Monday, December 27, 2021, Rice Ranch South, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 2 - 0 Miles, 3,764.5 Miles for the Trip

The furnace worked great all night. A very dreary morning. 45°F and heavy clouds. Phoenix has cold & wet weather predicted for the rest of the week. I'm going to wait until we get a sunny day to move back to the LTVA. Maybe tomorrow. If I do make the move the solar panels on the roof are going to have to stay flat - 35MPH wind gusts predicted & I don't want to be swinging them around or putting out the portable panel in that kind of wind.

I have to admit I have enjoyed the electric heater. I can run the trailer at 70°F without burning up the propane. The same with the water heater.

A bit shorter walk for coffee. I spent most of the morning & early afternoon changing Dr & dentist appointments to clear the week of the Townsend, TN gathering. It used to be the Annual Southeast Spring Eggscursion, but is now unorganized. Anne & Guido wanted to make it the opening trip for them and I have no problem hanging around a couple more weeks on the road. Evidently there are folks planning to attend - we got the last two sites next to each other.

I also made reservations for the first month of my trip back from the Quartzsite rally. As much as I don't like reservations, they seem to be necessary. Even this early I found weekends booked (as well as some weekdays) at many of the places I used to just arrive unreserved. So, the trip will be as planned as the trip out.

Dinner was the remainder of the pot roast and applesauce.

Until Tomorrow -
