We are staying at Davis-Monthan AFB, Tucson. We like the campground and the price is right ($15/night).
Spring baseball is nearby so we drove up to Mesa (outside of Phoenix about 110 miles from Tucson) and caught the Cubs and Texas Rangers game.
Outside near the concessions, some of the former greats were signing autographs and chatting with folks.
Last week we also were able to catch the Arizona Diamondbacks playing the Chicago White Sox here in Tucson.
You might think all we have been doing is playing baseball. Nope. We got in some golf with the regular Wednesday morning RV group here on base.
Then last week we volunteered at the local Tucson Habitat. A construction site is about 15 minutes from the base and we arrived to start work promptly at 7:00 AM.
We met some nice people and talked with the volunteer coordinator and site supervisor and the construction supervisor. We definitely will be back and are thinking about a Tues/Thurs work schedule. We will see.
Since we have been in Tucson we have gotten to see some old friends. In some ways we feel like old-timers since the ones we have seen are RV friends. We had dinner with Art and Gerri a few days after we arrived. We met them for the first time while in Quartzsite at the Tiffin Rally. Then Marti and Bill came over and we got caught up. We cooked steaks on the grill and had a great time. We first met them in Santa Fe when we all volunteered with Habitat de Santa Fe as Care-A-Vanners. Then we saw them last year while we were here.
A couple of nights ago we had dinner with Judy who winters here in Tucson. We first met her in Pontiac, IL while we were on our first NOMADS project together. Last night we were taking a walk around the campground and saw Jerry and Jenny. We met them here at Agave Gulch last year and also ran into them at Deming at the Escapees Park.
In a few minutes we are driving up to Phoenix to see Bub and Winnie ~ old friends from Albuquerque from years ago. Hopefully we will be able to get some tickets to see the Dodgers vs the Giants.
Suffice it to say we are thoroughly enjoying ourselves here in Tucson. Hope you are doing well where you are too. Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Until next time...
