We spent a few more nights boon-docking outside of Tucson at Snyder Hill. During those days we visited the Pima Space & Air Museum. Jerry had been through the museum years ago. We went this time to take what they call the Boneyard Tour at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. It was conducted in a beautiful air-conditioned coach and was very interesting. We saw hundreds and hundreds of planes not used anymore. They are mainly kept around for parts. The docent was very good and Jerry and I both found the tour very interesting. That evening we drove a short distance to another RV park and had dinner with an old high school buddy of Jerry's and his wife, Don & Janet Dart. I had never met them but we all hit it off and had a wonderful dinner and evening together. They also live full-time in their RV.
Our last day in that area we visited Mission San Xavier Del Bac. It was another wonderful and interesting day. We had another great docent and learned so much about the history of the mission.

We then headed southeast to Benson, AZ - less than an hour from Tucson - our home for two weeks. We are at the SKP Escapees Saguaro Park and loving it. Every Escapee park we have ever been at we have found friendly people, great parking sights and lots of activities going on right in the park.

|Our first night at the park they had a wonderful Barbershop group entertain us followed by free root beer floats.|
|The following night the entertainment was the Elliot's - a local family that plays and sings.|
|Some mornings Teddy is just not anxious to get up and get going|
