The time I spent in Congress

The time I spent in Congress

By Chuck Woodbury
Many RVers in the West head to Arizona for the winter. One lesser-known destination is the tiny town of Congress. It’s not much to look at: a dusty spot in the middle of nowhere. But for hundreds of migrating RVers it’s home sweet home. 

I once spent a couple of hours in Congress. When I spotted the town on a map I knew I must make the pilgrimage. I reasoned that one day in the distant future when someone asked me what I had accomplished in my life, I could look them squarely in the eyes and say with complete honesty that I had “spent some time in Congress.”

I’m not sure today that I’d brag about that. But, yeah, I would.

    Hi Chuck, My address is Congress, AZ. But I agree there’s nothing there. I live about four miles South at an SKP’s RV park called North Ranch. We have +/- 110 RV sites and 436 buildable lots. Next time you’re in the area, stop by.
