Welcome to you on your first visit to Benson and the greater Tucson area. Don't be in too big a hurry to get down here. It was 100 degrees on my back porch yesterday here in Tucson. My daughter happened to call from Salem, Mass. to stick it to me about the weather. She was very kind to report that it was 61 and the trees were beginning to change back East. Anyway, Benson is a great location for exploring the whole southern Arizona area. Close to Tucson for big city stuff if needed. Tombstone, Bisbee, Kartchner Caverns State Park, Pima Air Museum in Tucson and Titan Missile Silo/Museum in Green Valley. Much, much more that I am probably forgetting. My wife and I would like to make a trip someday back to your part of the country, but we are in full parent watching mode at this point in our lives. We have to stay within one day of Tucson. Hope you have a great visit.

No hurry to get down there! What a contrast, it was 29 here early this morning with a stiff NW wind. We are headed there this week but never in a hurry, arrive sometime in November.

You will be good to go by November. I think this is our last hurrah when it comes to the hot weather. The monsoons are over so we are back to our usual dry/low humidity. The early mornings have been nice. We have friends that live in Freeport, Mn. that used to get out here to Tucson once in awhile during the winter. They have not been out for a few years.

Go to a car wash with a power spray, DO NOT use the brush attachment-they scratch the coating on the AS. Wet her down, take a mild car wash designed for the new cars with the polymer coatings on the paint and a microsoft wash mitt. Use a stepladder, I carry mine in the back of the truck, wash her down and rinse well. Then I dry her off with a sham. Bright as new. I wax her before we leave on any long trip. Don't be fooled by the 2015 AS, this is our third and our 15th RV. We have been traveling and camping our whole lives, now retired and traded a Gas Class A for this new one. Very long story.

Have a ball, the SW is our favorite place. PS: The North Rim is more spectacular, but they close the road in on Oct 15th OR after the first snow.

Hello & thanks from fellow nor'easter newbie,
We just pumped the "pink stuff" today....already looking & trying to plan for winter escape!
We have 25 nights over 5 trips thus far but trying to plan a winter escape is a bit overwhelming.
We would much prefer to head southwest rather than FL. Will be watching your posts on your first long adventure to AZ. Benson looks like a great location. Which CG are you visiting?
