More sun, more friends, more deals and more food.....

Where are we today ?

        Last day of the Big Tent RV show and some deals to be had if you look about. Our friends browsed a bit and got some freebies. Yesterday Rob went over to check the price of new Brake assemblies for their 5er. They were discounted even more so he picked 4 assemblies for the price of 3 down here. And about 1/2 what he would have paid back home. Saved about three hundred dollars.
awesome deal on the brakes
        I checked the window guys this morning and they were hoping to get here today to repair two of our foggy dual pane windows.
        So with  that in mind we headed right away to the dump station, (its been 9 days) just in case they took the windows. Cannot drive the coach if we can't see out the side windows and mirrors. They pretty busy but things should be slowing down soon.
line up at the dump station
      We were only 10th in line and it went pretty quick, to pack up, travel to the dump station and refill with water we were all set up again in 90 minutes.
17 rv's in line when we left
        This done Rob and Pat had friends drop by for a visit so we joined them for a while.
Doggie  fix for Suzie
they brought their two standard poodles with them
beautiful dogs.
        Their company left and about 3 pm we decided to order our last pizza this year from Silly Al's. Take out this time.
yummy garlic bread
and a meat lovers, with olive and jalapenos on half
         While driving about different areas noticed these old phone booths. Just like we have seen in many areas, non existent as most people have cell phones now.
no more pay phones
nice late evening sky, no colors tonight
so we made our own colors, a nice wood campfire,
first one in the desert this year
        Another fun day in the sun we had, time just flies on by.
        Thank ya'll for stopping on by for a visit again, hope all is well on your home front too.

  3. I'm thinking the vendors will probably start reducing their items too since the Big Tent for 2014 is now history. We hit the dump yesterday morning too but when we got there there was only one other rig ahead of us. It'll be interesting to drive around today and see if it looks like a lot of folks have left.

  8. Waiting in line for the dump ... interesting. I'm not sure I'm ready for boondocking but I'd still like to give it a try because it looks like fun.

    1. Not a big deal for us waiting in line to dump. We at home, read our books , kinda like going to the laundry. Read a book and it goes real quick. We love the boondockng no reservations and so much freedom.

  9. I remember those dump lines. Fortunately when we were in Q two years ago our MH was able to "hold it" until the lines went way down after the Big Show. But when we finally dumped, I swear I heard our MH say "Thank You". ;c)

    1. We are good for at least 10 days too, but the window guys are coming and we wanted to dump before our window we taken out. The lineup was not too bad, read a book and it goes quickly.
