Today has been kind of cloudy and chilly which according to the weather forecast is what its going to be like for the next three or four days. If that's the case I'll have to put away my amp sucking 17 inch Asus laptop and bring out my amp sipping 13 inch Asus laptop. I prefer to use the big laptop because it has better speakers in it, and of course it's better to watch things on a bigger screen. But since my 17 inch laptop is by far the biggest amp user in the Arctic Fox, and my batteries probably aren't going to be getting a whole lot of charging it looks like I'll be squinting at a 13 inch screen for a while.
All the horses and their trailers have gone so it's rather quiet at the fairgrounds now, and I don't see anything interesting coming up until next weekend when there's some kind of a big deal drag race at the dragstrip about a mile down the road from me so I'm looking forward to that... I love the smell of nitromethane in the morning.
I think all fairgrounds should copy what the Pima County Fairgrounds has done and have multiple venues for numerous types of events all in one relatively small area. Literally in five minutes I can go from the RV Park to events that are happening at either a dragstrip, a shooting range, a archery range, an automobile racetrack, a go kart track, or a motocross track, all on Fairgrounds property. The fairgrounds also hosts Escapees events, Good Sam events, and some kind of motorhome event, which I'm not familiar with, but from what I understand is a huge deal. And on top of that are the numerous events that are going on at the fairground itself almost every weekend.
All of that and the fact that Tucson is a tourist destination in itself adds up to being a great place for RVers with one small problem.... Altitude. Tucson is about 2400 feet high, which isn't exactly nosebleed territory but it can get fairly chilly here and more often than you might think, pardon my French, it snows. By comparison Phoenix is only about a thousand feet in altitude and very seldom has that "S" word problem.
