This board is very quiet - been stalking it for a few months and have to admit not much going on here. Sort of like the Virginia board.

Anyway my spouse Cootie Queen and I are coming to AZ in January. We have to come now because all the expenses are paid for except our rental car. We will be in Phoenix area for a week. Will be running (me) in the Rock n Roll Half Marathon Jan 14th. We have travel intentions to Williams and Tuscon two other days (Tuesday and Thursday). That leaves Sat, Mon, Wed, Fri to tour and enjoy Phoenix area. Any recommendations of must see attractions would be nice. This is our first trip to Phoenix and except for a trip to Yuma several decades ago to AZ too.

We will be limited because CQ has an energy sapping ailment that prevents her from doing any long or strenuous hikes. So we are interested in easy hikes (less than a mile) that give us a chance to see the sights of the area and maybe collect a few letterboxes. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated on must finds in the area that meet this criteria.

Thanks, BBStacker

The Desert Museum in Tuscon is awesome. We rented a scooter for my husband and he was able to go everywhere. Everyone we talked to said it was a must and we totally agree.

Oh thanks for the info. We are determined to go through the Boneyard at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Hopefully we'll have time for the Desert Museum also.

The Heard Museum in Phoenix is great for the Arizona history. Also would love to throw a meet'n'greet for you if you can give a day&time when you would be free either in Phoenix or Tucson.

Heard Museum is definitely on our "to do" list.

Meet n greet will probably only work on Wednesday (1/17 in early evening) or on Friday (1/19). We will be staying in Tempe so it's probably best to have something in Phoenix area.

Darn, I'll miss you by a week! I'll be flying into Phoenix and staying in Sedona for a few days in early January.

I visited Phoenix last January and had a lovely time. The highlight for me was the Desert Botanical Garden in Papago Park. The park itself is a lovely, huge park that includes the Phoenix Zoo, some great hiking trails, and some interesting rock formations you can climb. There are also a good number of letterboxes scattered around including (shameless plug) one of mine a short stroll from the Botanical Garden parking lot.

Thanks, I seem to have spent a lot of time in Papago Park since starting my research. Saw your Century Plant box and have it prioritized. Looks like the race course takes us through or near the park as well. Wonder if I'll lose a lot of time if I stop to nab a box during the race :-)

Sorry I'll miss you. Maybe you'll have time to plant yet another.

Are you collecting rock n roll events? Best wishes on your run. I had to give it us when a freak fall took out my knee. Cycling now and nearly permanently located in Tucson.

Not collecting Rock n Roll events. Did the one in Virginia Beach because well I live here. Was going to go to Disney in January but we've been there a few times so I used Rock n Roll as my travel guide. We wanted to go somewhere in January and Phoenix had a race going on. We've never been there so we opted to run and tour.

I'm 70 now and I worry about my bones too. Really starting to like the races that I do every other month sort of. After Phoenix it's back home for the Shamrock Half-Marathon in March than on to Indy for the Indy 500 half-marathon in May. Nothing planned after that.

We only have one day (Thursday) planned in Tucson (looks like a two hour drive from Tempe) and will be spending a lot of time touring the boneyard. If you're in town and want to do late lunch or an evening coffee or something let me know.

The monsoons this summer re-routed the Santa Cruz River and made access to this box difficult. New location is a stroll from a new parking location between Tubac and Tumacacori.

As previously posted, BBStacker and Cootie Queen will be visiting Arizona in January. If you are available on January 17th please sign up for the event and come meet them in the Tempe area. When I have a better idea of how many will be coming the exact location will be determined. Wishing all of you a very happy holiday season.

Just want to thank our new letterbox buddy for hosting a very nice and fun-filled meet n greet for us in Tempe yesterday. Cootie Queen and I really enjoyed the company, the conversation, and the ink. And meeting a few new boxers is always,a pleasure.

I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this before, but I’m flying into Phoenix this Saturday if anyone wants to meet up or go boxing. I have about 6 hours to kill on Saturday starting around 11am as long as nothing weird goes wrong with my flight. Message me if you’re interested. Thanks!

Disney Cars themed boxes on Route 66
Board: State: Arizona
Mar 20, 2019 9:58am
Thread
Hi everyone! I'm heading to AZ this June (yes, I know it will be hot) and will be traveling Route 66 between Kingman and Holbrook AZ.

Are there any Cars themed boxes on that stretch of road? Also, if I were to plant a Cars series that would take you from Kingman to Holbrook, all drive bys, would they be quick to go missing if I hide them on the side of the road in pull-offs, and then hide in the rocks? I've never planted in AZ, and only found one box so far in AZ, so I'm not used to planting in the desert. Also, we'll see if my family would actually allow me to plant 15 or so boxes on that stretch of road without killing me.....

Thoughts?

I have no input to help you. That said, as a Disney fan and someone fascinated by Route 66, this seems like it would be a neat series for finders!
