Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itOvercast again this morning but no problem a nice travel day not far just 155 miles so no real rush, Everything secured, car hooked up and away we went at 9 am our usual departure time when we have not far to go.
Headed east on I-8 out of the foothills and into Dome Valley. A nice route we have travelled many times before over the years. Not much traffic at all just overcast and no rain at all for our travels.

|through the town of Ajo love the churches here|
|and the town sqaure|
Now a mystery when we checked in the lady recognized us, from last fall. She said just after we left someone came in and asked for George and Suzie Yates, She did not remember who it was and we don't have a clue. Was it you?
All was good until we disconnected the car. Hmmm. water under our coach near the rear. A quick check and find out a fitting had broken off in out Wet Bay. It was really wet now ! I guess when I stowed our sewer hose it hit the firing that drains our fresh water tank. And now or 75 gallons fresh water was nadda !
Well we parked the coach had a bite for lunch then I investigated. Thought I had a spare fitting but guess I thought wrong.
|broke right off|
Back home hack saw out cut the pipes cleaned them up and tested the fit, looks good.
While I was filling the tank I noticed this white van not far away . Van emptied our and all her furniture outside even a large chair and bicycle. Gotta be that same woman that was across from us in La Posa South, and by Len and Brenda at Imperial Dam. Now this really is a small world !
Now parked again and all set up time to celebrate, After all it was 4 o'clock ! A new record for us a 3 hour travel day and 4 hour setup, but did manage to fix our water leak. Now our wet bay can dry out.
We did manage to sit for a bit get some reading in and enjoy the wide open spaces and quiet of this place that we have really come to love.
Soon time to whip up supper so I preheated our Weber Q made a tasty salad and grilled a couple of boneless skinless chicken thighs and some fresh asparagus.
Just as this was about ready what do we have? Sunshine finally and a nice colourful sunset. The skies were cloudy all day because we had a problem it was sad, then the sun came our to smile at us for getting the repairs done, Whadda think? Ok its my story and this is what I want to believe.
Now that was it for us today gonna hang out here for a week and just enjoy this area, just because we can.
|this was awkward but got it done|
|new fitting in place|

a good day to do repairs
|our view no rv's close and no highway noise|
|done on the grill mat keeps the chicken moist|

|the sunset shining on the hills behind us|
|What a nice way to end a bust day|
|155 miles a nice desert drive|
Thanks for dropping by today and hope you had a good day and did not need to make any repairs. Just part of the rv life. Think about it, driving your house all over the country on different roads, things are bound to break.
