It has been awhile since a day on the road. I stopped in Yuma to do laundry, and, since they were next door, a haircut. I also stopped at a Vons along CA 78 to resupply the fridge. Found out I didn't need a new card for Vons - my Safeway card works at Vons. I also stopped for gas - boy I can tell I'm out of Arizona & in California. Of course I picked the wrong station & paid $3.92 per gallon - a half mile down the road it was $3.62, still 30 cents more per gallon than in Yuma.

I'm in site 81 at Anza-Borrego State Park. All the sites in this loop look like they were designed for tents, class B or truck campers - I managed to fit the trailer & the RAV4 in my site by angling the car, but another foot longer & I'd have to unhook. While I may do that anyway to explore the small town next to the park, I left it hooked for the night.

I was hoping for an electric site since I haven't had hookups since La Paz, however they were all taken. Since the back of my site faces south, I should be OK with the solar panel. One nice feature of the park are the bathrooms. They have showers. It takes a $.50 token for 3 minutes, and it is a real 3 minutes, unlike some other pay showers. Still, it was nice to have more elbow room than the shower in the Escape.

Today's photos are of the site, a fellow fiberglass traveler in a Casita (there are two of them in the campground) some of the larger spaces in another loop, and, the showers (hey, I said I appreciated them!) I have no problems posting here in the park. At least at site 81 I have 3-4 bars of signal on both Verizon & AT&T. It is only 3G, but a good solid signal.

Dinner was a chicken breast & frozen California mix vegetables.
