“I hope you guys are ready for an onslaught this year. I’m getting calls galore. A lot of them aren’t going to Texas or Florida. And I’m also getting calls from people who winter in Mexico now that said they’re not going back. So be ready. They’re coming,” Judy Lutes of the Arizona Winter Visitors Association said at the Sept. 12 meeting of the Focal Point and Tourism Committee.

  1. AZ tourist people are dreaming and passing inaccurate info. Many may show up there and end up in the desert with zero hookups.
    Campsites have been going away almost as fast as new units are being built. Anyone believe many of those sites lost to the storm will never be back but turn into homesites and condo land?
