Where are we today

       What a great night for sleeping. Cool desert night, warm comforter on the bed and windows open , 28 f at 5 am  and just fired up our Mr Heater for a bit then toasty warm. Even better when the sun came up then got comfortably hot in the shade. 86f by 1 pm, awesome !
wonderful sunrise right out from our kitchen table
      Walked about this park for a while and got a couple miles in just enjoying the weather and sunshine.
not sure what this is but kinda cool
     I took a short drive around the area just checking out the local area, down the road a couple miles to the edge of town Huachuca City then back home, fuelled up the car for a good price around here $2.22 a gallon.
interesting info about the area.
we will check out some more before we leave
can't see the scrapes with the compartment closed
     I had a couple of minor repairs to take care of this morning. 1st our one rear compartment door that has scraped the ground a few times, because of the low clearance we have. The aluminium trim has come loose again, the light pop rivets gave away. No problem drilled them out and installed some much heavier ones. Should do for a while. until we bottom out again, This can happen even just pulling into a service station.
drilled out the 1/8th rivets and installed 3/16 heavier rivets,
should do the trick?
     Next was to install the new water pump we picked up yesterday. The old one has been giving us issues, cycling and not working some times, bad connection to the pressure switch etc. And because we do a lot of boon docking year round we want it to be reliable. We now have 2 spare pumps that still actually work and we can use them for other functions as well, or use if we are stuck. Like filling our fresh water when boon docking etc...
old one on the left, new one on the right
new technology should be better
still no leaks detected
all installed in 1/2 an hour and seems to be doing well, maybe?
so far so good
     A wonderful warm afternoon 86f in the shade with a light breeze enjoying our e-readers. Another book done and new one started. Can't seem to put these books down.
      Supper tonight our last 2 smoked pork chops from the Quartzsite General store accompanied with a salad and the rest of our coleslaw from Junction Express yesterday and a garlic bun.
just a few minutes on the grill
does the trick
sure was tasty
       Another very warm comfortable day in the shade and got a few things done that needed doing.
       This park is a very nice place to hang out in, regular rate is $10.00 a night with full hookups plus electricity, sure can't beat that by much now can you. Wish there was more campgrounds like this. Because of our  AOR membership we only paid $9.00 a night even better.
       Thanks for stopping by and hope your day was a wonderful as ours was.

Where have we been this Winter

  2. As GoodTimesRollin mentions your mystery plant is a Century Plant. They look like giant asparagus before the bloom. Would like to spend some time in your area so keep the posts and ideas coming :)

  3. Tom and I have stayed at the Quail Ridge RV a couple of times it is gravel but always clean. It is nicely located for exploring the area. We have yet to get there but I believe there are two museums on the Army Post.

    1. That is why we head to the southwest, more affordable, no crowds, humidity, bugs, traffic and wide open spaces.

  10. It seems there is always something on the RV that needs fixing. Keeping the extra water pumps is a good thing. No sense in taking a chance.
