Overflow Camping

We left our campsite in the White Tank Mountains this morning to flee across the metropolis of the Greater Phoenix Area, from the western edge to the eastern edge, to Usery Mountain Regional Park. Our greatest hope was for good cell service for Internet service. which is the only criticism we had of the White Tank Mountains.  We stopped in Mesa for laundry, lunch, groceries and diesel. However when we arrived at Usery we found they were full.  They did not have a site available until tomorrow, but they would allow us to camp in the overflow lot for the reduced rate of $12. Of course to guarantee the site for tomorrow we would need to pay the $8 reservation fee on top of the $30 campsite fee.  Actually we were just fine with all that, because we are "self-contained", and we have adequate water and electricity for several days, and our two day total is ten dollars less. We are just relieved to have a quiet spot to put down after escaping the madness of Phoenix. and most important, we have excellent cell service to allow us to continue our life on the Internet.
