North of MM 4, Ogilby Road, Winterhaven, California
Cooler this morning but still nice. Riley and I decided separate walks would be good this morning and I took the Dogsled back toward the mountains, for the first 3000 steps. How do I know it's that many? Well that's where we walk to and turn around pretty much where I parked and so I know it's about 3000 steps to that point.
My trusty feet carried me into the very edges of the Cargo Muchacho Mountains. I climbed just a little but it was a good start for future efforts. Once again all photos are with my phone!
Back home there was a message to come pick up the generator at Liberty Motorsports on Yuma Avenue. So we climbed into the Dogsled and headed off to pick it up. I thought the bill a bit high but with a new plug, filters and oil, it probably wasn't. From there we found some juice for the Big Dog and for the generator as well. Soon we were rolling along back home.
I'm trying to get my posts finished by 4 pm MST so often times the last half of the day is missing. I'll fill you in on late yesterday's happenings. A call to sister in law Barb (married to brother Rick), had me being caught up on the latest news and gossip. Barb and her sister Connie have booked their winter getaway for the end of January to the DR. We hope they have a fabulous time!!! Brother Rick was standing near an exploding paint bomb and is a bit the worse for wear, but apparently alright. Cousin Bob Blue had a run in with a table saw and came out on the wrong end losing at least 1 finger and possible 2 or 3 before all things are figured out. Bob had a stroke a number of years ago and of course this hand is his good working hand. It's a tough thing for sure. We hope both Rick and Bob have speedy recoveries and stay out of trouble for a while.
A call from my dad after chatting with Barb made the rest of the evening. Snow, snow squalls, cold north winds and very gusty blasts seemed to be the weather there, and dad thought maybe 3 inches of snow on the deck at the time of our talking. Hopefully the snow ends soon!
So ends another post. I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Until next time...
Take care, be safe,
