Greetings to the Young & Nelson show, from Patagonia, Az

The post of 26March2005 from Dr. C. is still applicable, although the state park offers only 2-way + a dump station.

You might want to consider the Patagonia RV Park, <www.patagoniarvpark.com >, limited to only 18 spaces with few amenities, i.e., three-way hook-up, limited cable tv, laundry, hi-speed wireless, but nothing frivolous except for shade from neighboring pecan, mesquite trees, and serenity.

A small town park, it has a curious, oil/water mixture of residents; quail hunters with fluorescent suspenders, camo clothing, perhaps Cabela camisoles after dark, and handsome bird dogs....and
bird watchers armed with bushnell binoculars, digital camera, a Peterson guide to western birds on the right rump, and a life list on the left.

And the ambivalent ...... that would be us.

The town (pop. 835) < www.patagoniaaz.com > is poor, a landfill in waiting, cool at night, pleasant during the day. Heterogenous, it is not overrun with silver hairs whining about the weather and Part D, there is no traffic, little crime (if you disallow for domestic disputes), good library, small jail, and more saloons than churches. Also winter home to several writers and hundreds of bird species. Or maybe it's the other way around.

In lovely, hikable, high mountain ranch country, you are a scenic drive from Nogales, Sonora Mx (20 miles), Kartchner Caverns (45), Tuscon, if you insist (60), Tombstone, "the town too tough to die" (60), Bisbee, motto;"more tattoos than teeth" (70), and Tubac, "where art and history collide" (45). Additional upsides; not a single franchised food outlet, more that 38 miles to an interstate off-ramp, and 22 miles away from the arkansas big box. Define tranquility.

I could provide a local tour if you like. Regardless of where you decide to land, have a nice holiday season and a pleasant aluminum vacation.

You might consider staying at Beaudry RV. It's a huge dealership with a large RV park. Premium hookups, a couple of pools, and if you need anything, they have a camping world and are of course the biggest dealership in the area in case something breaks, I am sure they'd be happy to clean you out Beaudry RV Resort, Tucson, Arizona. It has a good central location and you could tour all the state/National parks from there and still be close to malls and restaurants at the end of the day.

Tucson stuck it to all the RVr's a few years back with a tax to pay for a baseball stadium for spring training for a bunch of pampered pro athletes (I guess you can see where I stood on this issue). That put a pretty good dent in the winter RV vister crowd from what I understand.

Ixnay on Patagonia. That is a prime destination for folks from Tucson and the surrounding area. It will be sold out by about noon on Thursday of every week with RVs in the parking lot with no where else to go. There is some confusion on state parks and reservations. Safford does and I think most do not, but you would need to call each one. Either way, definitely not a destination to plan on.

Beaudry RV, parking lot that it is, is quite close to the AS dealer in Tucson.(I can't remember the name.) Well equipped dealer, with a very shabby appearance.

I stayed at Tucson Meadows RV, for about a month last winter. Slightly more than a parking lot. Not a bad place, friendly folks, quiet, well equiped, and had great place to walk the dog along the river (Pantano Wash, no water)

The dealer is Oasis RV, located on Benson Hwy, not far from the airport. The place is not much to look at, but they have a good parts and service department.

Yeah, Oasis RV, I forgot the name. About a mile from the Beaudry/Campingworld complex. I really was rather shocked at the appearance of the place (Oasis). But, they were very helpful, well stocked, and the credit card machine worked very well........ T
