You don't have to wait till Christmas to open the pics, they can be clicked right now.
A tiny piece of the Arizona State School Lands that I'm boondocking on at the moment.
Completely unintentional, the pictures match up with part of my blog post.... A rare moment, a very rear moment indeed.
I decided to mosey on down the road at the last minute instead of re-uping for another week at Ben Avery. There was no reason in particular why I moved; I was perfectly happy there, I just felt like I needed a new view, so I moved a ways down the road, and I'm now boondocked on State School Lands, which requires a $15 a year fee to stay if you want to be legal.
I figure that maybe a new view would give me a new idea of what to do about Christmas; I still don't know where I want to go or what I want to do.
But speaking of Christmas, I was going to avoid boondocking at the Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson from just after Christmas to just after New Year's because the Escapees club was going to be there, and I figured they would fill the place up and make it too crowded for me to enjoy.
But digging deeper into what's going on with the Escapees during the holidays, I found out it's not ALL the Escapees; it's actually just an event that's limited to 30 RVs. And since the Pima County Fairgrounds can camp hundreds of RVs, the Escapees won't be a problem for me, so I can put Tucson back into the mix of places to go for Christmas.
I do enjoy being in Tucson at the Pima County Fairgrounds; I like their uncrowded boondocking area, Walmart, and other shopping is only two or three miles away; my favorite restaurant, Popeyes, is in the Walmart parking lot. Also, the huge airplane Museum five or six miles away from the Fairgrounds, a drag-strip, and a motocross track, right next to the Fairgrounds, and now I've learned, less than 100 miles away near Wilcox Arizona is a large Winter gathering of Sandhill Cranes and there's boondocking next to the lake they stay at! I can't wait.
Since it was a cloudy day there was a pretty sunrise this morning.
American Airlines leaving Sky Harbor Airport yesterday.
Lone hot air balloon getting a great view of a beautiful sunrise. I see that one of my boondocking neighbors at the Arizona State School Lands is in a tent.... Finally!!! Someone with less camping status than I have.
Over on the left at the base of the mountains there's a huge construction project going on.... Forget you ever saw it, I'll talk about it tomorrow.
One of the commercial balloons flew over my head yesterday at about 200 feet... It's a good thing nobody was wearing a skirt...
Normally I would've said, "good thing the women weren't wearing skirts," but now days you never know what you're going to see so it's hard to be specific about any subject that involves gender.
