Jan 2, 2008 - Tucson with Family and Friends

Saturday the 29th Brian took Spencer for a long walk and then we went shopping. Brian's niece, Connie, requested a Salmon dinner from Uncle Brian so we had to hit Wild Oats and Costco before arriving on their doorstep. On the way to their home I got pulled over by a cop. Now, for those of you who don't know about California DMV, I'll explain it. We have to have our car Smogged (or smog checked) every other year when you register the car. My car was due to have the registration renewed in August. I knew this, and wanted to do it before I...

Dec 20, 2007 - Tucson, AZ

Almost to Yuma20 December - And another great day on the highway as I drove into the Arizona sunset(4). I am parked at the RV friendly Desert Diamond Casino in South Tucson. I stayed at this casino before on my spring trip to Texas. There's lots of new construction going on but still lots of room for RV parking in a flat, quiet, and well lighted lot. Today's Milestones: Crossed into Arizona. NOTE: The Flappr Map is up and running and you can add/update your info by clicking on the map link. And, if you haven't already added your picture,...

Perimeter Run

Nov 18, 2007 - Tucson

Well, here we are at Beaudry RV Resort. We have a 3 night stay for free, because we bought the coach here. It is the only good thing we have ever gotten from them. The resort is really nice. Level gravel pads, paved roads, full 50 amp hook-ups, concrete patios, with a tables and chairs, some even have hot tubs. Much nicer than the transition lot we spent 3 weeks in last year. The restaurant and the bar are closed for remodeling, one of the two pools is being re-plastered, ah gee! Both of the laundry facilities are open and very nice, 12...

Jun 14, 2007 - Tucson, AZ

Well, since we had gotten to Carlsbad a day early, we decided to leave a day early to go on to Tucson. But, there's been a change of plans! Kevin and I have both decided we are tired of mountains, desert, cacti, caverns, etc. And, it is way too hot to spend a lot of time outdoors! Plus, Kevin is ready to stay a while somewhere that he does not have to drive so much! (So far, between the RV and the Jeep, he has driven over 2,200 miles) So, we are in search of CIVILIZATION! What better place to go than - VEGAS, BABY! So, after just tonight's...

Apr 4, 2007 - Hello from Green Valley

A week ago, we moved from Apache Junction to Amado Arizona. It is a small town South of Tucson and Green Valley. We are in an RV Park that used to be a greyhound race track years ago, but has been turned into a very nice park. Not many people here, but lots stopping for a day or two on their way to and from Mexico. We have explored some of the area, We took a short hike in Madera Canyon in the Santa Rita mountains and have driven down to the border and back. We really like this area, it is very beautiful and we really like the Rio Rico...

Feb 17, 2007 - Arivaca

We took a day trip to Arivaca on Saturday. it is a small rural community about 25 miles to the SE of Amado. It is the oldest continuously operating community in Arizona and is not too far from the Mexican border. Several large cattle ranches in the area and an obvious counter culture presence. We stopped at a few shops and then drove about 3 miles south to the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge trailhead. This area is loaded with migratory birds certain times of the year (spring and fall) but not much now. Still, we parked at a trailhead...
