Retired LoWs Do Yuma

Yuma, Arizona. In the winter, it's the best town in America with a year round population of some 50,000 and a winter population of 150,000. We retired LoWs make this a sure stop each winter. If you want to make next winter more fun, come join us!

You won't be alone! If you travel to the Foothills area and contact Sheila Harvey for happy hour you'll find yourself sitting among 10 to 25 other LoWs, each from a different station in life. We have a zillion former school teachers, a lawyer or two, some former nurses, truck drivers, waitresses, bartenders and someone from just about every other profession.

A short tour of the town will show that Yuma is Lettuce! Seriously, they claim to produce over 90% of the worlds winter vegetable crop! If farming is not your bag, take a tour through the Arizona Territorial Prison used in the late l800s. Think of being held, eight to a small cell, with the emperature in the 110's. It'll make you want to return to the farm!

Do you like boat trips? You can take a tour boat either up or down the Colorado River. Up stream you'll find Indian writings and old mining sites. Down stream it's a tour of RV parks on the river and locks and dams which divide the water for Arizona agriculture, Mexico and the city of Yuma.

Still want to explore? A trip to Quartzsite in January and February will astonish you. This summertime village of less than 1,000 population expands to a city of hundreds of thousands during the rock-hound season.

While in Yuma, I recommend that you see Sheila about renting a beautiful space in the Foothills area. Some wonderful prior owner of several hundred acres put them in a trust and dictated that each lot be surrounded by a Spanish brick fence, be paved with a certain kind of white rock, and have hookups for at least three RVs on each lot. We all try to find spaces near each other and we really enjoy a very special social life.

Without making more of it than is proper, I think the Mexican town of Algodones (just south of Yuma) is the best of the border towns, especially if you need inexpensive eye care, dental treatment or medicine.

Come join us! The water is fine! We LoW's will be looking for you at the next Happy Hour!

Jack Matlock is a senior and single full time RVer who is enthusiastically endorsing the RVing lifestyle. He started his RVing with a small pick-up and a Coleman tent camper. He presently has a 33 foot 5th wheel with three slide outs.

As a single Jack quickly learned that we live in a mated society. Even the RVing society was based on couples. He wanted to escape into a world where he could socialize with other singles. He looked for a group of single campers who would share his coffee hours and fishing trips. He found Loners on Wheels, a singles only RVing club dedicated to enjoying the single lifestyle and retaining the independence and travel each RVer enjoys. For the past seven years he has enjoyed this group. He plans to enjoy it for the rest of his life! http://www.lonersonwheels.com/
