Saturday, February 26, Desert Trails RV Park, Tucson, AZ, Day 2 - 0 Miles, 4,564.9 Miles for the Trip

I switched to Verizon last night and found it very slow. Rechecked the speed & it was down to 2.4Mbps down & 2.9Mbps up. I switched back to AT&T and it was more usable at 24.4Mbps down & 4Mbps up. I guess that there are lots of folks on the Verizon tower around dinner time.

Another cool morning with my 8:30 walk at 37°F. By 1:00 it was up to 65°F. I had to get use to not rushing my coffee so I could turn off the inverter; even made a Jimmy Dean Biscuit & Sausage Gravy breakfast bowl in the microwave without any concern for the batteries (not that it has been a problem since I have 3 100 amp hour lithium Battleborn batteries).

While not as large as Organ Pipe's Twin Peaks campground, this place is large enough that I managed to walk a mile around the park without repeating any of the roads. For the most part, very tight sites where, if you have a slide out you will likely be in your neighbor's site. Not much road traffic noise, although there is a shooting range near by that produces lots of morning gunfire.

I finished Nita Prose's The Maid. A bit different from my usual mystery, but worth the read. Started John Saul's Nathaniel.

Around 3:00 I headed for the showers. Nice shower head with adjustable water temperature, plenty of hot water & a stall large enough to be comfortable. The drying area is part of the shower stall & the floor gets wet. 2 hooks for clothes & towel, and a shelf for soap & shampoo. Overall I'll give it a B, even better if they separated the drying area from the shower. It is possible to use the bench outside the showers next to the sinks, but not practical for the shy!

Dinner was a microwaved evol Butternut Squash & Sage Ravioli bowl.

Until Tomorrow -
