Wouldn't you know, today is the only day this week there are going to be high winds! So we'll be spending one more day here in Quartzsite. We were talking to the campground manager and he said this winter here was crazy. They were full and overflowing every day. Glad to hear that.
But back to yesterday. After we got up and woke up yesterday morning Bill got to thinking about the other tires. They are all the same age with the same sitting in the hot Vegas sun and driving on the horrible Mexican roads use on them. So before getting back on the road he wanted to have them checked. Luckily in Gila Bend there was a tire service with very good reviews. Heading towards it. The Alien restaurant.It was listed in the campgrounds brochure as Ironwood Towing, but it is also a Goodyear store. Called them and they had the size we needed IF we needed one. Well turns out we got two more new tires. Both on driver's side read. Inner tire was in really bad shape. And the outer one not much better. Better safe than sorry. So now we have three new tires on rear - one had already been replaced a couple of years ago as had the front tires.
Took less than an hour to get them all changed. So 800 dollars in new tires later (includes tire from day before) we were leaving Gila Bend at 10:15. Would have like to stop here and look around. Looks interesting.
Big metal dinosaurs in a Pilot downtown Gila Bend. Price of diesel.
On the road - just desert and mountains. Lots of yellow flowers along the road.
Between Gila Bend and Buckeye. Sign said left lane closed ahead. Well more than the left lane closed, actually both lanes were closed. Driving on the shoulder. Glad they paved it too.
Stopped to fuel up before getting to Quartzsite. Glad we can get home without buying more gasoline. It went up 10 cents from day before. Any way he was parked next to us. Three headed dragon in metal work. Really pretty. Pictures not very good. There were colorful flowers all around the base. Think we could put something like this in our front yard without the HOA going into cardiac arrest?
