I've been thinking about when I want to leave Wickenburg and where I want to go and so far I still haven't made up my mind. Yesterday I was thinking I would go over to Tombstone, because it's a little cooler there and there's some things to do in town, but there's very little Boondocking around tombstone and if I went there for any length of time I might end up staying at an RV Park which is usually expensive in a tourist town like Tombstone.
Then this morning I was looking at the weather forecast in Tombstone for the rest of March, and even though the daytime temperatures were almost perfect, the nighttime temperatures were getting down into the high 30s which means that I would be running my heater some at night and in the morning which I'd rather not be doing if I can help it.
So this afternoon I started thinking about Yuma again. Now if you remember the last time I tried to go to Yuma it took me over a month and I only made it halfway, but this time my objective is more clear. I really would like to look at some of the Boondocking areas in Yuma, and it would be nice to be able to shop at a Walmart, and Yuma has two or three. And most of all I checked the weather in Yuma for the month of March and it's not all that bad, it looks like mid 80s for the daytime and 50s at night which means I wouldn't have to use any heat. Not having to use any heat, a lot of free Boondocking areas, and cheap Walmart prices sounds like an inexpensive place to live to me.
I googled up the distance from where I am to Yuma and it looks like about 160 miles. So pulling a trailer I of course have to go slower, and being a full-timer I of course have no concern for time, so depending on weather and traffic conditions I figure I can make it to Yuma in less than a week.
Like I said I haven't made up my mind yet but since the Boondork's Prime Directive #3 Is to “stay in locations where neither heat nor air-conditioning is required”, Yuma sounds like a good choice at this particular time.
