Tried to sleep in last night here at the quiet Pima County Fairgrounds but still woke up around 7:30 and got up at around 8 o'clock. Took Yuma out trying to be quiet and let Nick sleep. It was such a warm and beautiful start to the day so Yuma and I sat outside till 9 o'clock and finally I figured it was time for breakfast.
Nick got up and we fixed breakfast and sat outside to eat. So nice to have two cups of coffee and 12 crackers with peanut butter and cheese. Then two boiled eggs followed by half a grapefruit and tangerine. And I was done before noon 😊 Going to be another warm day. Already 75 going to 82 later today.
After breakfast I decided to dump the gray tank. Uh oh! When I pulled the release, it started pouring out from a crack in the pipe below the shut-off valve. Got on the phone and called a mobile repairman and luckily, someone is coming out tomorrow morning to look at it and give me an estimate. Might be a quick fix if they don't have to order parts, otherwise it may be a week.
After that problem had a handle on it, we decided to drive to the west side of Tucson to find the BLM land I stayed at last spring. We had to hunt for awhile but finally located it so we drove around and located the perfect spot in case we are going to be waiting for parts. Can't see paying $30 a night waiting around.
On the way back I missed the turn-off to the RV park and ended up at the Vail exit. Having been there before visiting Nancy, Kissack Adventures I knew there was a food store in Vail. This a beautiful little town and growing like a weed. A few views of mountains overlooking the town.
I sent Nancy a text telling her we were visiting her town. She's at her other home in California till the end of the month. She sweetly wrote me and said that I could park in her driveway if need be. I would like her place better than the BLM on the west side of town, so if we're stuck here, I'll take her up on it. Thank you for the kind offer, Nancy😍
We finally made it home around 3:30 thankful there was AC in the Jeep. Nick had a little lunch and as I was sitting outside, a blog reader of mine came up to me and introduced himself. Dave is a good friend of Nancy's and she had told Dave we were here and they decided to make this place there home for the evening. Dave has a blog too, of course. Going RV Way . We had a nice talk. He and his wife Marcia and of course their little two year old cutie, Indy were coming from the Sacramento area heading back home in Florida. They've got a ways to go. So glad to meet a fellow RVer and blogger. Thank you for taking the time to stop by.Afterwards, Nick, Yuma and I walked over to the RV Sales show they are having here at the fairgrounds. Got to walk through a $500,000+ Tiffin MH that was huge. Nick looked through the camper vans to travel in. Only $77,000. What a deal! He'll have to get a job first. 😁
Finally time to call it a day and have dinner and watch a little football!
