I hit the road about 10 o'clock this morning, intending to crawl into Wickenburg about 2 this afternoon. But, because of my squirrel like brain, I'm easily distracted, so about an hour later when I passed the well-known tourist trap of "Rooster Cogburn's Ostrich Farm." I decided since I haven't been there for a long time, I should stop by and feed the Ostriches. Well, one thing led to another, and before you know it since it was a sunny warm day, I decided I should go down the road to the nearby Picacho State Park and spend the night, which is where I am happily ensconced at the moment.
It seemed like there was a lot of traffic on I-10 this morning, and as usual, a lot of the traffic was semi's. But I didn't encounter any traffic congestion even going through Tucson.
Since attending the rodeo at the Pima County Fairgrounds, which didn't work out incredibly well for me, was the last thing I had planned on doing this winter, it looks like I have nothing but free time on my hands now and can go wherever my mood takes me. It's too bad, so many places are closed and events canceled due to the Bat flu because it definitely limits things a person can do now.
So it looks like instead of going to different places and attending various events like I had hoped to do this winter, I'm going to be doing a lot of just hanging around. There's nothing wrong with that; in fact, I'm quite good at just hanging around because usually, that's what full-timers do. Our lives aren't much different than living in a house without wheels. It's fairly mundane, somewhat repetitive, and sometimes even boring; in other words, it's just like living in an ordinary house. The only thing different for us is we can pack up and go anytime or anywhere that strikes our fancy, and my fancy gets stuck pretty often.
Not a great picture but what can I say, I was driving down the Interstate at 60 miles an hour, towing the trailer and taking a picture with one hand, out of the driver's side window.
Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson is not the only place that has an airplane boneyard. The Pinal Airpark has a boneyard for commercial airplanes. This is where the airlines mothball the planes that they're not using. I would imagine with the Bat flu scaring passengers to death, there's probably a lot of planes here right now.
Picacho state Park campground. That's the Arctic Fox in the middle the picture. I picked that spot because it's on the outside edge of the campground so I can look out my door and see nothing but desert and mountains
There's a little walking path that runs right by my campsite. It moseys through the desert to the foot of the mountains.
