Feb/Mar - Tucson

Feb 4, 2017 to March 3, 2017

Staying at the Lazy Days RV Park in Tucson, AZ

Small Truck and Camper

Loaded up and ready to leave for Tucson in the morning.  Left 6:00 in the morning with light snow and temps at 19 degrees.

========================================
First leg is done 549 miles and 9.4 miles per gallon and average speed 50 MPH.

We left two days early since there was a chance of show/ice and made to Tucumcari and decided to spend one of the two extra nights and explore this section of Route 66.  Staying at the Tucumcari KOA just off highway 40. High suppose to be 70 degrees and 36 tonight welcome relief to the 19 degrees we left in Kansas.  

Explored town and not much other then lot old style gas stations, old style motels and Route 66 trinkets shops. They say the busy time is Apr to Oct.

 Looks like a great dual rear wheel truck.

======================================

Second leg 322 miles and average of 9.5 miles per gallon.  Left about 9:00AM and got to Truth or Consequences and watched the Super Bowl.  Dang thought the Falcons had in the bag!!  Probably going to spend two nights here and check out the hot springs.

  

==========================

Made it to LazyDays KOA in Tucson AZ on the 7th about 3:00 PM.  Traveled 322 miles at about 9.5 MPG averaging 64 MPH but who is in hurry.  We have a grapefruit tree on our site that are ready to pick.
