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.

Packed and Ready To Roll.

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

Even though we are trying to rest up for our trek back east our bodies don’t seem to be getting the message. I was up by 6:35 this morning and barely had the Window Shades opened when Kathy came downstairs at 6:45. She got up on her own with no prodding from me.

During breakfast we discussed what we had to do today. Kathy wanted to do some inside cleaning as well as making the last of our Expenditure Entries on our Spreadsheet. I needed to reorganize our Basement. We have added to what was already an over filled Basement.
White Desert Flowers growing out of the stone.

After doing my inside chores I started pulling things out of the Basement. Tools went back in the Toolboxes, Fittings went into the Fitting Container, Sealants, Lubricants and Paints found their way into a proper Container. We had purchased Containers to hold the components for the Wind Generator and it all had to fit. By the time Kathy called me in for lunch most of the Basement had been rearranged and there were only the few things that still needed sorting left out.
This would hurt.
Kathy served us each a bowl of her Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup which is always good. Since we were both working hard she also served us Roast Beef Sandwiches from the Roast that I grilled yesterday. This Roast came from Smart and Final and seemed tougher with less taste then the one we had gotten at Coyote Fresh Foods. Guess where we’ll be buying them in the future. Dessert was an Apple Sauce Cup.

Head to Tail about One and a Half Inches long.
Back outside by 1:30 I only had a few things left to put away but needed Kathy’s help to fold up our Patio Rug because the Twenty MPH Wind Gusts were trying to make it into a Kite. Just before she came outside I saw this interesting Bug. It was checking out the area near our Trailer. With the basement being full there was no room for any Hitch-Hikers like it.

By rearranging the Basement I managed to empty some cardboard Boxes and get rid of some Trash. Kathy had been busy doing the same thing inside. After loading the Near Empty Propane Tanks in the Truck along with the Trash we were ready to run a few errands.
Stopping at the Trash Bins we noticed that even though all the Small Bins and the One Large Roll-Off were still overly full someone had cleaned the Trash off the ground that surrounded them. We also noticed as we drove out of La Posa South the number of RVs has dropped just since yesterday probably due to the Hot Temperatures heading this way. It will be close to the Century Mark in another Week and a Half.

There were a few more vehicles on the road today as we headed into Quartzsite. Our first stop was RV Pit Stop to top off our Two Propane Tanks. It was strange to see the attendants actually sitting on a chair waiting for customers. Normally they are non-stop from the time they open until they close. I prefer getting our Propane filled in the US because you only pay for what you use not like in Canada where they have set prices for the different sized Tanks.

Our next stop was the Chevron gas station where we filled the Main Fuel Tank and added the same amount in our Auxiliary Tank. I also took the time to scrub away the collection of Bug Smears we gathered on our trip to Blythe yesterday. While I was busy doing that Kathy was checking out the Ornate Yard next to the station. She found that their taste in decorations was similar ours. What really caught her eye was the resident Rabbit that was enjoying their garden. It took Twenty Minutes to fuel the Truck with Diesel. It took Forty Minutes to clean the Dust and Bugs off all our Windows.

We both need a break from working in the heat so we planned on going to the Main Street Restaurant but they are now only open Tuesday to Friday until the 12th of April when they close like other restaurants for the season. Our next choice was Times Three Family Restaurant. Even at 4:00 it was busy. Kathy had a Taco Salad while I had a Ruben Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries. They were both tasty and filling. By the time we left at 5:00 the place was getting packed with Rowdy Senior Citizens whooping it up.

Back Home I got the Wind Deflector raised and the Hitch unlocked ready to hook up in the morning. It felt sad that this is our last night here for this season but there are other Adventures that are waiting for us down the road.

A few minutes ago we both had the munchies so Kathy brought out a Cherry Cheesecake Pie that she made this morning. Can you say “Mmmm Good”! Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
