Fantastic day today 75°, humidity in the teens just what you would expect in southern Arizona in the wintertime. Other than more rain than southern Arizona normally gets this time of year its turned into a great winter.
Now I guess some folks would consider early March as the beginning of Spring but coming from the Colorado Rockies as I did March was nowhere near spring in fact March is one of the snowiest months of the year so I'm very happy to be in southern Arizona no matter what it's called.
There was a slide in truck camper, and a van that spent the night here at Box Wash, but they were gone by the time I got up this morning, so there's still just three of us here in the main boondocking area.
There's more boondocking down the dirt road that runs next to Box Wash and there's four or five other RVs down there at the moment, and there's still some boondocking spots open where their at.
There are nice places to boondock down that road, but I've never liked that dirt road very much, parts of it have sharp edged rocks embedded in the road that look like they could damage a tire pretty easy, so I just stay up here in the main area where it's not as pretty but I don't have to worry about my tires being damaged going back and forth on that dirt road. On the other hand if the area I'm in now wasn't available I would be boondocking down there in a heartbeat.
I've just seen on the Internet that we now have some Coronavirus in Arizona. This is not good news, but was expected. The cases here involve the Arizona State University. Apparently some of the folks there were traveling to areas where there was Coronavirus already and brought it back to the rest of the University.
Having a university involved makes me wonder what's going to happen with spring break coming up this month. Sure sounds like a good way to spread it far and wide very quickly. Maybe I'll go to the store tomorrow and buy a few more cans of beans.
Walking down the Box Wash road, there are six or eight boondocking spots alongside the road, depending on how big your RV is.
This is a typical pullover alongside the road and there's plenty of room here for a large trailer or class A.
This is the last boondocking spot before you come to the turnaround. The road continues for maybe 1/4 of a mile after the turnaround but it's for the smallest of RVs only.
