Sunday, February 21, 2016, Imperial Dam BLM LTVA, CA, Day 7, 0 Miles, 4134.6 Miles for the Trip

I found another Casita fiberglass trailer on my morning walk. While the Trillium left, there are still 3 fiberglass trailers at Imperial Dam. After breakfast I took a photo of the daily golf game. The course is interesting - They clear the rocks from the starting location, and attempt to land on the cleared area around the "hole". No grass, but lots of rocky, sandy ground between holes.

After doing some reading, including the Sunday hometown paper, I watched them set up for the Sunday concert at the Gravel Pit Ramada. A collection of volunteer musicians that gather to play & sing on Sunday afternoons. One of the more popular attractions at the campground - the parking lot & Ramada are both full. I can listen at my campsite overlooking the area.

I did attempt to edit the hummingbird video I shot yesterday, however I'm rusty enough on the current version of Adobe Premiere that it isn't going to happen. Here is a link to the unedited clip at YouTube. By the way, the soundtrack isn't the hummingbird - there was a helicopter going by when I made the video.

I did some early packing, putting away the hummingbird feeder, the portable solar panel, etc. I'm planning on leaving Imperial Dam tomorrow & slowly heading east.

The wind has come up to the point where I'm not sure I can cook outside. The plan was spaghetti & meatballs, however it may be too windy to boil water. I'll wait until around 5:00 & decide between spaghetti & soup cooked on the stove inside.

Until tomorrow -
