Eclipse, dump, fill, fill, fill, repair done and a new free campsite.

Where are we today ?

          Got up extra early this morning the night time was so bright almost daylight at 3 am. After a bit I was outside attempting to get some pictures of this eclipse, and managed a few, not bad but not great,
   Then as the sunrise we were getting ready to de-camp.
     Then a nice sunrise as we secured our coach to make our exit at 7:40 am. After saying see ya later to our friends. Tom , Deb, Patsy and Bill. First stop the dumpstation to dump our sewage after 15 days here it was necessary and no line top at all ! Then pulled a head  to fill our fresh water tank.
heading on out from our wonderful spot with friends
no line up at the dump station 7:50 am !
       Next into town at the 76 gas station on the corner to fill our propane, and down the road to the Pilot to top up our gas tank and then to Rv Lifestyles for 9 am to have a broken weld repaired, supportng under out propane tank and spare tire. I pulled the coach into the bay and Erin checked it out and said he would call us when done. In the waiting room 25 minutes later we were called, all done ! Wow that was quick , bracket in place welded, a gusset support added and painted. The damage only 50 bucks !  Now that is service. We have been here many times in the past and are always pleased with their prompt service and friendly staff.
these guys are wonderful
much better than before
right there behind out spare tire and propane tank
        We are waiting for Suzie's package to arrive. All set up again with the dish, awning out and sunscreen out. That was a busy morning, (total 5 miles drive today) now we can enjoy this very beautiful spot no near neighbours , quiet and new scenery.    
and we even have shade trees!
love this view while we can enjoy reading in the shade
these are cactus are not to far from us, nice scenery
       A quiet Happy hour today, just the 2 of us, but this is more the norm for us. Miss our friends but am sure we will see them again on down the road again.
        Soon time for supper so I fired up our Weber Q to grill a couple of turkey burgers. And heated up the last of our KD  (macaroni)  to go along with it.
grilled Turkey Burgers and
 English muffins warming up
another tasty supper
      Then another desert sunset here a bit earlier with mountains to the west of us.
not colourful but still nice
sun setting on the mountains to the east as well
     Loving this free area and will be here for a a bit. Not sure how long or where we are going next, so many choices. Nice that we can do this when living this lifestyle. No reservations and nowhere we need to be for a while. Wherever we feel like going in a few days, Maybe west, maybe south, east or north. Hmm decisions !
     That was our productive day , got things done and enjoying another wonderful desert campsite. Then relaxing, We are good at that !
     Thanks for taking the time to check us out and hope y'all had a great day too!

      Was asked for the recipe for the  Beer Margaritas Deb made for us yesterday. Thanks Patsy for posting this for me to share and added it to my recipe blog. For the recipe click HERE  or my recipe blog top right side bar .

    1. Your welcome Doug.
      No need to go far to enjoy a nice new campsite. In the southwest.
      Rv Lifestyles is a good place to go for rv parts and service when in this area.

  9. A weld so near the propane tank seems a bit scary, but I guess it's not too much of a big deal. Glad you got that taken care of. Enjoy the perfect weather, we will too albeit vicariously through your writing...
