Friday, December 24, 2021, La Posa West LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 16 - 0 Miles, 3,758.5 Miles for the Trip

Another warm night. in the 50's - the furnace never came on. On the other hand, it rained most of the night & early morning. Most of the time it was so light that you could barely hear it on the roof. No water running in the washes and no nearby puddles. The rain stopped around 10:00 and we now have mostly sunny skies.

Since it was raining, I didn't do my coffee walk - made a pot here in the trailer. After breakfast it was reading forums & my Kindle. Current book is Zeros by Chuck Wendig, and a Larry Niven audio book - A World Out Of  Time.

Very windy - my weather station showed 28MPH top wind speed with an 18MPH average. The portable panel blew over - I put the shorter legs on it and so far it is still there!

I took a short walk around the campground, but the wind blown dust was annoying & I couldn't keep my hat on so I quit and sat in the trailer. Still warm at 67°F. Late afternoon the wind died down enough that I went for a mile & a half walk around the campground. Watched a nicely restored GM Motorhome pull in, heading south down Old Yuma Road (an internal dirt road that parallels US 95 between La Posa West & La Posa Tyson Wash).

While grilling my chicken I wandered over to meet the two women in Class B vans parked next to me.  One of them is an alumni of Oswego. She was there while I was teaching, but as an IT major, never took any theatre courses.  It is a small world!

Dinner was a duplicate of last night - grilled chicken thigh, potato salad and applesauce.

Until Tomorrow -
