RE: Morning Lows

30 just south of Tucson, AZ @ 5am. Hard freeze last two nights! rocmoc n AZ This concerns me. We want to winter in Tucson next year. I thought it stayed pretty warm there. Will I have to worry about water lines freezing in my 5er or is this 30 degree day an anomaly? We are a distance out from Tucson. Tucson is warmer and does get down to freezing a few times but not often. Tucson is at 2200 feet and we are at 3300 feet. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Percentages

Nice to hear positive comments about Texas from Arizona. No ill will was met. When anything becomes of interest anywhere I travel or live including AZ and Mexico, I share. ONLY to inform, not to be a PITA. For your info AZ has been colder than normal, 24 degrees yesterday morning and 30 this morning (South of Tucson). rocmoc n AZ

RE: Percentages

Will be interesting to see if the News release of the first local transmitted Zika case in RGV will impact the Snowbird numbers. "(CNN)Texas has become the second state in the continental United States to confirm a locally transmitted case of the Zika virus, state and federal health officials said Monday. Lab results confirmed the virus in a non-pregnant female resident of Brownsville last week. She has not traveled to an area where the virus is circulating and has no other known exposure to the virus that would have put her at risk for infection. Health officials said they are not surprised to confirm local transmission of this virus in South Texas, near the Mexico border. "We knew it was only a matter of time before we saw a Zika case spread by a mosquito in Texas," state Health Commissioner Dr. John Hellerstedt said. He added that more cases are expected, but officials do not believe the virus will be widespread." Did not seem to slow down the number of Snowbirds in Florida! rocmoc n AZ

Moisheh, do you still have to be super careful of the traffic police after you turn South at the transformers? rocmoc n AZ

RE: getting old

I do understand the age and health issue question. I am struggling with the decision to restart rving in a class a diesel after many years of absence. Will the aches and pains of the arthritis brothers allow me the enjoyment that my wife and I use to know rving. Retirement in 17 and at my age of 71, do we start again. I think I need a hit in the head to remember the joy of the road and the places we stopped. Procrastinating very day but looking for the unit. Help and guidance please. Chefalan/Arbonne Bonnie Do it!!!! Just drive shorter distance. Sitting around a campfire one evening in a Mexico RV Park the topic came up, "How long?". The final agreed upon answer was from the experience of the group about past RVers that drove to this Mexico Campground. 81, eighty one! rocmoc n AZ

RE: getting old

As I have aged I have changed the phrase Golden Years to the Rusty Years. Being very active racing off-road motorcycles and other similar active unsafe sports, I am now having to finally make the adjustment to safer activities. Doc says if I fall on the shoulder after the current repair job it is gone forever. What a bummer, no longer Superman! rocmoc n AZ (still healing)

RE: Come To Kino

Will try as soon as the shoulder is well and the Doc & PT team allow me to drive the MH. Your beer is always cold and the local food is great. Also the off-roading (hard pack and some sand/small dunes) is some of the best to be found on Mexico mainland. You can leave from the park with always a kind wave from the local Police. rocmoc n AZ (still healing @ home)

RE: Is it just my imagination or what?

Where I am located in Southern Arizona, Snowbirds are already arriving early and in heavy numbers. This is both RVers and persons who own or stay in a home/apt. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Nogales help, please

Walmart in Nogales works BUT beware this is not a quiet Walmart. It is open 24/7 with a lot of produce & goods trucks staying overnight so more like a truckstop. On the positive side no problem running your gen all night with white noise from Fans drowning out the traffic noise. In and out is on the tight side but very doable. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Nogales help, please

About 10 miles south of Tucson on Hwy19 (road to Nogales) there is a Casino (free boondocking) on the East (left) side of the road. You will see the sign for the Casino a few miles before the turnoff. Easy off, safe and lots of room. Stay the night and about an hour travel time to the Nogales crossing. Here is their site, http://casinocamper.com/casinolocations/54-arizona/134-desert-diamond-casino-i-19 . Also good food! rocmoc n AZ

RE: Agua prieta

The road from Agua Prieta to the Toll Road south to Zacatecas is a two lane road with a mountainous section between Aqua Prieta and Nuevo Casas Grande. Unless you want to see the ruins (which are mostly recreations and not original) or you want to go to Mata Ortiz to see the home of Mata Ortiz Pottery (we enjoyed this sidetrip very much), I suggest the Santa Teresa Crossing near the New Mexico / Texas border just West of El Paso. Easy crossing and flat multi-lane roads all the way south. There is a Pemex on the West side of the road you can overnight camp at just South of the turnoff to Nuevo Casas Grande on the road to Chihuahua. Went inside, ask if OK to stay overnight offered to pay a little for goodwill. Parked under the lights near the store & pumps. Stay at the Casino just north of the Santa Teresa Crossing and easy drive to the Pemex. If not drive all the way to Chihuahua. Just another choice. We were traveling North when we crossed on both routes so never had to deal with paperwork at either location. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Surprise, Gasoline prices to increase

Just remember how happy we were when the fuel was cheaper than USA & Canada. Just remember the exchange rate is now near 20 to 1 and when the fuel was cheaper the exchange rate was near 10 to 1. Hopefully you will remember the cheap fuel in the USA when prices go up in the future and they WILL! Everything washes out in the end but the fun while in Mexico is what you want and will REMEMBER. rocmoc n AZ

RE: One month in Mexico

Thanks for all the great input. I now want to move around rather than stay in one spot. Also, I never even thought about insect invasions. These things could really ruin a trip for me. I definitely will avoid places with this problem. Looks like I have a lot of planning ahead and thanks again for all the valuable input. Take a new product from Coleman (old product in Europe), Coleman SkinSmart bug repellent (not sold in Mexico) found in USA Walmarts. Only thing We found effective on the no-see-ums. One can lasted the two of us a week. We also changed our window screens to No-see-um screen material which has smaller holes (does not effect air flow). No-see-um screen can be purchased online or locally at Lowes. Never had a problem until we ran out of SkinSmart. Also Walmart has a No-see-um suit made of the screen material for around $15. They also were very effective for sitting out in the evening. rocmoc n AZ (no Mexico this year healing from rotator cuff surgery) :(

RE: One month in Mexico

No-see-ums and Mosquitoes can be a problem when at a coastal campground. Recommend paying / reserving a week at a time so you can move on if they are a problem. Also loud music from beach restaurants and smoke from burning palm fronds in the evening can be enough to ruin your stay. Don't overlook moving inland and up in elevation for cooler weather and fewer bugs. rocmoc n AZ

RE: US 191 Flaming Gorge area

No problem, made same trip last June/July. Recommend Skull Creek Campground near the Gorge. Small & quiet. Was able to fit our 36' Class A into a site all the way to the rear of the CG that allowed us full use of our solar, sat TV & ATT service. Great location central to daytrips in Flaming Gorge. Continued on Northward without any issues. One of our best stops on the trip. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja
