A STOP ALONG THE WAY

Love watching these things flying around in the sky.  Sure would like to be up there !

01

During my time at the Pilot Knob LTVA I decided to ‘test’ my tanks.  I know I can go three weeks before I have to deal with them – but perhaps I could go longer ??

At 26 Days I decided not to push it any further – but I could have.  I still had fresh water left and there was absolutely no signs of the other two tanks backing up.

There’s certainly an advantage with having a larger rig = larger holding tanks.

AND I don’t feel like I ‘conserve’ a whole lot.  I think the conserving methods I’ve implemented have just become a way of life for me now and therefore ‘normal’.  I (almost) never go longer than 2 days without having a full shower.

I decided to stop at Imperial Dam on my way to Quartzsite for two reasons.  The facilities there are much better than Q if for no other reason than there are more of them and therefore seldom any line-ups.

Also because BARBARA and JEANNE were there so I would get to spend a little quiet time with them.

Bennie & Katie getting re-acquainted – some uncertainty there !  LOL

Barbara set this up but Bennie was NOT happy !

Then Jeanne added hers to it to make it much bigger.  We put the ‘kids’ in the ‘playpen’ so the adults could relax and chat.

05

The three of us had a nice visit and then retreated to our own homes.  I moseyed on the following day knowing I would see these Folks again in Q.

LIN’S BUFFETT

Well I’ve been in Quartzsite two weeks already and STILL haven’t finished blogging about when I was in Yuma !!

While in Yuma you simply HAVE to go to Lin’s Buffett for the best Chinese food ever !  And the selection is like nowhere else I’ve seen.

A couple of other friends were in the general area that I was so we all decided to go to Lin’s.

Nobody left there hungry that’s for sure.  Plus it was so nice getting to know these folks a little bit better.  We all pretty much only see each other once a year so this small gathering was very special.
