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.

Starting to Pack, More Neighbours, Meeting Up With Friends and Talk About Coincidence.

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

After a slightly restless night we still managed to be up shortly before 8:30 MST this morning. We had left the Blue Flame Heater on its lowest setting for the entire night so when we got up we simply put on our Housecoats and we were quite comfortable.

Once we finished breakfast we brought our Coffees over to the Computers where we got caught up on our reading. We also had another item that we needed to order through Amazon which was not a problem and it will be here next Wednesday. When I saw that it was all I could do to not scream because of the package that we ordered back in January that wouldn’t arrive before we leave so Amazon cancelled it. They have to come up with some kind standard for these kinds of things.

Since we’ll be leaving La Posa South sometime this weekend I was outside by 10:00 to start closing things up. I planned to pack away the Solar Powered LED String Lights along with the Antenna and Mast. Even though it was one of the least important things it was time consuming and it was on the roof where the Winds were supposed to increase this afternoon. As each String of Lights was unwrapped from the Mast they had to be folded and tied together every Two Feet in order to avoid having them come out as a big knotted mess. I had to start from the Bottom and work up to where the Solar Panels were attached to the top of the Ladder Rail. Once they were completed I was able to remove the upper section of the Antenna Mast where it was laid down making the process much easier.

I was just tying up the last of the Four Sets of Lights when Wayne came over to talk. He had seen me on the roof from his RV so came over to see what I was doing. He told me that after he and Sue got back from the Campfire last night and as they were getting ready for bed their trailer started shaking. It didn’t feel like an Earthquake so he looked outside just as a huge Diesel Pusher pulling a Towed within feet of their RV. Like we’ve said before there’s a lot of space out here but people are parking close to him.

When I came down from the roof it wasn’t long before he headed off saying he’d let me get back to “Work”. I told him to stop using Four Letter Words around here. Checking with Kathy she had sliced the Pork Roast we grilled yesterday to make some very tasty sandwiches. Kathy had been busy packing things away inside as well.

Back outside it was easy to take down the Antenna along with the Mast. Within minutes it was disassembled and stored for traveling but as I started to remove the Brackets attached to the Ladder the Bit fell out of the Screwdriver. I looked around for Fifteen Minutes and could not find it. Using another Screwdriver to finish the job I dropped the bolt and it landed Three Inches from the lost Screwdriver Bit. Thank You!

Then I had my second obstacle. To remove the Pegs that hold the Base in place I use a Claw Hammer and it was in the Toolbox buried in the middle of the Basement. Having to empty the basement was not part of the plan but it helped remind me where things were. Once everything was repacked in the Basement I called it a day because I needed to get washed up and change my clothes. It felt nice to relax for a few minutes as well.

We were out the door by 3:30 swinging by the garbage bins before heading in to Quartzsite where we had a dinner date scheduled at the local VFW. We were meeting Tom and Deb from Celebrating the Dance at 4:00. Since Tom is a Navy Veteran and I am a Canadian Legion Member we had no problems getting in for their Friday Night Fish Fry. We didn’t get much chance to visit so far this winter before Tom and Deb were moving down the road to their next adventure. But what is typical with RVers all our plans are written in Jell-O and before they knew it they were heading back this way as a stop over. 

It was as if they had never left and with reading one another’s Blogs we had plenty to talk about. The meal was delicious and we both helped the VFW’s Bottom Line by supporting their Raffles and enjoying some Adult Beverages. We still had lots to talk about so they followed us back to our site. 

We were talking about our upcoming Rally on Plomosa Road and it put a smile on Deb's face. Deb had been looking up something just the other day and came across her post of the first time we met them on Plomosa Road then went to the VFW for their Friday Night Fish Fry. The date was March 3, 2017 and here is the Link to our post of that day. A lot has happened in all our lives since then but it was a nice memory. 
Deb and Tom at our site.
We sat outside with only the Awning Light on deep in conversation. We even talked slightly about the difference between Canadian and US Politics which is something we normally avoid. It wasn’t until Kathy asked me to check “What’s happening over there?” that we looked at the time. Kathy had seen a light that turned out to be the Moon just coming over the Mountains to our east and it was nearly 9:00. That was like a cue for us to say “See you down the road” or at least next winter. We’ll be looking forward to that. 

Tomorrow we’ll be busy doing more packing and then we have to take a drive down the road to check something out. Thanks for following along, feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


The World's Great Proverbs

Nothing succeeds like success.


  1. It does indeed take a lot of time packing things away after sitting still for a while.

  2. Looks like the time has come to hit the road once again....Safe travels!

  3. Some items ordered from Amazon come directly from the manufacturer. In some instances by consolidated freight from China and then through snail mail, so it's out of anybody's hands. Just give in, maybe you are destined not have that item ;-)
    Hope everything else goes well.

  4. How nice you got to spend some time with Tom and Deb. Dinner looked delicious and to think it was almost exactly a year! Enjoy the Rally!

  5. It certainly was a nice evening with good food and great company. We were happy it all worked out for us to get together and spend time visiting. The time flew by with the lively conversation. Enjoy the Rally.
