Good morning! Here in South Texas we are in a rainy sprinkling couple of days, then a nice cold front will arrive in Sunday! We had an uneventful trip home from Sierra Vista Arizona and arrived safe and sound on Saturday the 24th! One positive thing about traveling on IH 10 West – there is very little traffic, in fact there is not much of anything on IH 10 from Kerrville, Texas to El Paso, Texas. So leaving on the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving was great as far as any traffic issues.
Of course, we discovered our Routers were both dead, so we had to deal with that. By Monday morning the new Network Routers were in place and that problem resolved. As always, there were a few more days to get our normal routine.
We enjoyed our 14 day trip, visiting Tombstone, Desert Diamond Casino in Sahuarita, Arizona, the San Xavier Mission in South Tucson and a 2nd trip to Tombstone. We visited with my friend Nancy from Benson Arizona, Doug and Jean, whom we met in 2005 through the Radio Ham Club, and Billy and and Lonnie. It was great visiting with friends.
We stayed at the Garden Place Hotel which was across the way from Ft Huchachu. It was a great place with wonderful staff who provided great service. The weather was very pleasant, but not cold enough for me. I was hoping for some snow on the mountains.
Here are some pictures from Tombstone, Desert Diamond, Garden Place, and the surroundings of the Sierra Vista and Tombstone area.

Sierra Vista is 4,500 feet elevation nestled in the Huachuca Mountains! Great place to visit and stay and become a Touristo!
Have a great day!
