I left Ben Avery's this morning at about 6 o'clock and got to Tucson about three hours later, and that included stopping for breakfast at the Cracker Barrel.
I'm dry camped in one of the parking lots at the Casino Del Sol on Valencia Boulevard in Tucson. The parking lot is huge and I saw a couple of other RVers here so I decided this was the place to be. I've learned from experience that when you're dry camping in a casino parking lot the first thing you're supposed to do is go into the casino and spend all of your money, no wait that's the second thing you're supposed to do. The first thing you're supposed to do is check in at the security desk and let them know you're here, and find out if they allow overnight parking. If they do they will usually want some information like tag numbers, name, and how long you would like to stay. Then they will tell you what the rules are and where you can Park. Some places will even give you a sticker to put in your window.The Casino Del Sol even said it was okay for me unhook the trailer.
I feel a lot better when I'm checked in and know what the rules are, that way I don't have to worry about being kicked out of the parking lot at two in the morning. I don't know how long they will let someone stay in the parking lot, I asked for four nights and they said that would be fine. I don't think I will be here for four days, but there are a lot to see in Tucson and I think the more I run around here the more things I'll find to do.
I know for sure that I want to visit the Pima air Museum, the Saguaro national Park, and the Mission San Xavier Del Bac which is a 300-year-old Spanish church. and if I have time I would like to get down south to Tubac, which was a 1750s Spanish presidio.
That sounds like a lot to do, but if I need more time to stay in Tucson there are two more casinos in town which welcome Rvers.
