Day 1 - Ants (what happened to Day 0?)

The pills arrived! We left at 10:50 am. Yeah!

Yesterday I said something about going back and forth from the house to Junior to get food, well we left the bread at home! Hopefully, that was all we left there.

Headed down hiway 79 toward Tucson; arrived at Kartchner Caverns State Park about 2pm. We had no reservations for either the campground or the cave. Not a problem. Turns out that most people don't want to camp in Arizona in the Summer (about 100 degrees here). Only three campers in the campground: us, a popup, and a tent. Were able to see the cave on the 3:40 pm tour. Not a huge cave, but very impressive facilities, and very interesting formations.

While in the park, we've seen deer, jackrabbits, lizards, Rock Wrens, Vermillion Flycatchers, many other birds, and ANTS!!! Big ants, little ants, red ants, black ants ... ants. We were able to set outside by the RV and have a glass of Vino without too much bothering by the ants, but there were nearby.

Internet access via cellular service is very slow. I've tried to upload some photos, but not having too much success. Later for them. Tomorrow it's off to Silver City, NM - we think.

Miles driven: 162
Driving Time: 2:52
MPG: 17.7 (got to do better)
Campground: $22
Fuel: Still on the first tank
