Thanks very much for your Tucson suggestions. For posterity
and new-comers, here are the headlines from your advice.

  Time and place?

Hotels that meteorite folks favor:

  Inn Suites
  Vagabond http://www.vagabondinn.com/propdesc.asp?propID=421
  Executive Inn

Side trips:

  * Kartchner Caverns
  * Dave Schultz's yet-to-be-organized (?) meteorite hunting trip

Anne's summary strategy:

  "It is rather simple. First you explore the InnSuites, and
   you will find there a lot of meteorite dealers. Then you
   hang around the InnSuites, and if you hang around long
   enough you will see everybody else, because everybody ends
   up at the InnSuites eventually."

Hotels get booked several months in advance, so watch out.
Priceline (and similar outfits) might still have rooms available
at some of the bigger hotels.

Thanks again for the advice.

BTW, I was looking at partly clouldy skies over Austin, Texas
during the Leonids. Clouds cleared just as the show was over
(around 5:00 localtime). Still, the show was good.
