Gila Bend to Ft Huachuca, Arizona
Driving thru the desert
Continuing eastward, we passed through Tucson along Interstate 10 until we reached Hwy 90 going south. Even though it was only 37 miles off the beaten path, it took us almost an hour with the wind whipping around our van to arrive at the Army post. At times, my heart jumped into my throat as I white-knuckled the drive. Remember, we are still getting used to driving this 9.5 foot tall vehicle!
Ft. Huachuca, Arizona
Ft. Huachuca is an active Army Post and if you are on active duty, retired, or the spouse of either you can stay in their RV park. It is named, “Apache Flats” and is quite a drive through the post, past the old barracks of the “Buffalo Soldiers”. The RV park is small but well-maintained, with a welcoming reception area. The staff was very accommodating and even changed our space so that we were closer to the restrooms/showers. There was a laundry facility attached to the restrooms and, albeit gently worn, the showers were hot and spacious. The gravel spots were level and we had full hook-ups for $22. We would definitely stay here again.
