On our arrival we were put out into overflow. This is where you stay until a full hook up site becomes available. They run a very fair system at Agave Gulch, everyone gets a site with full hook ups, Water-Electricity and a Sewer Dump Station.When in overflow you have none of these luxuries, that's when your beloved generator becomes your best friend. We didn't have one at this stage.You get to go into a full hook up site for 21 days and then you have to go out and back into over flow. This system works really well. At peak season you can be out there for about 7-8 days, but on a average it’s about 3 days max. Well for us it was.
After 2 nights in over flow it was our turn to go into the park.I was excited because now I could charge my computer in our 5th wheel. Second day in our site our neighbour pulls up in his car and strolls across to introduce him self..He says Howdy New Neighbour. This was the beginning of our great friendship with Jim and Rita Fitzsimmons the 3rd. A really fun couple to be around. I call them my feel Good Friends.Below is a picture of Jim and Rita.
Jim and Rita are both retired Nurses, Jim retired from The Navy, hence why he has a HUGE anchor hanging of the front of his Motor Home which I thought was odd when I first spied it.Jim and Rita were the first couple we met and made friends with, they reside in a special place in our hearts. Cant wait to catch up with them again.
Jim like’s to fly these from the top of his RV, I had to remind him everyday about 2.15pm to change it to a different one. They were pretty and I looked forward to a different one everyday. This one every section spun the opposite to the one above it.

Our Trip to Mt Lemmon With Jim & Rita
Jim and Rita invited us to go with them on a trip to the highest Mountain in the area, just on the out skirts of Tucson.We had a great day sight seeing and enjoying the company of our new Coodas (friends) It had snowed the night before, it was all good. Nice and cool. Just how I like it.
Fresh snow clinging to the trees.
Beautiful views looking over the valley.

Us out for Dinner.
After our trip to Mt Lemmon it was time to head home and do some serious relaxing. It was time again for me to hit the internet and tend to my Farm on Facebook, and post pictures so my family and friends could see what we were up to. Tonight my Old friend from Bunbury, in Western Australia Shirley who I went to school with and have remained best of friends since, sent me a video chat request on MSN Messenger. It was good to catch up with old chit chat. Below is a picture of Shirley and myself taken at our house before I left Australia.
Miss you my old friend
I have 2 Best friends in Australia, who have been in and out of my life over the years. My other Best friend is Gail ford. We have known each other for a long time as well, Both our boys went to Kindy together and they are now 37. A long time. Below is a picture of Gail and I taken on our dirty weekend away,
If you read this Fordy, I am still waiting for a MSN Video Chat.
Miss ya mate
Our time is coming to a end in Tucson, Arizona. In a few days we will be packing up and be on our way again..to where, who knows. Our friends Jim and Rita had already left for the summer.
In the last couple of weeks in Tucson we became friends with Dennis and Lea, who were helping out with the camp host situation. The were full timers up until they bought a house in Tucson which made all their little animals very happy. Dann and I slowly built up a relationship with Dennis & Lea while spending most of our time over in the office, Dann downloading movies and me hard at work farming on Facebook. I would wake up on certain mornings and ask Dann, I wonder if Dennis & Lea are on today? Lea always made a cake on the days that she worked. Gook cook !!! Now Dennis had a talent as well..he made some mean kick arse punch Margaritas which I quiet liked and I usually hate Margaritas .He added Ginger Beer to it. Below is a Picture of Dennis & Lea which I stole from her Facebook page.
