I had planned to visit Phoenix with my friend's family. However, just one day before the trip, my friend's kid got rashes because of being allergic to a cold medicine. My friend dropped off from the trip. I started to think whether I should still rent the RV or should I just rent a minivan. I finally decided to rent the RV.
On 26th Dec, we got up early in the morning and got ready. We were waiting for the cab for our pick up. We waited until 5.10 am (our flight was at 6.25 am) and didn't see any signs of the cab coming for pickup. I called Yellow Cab and was surprised to hear that the cab will be delayed by 25 minutes. I canceled the cab and got help from my friend to drop us off in the airport. I did a curb side checkin and cleared the security checkpoint. The flight takeoff was delayed by an hour due to some fuel gauge issue.
The flight landed in Phoenix at around 9.35 am. We took Super shuttle and reached the RV rental lot. Eric (RV rental guy) gave me a 1/2 hour training+tour of the vehicle. I picked the vehicle at around 12 pm and went to Safeway. We did some shopping, had lunch and left Phoenix at around 2 pm. I didn't feel a lot of difference between driving an RV and a U-Haul truck.
It took about 6.5 hours to reach Page. On the way to Page, I was stopped by a cop for driving at 56 mph in a 50 mph zone. I didn't realize that I was driving above the speed limits. He warned me and let me go. This is the first time I was intercepted by a police. I was lucky enough, not to get a ticket :)
We reached Page at about 8.30 pm. It took about 30 minutes to figure out where the camp ground was. Finally, we called the support number to get directions. The camp ground was in Wahweap Marinas, facing Lake Powell. It was very cold in the night. I hooked up the connections to the outlets (water/sewage & electricity). We were very happy to get access to unlimited resources :) My wife prepared a delicious dinner. We had our dinner and went to sleep.
