Sometimes Life isn’t that Exciting
Can’t really say much has happened the last week. I went down to Buckeye, Az to the Walmart a picked up a new chair. I had two chairs when I started out and one failed. One thing that always gives away the number of folks camped, is the number of chairs on the “patio.” I have to say the new chair is much better than the old one. It’s taller and wider, not that I needed wider!
I drove up to Wickenburg for groceries and filled the water jugs. That is one of the nice things about Arizona, there are water stations either alone in a store lot or near a door at a grocery store. No need to sneak into a forest campground to fill a jug. You’ll see a variance in the price even by a block. There was a water station I used in Yuma and it was a buck for five gallons. Just across the street at a liquor store it was 75 cents for five gallons. I switched.
I’ll head back to Wickenburg to do laundry and also pick up some dog food at the Trailer Supply Co. today.
I went up Aguila Road yesterday. There are a few sites to camp in, if you aren’t in need of a cell or internet signal. Actually the North end of the road has a better chance of a signal. The one thing you have to look for is a camp far from the road. Gravel trucks running up a down can make you think you’re at Burning Man, without the fun.
I first came South on Aguila Road two years ago. It’s a gravel road and the Casita didn’t take a liking to it. I did find the camp I’m in on that adventure.
I had hoped to find a new camp for next year’s Southward trek but nothing looked good.
Next week I’ll head over to Quartzsite, Az. To the North is a business, RV Pitstop, where you can dump tanks, fill water and also get propane. From there, I’ll head south to a boondock spot I’ve camped in before, for a few days.
I’m still surprised by the warm weather. 80º yesterday and again today. It’s expected to be that high again a couple of days next week.
Maybe next year I’ll stay in Northern California until January 2019!
Thanks for stopping by.
