Hello Springwater, we are planning on spending a few months in Tucson this winter. If you don't mind I am exploring various options if not for this year for other years as we have committed to a location in Tucson this year. Where do you go in AZ, for how long and do you tow your RV or have a park model in AZ. Thanks Les

we stay in Quartzsite AZ for about 5 months in the winter.We tow our 5th wheel and stay parked for the 5 months. Hubby prospects for gold. We like to take a few trips during the winter, lat year went to Las Vegas for Christmas and Puerto Penasco at US Thanksgiving. Enjoyed both, we used Tour West America out of Yuma. They were great! Might do more this winter. We belong to the local metal detectors club, as they have about 10 claims you can go on to for prospecting. We shop in Parker, Yuma and Blythe Ca. We have friends who just bought a park model in Voyager rv in Tucson. I saw photos, looks real nice. We like the Quartzsite area, small town feel, except in January. Lots of vendors to shop and the big rv show and sale We have been going to this area since 2004-05. Any specific question, be glad to answer. Dona

Thanks for the information it sounds like you have an interesting time I haven't looked at the map to see where your RV park is located but it sounds like it muat be further south west that Tucson. Since you leave from basically the same are that I will be travelling. When do you usually head south and do you travel through Texas to avoid the mountains and potential weather conditions that can be encountered at higher elevations? I have spoken to a few people who go south west for the winter and that seems to be the general concensus to avoid the mountains.

we are 253 miles west of Tucson off the I-10. Almost to the Colorado river.(about 15 mies)
We are not in an rv park, but a neighborhood of 500 sites. They are all privately owned, but we rent.We share the lot with friends of ours from Reno Nevada. Our lots are 100x80. Each owner may have different amenities on their lots. We are very fortunate to have a large cool cover building and covered patio In the bldg. we have a full bath, washer and dryer,storage cabinets, side by side fridge and lots of lawn furniture. We really love this lot.
Hi Les,
We cross at Sarnia, take 69 thru Mich, into Indiana. Head to Indianapolis on 70, then to Effingham Ill. From there, we use I-44 once in Missouri St louis to Joplin, into Wichita Falls texas. Then to Abilene to pick up I-20 to I-10. No mountains in our route, just the smell of(money) Oil in Texas.

We usually leave about Oct 23-25th. Haven't looked at the calendar yet.
One year coming home we did I-40 in March=NEVER again. Not shorter and way colder..Being in no hurry, takes us 7-8 days. We always spent a night in Joplin Missouri at the Downstream casino, just beautiful and good food. 1st night free with players card.

heading to Trout Creek on tuesday for a 2 night stay at a friends cabin. Beautiful lake at his property, no electric or running water, and not taking the trailer.

Keep in touch, in case you think of more questions.

Dona
