2021 - 2022 Trip To The Southwest, Day 100

 Friday, January 28, 2022, La Posa West LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 49

A warmer night, only down to 43°F. I almost got hit by an idiot on an ATV while walking to coffee this morning. Seems they don't believe pedestrians have the right of way crossing a driveway. He waved as I jumped out of his way.

Telemed was a bust. First, they moved it up while I was out looking at the gem & rock show. My AT&T data connection is poor enough that I knew I had to get back to the trailer & Verizon before there was any chance of making a connection. I made it back in time, but three different browsers insisted that they were not compatible with Telemed, as well as both phones. I suspect it was the slow internet connection since the browsers I was using were all listed as approved.

Anyhow, I called the office using my cell phone, got to talk with my doctor voice only, and the prescriptions were sent to Blythe. There was a bit of confusion at the office since I mentioned the 66°F temperature here in Arizona to my doctor, and when he went to OK the prescriptions, saw that they were for a pharmacy in California. The nurse called & I explained that Rite-Aid in Blythe, California was the closest drug store to Quartzsite, AZ. 

I did manage to get my 5 pound tank filled - 1.2 gallons of propane at the Mobil station. They are still at $3.80 per gallon. I also made a final trip to one of the RV sales tents outside the Big Tent. I picked up a 6' X 9' plastic mat for times when I don't need my usual 9' X 12'. It had to be a plain red one - no Kokopelli themed mats in the smaller size. 

An uneventful drive to Blythe to pick up my prescriptions, While our part of La Posa West is clearing out - there are 3 RVs in our "island", the area on the other side of Old Yuma Road is crammed with Class As. We have had clear skies for the last couple of days, but this afternoon fairly heavy clouds moved in. 

Dinner was an Impossible Burger & fruit salad.

Until Tomorrow -
