Tuesday, January 18, 2022, La Posa West LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 39 - 0 Miles, 3,765.5 Miles for the Trip
Today is dump station runs for the two 5th wheels in our section. I'm close - 3 lights on the readout; 4 is full. The better check is to shut off the water & look down the toilet (I know, too much information!). Looks like I can go a couple more days. The problem is every day I wait will be longer lines at the dump station. The next two weeks will be the most crowded the Long Term Visitor Areas get with the Big Tent Show starting Saturday. The length of the line doesn't really matter to me - I either listen to my recorded book or read my Kindle while waiting.
I talked with one of the 5th wheel owners & he said it was about an hour wait.
I headed to Parker to do some shopping. All at Safeway. I did go into Walmart, but the lines were even longer than the last time I was there, so I left. I'll look for a full sized blanket somewhere else. Fairly heavy traffic coming back to Quartzsite.
I picked up the supplies to make a blueberry pie. I have enough neighbors that I won't have to eat all of it!
On the way back from Parker I saw a Bigfoot Class C in great condition (a rare vehicle that is made the same way fiberglass trailers are made) and 8 Winnebago Views all signing in at the entrance station. Must be a tour group - I've never seen a long line waiting to sign in. Glad they are all heading to La Posa North.

I took a shower in the trailer. I usually use the pay showers here at Quartzsite to save both fresh water and space in the gray tank, but since my black tank is almost full, I still have over 1/2 a tank of fresh water, and the gray tank is still sitting on 1/3rd full, I can afford the water use. It doesn't hurt that it is 77°F in the trailer & 73°F outside so I don't need to blast the furnace to make it warm enough for showering!
Dinner was an Amy's Mushroom Risotto.
Until Tomorrow -
