Travel Dates: January 25-31, 2014
We’ve had a busy week! We finished up our time at City of Rocks in NM and traveled on to Tuscon, Arizona to stay with some college friends. We LOVE visiting with friends, and using their waffle irons to make breakfast isn’t so bad either. 🙂 Sam also managed to lock us out of the Airstream (spare key locked in the truck with THOSE keys in the Airstream. Yeah. We’re good like that.), but AAA came to the rescue.
After a little sight seeing, and a haircut for Jess, we ended up at Snyder Hill on some BLM land with two other Airstreamers! We met Malimish & Aluminarium who introduced us to boondocking and the boys chatted about solar power for 2 days straight. We managed to squeeze in a trip to Saguaro National Park for the 5 kids to earn their Junior Ranger Badges and to check out the largest cacti we’ve ever seen. After running out of power and waking up to a cloudy morning, we said goodbye and traveled an hour north to Picacho State Park where we could plug in. We hope to add solar panels to our set up soon, but until then we’ll just have to keep the boondocking to a minimum.
Whew. There you have it in a nutshell. Look for posts detailing our group camping and visit to the National Park coming soon!
