While in Tucson, AZ we saw that fellow bloggers Laurie and Odel from Semi-True Tales From Our Life On The Road were in town. We tried to meet up with them a few times in the past but something always seemed to come up.
We were determined to make this happen!
So we made plans to meet on Super Bowl Sunday. No worries, the game was later in the day, so we met in the morning.
Plus Laurie had a brilliant plan to take a hike when we got there. Perfect for working off the Super Bowl goodies we were to consume later.
We met them at their motorhome, where they were currently parked at Justin’s Diamond J RV Park, on the east side of Tucson. There are some lovely hiking trails just off the back of the rv park. So it couldn’t have been more perfect.
Speaking about Justin’s Diamond J RV Park, we’ve been there before! We didn’t remember it until we started walking around, but we tried to stay here a couple years ago and they were all full. Oh well. There’s always next time. It’s really quiet, no trains or planes and great hiking trails right outside the park. Unlike where we are now, near the AFB. Nothin but noise, noise, noise. So it’s definitely going on the list for next time.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Laurie and Odel.
We had some interesting talks about politics, the state of the economy and such. Usually taboo topics, but for some reason we ventured their. No arguing, No raised voices. Just a nice conversation. It’s nice to be able to talk to someone, with different views, and not get your blood pressure boiling because your butting heads. Rational and level headed. The way adults should be :) (Are you reading congress?)
We walked away unscathed from our political conversation and with some different points of view to ponder over.
