Monday, January 8, 2018 - La Posa West LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 50, 0 Miles, 3,740.2 Towing Miles For the Trip
A very cloudy day. I still got enough sun (although it might be better to say daylight) to bring the batteries back to within 3 amp hours of full, so I can't complain.
After breakfast, I tore the bed apart (well the sheets & blankets, not the bed), packed up the laundry and headed to the Laundromat. Quite crowded. Although I didn't have to wait for washing machines, all the dryers were full. A bunch of us were waiting, and sort of went in order. I was lucky that as my turn came up two dryers next to each other stopped, were quickly emptied, and filled with my stuff.
Back at the trailer I made the bed, put the laundry away, and moved half my socks to the dead storage area under the bed. The tray I kept them in was overflowing, and even on the longest times between laundry runs, I never got through half of them. Boy, am I running out of things to write about when I get down to describing my socks bin!
It hit 70°F outside, and the wind was very light, so it was comfortable to sit out & read, which I did for most of the afternoon. I also started a map update on my Garmin. Even with a fairly fast AT&T data connection, it is taking the entire afternoon to download the map. I probably should have started the Verizon Jetpack since it is quite a bit faster than the AT&T service, but I didn't, and don't want to change in the middle of a download.
Dinner was a couple of cashew butter & jelly sandwiches along with some cottage cheese. I was going to do a pot pie, but the forecast is for rain tomorrow, so that might be a better time to run the oven for an hour.
Until Tomorrow -
