List Members, Ive been lurking on the list for awhile now, and now that I have gotten most of my parts for my first telescope, I am almost ready to do some real observing. I reviewed some of the information on Tom's website [found at http://www.psiaz.com/polakis/azsites/azsites.html ]. There seems to be two decent sites in the Tucson area, one being the Empire Ranch and the other the newer TIMPA site. TIMPA is alot closer to me than Empire Ranch which appears to be way south of tucson (I live on the Northwest side). I have yet to go to either. MY question is about 2 sites. Sentinel and Vekol Ranch. According to Toms site it mentions "Very little traffic travels on Vekol Road". How are the roads to both sites? It will be mostly Highway to these sites, which is cool (and I love to drive) but my car can not handle dirt roads very well unless mantained nicely. Its a tiny Nissan Sentra and sits maybe 4 or so inches off the ground. If the roads are not all that great, how far would it be to park at the beggining of them and walk to the actuall observing site? Thanks for any info...
