Goodbye Tucson

Tucson logistics and home

To avoid paying for a taxi to the sirport I chose to stay at the airport Quality Inn on Benson--the closest hotel to town that had an airport shuttle. I needed to pick up a duffle from the main post office in Tucson (a friend had sent it to me care of General Delivery) to put my backpack in for flying. I walked to the post office through questionable sections of town--feel much more conspicuous as a walker in town where everyone has cars. Then--a flight back to Ashland, Oregon.

What I would have done differently on the hike:

1. Water cache at Canelo Pass
2. No re-supply at Tucson, but send a box to La Posta Quemada Ranch in Colossal Cave. Then re-supply at Oracle.

I am already planning next year's hike, all the wiser from my experience this spring. Hopefully, I will finish next spring.
