We left Bullhead City and Katherine Campground on the 20th of this month. So far, we are not keeping to our “pencil” plan! We are enjoying our stay at each spot we find. We headed south to Needles, Lake Havasu, Parker and finally Quartzsite.
Like most “snowbirds” we do not get tired of seeing this sign!!!
We stopped in Havasu to get batteries for our Walkie Talkies. Seems the rechargeable one aren’t charging any more. We pushed on for Quartzsite. We arrived by noon and found a place to camp off La Plamosa Rd. We first camped near the main highway to Quartzsite and found the traffic does not stop at anytime. So we moved a couple of miles down the road.
We do love this kind of camping. No neighbors close by, no generator noise, and it is very dark at night! The night sky is beautiful.
Saturday we went into check out the booths. The kitchen booth is my favorite and I spent a wad buying all these kitchen tools for the trailer. Then I went across the street to Sock – it – to – me! I found a nice top and some cool gloves made by women in Nepal. The lady clerking there moved her little phone credit card machine and ended up charging me $200 more than the $23 purchase. So this became a fiasco until I could get home and use my laptop to check my credit card. Whew it was credited as she canceled the purchase but my credit card people said I had the charge.
One of Dale’s student workers from 2005 came to visit us and we took her out to lunch at the Grubsteak. We had a very enjoyable afternoon with her and catching up.
On Monday, we put everything away and headed for Yuma and the KOFA SKP park there. But first, breakfast at our favorite restaurant in Quartzsite. Good food and inexpensive prices. They are famous for their sweet potato pancakes.
In these mountains we did a hike to the Palm Canyon with Terry and Kathy. Check out photos here at RVECAFE.com
We were amazed to get into the park at Yuma. Usually all spaces are full and boondocking is crammed full. We were able to get a space. We are on a corner. Under a street light!!!! But we like it. Traveling is such hard work we had to go out to a lunch/dinner at the Golden Corral. Always a favorite with us.
Since today is Christmas, we want to wish all our friends a very Merry and blessed Christmas. Today, the world celebrates a holiday the emphasizes the birth of God’s Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Life is good. Enjoy your day.
