In Quartzsite. Left Amado at 7:30 this morning and arrived in Quartzsite at 12:30. 289 miles. A much easier trip than the last few. No tolls, no military or agriculture checks, no craters in the asphalt. In fact except for a few miles on the I-10 where Bill drove in the fast lane the roads were good. LOONNNGGG sigh of relief. I do not like trying to use Google Maps for this. I miss my Streets and Trips. I hope that when I take my laptop in for cleaning and repair they will be able to reinstall streets and trips.
Last nights sunset from Amado.
Did not get to see the moon though as there were just too many clouds.
Lots of pretty flowers blooming along the highways. These clumps of bright yellow flowers. We were traveling around 60mph so the pictures don't do them justice.
Just liked the look of this one. With the mountain and the cacti.
A couple more of the cacti.
These little bluish purple flowers were hard to catch a picture of. They were so pretty.
There were several clouds over these mountains leaving their shadows.
Stopped at the Flying J and filled the tank before heading to Shady Lane RV Park. Got settled in and headed out for some FOOD. Had lunch at 3 Families Restaurant. Bill said his Reuben Sandwich was very good. I am still getting my bacon fix so I had a BLT.
The Dish TV is working and my Verizon MiFi is working. For some reason neither Bill nor I have ever been able to connect to this park's WiFi. We've been here several times. Don't know what the problem is, everyone else seems to be able to connect.
As I write this the wind is picking up. Glad it wasn't blowing while we were traveling.
Staying here tomorrow, trying to find someone who can fix the hole in the fresh water tank.
I can't figure something out...I'm having a terrible time trying to find Smucker's Strawberry JELLY. Every store has jam and preserves, but no JELLY. Neither WalMart nor Safeway had it in Green Valley. Ended up buying a Safeway store brand and it isn't as good. I just don't like chunks in my spread.
