Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Get Back

"Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner/But he knew it couldn't last/Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona/For some California grass."

Well why would anyone leave Tucson?  I love the area. We picked Catalina State Park as our home here for a few days. It was such a good choice. As well as the area being simply beautiful, there were some day trips that added to the fun, and a campground and weather that helped make the evenings enjoyable.  One of the neat things about revisiting an area with people who haven't been there is either showing off your favorites or discovering again through others eyes. We had the opportunity for both.















Our first day trip was to the Pima Air and Space Museum. The last time Don visited an air museum was the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon and I had declined accompanying him, thinking I wasn't that interested. After visiting this museum I may have been wrong. It was an informative but interesting visit. And of course I had Don along to answer my hundreds of questions about each plane and period of time they were in the air.  There were several hangars full of planes, as well as over an acre of outdoor displays.  Kudos to Brenda for selecting this. A successful day!
















Our next day trip was a jaunt to Tombstone. I think last time we visited we weren't in the right mood, as I had stayed we didn't see a need to go back. But my apologies to Tombstone tourism, as this visit we actually enjoyed. Maybe it was the additional company as well. We wandered the streets and shops, had a fabulous lunch and spent a rather long time in the museum. We didn't take any photos here as they were posted in the blog form our last visit.  Check it out here if you wish, from our 2014 trip.  When we returned home we actually watched a Wyatt Earp movie, so our OK Coral education was complete!

Not to be outdone by our need for RV tires, Ken needed a truck tire as well. As they were headed home to Saskatchewan after this, the repair which turned into a replacement was taken care of in Tucson. Seems simple enough but nothing is ever simple.  In any case though they did get a new tire put on.

This wraps up our three weeks with Ken and Brenda. It was a great time together and they will be missed. This is a photo from our hike but a fitting farewell!
