HAPPY THANKS GIVING to our American Friends

      Well after a nice night in Casa Grande and a peaceful sunny Thanksgiving morning, watching Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade on tv, we are on the road about 10:15 am heading west thru Phoenix to Quartzsite AZ. Not a lot of traffic today being the holiday so it was a nice drive. We got to a rest area at 12 noon, perfect timing to stop and make lunch.

      Shortly after 1:00pm we spotted Quartzsite, just a small town with some vendors and lots a desert dry camping (no electric, water or sewer). The free areas are a mile or two from town, or we choose to get a permit ($20. a week, this includes access to water, sewage dump and garbage disposal) and are real close to some vendors etc... We could stay at one of the 70 rv parks in town too but this is more fun, less expensive, no reservations and so much room. When we got to the gate the office was closed for the holiday, so we just drove in and found a nice plot of desert dirt. We are self contained solar panel, generator, fresh water storage, sewage storage so why not take advantage of what we have, besides our campsite is huge, we have a couple of neighbours about 200 feet away. We set up satellite dish, then cleaned and tilted our solar panel, set out the patio mat and relaxed with a book in the desert quiet.

      Even our Mr. Heater is very efficient, it uses less propane and no electricity. And our very efficient L.E.D. reading lights.

      Once it cooled off we came inside to finish cooking our second Thanksgiving dinner. We get to celebrate two Thanksgivings every year( Canada & USA), just because of where we are, and because we have so much to be thankful for. A moist roasted turkey breast, gravy, cranberries, sweet potatoes, carrots and broccoli and a mini pecan pie for desert.

      Now we can relax watch some tv, in our desert home for the next couple of weeks.
