We are very happy that we have been able to help some fellow RV'ers since coming to Hickiwan Trails. We are the only one's in the park with a satellite/internet system & that is a big asset for fellow travelers with computers to access our internet signal. They are able to check their email accounts, etc. One fellow was able to download an important insurance document to-day before heading on to Mexico to-morrow. We know how hard it is to find a wireless signal while traveling so we're more than willing to let fellow travelers have access to our signal. Our router antennae has a limited range of maybe an eighth of a mile so folks have to bring their laptops within range to use them. Saw a lady with a chair & her laptop this afternoon sitting in the shade of some trees just across from us. Grabbed my camera & took some pics.
Nice to be able to help out:))

Another great refreshing walk in the desert this morning made for a perfect start to another sunny Arizona day. Didn't get out with the bicycle like I had hoped but we were able to make a lot of progress with Ray's Hickiwan RV Park computer. Hughesnet finally solved a connection problem this morning & with that we were able to finally download AVG anti-virus software & run a full anti-virus scan. AVG scanned over 94,000 files for an hour & fifteen minutes & found nearly 3,000 infected files. We had never ever seen a computer that infected before but by the time we packed it in for the day we had the computer back under control with the elimination (I hope) of all infected files. We've come a long way in the last few days in getting this used computer cleaned up so if we get a clean start-up with it in the morning then we will have turned a major corner & can get on with setting up a functioning & registered website for Ray & the Hickiwan Trails RV Park.

Friday we plan to grab a day for ourselves & head down to the Organ Pipe National Park & head off on a much needed hike in the Ajo mountains............... Yahooie Louie, that would be nice:)))))))))


  1. Tula thats not the place to plant a garden.....

  2. How far is Organ Pipe National Monument from Hickiwan Trails. We're leaving here on the 7th of Feb and are thinking we may go to Organ Pipe. I have names of parks in Why and Lukeville that are supposed to be close. Just wondering......
