Road Runner BLM, Quartzsite, Arizona
This morning was not an encouraging day to be pulling out, the clouds piled up looked pretty sure to dump lots of rain. We did pull out anyway and while Riley and I noticed lots of evidence of a great deal of rain, we didn’t get more than a few drops during our entire drive. The Dogsled and Igloo are just grimy from the water spray coming off the road and passing vehicles.
We left just before 8 am MST heading for the dump station at the Chevron just down the road. Deb & Tom headed out straight for Q and Doug and Yuma stopped at the dump station not very long after we pulled out of the dump area.
The ride was a wet one but not difficult. It is the first time in all of our years of coming to the area that we have gone north on US/AZ 95. Earlier this season was the first time we had travelled south on this road as we normally leave the Salton Sea area and head east on I-10. We stopped at the Proving Grounds to wait for Doug and a little over a half hour later he pulled in. We chatted for a bit before Riley and I headed off again.
We arrived at the Road Runner BLM before noon and pulled over to wait for Deb and Tom. Before long they arrived, unhooked The Little Black Limo and Deb D with Riley as co-pilot headed off to check out a place for us all to park. The Igloo and Stinger B were parked and set up before Doug and Yuma followed by Ken and Shirley arrived. A little confusion but soon we were all parked enjoying some lunch and then happy hour. The sun was down before we headed inside for the night. Chatted with dad for about 20 minutes just catching up.
Sorry I forgot to post this last night so I added this little paragraph before publishing. I didn’t take any pics after we arrived here but I will post some today if weather permits. The winds are already picking up at 4:30 am and we have a wind advisory in effect here today. It may be a stay inside day for us.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you had a good day.
Until next time….
Take care, stay safe,
