Daily journal – February 10th, 2018

We woke up a bit late because we stayed up late last night, hanging out with another RV couple. As usual, we woke up and had our strong coffee and big breakfast. We always say that breakfast is our most favorite part of the day!

After breakfast, we spent a bit of time getting up to date on our Instagram and Facebook accounts while we watch a bit of TV. We typically do this every morning before we do anything else, so it has become kind of a morning ritual.

We have been doing a lot of outdoors activities here in the area since we got here almost two weeks ago… we have done a couple of hikes, went kayaking to Watson Lake, and a several mountain bike rides! Today we wanted to go and do a bigger MTB trail in Sedona so we planned on leaving the RV a bit earlier than usual… not too early because mornings here are cold!

Rubi started getting ready with food for the ride… apples, a banana, and a juice. While she did that, I got all the bike gear on the truck. We left around 11:00AM to go ride the West Sedona Tour loop, which is a 13.2-mile intermediate mountain bike loop. We felt pretty strong on our last MTB ride a few day ago so figured it was time to start doing longer rides 🙂

The ride was awesome! We felt a bit stronger after only five continuous rides here in Sedona over the last week and a half. We really enjoyed it, but as usual, towards the end, we were beaten and ready to head back to our little home on wheels to have a big lunch! When we made it back to the truck, we just relaxed for a few minutes while drinking a refreshing green juice that Rubi made.

It takes us about 30 minutes to get from the trail parking lot to the RV, mostly due to there being a lot of back road with low-speed limits. By the time we got back, we just wanted to relax and enjoy a good lunch!

We spent the rest of the evening going over our pictures and again getting up to date on our social media pages… Social Media pages do take a bit of our time, but we enjoy doing it!

Rubi started reading the Bible in the evening while I go thru our photos and do a bit of computer stuff.

We had a bit of an issue with our water pump… it seems that it has been sending city water to our water tank and overfilling it. We think it was because two days ago, the RV park shut down their water and we had to use the water tank and the pump for our daily water usage… but forgot to turn it off when the water from the RV park came back on and it might have made the RV water pump go a bit crazy.

I turned off the city water outside and left the water pump working to use up the water in the tank instead of having to empty it on the ground. We’ll see if it gets back to regular working condition once the water tank its empty.

And as usual, after all the daily activities and all the rest, by the time we realized it, it was already dark and almost time to go to bed haha…. yup, we go to bed early 🙂 … And that is where we are going now, to bed… Good night!…. Oh wait, I need to go out and take the trash to the dumpster because the last two night that we forgot our trash can outside, we had a night visitor come by and go thru it… a skunk! haha… Okay, now that trash it disposed and all is good… good night!

We are Rubi and Eduardo. We are outdoor lovers. We enjoy mountain biking, hiking, paddle boarding, kayaking... and pretty much anything that has to do with being outdoors. For a while we had wanted to travel around our awesome country, exploring everything along our path. We took the leap and decided to do just that back in January 2016 and have loved every minute of it! We enjoy taking pictures as a hobby to share them with our friends and family.
