We stayed for several nights coming and going from Tucson on a small corner of BLM land just west of Tucson. Convenient to town but noisy with highway traffic. And the morning sun is blocked by the hill so our mornings are cold upon rising.
But life is much more about our environment. It’s always interesting to meet the characters who are your neighbours for a night or a week.
Charlie lives full-time in his trailer. He has many sad stories to tell, but he’s otherwise upbeat and friendly. He let the kids take over his little trailer to watch some of his 400 DVD collection and he made them micro-wave popcorn and bought them Pepsi’s. He ordered 4 pizzas to feed us but wouldn’t join us for lunch since he ate spicy wings when he drove into town to pick the pizzas up.
Rob and Dee had been checking out my blog from what I have painted on our cargo boxes so already knew some things about us before they came over to introduce themselves. They have their own amazing story of sailing around the world for 17 years!!! You should especially read Rob’s story of winning the lottery!
The wind comes, the wind blows….and so do we. Off to the next spot.
