Saturday, October 28, 2017 - Red Rock Canyon State Park, Cantil, CA, Day 4, 0 Miles, 2,284.2 Towing Miles For the Trip


Well, this may be the first day here at Red Rock Canyon that I can't post. The campground WiFi is down, as is AT&T. I'll put the page together & try again later. Well, it is later & the park WiFi is back up; AT&T is still dead.

No overnight photos - a group of boy scouts moved in on both sides of my site. Ten tents right next door & another 5 just down the hill. Not a particularly noisy bunch, but lots of light.

Boy Scouts Next Door

After breakfast & a short walk around the campground, I headed to Ridgecrest to do laundry. I found the I Wash, a nice laundromat that uses cards rather than quarters. You pay $2.00 for the card, and buy time on the machines in $5.00 increments. I guessed at $10.00 worth to wash & dry, put $2.50 each into 2 washers, and $1.50 each into two dryers, got my $2.00 back by turning in the card, leaving $2.00 on the card. It was still less expensive than many of the laundromats I've used, and while I could have kept the card, who knows when I'll be back.

After that I headed to Walmart, stopping om the way to fill the truck @ $2.739 per gallon at a Fastrip gas station. Gas prices are all over the place - on the drive I saw it as high as $4.75 per gallon. I suspect it will get more expensive as I get closer to Death Valley.

Dinner was spaghetti and meatballs.

Hopefully, until tomorrow! -
