It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Exploring Imperial Dam LTVA and Something Going On.


Our Location today is Imperial Dam LTVA, California, U.S.A. 

Even with the wind blowing throughout the night and rattling our Slide Toppers we both slept like a couple of logs. It did feel good not hearing any vehicular traffic right outside our bedroom like we had the last couple of days at very early and late hours. I barely woke up before 8:00 PST this morning and got things ready to make breakfast before turning on my Computer. That seems to be the magic key that Kathy’s subconscious is listening for me to turn on my Computer and she instantly wakes right up. 
The winds we had last night had only slowed down a bit but this would still have been the perfect day for a Wind Generator as the Windsock was still holding itself Parallel to the Ground. We hadn’t had a chance to really look around the area yesterday so we thought that would be a great thing to do this morning. As soon as we’d finished our Morning Reading and Chores we headed out the door. 
Kathy suggested going further up the road from where we were parked. There were quite a number of occupied sites that we are sure they were chosen for their solitude because they were surrounded by Deep Washes and only room enough for a Single RV. We also ran across other spots that allowed for groups to gather similar to the old Wagon Trains as the Settlers made their way west. 
Ferguson Road
As we finally made our way back onto Ferguson Road it started twisting and turning its way further into our area when we came face to face with trucks towing their Fifth Wheels. This graded road barely fits two small vehicles so the only thing we could do was to ride our wheels high on the grading and both the trucks and trailers passed without any problems.

We continued until we were going through an area that looked like a Subdivision of old and new RVs and found ourselves in the area called Dog Patch. As we passed through a gate we were surprised to find ourselves back on a Paved Road. Looking around I spotted an old Water Tower we had seen as we were coming in yesterday. Turning around to go back in the Park on the paved road we managed to find a number of areas that we had not seen. The water in Senator Wash Reservoir was so beautiful from the high road looking down. Soon we turned around and drove back past the Camp Hosts Office on Mesa Road. 
Our exploring continued as we deliberately drove in the direction of more RVs that seemed to be parked much closer together. As we approached we new something was familiar and when we looked at the map we were shocked to see we were in the Florida Flats.

Finally heading back into Murphy Flats it wasn’t long and we were Home. It didn’t take long for Kathy to start making Toasted Chili and Cheese sandwiches for lunch and we got to finish off the Peach Cobbler that she picked up while at Walmart yesterday in Yuma.

After we’d cleaned our dishes Kathy who is still fighting a Sinus Infection needed to have a Snap and since the wind was still gusting to nearly Thirty MPH stirring up more dust and with 79 F (26 C) temperature there was no need for her to be outside. Even for myself trying to get any outside chores would have been difficult so I settled in to do some research on the computer. 
Around the middle of the afternoon a BLM Vehicle went speeding by on Ferguson Road looking like it was running a Baja Race. He disappeared from sight with his Lights Flashing but no Siren. Looking out the door the only thing you could see was the wall of dust that had been created. 
There's our Home and its Windsock.
For Supper Kathy made a Homemade Chicken Fettuccini and served the Strawberries that she had also picked up yesterday. As we finished eating it felt eerily strange when the wind suddenly stopped.

According to The Weather Network tomorrow will be a great day to get some things done around our Home. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.
