Yesterday, after leaving Allen Street, I headed over to the Boothill Graveyard.
Wasn’t very crowded there either. I walked around the grave sites, which there were many and took photos of the more interesting ones. Most of them were made of piles of rock with a wooden head marker. It was kind of a lonely place sitting on a hilltop just north of Tombstone.
After leaving the Boothill Graveyard in the early afternoon, I headed up Rte 80 to Benson and caught the I-10 to Tucson. Was an easy drive.
It wasn’t long before I arrived at the Casino Del Sol in Tucson, Arizona. Been here a number of times and it is the best parking lot for just resting and getting ready for the real boondocking to begin.
It’s always crowded here in this huge section of the parking lot, but a very quiet place to stay.
Here is a photo taken early this morning. Right now it is a little overcast, but it is going to turn sunny with a warm 77 for a high.
For the first time, I made a full breakfast of eggs and bacon and half a grapefruit and OJ. If you ever want to lose weight just come with me on one of these three month adventures.
Luckily, I brought both size 36 and 34 waist size pants with me. Without Dolly’s fine cooking and nightly deserts, I am back into my size 34 pants once again. I was at my last buckle hole in my belt and now I’m at the third buckle hole again where I should be.
Well, I got one of the two accomplished. I did find a Dish outlet and picked up a remote, but would you believe there is not one truck washing place in this whole city?! The one I went to several years ago closed down.
I guess I won’t be washing the MH here. Maybe I’ll find a place in Quartzsite when I get there. I hate to leave it dirty, but have no choice.
These are the first Saguaro cactus of the winter.
Once I returned from the Dish store, I synced the TV and Dish receiver to the remote and called it a day. For some reason, I feel tired even though I haven’t done much. Must be the week of traveling catching up with me.
Tomorrow, I will be heading further west to my first boondocking home for a week or so. That’ll give me time to rest up and learn to relax a little.
See you later.
