         Now this is much better weather here in the desert. Slept later this morning until almost 6 am felt like I missed part of the day! So quick email checks and when the sun came up I was to for a nice desert walkabout.
sunrise over the mountains
love the quiet mornings
    I took Gerry for a tour about town this morning and gave him a few tips, we did manage to pick up some needed items as well.
   Made a light lunch for us and took a short drive around this desert area. So many different sights to see.
this guy had 15 solar panels on a trailer
behind his coach now that is a lot
of power, not counting the money
invested.
     Another wonderful sunny afternoon, temp got to 60f but with the sun and no wind was wonderful, shorts, t-shirts and sandals was more than welcome.
love the desert views where we are
enjoying the warm sunshine
and our e-readers
      Then about 3:30 Gerry, Melinda and Tucker came by to Happy Hour. We chatted and discussed this amazing lifestyle they are experiencing and enjoyed their company.
Doggie fix for Susie
Tucker loves Suzie
Happy hour snacks
and some treats for
Tucker too.
         While we chatted our 5 lb chicken cooked away on our Weber Q 100 just smelling wonderful. Low and slow is the trick. By 5 pm it was done so I whipped up a salad too go with it and we had a feast. Lotsa leftovers plus and pot of chicken soup in the makings tomorrow as well. For the recipe click HERE or my recipe blog to right sidebar.
done to perfection
tender and juicy inside
crispy skin
we do love our chicken
        Just another one of many desert days here in the south west desert. Enjoying the warm sunshine, no humidity, no bugs, no crowds and no traffic. And spending time with friends.
       Thanks again for joining us here and if you are around send us a message and look us up.

  1. So looking forward to relaxing in the desert.
    If you look real close at the picture with all 15 solar panels on the trailer there are more lying flat on top of the RV.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. I was just mentioning the trailer, most everyone has solar panels in their roofs here

  2. Hey George! It looks like sometimes you use your grill mat for chicken and sometimes you don't. If this is the case, I wouldn't mind knowing a little more about the rationale there. Then I won't have to experiment!

    1. Mike I use the grill mat for boneless skinless chicken so it does not dry out, and whole chicken I want the fat to drip away and the skin to get crispy so no mat.

  3. The solar panels are not the only unique thing about the boon docker. Did you also notice he has a residential air conditioner in the window.

    1. Yes I noticed that as well, maybe he can run that with all his solar power.

  6. Nice rig for the solar panels. If I had one with the panels plus a 500 gal each, water and sewer tank, I could maybe boondock with my crew for a week or two.

    1. We get buy with 2 solar panels, 75 gallons of water and 90 gallons sewage for 2 weeks, but it takes some conserving. We love it though and is worth it for us.

  8. Okay now I'm getting excited about moving to the Quartzsite area. I'm been in Mesa. Az for a month and a half. I wish I could afford even half of that solar setup. I get by on a 120 watt solar panel.

  9. We do love spending time at LaPosa South. It is nice being out in the desert but still having the option to use the dump station, water, and get rid of the garbage. We are hoping to be heading West in January.
