Just trying to get some pictures uploaded so I'm playing with this post.

High Winds

Yesterday and today we have had high winds to the 40mph gusts. I was planning on moving my trailer in the next few days so I hope it lets up. I had some people park way to close to me and I think I need a change of scenery. Also I have been being harassed by a guy just across from me.
I have several job applications in and hopefully I will get hired on pretty soon. I was told this morning of another place that will be hiring soon so off to town to get another foot in the door.
Ron and Terry arrived here a couple nights ago. It was good to see them after a year and 1/2. They are scouting for a place to camp their 5er.
Quartzsite is starting to get busier. Quite a few vendors are setting up. Next month will be even better.

Today was laundry day. I'm getting it done, just sitting playing on the computer also. It's nice this laundromat has WiFi, plus a patio where they serve bisquits/gravy and hot dogs. Their Chicago Style Vienna dogs are the best. So if in Quartzsite go to "Gone to the Dogs" laundromat and get it all done at one time. It's across the street from the Roadrunner market.

Snowbirds are finally moving into Q. We have about 6-8 check into the BLM area every other day.

I have been collecting some wood for fires in the evening. The nights are so beautiful. The sun goes down and the sky is as clear and bright with stars. So a fire is always welcome.

Ron and Terry will arrive shortly. I haven't seen them in about a year and 1/2 so I'm looking forward to them getting here.

The rock club will be opening its doors soon and I plan on going down and getting involved in that also.
Drive safe getting here and look me up at La Posa North--1st 5th wheel this side of the garbage dumps on the right with the WYO and US flag out front. Sandy

Oct 5, 2009

We arrived in Quartzsite Az on Sept 19th. It was blazing hot for about 10 days well over 100 degrees. The high was 112 degrees. I melted, complained but survived somehow. It's now in the low 90's and feels comfortable believe it or not.

I went to Algodonez, Mexico and picked up some new glasses. For $125 I got new frames, bifocals, progressive, eye exam and they were ready in less than 2 hours.
I had to have a shrimp taco also. They are soooo good. They fix them in a warmed corn tortilla, battered fried shrimp inside with pico de gallo, raw shredded cabbage, lime juice and sour cream. They are to die for. I do have to go back and get my frames adjusted soon.

Today is chore day. We got propane, a load of wood (going back for a 2nd one), doing laundry, checking the internet for messages and get stuff done on line. It will at least take up a few hours.

People are starting to trickle into Quartzsite. When we first got here (the heat probably kept them away), the streets were bare. Now the stop lights are working overtime.
Till I write again, can't wait to see all my old friends and the new ones I haven' met yet!
