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.

Misunderstood, Checking Permits, Laundry In Blythe and Hidden Benefit.

Our Location today is at the La Posa South, LTVA, Quartzsite, Arizona.

We must have been more tired than we thought because for a second morning in a row we slept past 8:00. Breakfast was our usual with Coffee/Tea enjoyed at the Computers. After checking the Blogs we follow we were surprised that a Comment that Kathy had left was misinterpreted especially since she only wrote what we both had heard others say in public. We also attempted to read our E-mails and even though they eventually opened they were still slow. Looking outside at the beautiful blue sky we were eventually able to muster ourselves enough to start our chores.
Two RVs remain from the Fifty Fulltiming Families group.
Today was laundry day so I started by stripping the Bed then hauling the Hamper downstairs to start sorting. I’d barely finished that when Kathy announced that lunch was ready. Trying something different she made a couple of Chicken/Bacon Cheese Lettuce Wraps but this time she grilled them in the Frying Pan. She also made some Chicken Noodle Soup to go with it. It was wonderful! It completely changes the taste.
After loading up the Laundry in the Truck and the Trash in the Box we headed towards the Bins to get rid of it. There were lots of empty spaces compared to yesterday. The area next to our neighbour Ken that last week contained Fifty RVs that called themselves the Fulltiming Families now only had Two left in the area.
The Maintenance Workers were at the Waste Disposal Area and most of the Bins were empty. They are finally checking to see if you have stickers on your vehicles before you can dispose of your Trash as well as emptying your Waste.
We weren’t surprised when we saw the parking lot at the Main Street Restaurant/Laundromat packed with lots of people standing outside. A simple word was exchanged between us and we were soon heading west up I-10.
Identical Prices.
Our destination was the Laundromat in Blythe. I figured that most people would be working so we’d have no problem getting Machines and I was right. Most of the people in Quartzsite are retirees. By the time we finished folding everything the place was starting to fill up. When we walked outside the Sky looked as if we were about to have a storm any minute.
According to our watches even though we were in California it was still nearly 4:30 Arizona time. We headed over to McDonald’s where Kathy enjoyed a Salad but I chose their Bacon Mushroom Single Burger and really liked it.
From there we drove to Smart and Final where Kathy picked up a few things while I got Two Boxes of Cereal. When you buy Cereal at Walmart here in the US the boxes that say Family Size are a quarter of the Family Size Boxes we have in Ontario. The Cereal Boxes that Smart and Final sell are the same size we get back at home for the same price that Walmart sells theirs.
Ever since we had the problems with our Truck we have driven well out of our way to let the Regen get more run time to clean the Diesel Particulate Filter. The last time we did that was in Parker when we went to the movies. Today we had barely gotten on I-10 to head back to Quartzsite today when it started. The Truck ran smoothly but we still had to drive past La Posa South LTVA before it was completely finished. There was an hidden benefit though. We pulled off near the Roadrunner BLM and were able to get a picture of the Sun as it tried to sneak from behind the Heavy Clouds so it could set behind the Mountains.
The Sun slipped behind lighter Clouds.
Back at Home Kathy put away the groceries while I put fresh sheets on the Bed before we worked together to put away our Laundry. Tomorrow we hope to accomplish things around the Trailer. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

You Might Be a Redneck If

You eat Hamburger Helper without the hamburger.


  1. It's nice to have the place almost to yourself.

  2. Got a lot of things done yesterday! Great sunset pictures you got there! Sounds like a lot of rigs have been pulling out the last couple of days.

  3. I wondered if those families had pulled out yet.
    Now you have more privacy and peace. :)

  4. Nice to hear it is quieter in your area.
    Always feels good to get home after a day of errands.

  5. We knew Quartzite was emptying out, because they are all now here! Those fuel prices are ouch. So much less in Yuma.

  6. So much quieter now that the Big show is over! But, still, laundry and mail pickup in Blythe is the way to go!

  7. Pretty sun set. Boy those gas prices are high!
