North of MM 4, Ogilby Road, Winterhaven, California
A very nice morning, it was 52F/11C when I got up at 7 am this morning. I pulled on shorts and it was comfortable!! Yeah, we've finally found some heat, and we like it very much.
We had plans this morning but they hinged on a few things. I intended to service my generator this week but for some reason I can't find the manual or the spark plug tool. I don't remember leaving them behind but I can't find them anywhere and so I must have. I asked Doug if he the tool and he said yes, so I was going to head over there use his spark plug tool and then go on into Yuma to get a new plug, come home and do the service. However I decided it would be easier to find a Honda dealer and have them just do the service and so that's what I did. We dropped in to see Doug and Yuma for a few minutes, gave him some butter that he needed and then headed off to Liberty Motorsports on Yuma Avenue. I'll pick it up in a day or two.
I bet that road washes out often when it rains. It's to the tower up there. I know the regulars know the name of that casino but I know it as the place you turn to go to Mexico. The California Agriculture Checkpoint, set up just past that Casino above. Lately they've been just waving us through.
Riley and I headed back to Walmart for a few items we forgot yesterday since we're already just down the road anyway. On the way home we opted to stop at Lin's Chinese Buffet for lunch. It was reasonable in price $26.00 for the two of us but again we found the food to be cold. We've both decided we won't go back.
These 3 pics were taken from about the same spot. This is Ogilby Road where we head for home. It's rough until the dark pavement. You get a bit of a better idea what the desert looks like here. We park over that way to the left. The close up area is a fee area.
Back home we decided we've done enough for the day and so have spent the rest of the day doing very little. I sat in the sun/shade to read for a few hours but have now moved inside to do my post. It's been a nice warm day and we are enjoying the heat!!
For those of you that know the area, this is American Girl Mine Road. It's virtually empty. I think it would be safe to say you can see less than 100 rigs from the main road all the way to split. It's just empty.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
|We are just north of MM4, at the very edge of the dip there is a road on the right, this is the entrance.
Until next time...
Take care, be safe,
