I got on the road about 9:30 this morning and had an uneventful drive of about 50 miles into Tucson. I had planned on boondocking at one of the Indian casinos in Tucson either the Desert Diamond or the Casino Del Sol. But as luck would have it it's some kind of an Indian holiday and the Casino Del Sol was closed so I didn't bother going to the Desert Diamond figuring they would be closed also.
I then decided I would try the Pima County Fairgrounds just east of Tucson, and if that didn't work I would just keep on going until I got to Benson and stay at the Escapees Park there. The Pima County Fairgrounds had plenty of room and the lady and her husband behind the counter were so nice and helpful I signed up for a week of full hookups for 150 bucks. I got to the fairgrounds at just about the right time because the campground closes April 8. So even though my timing for staying at an Indian Casino was very poor, staying at the fairgrounds worked out really well.
It's been a long time since I've had full hookups. At Picacho Peak State Park I only had an electric hookup since that's all they have available. So this is going to be great having full hookups for a whole week. For the ole boondork that amounts to luxury living.
