Saturday, February 11, 2017, Dome Rock, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 11, 0 Miles, 4,003.9 Miles For the Trip

This morning before breakfast I walked back to the top of one of the mountains overlooking the Dome Rock camping area & took a photo this morning to show the difference between the beginning of the rally & today.

While it started out cloudy, during the ladderball game a light rain began to fall. The game finished under umbrellas, as did the start of the soup meal.

For those who haven't been, each person brings a can of soup & they are combined to make large pots. Today there was a chicken base, a beef base & any soup left over went into the "mystery" pot. I had the mystery soup and it was delicious!

I toured John's 2017 Escape 21 for some last minute checks for my build list, then hauled my blueberry pie over to the Dessert Pot Luck. Greg read the statistics for the rally - 17 Scamps, 79 Casitas, 27 Escapes, 5 Big Foots, 3 Olivers, 1 Lil Snoozy, 5 others, and 6 SOBs (Some Other Brand non fiberglass eggs). With those arriving late & leaving early, these should be close, although if anyone was here and didn't register, they won't have been counted.

With all the dessert I ate, there won't be anything special for dinner unless I get hungry enough to snack...

Until Tomorrow
