Tuesday, December 5, 2017 - La Posa West, LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 20, 0 Miles, 3,253.8 Towing Miles For the Trip

A very cool night. Down to 31°F at 6:00AM, the first night below freezing since I've been at Quartzsite. The furnace had no problem keeping the trailer at the 58°F I set the thermostat for, but between the hour it took to bake the pot pie & running the furnace off & on overnight, I found an empty propane tank in the morning. The auto switchover regulator did its thing so I never ran out, but drove to the 76 station to refill the empty at $2.10 per gallon.

A cool day as well, it only got to the low 60's. I spent most of it in the trailer researching single DIN receivers. I may try another brand than the Kenwood just to see if there is any improvement even though it has a better sensitivity rating than any of those I looked at. I do like the Pioneer SuperTuner even though it isn't rated as sensitive as the Kenwood. I really miss the JVC receiver I had in the 17. Unfortunately, it is no longer made.

I did find a new (to me) Anne Hillerman novel (Rock With Wings). I prefer her father's books, but since he is no longer with us, if I want to read about the Leaphorn, Chee & Bernie Manuelito characters, she is the only choice. Don't get me wrong - her writing is OK, but Tony's was better.

Of course, just as I started the book the North Country Library System (my digital public library) informed me that my reservation for Stephen King's Sleeping Beauties was in. Good for only 14 days - good thing I read quickly since I don't read multiple books at the same time.

So, most of the day was spent sitting in the trailer reading & eating Kettle Corn.

Dinner was a grilled turkey Bubba Burger & chips.

Until Tomorrow -
