Tuesday, December 7, 2021, Lost Dutchman State Park, Apache Junction, AZ, Day 2- 0 Miles, 3,591.5 Miles for the Trip

During my morning walk I found an Escape 5th wheel and a rare Nest. The Nest is/was a fiberglass trailer started out as a Nest Caravan, designed by Robert Johans. Lots of discussion throughout the design & introduction period by folks on the Fiberglass RV forum. It was only in production for a short time before it was sold to Airstream and became the Airstream Nest. Airstream only built a few before killing the product.

When I got back to the trailer I read my email and discovered that Apple was mailing me a "Return Package" to Oswego with which I had to return my iPhone 10 within 14 days to get a $200.00 credit. I thought they were going to email me return instructions that I could use here on the road. I called Apple and they told me I could return it to an Apple store, so back to the San Tan Village Apple Store. Hopefully, I'll find the return credit on my card.

Back at the trailer I went for another walk. While it is 72°F, there is little or no sun, so it doesn't feel all that warm. I stopped by the Escape 5.0TA and chatted with the owner. Back at the trailer I spent the rest of the afternoon reading. Still not quite half way through An Echo in the Bone.

One of the few vegetables that I've always liked from Walmart was their bagged snap peas. They were always plump and stringless. Since I like them raw in salads or just as a snack, the stringless was important. Well, that is gone. While the bag is the same, they snap peas not only have strings, but the entire pod is stringy and chewy, almost like eating a standard pea pod. I guess they changed farmers!

Dinner was a Saffron Road Sweet & Sour Chicken microwave dinner. Not as impressive as some of their other meals.

Until Tomorrow -
