2021 - 2022 Trip To The Southwest, Day 55

 Tuesday, December 14, 2021, La Posa West LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 6

Woke up to a crowing rooster from the bus conversion. A fairly warm night - only down to the low 50's. We are suppose to get rain & wind today. I'll see how the portable solar panel stand holds up.

Around 8:45 I headed for propane & coffee. $14.50 for 4.7 gallons at the 76 station. It is cheaper at some other places in town, but the 76 station is my usual stop. I have to remember who was at the cash register when I cashed out - he only charged me $1.09 for the coffee.

I sat in the trailer reading most of the afternoon. The wind picked up (predicted gusts of 37MPH) enough that I tipped the portable solar panel flat to the ground. Hopefully, it will still be there in the morning! While it is windy enough that the trailer is rocking, and both the hummingbird feeder & the wand that holds the hummingbird mobile blew over, it is not as bad as it can get. Every year there is at least one wind storm that raises enough dust that all the mountains surrounding Quartzsite disappear. 

By the way, Written In My Own Heart's Blood is 850 pages (she sure writes long books) but I'm at 11%, 18% by dinnertime, and there isn't much to do other than read. 

Dinner was a CedarLane Roasted Chile Relleno microwaved meal.

Until Tomorrow -
