Saturday, February 10, 2024 - Dome Rock, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 10 - 0 Miles, 3,452.3 Miles for the trip

My weather app lied. It showed a sunny, cloud free day today (at least it did yesterday). Rain around 5:30AM, drizzle at 8:30, and heavy clouds. Checked the app & it now shows a 65% chance of rain today. In any case, I put off my morning walk & will wait until it clears.

A count of trailers (not mine) was made late yesterday:

Bean 1
Bigfoot 2
Boler 1
Casita 49
Escape 34
Oliver 2
Scamp 8
Lil Snoozy 1
Total 98

As of 10:45 the sun is still hiding behind clouds, but there are sections of blue sky. Still cool at 47°F. Oh, and the wind is back. 53°F at 12:30. Just to see why there are complaints, this is 17°F below the average temperature for the day. Yesterday it was warmer in my home town in upstate NY than here, although today they are 15°F cooler than Quartzsite. Strange weather.

Since the arrival time for Buckskin Mountain State Park is 2:00, I'm going to wait until tomorrow to finish putting the outdoor stuff away, folding down the solar panels, and packing the trailer & truck. Glad I took the Clam down yesterday - 20+ MPH winds today.

I walked around the campground at 2:00. Lots have left, and most of those still here are hiding out from the cool temperatures & wind in their trailers, but a few brave souls were out:


Another walk around the campground at 5:00:


Since I had a sub for lunch, dinner was just cheese & crackers.

Until Tomorrow -
