Current Location: Van Horn KOA, Van Horn, Texas
On Saturday morning, we made another run to Goodwill (our second in as many days) to drop off extra stuff we don’t need in the trailer. We figure we’ve dropped two or three hundred pounds of stuff off. We’ve also sorted out some items that will go to other family members and we’ll drop them off in Alabama next week until we can deliver them.
We also picked up a couple more items from Camping World that we needed. We also stopped by Lowe’s and got some wire rack shelving to put in our laundry closet to replace the questionable wood ones that are in there now. We didn’t get those mounted yet. After our shopping trip, we stopped by the trailer and grabbed the camera. We then met our friends Becky and Jeremy and their children at a coffee shop in north Tucson.
We loaded in our respective vehicles and headed up the windy road from the valley that Tucson is nestled in and ended up at over 8,000 ft. altitude at Mt. Lemmon. We stopped and did a little souvenir shopping after grabbing a light snack. We stopped on the way up and back down to grab some pictures (included below). We headed onto the Air Force base with Becky and Jeremy and visited with them at their trailer until fairly late in the evening. We said our goodbyes and drove back to our trailer.
This morning, we packed everything up, hitched up and headed out around 8:30 AM on our continuing eastward trek. We drove a fairly long distance today and stopped in Van Horn, Texas at the KOA we stayed in on the way out west last month. We gained two time zones on the way. Arizona is in the Mountain Time Zone but doesn’t honor daylight savings time, so we started in Mountain Standard Time, entered Mountain Daylight Time in New Mexico and entered Central Daylight Time just west of Van Horn. As a matter of fact, Van Horn is the western-most city in the Central Time Zone.
Here are pictures from Mt. Lemmon.
