It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Cozy Comfortable, Getting Rain, Visiting Fellow Bloggers, Stopping at Silly Al’s and Cold Winds.

Our Location today is La Posa South L.T.V.A., Quartzsite, Arizona, U.S.A.

When the temperatures started dropping last night we really appreciated the warmth that we were getting from our Blue Flame Heater. When it was finally time to go to bed I simply turned it down to the Pilot setting so it would be much easier to turn on the morning. 

It felt wonderful going to bed and no longer trying to work out in my mind why the Propane Line just wasn’t going where I needed it to. Who would have known that there was another Cavity that could not be seen from the underside of the RV. I was so relaxed that the next time I opened my eyes the Sun was peeking around the edges of the Window Shades. 

Making my way to the living area I was surprised that it didn’t quite feel as cold as the previous two mornings. After opening the Window Shades and getting things ready for breakfast I then turned the Heater on to its lowest setting and immediately started to feel additional warmth. I barely had the chance to check The Weather Network before Kathy started coming downstairs but did know that it was already in the Mid-Forties at that time.

It felt nice to enjoy our morning reading on the Computers and not having to run the Furnace for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that RV Furnaces exhaust more heat outside the Trailer then they do inside so we are now using less Propane with the Heater. The second reason was the Furnace Fan uses a lot of 12 Volt Power and with the sky already filled with Heavy Clouds this morning it meant that our Solar Panels would be struggling to charge our Batteries. With the Blue Flame Heater there is no fan and simply heats the area around itself but heat does rise and since we have it set up in the Living Area the heat makes its way upstairs. 
Our Daytime High today.
We had an early lunch so that we could wash the dishes and clean up the kitchen before heading out. After shutting the Heater down to Pilot again I put things in the Truck then headed back inside to report to Kathy that it was raining outside. She thought that I was pulling her leg until she saw it on the Truck itself. With all the Dust on the Windows it looked like smeared Mud when I tried to clean the Windshield. 
Sue and Lorne Green (A Place Called Away.)
It was minutes before 1:00 when we drove into La Posa West. Remembering directions that we had been given on Wednesday we were soon pulling up behind a Motorhome affectionately called the Ponderosa. Just walking out the door as we arrived was Lorne from the Blog APlace Called Away. His instructions couldn’t have been better. With the cold Wind blowing he informed us that they were just about to break camp and head over to Dome Rock Road for a few days. Sue had been busy inside and came out to join the short visit. We both managed to get a couple of pictures today and after Lorne explained where they would be we promised to meet up for Happy Hour on Sunday. 

We needed some supplies and I wanted to walk so we headed first to Family Dollar where we managed to get a few things on our Shopping List. They still had lots of stock on carts that they were working on to put on their shelves. 

Having not gotten everything we needed there, we stopped at Roadrunner grocery store. There we managed to finish getting the remainder of our supplies. When we are in small stores like that we generally walk each aisle twice to make certain that we didn’t miss anything and to get additional walking in. 
Inside Silly Al's
With the increased Wind and dark Clouds even though it was early we knew we wouldn’t be able to use the Weber to cook anything outside so we decided to eat out. We headed over to Silly Al’s Restaurant. We went there a number of times last winter but only once this time back in December. We found that by ordering Side Salads and a Small Pizza it was more then filling without feeling bloated. 
Another beautiful Sunset.
We were Home in La Posa South LTVA shortly after 4:00 putting our groceries away and taking care of a few other things that needed tending. The Wind really picked up speed and with today’s Heavy Cloud Cover we had to run our generator for an hour to charge our Batteries. The overnight temps will feel like Freezing tonight but with our Blue Flame Heater we are keeping warm. With the Sun forecasted for tomorrow we hope to be out and about so we’ll have a few more interesting things to talk about. Thanks for following along, feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

Your television costs more than all of your other furniture combined.


  1. Glad you got the heater working. Lots of people I know have those in their rigs AND their homes!! Seems they work really well.

  2. Glad you can keep warm now without using so much propane. Its always good to finish up on a tough project.

  3. It was cold everywhere in the southwest yesterday. Hope it is short lived.

    Sounds like the Blue Flame is doing as advertised. That's great!

  4. Glad you can enjoy your Blue Flame now! We love Silly Al's it's yummy food! Great you have happy hour plans for Sunday!

  5. The heater is installed and working! Great. It was only 4 C in the trailer this morning at Lost Dutchman. We have a Buddy Heater but those Blue Flame heaters sure seem to be the one everyone likes.

  6. It will be nice to have a visit on Sunday. Stay warm!!
