Where I stayed
Kartchner Caverns State Park
I did my rounds of good-byes to all my fellow SoloTrekkers and unplugged. This week has been fun and I'm really glad I met all these folks, but the road is calling.
As I approached Tucson the rains began and as I rounded the Whetstone Mountains the winds were bouncing me all over the road. I pulled into Kartchner Caverns State Park around 2pm and got one of the last campsites. As I write the winds are pushing the van back and forth, the rain pounds on the windows and, of course, it’s leaking. Oh well. The storm should pass tonight and I hope to get in some good hiking and a cavern tour or two before I leave on Monday
I learned some amazing things from the SoloTrekkers group – here are some of my favorites:
Some of the best cheap one-nighter boondocking places include – hospital parking lots, elks clubs (gotta join first), 24 fitness, classy looking neighborhoods.
Happy Hour is everyday at 4pm
Never pass up a potluck
Strap it down or it will rattle
Silver backed bubble wrap makes great window insulation for heat and cold
A solar panel is no good without an inverter
And, I gotta visit The Slabs!!
