Mar 9, 2016 - Tombstone

We had a very laid back two weeks in Casa Grande. If we were in the market for a winter season park model this place would get serious consideration. Granted it was warmer than usual, but 90 degree temps every day in February was nice. It would have been nice to have one more week as the cactus is just starting to bloom. But it's time to move on. And with that, two and a half hours and 140 miles and here we are in Huachuca City. We're southeast of Tucson and about 10 miles outside of Tombstone. We'll be going to Tombstone tomorrow to...

Mar 31, 2014 - Huachuca City AZ - Tombstone Territories RV Park

Hello, Everyone! It’s been a long time since I updated our travel blog, but the summer is coming, so I need to get at it again. We’ve had a very busy winter here in Arizona and have made several new friends. We’ve had fun playing Bocce Ball and Mexican Train (a domino game) and going to our neighborhood get-togethers among other things. One of the best things about Arizona is seeing Melissa (niece), Nik (Melissa’s husband) Savannah (great niece), Dallas (great nephew) and Michaela (niece). Celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas with them –...

Retired at Last!

Mar 31, 2014 - Fort Huachuca

Today Pete decided that we will wash of the dust of the White Sands from the coach. Washing with hose is not allowed but bucket method works well enough to take of dust. While he was busy with that I did laundry and cleaned interior. Dust gets into everything here, fine powder that cakes up into mud when wet. Short visit to the town and site seeing trip to the Reservoir Hill, elevation `5200 in the afternoon. Post gets its water from that hill since 1877. We took some panoramic pictures from the hill.

This morning we drove to Sierra Vista a town annexed to the Fort Huachuca. We pick up our forwarded mail and tour the town a little. It appears small but it has all necessary stores even a mall.

Third building houses evolution of the army intelligence art from the times when Apache scouts were...

Mar 28, 2014 - Apache Flats, Fort Huachuca Arizona

Thankfully this morning was fairly calm and we had a easy drive through the passage between the mountains. As we crossed to AZ we noticed that scenery changed too we seen some nice stone boulders formations specially at the scenic rest area where Pete took some pictures. We arrived to Fort Huachuca having low expectations and we were honestly surprised with the base. Its elevation is ~4800 feet and is surrounded with mountains well above 8000 feet. Although it is National Historic Landmark, established in 1877 when it was a temporary camp,...

Apr 22, 2013 - Touring the Huachuca City, Sierra Vista and Tombstone Area

The weather was great with temperatures in the high 70 and 80s. There were 13 rigs attending the rally. We visited Fort Huachaca (pronounced wa-cha-ka) and went through the museum on this army base. We had a big drone fly over us while there. The base was established back in the mid 1800s to fight Apache's and became the home of the Buffalo Soldiers starting in the Civil War. These were black soldiers who fought from the civil war all through the Indian wars and wars with Mexico and up to the early 40's when they were integrated into the...

Jan 21, 2013 - Huachuca City, AZ

After a pleasant stay at DeAnza RV Park in Amado, AZ we took a short 96 mile ride and moved into the Tombstone Territories RV Resort in Huachuca City just outside the historic western town of Tombstone, AZ. We just happened to arrive, as they say down here, at 'High Noon'!. The RV Resort is about 10 miles West of town. The views, as you can see in some of the photos, are awesome. We are in a pull-thru site with nothing behind us but breathtaking views of the awe-inspiring mountain vistas and desert landscape. Actually there are mountain...

Mar 16, 2012 - Huachuca City, AZ

Color is starting to show as we head back across New Mexico and into Arizona. What a difference a few weeks makes down here. We stayed in Mountain View RV Park in Huachuca City, AZ. Small, but nice park! From this location we traveled to Bisbee, AZ, the home of the big Lavender Mine which is an open pit copper mine. Very old town and it sits in Cochise County which is where the author J.A. Jance wrote her JoAnna Brady series. This author lives there part of the year and unfortunately we didn't run into her. We roamed the town and went out...

Mar 2, 2012 - A New Winter Home!?

On Thursday we were up early taking care of launch day chores. We picked up our friend John and went into Benson where we had breakfast at the Horseshoe Café – WOW, this place is good. We all had a breakfast that would hold us for the day! We returned to Saguaro, dragged the horse out of the stall and hitched it up. As we left, we stopped at the office to settle up AND we plunked our deposit down to be added to the “Hot List”. That is, we placed our name on the waiting list for an annual site here in the Park. Now, we haven’t decided that...
