Friday, January 10, 2020 - La Posa West LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 33 - 0 Miles, 3,894.2 Miles for the Trip

Back to the cold nights, 34°F last night. Also a bit cool today with a high of 62°F, and the wind makes it feel colder - an average for the day of 13 MPH with 24 MPH peaks. I walked to the 76 for coffee, made buttermilk waffles for breakfast (well, I really just popped a couple of Eggo's in the toaster since I don't carry a waffle iron), and sat in the trailer reading forums & journals until it hit 55°F outside.

On the way back from dropping the garbage off at the dumpsters, I stopped and talked with Wayne (the guy with the 5K solar trailer). He just bought a small 24' RV with full body slide to replace the 12 year old van he uses for short trips. He discovered that he could avoid quite a bit on local taxes by picking it up in Albuquerque rather than Quartzsite. It is going to be an interesting trip back to South Dakota with two RVs & two additional vehicles. He does have a place here in Arizona that he can leave some of them.

After that it was warm enough to sit outside as long as the trailer blocked the wind & I was in the sun.

Around 3:45 I headed to Sweet Darlene's for the Friday fish fry. It is getting crowded - by 4:00 all the tables were taken & there was a line waiting. The campground is also filling up. Two new RVs moved into our area, and a stream of them have been arriving at the other parts of La Posa West. I suspect the other 3 LTVAs are filling up, as well as the 14 day areas. The Big Tent Show opens a week from tomorrow.

As mentioned, dinner was the Friday fish fry at Sweet Darlene's.

Until Next Time -
