Tucson Arizona

In Tucson, we stayed at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base FamCamp.  The FamCamp is one of the best military RV parks we have seen.  Davis-Montham (aka the Bone Yard) is a storage and salvage facility for deactivated aircraft.  Three years ago we toured the bone yard which continues to be  a very impressive sight.
 The FamCamp has some excellent desert landscpaing.  We were lucky to get a 50amp site. The park does not allow reservations.  Two days after our arrival, the park office had a waiting list for hook-up sites and was sending new arrivals to their overflow no-hook-up section.





So far this is the only campground where we have found a pet bathing kiosk.

Although our primary reason for stopping in Tucson was to refill our medical prescriptions, we had the chance to visit our  friend Stephen Phillip and to met his lovely family.  Stephen BBQed some outstanding pork chops and we had a great time getting to know the family and trade "war" stories.

After several days our prescriptions were transferred from the Virginia military pharmacy and we picked up the refills.  Our next stop was to the north of Phoenix.
