Jan. 20th, Windows, books and our generator

Thanks for joining us in our journey of North America 
in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006

 Where are we Today ?

        Cool nights, hot days,(90f today), blue skies, dry air, friendly people and lots of fun. This morning after posting the blog I stopped at the store before the traffic got too heavy and then back to home dirt. Noticing the steady stream of rv's coming into town from all directions everyone looking for the perfect spot to park.
lotsa rv's !
        On the way back to I saw Craig from Reliable Auto Glass inside the entrance about to phone us on his cell phone. I stopped and showed him the way to our rig, (there is no designated roads, rows or campsites here). He was coming to check the double pane windows on our coach, a few of them are leaking, with moisture between the glass. We agreed to have three windows done, the two by our rear view mirrors, and the real bad one on the passenger side. This one was so bad he will need to have new glass cut and tempered so he took it first.

        Now a bite to eat and back to check out Tyson Wells again, looking for new vendors and new stuff. We can walk to there from home dirt so we don't have to worry about the huge traffic jams in this area.  The other day we checked out rows A to N today the rest of the alphabet. Well lotsa stuff to look at, might just find some stuff we just can't do without.
busy place
        All the sites and smells are wonderful, barbecues flaming, onions frying, appetizing looking foods of all sorts, thats why we had an early lunch before we came. We even ran into George and Elmer part of the crew we had supper with the other night at Silly Al's.
smells good
tables full

        Then we came down anther row and struck gold! Another huge tent advertising over 10,000 books and only $1.00 each if we bought 5 or more. So we checked a few shelves and picked up another 11 books, Suzie checking her spreadsheets for good ones. Don't want get too many today we have a long walk back to carry them, we will be back!
lotsa books

        So all happy with today's expedition, back to home dirt and I called Bob's Generator Service to check if our oil pressure switch had arrived by courier. Yep its 3 o'clock and it just came in so 10 minutes to secure our coach and away I go to have it installed. OOPPPS !! I forgot to disconnect the satellite dish and saw Suzie running (barefoot) and yelling at me to stop, 50 feet of cable trailing behind the coach. Luckily the cable end just came off the dish and it was very securely fastened to the ground. Got to Bob's and he managed to squeeze our quick repair in and I was back to home dirt by 4 o'clock. Hopefully an easy fix to a potentially big problem. Yes we can get all our rv problems solved right here in Quartzsite. Next repair to be done will be the welding of a broken generator support.

        We set up again, fired up our Weber, grabbed a cold beer and relaxed while our supper slowly cooked on the grill, tender, fall off the bone pork ribs, sauerkraut, baked potatoes and carrots.

        Then to windup a busy day with another awesome sunset!

  1. Wow, that supper with the ribs sure looks yummy.

  2. Q is the perfect place to be in January. Especially for an Rver. Good plan to be within walking distance, the traffic jams are huge.

    Great sunset shot.

  3. Wow, I can almost smell the food cooking on that grill!

  4. You will have to update on how your window sealing goes and what brand they are. We have Hehr dual pane and a couple of them are fogging and are trying to decide replace or reseal.

  5. Peter and Bea:



    We enjoy Quartzsite:

    Kevin and Ruth:

    No definitely NOT your kind of place.


    This summer for sure ok?

    Bob and Jo:

    I think a lots less expensive to have rebuilt.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
