Turned off the I 10 & went down through Ajo & Sells before arriving in Tucson. Saw lots of border patrol vehicles & were stopped at a checkpoint about 45 mi from the border & 30 miles from Tucson. A sniffer dog checks the vehicle & our passports were checked.

Went to the Titan Missile Museum, just out of Tucson, extremely interesting. At one point in time the US had 3 sights all of which had 18 Titan ICBM, they were the largest ICBM's in the US & had 9 megaton of power each. They were decommissioned in the early 1980's & the others were all destroyed. This is the only one that remains as it was in those days, although now inactive. The tour takes you underground where they were stored.

We are staying in the parking lot of Casino Del Sol, on the outskirts of Tucson, we reckon there must be at least 50 RV's parked here for the night.

Today has been even warmer, high 80's & tomorrow is supposed to be in the 90's, at least the nights are cooling down
