We ended up staying at Lazy Days KOA, even though it was double the cost of the military RV park on Davis Monthan AFB. Tucson was (of course) having record-high temperatures and the Lazy Days offered shaded spots, which were well worth the money!
We intended to only stay two nights, but the second day there, I had to pull out my passport for something, and realized it was EXPIRED! Thank goodness I had to use it that day, or I never would have even thought to check it before driving to Canada. Luckily, Tucson is one of the few cities where you can get a same-day passport renewal (for a $65 expediting fee). Given the delays in receiving our mail because of the forwarding service, I never would have had a valid passport in time for Canada if it weren't for the same-day service in Tucson. Whew!!
The internet at Lazy Days was horrible, T-mobile was not showing me any love, and I had papers to grade and travel planning to do! Luckily, Sentinel Peak Brewing Company had free high-speed WiFi and a bartender that kept me hydrated. (Yeah, yeah, I could have gone to a Starbucks, but its all about supporting local small business, right?)

grading all those papers a little less painful!
After all of that running around Sierra Vista and Tucson, I felt a crash coming on, so we stayed another night in Tucson. We just kind of puttered around the RV, made a run to Trader Joe's, and figured out our proposed schedule the next few weeks. Next up: Flagstaff!
