Thanks for joining us in our journey of North America in our Holiday Rambler,
since August 2006
Where are we Today ?
Monday morning and getting ready to hit the road. Coffees, showers walkabout, jacks up, slide in sewage dumped and fresh water filled, hook up the car, say our goodbyes to Rick and Suzie and on the road at 8:45 am. Down the road to fill with propane, hmm no luck 15- 20 minute wait, so we carry on across the state line to a gas station in Arizona to fuel up our coach $3:37 a gallon ($3:79 in California).

Now make our way along hwy 95 north past the Yuma proving Grounds with their huge guns marking the entrance, a border patrol check point, a roller coaster ride thru the dips in the road. Its a lot cheaper to put a dip in the road, than a bridge for when the occasional flash flood happens.

Shortly after 10 am we arrived in Quartzsite and our first stop is Discount Solar where we purchased our system in 2007, to have our system checked out. A very busy place at this time of year, but we got lucky, one on the installers was waiting for his next installation so he came out and checked us right away. Checked everything over and tightened a few connections, a new ground wire and looks like it will work properly once again. No charge, excellent customer service. From here down the street to the Jerky Store for propane an easy drive thru that takes credit cards.
Back over I-10 south for a 1/2 mile to La Posa west Long term visitor area. We searched and found the same piece of home dirt we had last year occupied so setup here with lotsa space.

Then a quick trip to the store for fresh milk, rollout our patio mat chat with a couple neighbors and found Al and Cathy here again this year is the same spot as well. Also right behind us a neighbor came by to chat and it was Jay from Missouri who we met here our first year in Quartzite 2007 and have not seen since, such a small world. Now to relax in the sun with a nice breeze and our books for a while was nice with the clear blue skies. Until time to fire up our Weber and cook a whole chicken to perfection with baked potatoes, and cauliflower for a yummy supper.
Now supper done we can read and watch a bit of tv before calling it a night.
Thanks for stopping by.
