Our Location: BLM Plomosa Road, Quartzsite, AZ
I think the good night’s sleeps are becoming a habit and I’m enjoying them greatly. It makes me think perhaps I’ve solved the insomnia issue. Keeping my fingers crossed. Of course it’s also very quiet here where we’re located. I think I could hear the breeze through the coyote’s fur coat as he passes by if I listened hard enough.
|I love the antlers.|
We were undecided about what to do today but a quick text message remedied that. A quick text to Patsy (Chillin’ with Patsy) and we had a drop by time of around 11 am. We headed out the door around 10 am as we had things to do before dropping by the Suites. A stop at the transfer station, then on to fill water jugs, a propane tank to fill too, and then we checked out a vendor for firewood but he had only scraps left and $17 for a bundle was too much for slivers even if it was hardwood. After that we were heading south along AZ 95 toward La Posa South.
|L to R: Tom's friend, Tom, wife of Tom's friend, Suzie. I have no idea where George went, he had been standing beside Tom's friend. So unfortunately I have no pictures of George today.|
Just around the 11 AM mark we pulled into find our friend Patsy with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye. I think she may have been happy to see us. Soon Bill (On our way) arrived as well, and after hugs we had a very nice visit. Such a very sweet couple, warm and friendly, lots of laughs and some interesting conversation.
|Bill, Patsy, Rob and Pat.|
Soon we noticed a fella wandering over in a nice tye dye shirt and a big 10 gallon hat, sure enough George ( Our Awesome Adventure) came strolling over. Some more chin flapping and then Miss Suzie came along as well. From there Rob and Pat (Patsy and Bill’s traveling companions this year) came along and we realized we have a little in common with those folks too. Soon Deb and Tom ( Celebrating the Dance) stepped out of the Stinger B to join our little chattering circle of folks. Shortly there after friends of Deb & Tom’s showed up for a visit, and I can’t recall their names, sorry folks. Shortly after that the party broke up a bit and we grabbed our chairs and had us a quick sit down with George and Suzie back at their motor home.

Soon we said our goodbyes, hugs and see you again, safe travel etc all around. Nice folks, we enjoyed our visit. Next time perhaps we’ll get a chance to sit down with Deb & Tom as well. Although I’m not sure we’ll be in the area long enough for it to be this time.

Back home Riley and I enjoyed a lazy lunch and spent the remainder of the day doing a few little puttering things. We did truly enjoy our visit with the folks at La Posa South even though it was a quick one. Another time we’ll manage a visit of a bit longer duration I hope but maybe not until next year. I think everyone is soon going to scatter like the sands in a windstorm.
|The middle of sunset.|
A call to my dad to see how things are going. Sister Jan has bronchitis but seems to be feeling a bit better now. Hopefully they get rid of the flu bug and get over all of this sick stuff before long. A call from daughter Courtney as well tonight to chat with her sister Riley and of course me for a bit. An interesting note as I look out the window tonight. We can see Quartzsite now off in the distance and before we couldn't see it there were too many rigs blocking our view. They have been leaving fast and furious for the last number of days and there are now big open space that before held hundreds of rigs.
A happy birthday to Riley. She is has reached the ripe old age of 27 years old today. Riley is a wonderful traveling companion and I’m very fortunate to have her with me. She is a sweet young lady with a big heart. I love her dearly. Happy Birthday Magoo.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you had an excellent day where ever you may be and whatever you may have been doing.
Until next time… take care, be safe,
