Wednesday, November 14 - Tortilla Flats, Shopping and Movie (Gold Canyon, AZ)


Monday we were going on an adventure. We had a letter to mail and guess who we met in the parking lot? Trent & Teresa were parking their car there so we gave them a ride to Ed and Marilyn’s where we all met.

Since they were all ready in the car we decided for T&T to ride with us, so we could get to know them better and Bob and Janet rode with E&M.

We drove along the windy rode to Tortilla Flats.

Tortilla Flat is an authentic remnant of an old west town, nestled in the midst of the Tonto National Forest, Superstition Mountain Range. As well as being home for six adventurous people, Tortilla Flat has a charm that has surpassed time.


Tortilla Flat started out as a stage stop in 1904. Mosey down the boardwalk and visit the Superstition Saloon. Real saddles serve as bar stools where you can enjoy a cold brew or sarsaparilla. The unique wallpaper is really dollar bills from visitors world wide.


The Restaurant serves the big burgers, with chili on top served open face with Fries. Everyone but us ordered that and shared. Jesse ordered his own burger and I got a salad.



Teresa said we needed to go see the unique ladies bathroom.


We had some time to relax after returning home and agreed to meet at Bob & Janet’s for happy hour. Lots of laughs and good snacks were the ticket for this evening.


Tuesday Buddy had an appointment for grooming. I took him by myself and when shopping. I went to Dollar Tree and Walmart and made it back just in time to pick him up.

Jesse went to look at a truck. He is looking for a dually that we can trade to without paying too much money. He was very upset when he got to the dealership he had been communicating with, and found they had already wholesaled the truck.

In the late afternoon we rode our bikes over to E&M and B&J to say good bye and have a nice trip. They are taking a rode trip to the grand canyon for a couple of days. The six of us sat outside for a short while.

We came home and had dinner and just relaxed while watching TV. Janet had displayed these very neat looking lights when we were there earlier, so we rode back over to their place to see what it looks like at night. Really special and she gave us one. Thanks so much! She is selling them and hopes to get some interest within the park.



Wednesday we went to see Skyfall. We both enjoyed it. We also stopped at Petsmart to get the boys some food.

At home I grilled a pork tenderloin and roasted potatoes for dinner. It was yummy and we had a pleasant evening.
