I am doing a lot of time lately between CA and NM on I-10. My halfway point is usually the great campground at Picacho Peak, between Phoenix and Tucson. I know there are a lot of Casitans in that area. It would be nice to meet a few of you there sometime for a night or two of wine and chat. The park is one of the best, so it is probably full in Snowbird season.

I wish I'd seen this post a week ago when I planned our next Casita trip! But we already had reservations in Bisbee at the Shady Dell on our next set of days off. Anybody stayed there or have recommendations on things to do and places to eat?

The Casitafornians on the way to the Blue Bonnett stop over at the Picacho Peak RV Resort for a night. It was a perfect night, cool and clear and lots of stars. The sunsets are spectacular. The rates have already dropped for the summer season, and the evenings are still cool, It would be a great place for the Arizonans to get together for mini rally. :)

Doggone it! We're going out of town for most of the next two months, but Picacho Peak is one place I've always wanted to camp and we live right up in Ahwatukee! Sorry we'll miss you, Roland!

Sue, we did Bisbee last year for my birthday and stayed at the Shady Dell. I hear that the diner on property is good for breakfast or lunch. We had a beer at a little bar in Bisbee that used to be the stock exchange in town (I think the name of the bar is something like "Stock Exchange") and it was really interesting. And the Copper Queen is THE place to go in town for dining or drinks. The Shady Dell is a little out of town, so you have to have a car to get back into downtown where everything is.

How embarassing....I just realized that I replied to my own post! I was wondering about two Sues on this board and saw that the original post was from last year...by ME... <_<
What a goof.
