A Travel Day

Last night we decided to travel on to the Tombstone, AZ area today and we got a nice early start, leaving Alamogordo about 8:30 and arriving at Tombstone Territories RV Park around 2:30pm. We had a nice tail wind upping our fuel mileage to above 10 miles per gallon!

Our plan is to spend the night here, take on water, do laundry and clean the RV and the dog then go out to a boondocking spot we heard about by reading the great blog of fellow travelers, Al & Kelly who are from Canada. I must be getting crankier in my older age--I get way too irritated at people in campgrounds who seem to be oblivious to the fact their dogs are constantly barking or they think it is OK to sit outside their RV at 1am and talk so loud they could be heard a mile away. So, we are off to boondock.

When we arrived this afternoon, we called Jim & Linda, friends we met a few years ago while participating in the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting. They full time RV and have spent so much time in the Tombstone area, they have bought a house. We met them at their rig and they drove us by the house they are buying and then we were on to dinner at the Six Gun Cafe. It was so good to see them. They are going to try and sell their toy hauler and I took some photos tonight so we can get the RV listed on Craigs List.

The view of Dog Canyon on our killer hike Saturday.
The creek bed where the Nature Trail used to be--a spring flash flood destroyed the trail last year. Notice, Jill, the cottonwoods are starting to leaf out!!

Another wonderful day and so good to see Jim & Linda.

  1. We drove right through Tombstone Territories RV Park yesterday about noon on our way from Fairbank to Whetstone. If someone is already on the cement pad west of Tombstone, not to worry, you can park anywhere between the gate & the pad anyway. We did for a couple days before moving down to the cement.
