Monday, February 15, 2016, Imperial Dam BLM LTVA, CA, 76.7 Miles, 4134.6 Miles for the Trip

I don't know if it was just nature, or all the dust in the air the wind created, but last night's sunset was very colorful :

Last Night's Sunset

Finally a day on the road. I headed over to say goodbye to some of those still at Dome Rock, then headed to the La Posa South LTVA dump station, only had to wait for one RV ahead of me, then south on US 95 to the Imperial Dam LTVA. While officially in California, most of the people keep Mountain Time (AZ Time) since most of the places you can easily get to are still in Arizona. While there are a couple or restaurants on the Yuma Proving Ground (that I've never been to), as well as fuel & propane, there is also a stop a bit closer to the campground that has showers, drinking water & propane as well as mail drops. Yuma is the closest town/city, about 30 miles to the southwest.

The weather isn't much different than Dome Rock - a bit warmer, and just as windy. I managed to find my favorite spot empty, so I'm parked just about where I was 2 years ago. I got a request for a photo of my new beard so I included it here just in case someone expects me to look like my beardless image that I used for a couple of the forum avatars.

After setting up I took a handful of books to the "Liberry", an Airstream trailer converted to full length bookshelves full of books to trade. I picked up a few & left off even more. After that I sat in the shade & read. While there may be one hidden somewhere, I believe I'm the only fiberglass egg here. I made a round of the area & didn't see any others.

Dinner will probably be soup. I've been snacking all afternoon & don't feel like cooking anything.

Until tomorrow -
