Where are we Today ?
Now yesterday we arrived at Pilot Knob resort, a nice full service resort and our membership price for this is $10.00 a night full hookups. We choose just 4 nights here, before heading back to the desert at Quartzsite and dry camping for a few more weeks. So this morning we use the electric coffee maker, and little electric heater to take the chill off. And while we have full hookups we will do laundry and use our slow cooker to cook a nice roast beef that we had in the freezer.
It did not work the way I had planned. We had our coffees and computing the I put the roast in the slow cooker and all set to go for the day right? We have the electricity lets use it. Well all of a sudden our electric heater fan stopped for what I thought was no reason. I checked our voltage meter to find it about 90 volts, not good. So we shut off our breaker to protect the system. Apparently a transformer had blown and half the park lost most if its power. So Suzie went to check with our friends Rick and Suzy, they had full power so she took the slow cooker over to their house for now.
While we are here its a good time to catch up on laundry, but I find out Suzie wants to do sheets, blankets, sweaters etc... Most resorts have small laundry rooms and you are asked to use no more than two machines at a time. Now with the power out the well pump does not work so the laundry room is closed. Load the laundry in the car to Yuma Arizona (10 minutes away) to the 8th st Laundromat where I got all six loads done in 70 minutes while reading my book, good deal. Stop at Albertsons for a few groceries on sale and stock up our freezer.
Now back home can walkabout chat with neighbors, check out the park some more and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air.
