November 6, 2017. With mail in hand we grab a block of ice and head out taking 87 south and catching I-10 east to find the dog park in Marana, AZ. I love my GPS! This girl would be lost, literally, without it. I’m a right and left kinda girl; this go north, south, east or west kind of stuff confuses the heck outta me. With the GPS I have to deal with none of that, although I only use it for city/main road driving. I do not rely on it for any of this boondock stuff where you could end up, well, in the boondocks but not in the spot you were expecting.
I easily find the park and the boys have some fun. A lot of fun!!!
Once the boys have worn themselves completely out we head out towards the west side of Saguaro National Park.
We find a boondock* site in The Ironwood Forest to spend the night and then we are off on Hwy 86 toward Ajo. I was not looking forward to this drive as it looked on the map to be pretty desolate, but we were surprised.
Thanks for joining us! Hugs, Shawna
*For those who may be unfamiliar with the term “boondock” (also called, in more genteel terms, dispersed camping) it’s a camp made on BLM public lands or other places that have zero amenities. No water, no toilets, no tables, no nothing. Maybe a rock fire ring, but that would be a luxury site. 🙂
