Colder morning but a wonderful warm sunny day. Welding done and ready to hit the road in the morning.

Where are we today ?
 clic a pic to enlarge it
       Clear cloudless skies over night allowed for the unseasonably cold weather to settle in again overnight. It was 32F at 4:30 this morning, and our blue flame heater warmed us up very nicely. As the sun was rising to warm up the day, it was only 33F, Again too chilly for my liking for an early walkabout.  
           No problem though we have an appointment at RV lifestyles to get the welding done on our heat shield. At 9 am we secured the coach and I head-on over there . Suzie took the car to the library in town using their free very fast wifi to get some updates on her devices and do some research.
    Appointment at Rv lifestyles was for 10 am and I pulled the coach in at 1o:20 This wonderful welder (same guy as last year, welded the broken support  solid and reinforced the other support, straightened the heat shield and painted the welds so they don't rust, done in 30 minutes, Total cost was $50.00 a good deal they always treat us fairly here.
love coming here for service
    They also repair and service atvs and sand rails here, a couple out back reading to go once again.
           They pulled this trailer below out with a fork lift and made room for our coach.
in no time our welding was taken care of
       Our welding almost done the Ken and Shirley arrived to get their welding done, chatted with Ken for a bit then headed home to meet with Suzie again.          
       Headed back to home dirt stopped at the dump station to dump our sewage a top up our fresh water. So we will be good for another 10/12 days. Suzie was there waiting and we quickly got set up again, then a light tasty lunch.
     Then I whipped into town for a few groceries, fill our RO water jug and back home to relax in this lovely very warm sunshine out of the wind, our coach blocks it well when it comes from the right direction and it did.
gotta love these blue Arizona skies
my new chair, love it!
      Checked our tires, oil and secured our solar panel for travel tomorrow.
solar Panel secured now our smaller fun group still here
Tom and Deb on the left, Ken and Shirley on the right
not many rigs around so nice and quiet here
         3 PM our last happy hour together with our friends for this trip. Sharing more stories and tips.
LR : Suzie, Ken, Shirley, Deb and Tom
and my empty new chair
           We headed home just after 5 pm to whip up supper, another treat we have not had for a very long time. Hamburger Helper but this was made with ground turkey and our almond milk.
          It actually turned out pretty good and enough for another meal.
used ground turkey instead of beef
    This was cooked inside and while it did its thing we enjoyed another wonderful desert sunset .
our last night here was wonderful as usual
this did the trick tonight for another tasty inside supper
        Got the things we wanted to do today done. Welding done, heat shield in place. our last Happy hour with good friends for this visit and can finally be on the road in the morning. Heading a bit further west into California for a while, just because we can.
        Hope y'all had great winter day and want to thank you for taking the time to drop in and check us out.
