet… You only get one guess as to what that could be.
Yup, you guessed right… Wine. Alcantara Vineyards was just a short walk from the campsite, with the shortcut you saw in the video. We were able to make it about a half-hour before they closed, and had a wonderful time talking with management, and trying their wine flights. When you are in Cottonwood, AZ, be sure to stop by this great, out-of-the-way winery. The hospitality of the staff, great views, and quiet ambiance, tied with just the right amount of classic rock, is the perfect escape on your next vacation.
We leave Cottonwood early the next morning for our 7+ hour ride back to Long Beach. Yes, we could have slept in a bit, but, we wanted to stop at Whataburger for lunch, or breakfast, or whatever 10 am is. I’m not the biggest burger fan, and typically when going out, a burger is the last thing I’ll order. But, I do have a huge appreciation for Whataburger, In-N-Out, Five Guys, and Fatburger. People try and compare them, but I think they are all completely different, and I enjoy them all. But, out of all of them, I would say you have to go to Fatburger, I think theirs, and Five Guys, are better. I haven’t been to Shake Shack yet, maybe I’ll fix that in an upcoming trip.
We pass through the California agricultural inspection station with no issues, I think it’s because the guard took a look at us and realized we are not the vegetable eating type. And make our way through California and finally my home for a few more weeks in Long Beach.
I parked at the Golden Shore RV Park in Downtown Long Beach, just a quick walk from my house. This RV park is small, less than 90 spots, but close to everything, with views of the Port of Long Beach and the new Gerald Desmond Bridge, and the Iconic Queen Mary. It is here where I will transition my stuff from my home to the RV, and take off for full-time living.
