A couple of times while visiting my Dad in Arizona my wife and I stayed at a great little county park in our motor home just off the Carefree Highway.  Good mountain bike trails.  Fairly close to the Mariners spring training facility in Peoria too.

Danny, when I was a youngster I spent summers in Bisbee with an uncle who worked in the open-pit copper mine.    There's lots of stuff to explore.  He used to take me in his old army jeep out into the desert to look for turquoise and other rocks for my collection and to target-shoot with his rifles.   Those were fun summers

My first road trip from Flagstaff down to Oak creek canyon, through Sanoma, Cottonwood, Jerome and on through Prescot before dfiving back down out of the  high country through Joshoua Tree National forest sold me on Arizona for life. I have been back there so many times that I couldn't tell how many.
    Unfortunately I saw Sanoma attract too many people too the Oak creek canyon and polution levels caused the swimming sites to be closed. Beer bottles and disposable diapers left in one of the most beautiful spots in America. I never could understand why people would do such a thing.
     I wrote the route above by memory, so if I messed up feel free to correct me.

  Never been to Bisbee but Jerome is an old copper mining town with a musem, built on the mountainside. A very interesting town to visit on the way to Prescott coming up of of the red rock area. Where a lot of old westernss were filmed and they would say it was Texas.

Danny, I have a cousin from Bisbee who was a world champion at quick-draw.   He even stars in a video game called "Fast Draw".  Wes Flowers is his name.  He has worked on several western films as an adviser and as stuntman.  I know there were a lot of western movies filmed around there.   He's had some health problems and now just has a gunsmith business.

That's funny, I often feel that way too - on a all forums in general (I'm very new here).  I guess it's probably just paranoia if we are all thinking it.
