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.

Hey, I’m reading this right now in Congress! Don’t sell it short. The SKP park is great and there’s a couple of decent restaurants in Congress. And I spent the afternoon in nearby Wickenberg at an Art and Authors Festival.


Chuck Woodbury, thanks so much for the post.Really thank you! Keep writing.

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.
