Not a govt program but look up Brad Lancaster. I took a class with him once at UofA. He builds rainwater harvesting systems and has worked with the city on a lot of stuff improving neighborhoods to be more sustainable. My class did a tour of his little eco home around university that runs 100% off rainwater and solar year-round. Guy had a rainwater shower and a full washing machine in his front yard that ran off into the garden haha.

I still refer back to the textbook from class, amazing resource

I was rather surprised how comfortable mine is. It has certainly been better than the mattress it replaces.

FYI, one of the reasons that memory foam mattresses can be so cheap is that they ship compressed into a roll about 16 inches in diameter.

Example mattress

'Sporting Houses' and saloons galore. Conveniently close to the Mexican Army barracks.

Tucson must have been a pretty wild place in those times. I'd love to have a good print of this.

Edit: So I wanted to know more about George Hand, the maker of this map. Apparently he kept a detailed daily journal which ended up being many volumes in length. The contents have been microfilmed. Based on those diaries is this book:


I really want to read it, but $46.00 seems a bit steep.

I found a couple more references, will post them here for historical purposes. If Tucson really was the first, then that is truly noteworthy.

1 - Another newspaper article.

2 - Yet another article.

3 - A photo from the local paper.

4 - 2015 Obituary for one of the owners.

5 - Pat McGee the skater who was there for the grand opening, still living.

6 - This book here also mentions the park and its owners and has the wrong address of 2169 E Speedway.

It would be interesting to hear from anyone who remembers this place and might have some more pictures. I wonder how long it was in business.

The best book about how to lift in my opinion.

The New Rules

You may be able to borrow it from the library.

Forager here. One of my most rewarding hobbies, starting with several years of "Arizona" units in school where we learned about mesquite flour, using nopal fruits, and how to get by if you get lost in the desert; the great Willy Whitefeather (https://www.amazon.com/Willy-Whitefeathers-Outdoor-Survival-Handbook/dp/0943173477) even paid us a visit. I'm out of practice in the Sonoran Desert, but have picked up John Slattery's book to get reacquainted: https://www.amazon.com/Southwest-Foraging-Flavorful-Edibles-Regional/dp/1604696508

I bought Tucson: The Life and Times of an American City when I first moved here and it's a really good read.

u/theletterV · 2 pointsr/Tucson


That's a decent place to start for local trails. There's also a good book that you can find at any recreation store around here: http://www.amazon.com/Tucson-Hiking-Guide-Pruett-Series/dp/product-description/0871089661

It's a wild story and ultimately, Michael Madsen (aka Mr. Blonde) helped my movie get distribution and in front of the audience. It's also available here on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07R6YJ1RP

I got this on Kindle . . . I ended up having to read it on an ipad instead of kindle though because it has a lot of pictures.

I went up some of the coronado mountains (the entry way was near Nogales) and I somehow ended up navigating to the 83 in a PT Cruiser. So maybe I can try the Ruby Path.

Maybe I should start Geocaching so I have a better reason to go to these places.

I mean, there's even a helpful book on the subject.

Food, cactus, a passport in 1 day (I think we are one of the few cities that do that).

How about music, we have some of that. Either some indie band or uh... Linda Ronstadt's Mariachi album.


Some kind of art or print downtown.

Really I associate Tucson so much with Food and the outdoors, I really don't know what we make that is unique that isn't an art of some sort. I mean you could go to one of the many engineering shops near Raytheon and try to buy the tip of a missile, but it will be more than 20 bucks and probably some kind of security issue.

There is a Dr. in town who wrote a book about self pay medicine.

I have not yet read the book (intend on doing so) and I have not been to his practice. I have no idea if he is cheap or not.

I do long runs up there and camp nearly every weekend... I just bring a solar shower and put it on my dashboard or hood of my car, hose off afterwards... It's one of these, you can get them at Miller Surplus for 10 bucks or something: http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-2000014865-5-Gallon-Solar-Shower/dp/B0009PUT20

Edit: forgot to mention, there's also an ice cold spring just down the way from the Mt. Lemmon fire lookout. Take the Mt. Lemmon trail west from summit, stay R/straight at fork for Lookout trail, you'll see a metal building on your right, pipe sticking out of the hillside offtrail to the left -- flows hard year around. Maybe .2 miles total from parking area.

I have the same problem with the low humidity: asthma, allergies, nose bleeds. We don't have a whole house humidifier so I use a combination of a Honeywell console humidifier and a Mabis Steam Inhaler. I keep them in whatever room I'm in.

They will go bad quickly with tap water so I bought a tabletop distiller. I put the water through a Brita filter first, then I distill it, and I use that in the humidifiers.

I use a little EVOO in my nostrils, especially at night.

Some of us just don't do well with low humidity. It's an ongoing battle.
