I moved from the LTVA by Yuma over to a dispersed BLM area just outside Why, Arizona. I didn’t move for any particular reason other than to scratch my wanderlust itch. The weather is about the same as Yuma and the area is packed with quite a few rigs. The one advantage here over the LTVA is more trees and thus more privacy and less wind.
There is a spigot in Why where I can get water, but to dump tanks I will have to pay at Coyote Howls RV park. I will miss the convenience of a free dump and the big city of Yuma for all my supplies.
Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is 30 miles south of here, so I will probably visit there one of these days. The little town of Ajo, 10 miles north, has lots of history and sometimes entertainment in the town square. Ajo also has an IGA grocery store and Dollar General for a few overpriced items.
My plans after a few days here in Why – the legal stay limit is 14 days – is to maybe wander over to Tucson and down to Tombstone for a bit. I have stayed in the Santa Rita foothills before but it has been a while since visiting some historic sites below Tucson. As always, my plans can change at the drop of a hat.
