    Looking for people from socal that want to go to Tucson before it gets too cold and everything goes dormant. I'm located

    I have a house in Oro Valley we can stay at, plenty of room.



    I cannot pay for gas, or food, all i can offer is a free place to stay during this time. I don’t have a car so I need someone that drives.



    Here are some of the critters we may see- those that occur above the desert in the mountains are marked with ***



    Hogna carolinensis- common in Oro valley!

    Olios giganteus- best place in the USA for Olios!

    Trechalea gertschi- Along the Gila river and its drainages

    Aphonopelma chalcodes and several dwarves





    ***Chrysina beyeri/gloriosa close to mountains***

    Hemiphileurus illatus

    ***Strategus aloeus***

    ***Dynastes granti***





    vinegaroons, whipspiders, all sorts of cool stuff not found in california.
