Today started early, one of the few days since we retired (except at the balloon fiesta) that we’ve awakened to an alarm. We wanted to be in Tucson by 8:30 for an early worship service at the Friends church there. It’s been 2 months since we had attended a Friends church and it felt comfortable. The pastor is a young man whose parents have been friends of ours for many years. His grandparents lived in the same retirement community as Mother in S. Hutchinson.
This church was one of several in Tucson that were firebombed last spring, so they are currently meeting in a small storefront. The pastor, Adam, says that they’ll probably be ready to move into the newly refurbished building about the first of the year.
Several of the attendees are full-time RVers who live in an RV park not far from the current location, so we felt right at home. After lunch, we drove through the South Forty RV Park, which is large and seems well maintained. We drove past several others on the drive out of town and checked out Tucson area RV parks on the internet after we got home. We’ll be going to Quartzsite, AZ in January for the mother of all RV gatherings, where a couple thousand RVs of every type and size come together for several weeks of RV show and rallies. We’ll be meeting other Eagle conversion owners from all over the country for an Eagles International rally, our first as Eagle owners. After that, we’re still undecided as to the next destination. Possibly Yuma, maybe Tucson? Flexibility, flexibility, flexibility!
