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.

Ken Moved On Down The Road, TracFone Problem, Another Clean Up, Mud flaps Intalled.

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

Getting up at 7:30 this morning we really didn’t know just how much we were going to accomplish today. Kathy was already coming downstairs even before I had all the Window Shades raised. As we ate our breakfast we could see Ken outside doing some last minute packing.
Picture forwarded from Ken.
Kathy went to the Computers while I did my inside chores then I headed over to wish Kan Safe Travels one more time. He offered me a little advice on angling the Backup Camera. Even though Skelly had helped in the pretravel setup Ken insisted that he was doing the driving.

Being Canadian and needing Cell Phones in the US we always found TracFones very reliable. When our time approached for us to add more Time on the Phones they would E-Mail us a notification. Well that’s all changed. Now they send you a Text Message the day it’s about to expire. Since we leave our Phones inside when we are working outside and we Don’t Text we missed that message. I spent nearly an Hour on Kathy’s TracFone trying to get mine reactivated and still didn’t get it because their Computer does not recognize 82100 as an American Zip Code. In Canada our Postal Code is a combination of Alphabetical and Numerical Digits. Everyone’s Credit Cards are registered according to their Mailing Address so when we use our Canadian Credit Cards in the US we simply punch in the Three Numerical Digits followed by Two Zeros. TracFone’s Computer is now programmed to only accept Credit Cards with US Zip Codes. Now I’ll have to go buy a Pre-Paid Card at a commercial outlet where I can use my Canadian Credit Card.
Since we needed Water in our Fresh Water Tank I headed over to the Water Fill Station here in La Posa South LTVA. There were very few people getting Water as more and more RVs are pulling out Daily. I only filled our Fresh Water Barrel with about Thirty Gallons of Water. I was able to transfer the entire amount to our Fresh Water Tank so that I’ll be able to stow the Barrels this week.
Kathy made Chicken Stir Fry and Egg Rolls for lunch topped off with an Apple Sauce Cup for dessert. This would be our largest meal of the day.
Before Ken had set up his RV in January Kathy had noticed that there were lots of Nails around the old Firepit from people that had burned Old Skids. She had already used our Magnet to clean a few others up so now that Ken had left for the Season she went over to clean it up. We always try to leave things better then when we arrive and this was another of Kathy’s contribution to that. It took her nearly an Hour but she collected over Thirty Pounds of Nails into a Plastic Lined Box. Tomorrow I’ll bring the Truck over to collect it and bring it to the Trash Bins.
I again worked off the Truck Tailgate to finish Wiring, Sealing, Assembling and finally Mounting the new Mudflaps. Kathy and Wayne were visiting in the Shade of the Trailer to keep cool while I lay on my mat under the Truck to finish fastening them in place. Now the Truck looks the way it should.
For supper Kathy made Chicken Noodle Soup and Chicken Sandwiches. We also shared an Orange and some Yogurt Cups for dessert.
(L-R) Kathy, Sue and Wayne.
This past winter we picked up the same amount of Firewood as we had in the past but the Weather had made it difficult to have any Campfires. Since we are not supposed to transport it across State Lines this last week the Weather has been perfect. We once again had another Campfire with Wayne and Sue and their Fur-Kids. It’s so peaceful and relaxing allowing us to share stories of our lives. We still have more Firewood to burn another Day.
We called it a night shortly after 10:00 so with all that Fresh Air I don’t think we’ll have any problems sleeping tonight. 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've wrecked a riding mower while texting.


  1. Cute pic of Skelly driving! Glad you were able to get the mud flaps done! Nice! How nice the weather is cooperating so you're able to have some nice fires now! Better late than never! Nice job Kathy!

  2. Couple of nice meals. You can never go wrong having chicken soup.

  3. That's interesting about Canadian credit cards. I had no idea they were any different. Mud flaps look good!!

  4. There is alway something frustrating to have to deal with re cell phones or whatever. I cancelled my Magic Jack account this winter as it would not work with the new OS on my computer.

  5. Skelly always gives me a laugh, I hope he joins you next year. Way to go Kathy!

  6. It should not be this hard to give a cell phone company your money. To bad you cannot just get a US plan, period, to use all the time. Our plan, totally unlimited, covers us in the US, Canada, and Mexico. I suppose that would be to easy of a solution so there must be some catch.
    Sounds like your days our winding down there. Enjoy you last campfires.

  7. I sure wish one provider would come up with a fool-proof plan for cell phones for us Canadians. Just when they get close they change the plan. Very frustrating.
    Must be getting lonely around there. Just you and the snakes!

  8. That sure is a lot of nails. Place is looking pretty empty.

  9. Kathy did good!

    Enjoy your campfires, hear that we might get one last hooray from "Old Man Winter" :-(
