ARIZONA ADVENTURES w/ Lori & Randy

ARIZONA ADVENTURE w/ Lori & RandyPRESCOTT And that would be “Preskitt” if you are a local! Prescott is just 1.5 hours north of Phoenix and has a western, cowboy feel to it.  It was the state Capital of the Arizona Territory twice. We love heading “ up the hill” to our sister town in Yavapai County, to cooler weather and fun times. There is always something to do in this small quaint town. With its natural beauty being set in the Bradshaw Mountains, there are HUNDREDS of hiking trails, camping, horseback riding, golf courses and quading opportunities. Lots of lakes too for fishing such as Lynx and Goldwater. With the infamous “Whiskey Row”, a red light district until the mid 50’s, there are plenty social opportunities available with the many historic bars, choices of restaurants, shops and events in the town square that houses the Historic Courthouse built in 1916. So head “up the hil ... read more

ARIZONA ADVENTURES w/ Randy & Lori...FLAGSTAFF

ARIZONA ADVENTURES w/ Randy & Lori...FLAGSTAFF

Downtown Flagstaff is a place we love to visit, especially during the hot summer months! Downtown is the best place to people watch, grab a drink, a bite to eat and listen to outdoor musicians. The variety of places to enjoy are vast. My favorite boutique is Shoes and Such; for obvious reasons! There is a way cool thrift/costume store called “Incahoots Vintage Clothing Store” on East Aspen. Always a great variety of vintage clothing, jewelry and costumes for any occasions. We personally LOVE the historic hotels in the area as well. The Weatherford opened up for business in 1900 where you can stay, dine or just have a drink on the 2nd floor patio that overlooks the downtown area. The Hotel Monte Vista is another favorite, built in 1927. The cocktail lounge is a must stop with its red colored walls and smoky dark feel. Randy’s favorite stop is the Flagstaff Brewing Company on Route 66. Every weekend there is a band playing outdoors where you can enj ... read more

ARIZONA ADVENTURES w/ Randy & Lori...Crown King

ARIZONA ADVENTURES w/ Randy & Lori...Crown King

ON THE ROAD AGAIN... The road up the mountain to Crown King can be driven with a car or truck but we feel the best way up is in a quad or razor………….FUN, FUN, FUN! In early March, 26 of us headed north from our home in Black Canyon City. Some were in quads, some in razors and thank God some in trucks, aka the Chuck Wagons (carrying the necessary food and beverages for the trip). Our first stop was Antelope Falls that is connected to a creek in Old Cordes close to Bumble Bee. There is a 75 foot waterfall and below it is a large natural swimming pool. Close to the falls are remnants of a small stone home and also a way cool outcropping full of Petroglyphs. This is a great place to stop for a break and light lunch. Next stop is the world famous Cleator Bar and Yacht Club. Cleator was established in 1864 as a placer gold mining site. The AZ Cleator family has been connected to this venue and community since 1925.The Bar and Yacht Club is a mus ... read more

Check engine light is on, now what?

When your check engine lights comes on, you may be torn between utter panic and just wanting to ignore it and hope it goes away. That’s perfectly understandable. That same check engine light could come on for anything from a serious engine or transmission problem all the way down to a loose gas cap. There’s a very common misconception that the trouble codes stored in your engine computer when your check engine light comes on will specifically identify a problem. It’s really more like pointing to the symptoms of a problem. Think of taking your temperature. Say it’s 101. Your heat sensor – the thermometer – tells you that your temperature is out of the normal range. But it doesn’t tell you why you have a fever. Is it the flu or a sinus infection? You need more information; more tests. For any given trouble code, there could be a number of causes. So your trained technician takes the trouble code as a starting point and begins a diagnostic process to deter ... read more
