Tuesday, November 28, 2017 (Travel to Sandys Restaurant and RV Park, Sunizonia, AZ)

We were all packed up and ready to hit the road by 9:00 this morning...and after big hugs, we said goodbye to Deb, Ray and Freya. Safe travels and we'll see you in a couple of weeks!

Some scenery pictures as we made our way up and over the mountain pass on highway 188 towards Globe. Theodore Roosevelt Lake in the distance...
Another hazy morning...

We turned onto highway 60 towards Walmart, about a mile west. I went inside to pick up a few things...beer and wine being 2 important requirements. To my amazement, they don't sell any liquor at this Walmart...it is in a school zone! Go figure!

We got back on highway 60 heading east and stopped at Fry's. The gas station wasn't busy so we managed to fill up with diesel...and we were towing! Diesel was $2.60/gallon. After that was done, I went into Fry's to purchase those 2 important items while Steve parked the rig and then brought our 6 empty gallon water jugs up to the water kiosk . There...truck topped up with diesel, drinking water jugs all filled...and beer and wine purchased...we're good to go!

We continued on hwy 60 for a short distance and then caught hwy 70 southeast to hwy 191...
Beautiful fall colours...

 Lots of cotton fields as we approached the Pima area...

 Glenbar Gin Inc, Pima, AZ...
Most of the cotton fields have already been harvested but we managed to pass by one that hadn't...


We arrived at our destination at about 2:30...Sandys Restaurant and RV Park...
To say it is an "RV Park" is a bit of a stretch...basically some permanent folks living in well aged RV's, along with a few that have tall grass growing around them..."storage", I guess. But for $25/night we had full hookups (including 50 amp service) and it is the closest RV park to Chiricahua National Monument, around 30 minutes. Oh...and if you want to stay a week here, it's only $75! However, there is absolutely no "it factor"...
After we got unhitched and set up, we basically just chilled inside for the rest of the afternoon. Steve edited pictures...he has a lot to catch up on!

    1. You are so right Debbie! There was another campground in the area but it was another 10 miles further away from Sandys RV Park.

  2. I'm sure it's quiet. We're beside the Interstate and not liking it so far. :-(

    1. It was very quiet. If you stay there long enough Dave it just becomes white noise and you don't notice it anymore. 😜

  4. You have to stay in questionable parks once in a while to make you appreciate the good ones!

    1. So true, it doesn't happen often. We were only there to sleep anyways. We would stay there again. The staff were great too.
