Day 2 - Benson, AZ - TT

This morning after a decent "free breakfast" at the hotel, I packed up all of our stuff in the truck and we headed for the RV storage lot in Benson. Which was about 35 miles southeast of Tucson. No problems, we removed the cover, reconnected the ground wire to the battery bank, turned on the battery cutoff switches and breakers and we were on the road within an hour. The RV park isn't full so parking was straightforward even though the right angle back in spots are usually the most challenging. De-winterizing the water system took a bit of time and I still have a few more tasks but for now, it's time to relax.

I must admit that I was a bit concerned about leaving the truck in Tucson as well as wondering what I was forgetting with the trailer. My reason for the concern is that some 35 years ago, someone broke into our work van in Tucson. In many hundred thousand of miles of travel, the only place a vehicle was broken into was here. But then again, the only thing taken was a case of beer from the ice chest.

But, now that we are set up again at the RV park, I feel like I can relax again. It would be great if it was clear and sunny but I'm not going to complain about the temperature. But we did pick up an electric heater from Walmart this afternoon so we can use campground power for heat instead of our propane. Since it’s not getting anywhere near freezing, it should be fine...

Looks like Dom will be getting competition with regards to sunset pics from now on...

Not much competition. I don’t put in the effort to plan out the shots nor do the post processing. Just snap and post...
