We arrived in Tucson Wednesday around 5pm. Our destination for the next two nights was Rincon Country West, a large 55+ resort community. There are over 1100 sites on the map, and though we have not done a spot by spot inspection it seems that over half are Park Model homes. We chose this location because we knew they had 8 pickleball courts. Denise had contacted a winter resident prior to our … Continue reading →
Traveling across Texas we emailed all three of the contacts listed on the USAPA Places to Play for Las Cruces, New Mexico. We were looking for a place to play either Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning, before we headed to Tucson. Later that same day we received a lovely response from Angela S. She provided us information on where we could play on Wednesday morning. She answered our questions about RV … Continue reading →

It took the office attendant some time to locate our reservation, but we were directed to spot 74. Unfortunately, that spot was occupied so back to the office we went. It turned out that the attendant’s difficulty was because the reservation on file, had us coming … Continue reading →
Before leaving Corpus Christie, we stopped to visit the USS Lexington which the Japanese referred to as a “ghost” ship for her tendency to reappear after reportedly being sunk. We purchased our tickets for $12 before leaving the base, saving ourselves a dollar. Arriving by 9:30am gave us the opportunity to see children, sleeping bags in hand, disembarking having camped on board the previous night. … Continue reading →
