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.

No Luck Finding George, Hi Jolly Monument, Silly Al’s Pizza. and Cold Winds.

Our Location today is Quartzsite, Arizona, U.S.A. 

With the night time temperatures forecasted to be the same as the last few nights we simply ran the Electric Fireplace and covered ourselves under the New Flannel Bed Sheets hoping to stay warm last night. We managed not only to stay warm but by the middle of the night we were actually to warm causing us to shed the top Bed Cover. Within a few more hours the Bed Cover was once again needed. We’ll be shutting the heater off before going to bed tonight. 
We were both up having breakfast by 8:00 MST this morning when we discussed what we needed and wanted to do today. While Kathy did her morning reading I did my morning chores and got ready to go out. While I did my morning reading Kathy was getting herself ready to go out exploring. It wasn’t long after 9:00 MST that we were on our way to town. 
Our first stop this morning was Discount Solar on East Main Street in Quartzsite. I had ordered a Sixty Ampere Charge Controller and Digital Display from Mike the first week that we were in Deming, New Mexico. True to his word he had put it aside for me to pick up. He also thanked me for sticking to my word about when I would be in to pick it up. We saw a number of other things that we’ll be interested in after I finish assembling what I have already accumulated. 
Same RV George saw the other day.
The next thing on our agenda was to just drop in to say hello with George and Suzie from Our Awesome Travels. We found the road into La Posa South LTVA and slowly made our way keeping a sharp eye peeled for their Motor Home. We made our way through many dry washes nearly reaching the mountain range behind the LTVA. We slowly drove back making certain that we saw all the RVs in the area. We knew we were in the right area when we drove by the RV that George had pointed out as having so many Solar Panels attached in their Blog the other day. 
Back in Quartzsite we drove throughout many of the neighbourhoods making certain that we didn’t miss anything. We checked out the Road Runner Market and were amazed at their selection of not only Dry and Canned Foods but their Produce and Meat Selection as well. 
We also saw the Hi Jolly Monument and Cemetery. Having read many RV Blogs that had documented their stops there, we were curious to see it in person ourselves. It was a mixture of Old Weather Worn Wooden Markers from the mid-Eighteen Hundreds, that had Historic tags explaining who was interred on the spot probably verified by the town records, to more modern markers with burials as late as the End of the last Millennium. 
With the Cold North Wind chilling us through there was one more place we wanted to see today. This place has been advertised on many blogs and we have already had commenters telling us not to miss Silly Al’s Pizza. Looking at it from the outside this is a small place but when you go inside it’s Huge. Everyone raves how delicious the pizza is and we thought we’d find out for ourselves. The place is spotlessly clean and even the restrooms are cleaner than some Five Star Hotels. The pizza made the top of our list and we had plenty to bring home for Supper. 
Back at Home Kathy did some bookkeeping while I managed to get a few minor repairs done on the truck and some organizing in the basement. 
According to the Weather Guessers there is a Cold Front that is bringing lots of that Northerly Weather down to the Quartzsite area. We are looking forward to feeling the Warm Southerly Breezes. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.

Employee Evaluation 

"This employee is really not so much of a has-been, but more of a definite won't be."


  1. Sounds like your first day at the Q was a success. Enjoy.

  2. Thought we saw you drive by here about 11 am we are just north of that trailer with the solar one wash.
    We like to block the wind with our rv and enjoy the warm sunshine and found it quite comfortable.

  3. I keep forgetting to mention, your new 5th wheel looks really nice.
    Sounds like you drove out to spot Tom and I like to park when we stay at LaPosa South...we park just before the sign that reads: no overnight camping past this point.
    We do like Silly Al's Pizza. Enjoy your time.
