LIVE AT FORT HUACHUCA & ON KINDLE.
Sunday morning we left The Rovers Roost, an Escapee RV park in Casa Grande, Arizona. They offered the first night free in their boondock section. Remember our first night at Dome Rock in Quartzite, Arizona was on BLM (Burea of Land Management - government owned land.)- and was free? And now as members of the RV club, Escapees, we spent our second night at no cost. For the first two days of this trip we have spent nothing on camping. Of course we are not hooked up to electric or water , but that is the beauty of being self-contained. I carry my own water and a generator that powers the microwave, the furnace for chilly nights and, oh yes, and the lights.
About half way to our destination , the Elks Club in Sierra Vista, Arizona, we pulled off next to a gas station. We were both needing to stretch our legs and my friend Vicki's dog ,Tika, needed to answer nature's call. I enjoy traveling with Vicki and Tika because they go for lots of walks. A gravel road led off into the scenic dessert where the cacti were a magnificent surprise.
We arrived at the Elk Lodge in Sierra Vista. I paid for two nights at $13.00 a night which included electric, water, pool tables and a full bar if one is so inclined. Vicki had time to make on appointment to have her turn signal fixed.
On Monday we took care of errands and by afternoon squeezed in a visit to Fort Hauchuca. It is an operating Army training base and had a wonderful museum.
This area was Cochise country and the statue in front of the museum depicted the Army's relationship with Geronimo.
