Welcome to AZ

We were up early and back on the road before 7 AM.   Here is the rest area we stayed in .. beautiful huh?


Since it was dark last night and I couldn’t get the welcome to AZ sign, I got this one instead


the desert has a beauty of it’s own


going under the road to drive .. ekkkk


don’t you just love the art work here?


WE stopped at Casa Grande and stocked up on groceries before arriving at Quartzsite .. ouch that was expensive although we haven’t bought them in several weeks.


We found our exit .. Yeppie were almost there


Around 2.30 PM we arrived at our destination although we couldn’t find the RTR GTG so we decided to just park, setup and find them later.  Here is where we are parked, if in the area stop and see us

where we are

We found the RTR group, we didn’t go down the road far enough but we decided to just stay where we are for now and we plan to meet them at 10 am . 


Here is how close our neighbors are .. nice huh?


here is where home is parked for a bit


our electric out here on the BLM land is our generator


behind us there is no one .. Yet


our back yard


this is the view out our front door .. nice huh .. see the mountains in the distance


see our home with a nice camp fire to enjoy


hubby built a nice fire and one it got down to coals we dug out the stick and roasted polish sausage and marshmallows for dinner ..mmm it was good


we watched the sun go down and enjoyed a beautiful sunset while basking in the warmth of a nice fire on a nice warm winter nights.  After enjoying our fire we decided to kick on the generator for a bit and then we called it a night


we traveled 393 miles today and our total was 1590 miles and we spent $716 dollars in fuel and an additive for the truck.
