Yeah, I guess you don't want to hear that since you left Quartzsite I've been sitting under those star in shorts and a t-shirt instead of hoodies and gloves.  Hit 80 here yesterday.   8)

Yeah...I don't really want to know that >:( >:(...I knew it was going to warm up over the next couple of days. But the wife said "We need to head home" ...So I put my foot down....And started packing up the TT ;D

Then I probably don't want to mention that we left most of the windows in the coach open all night, either.  Currently 64* at 0645.

That's abut the same temperatures we're having at home except for the noise of cars thumping the bass at all hours of the night and the view of the stars are washed out by all the lights of living in town.

Ohh, dont tell him that. It might make him cry.

It almost did make me cry...That was the most relaxing place I've been in a long time

Good, and I wont mention I did the same and its 71 right now in Brownsville. :D

I see you have a little bit of a mean streak as well ;D ;D

Glad your trip went good Gizmo100.  I agree about the forum, I'm trying to edjumakate myself for possible long seasonal trips in a few years.  I like hearing your Ford worked well, I'm considering an upgrade to my 05 YukonXL, just not sure I want a pick-up, yet the SUVs just don't have the same payloads any more.  Time to clean up your TT and start planning your next adventure.  I have several 4 day weekends planned in state parks this summer, and one to Land between the Lakes for a week, but nothing west this summer.

If you do a pickup make sure you get a cover for the bed. It really makes a difference on the MPG's. Plus the dry storage. We are slowly working on getting the TT cleaned out and ready for our next adventure. I also have a ton of yard work to get done. And both the TV and the TT need a bath. It makes me wonder why I'm sitting on butt playing on this computer.

Good to hear you both enjoyed it, there is nothing like it.  ;D

Thanks Jackie..I'll have some more information for you as I soon as I get the new glasses. This typing thing can be a bit of a challenge right now. Hopefully sometime next week.

I know right? I love it for that. Nothing like sitting out under the bright stars and hearing nothing. I get tired of so much everyday noise of being among too many people.

We went to Dorothy and Toto's yesterday for an ice cream.  They mentioned that they will be closing shop for the year on either the 17th or the 24th of this month.  They say once the temp gets over 90 their freezers can't keep the ice cream hard enough to sell. 
My updated departure date of the Quartzsite area is now Mar. 25th...or earlier.  Unfortunately, the road to our campground for the summer is still under a couple of feet of snow and they got more yesterday.

While staying in the Tonto Forest I got to experience something I never thought I would see in the desert ...SNOW
I have been snowed on in the desert several times. And even in May and June!!!

It's amazing how nice that truck and trailer look considering how dirty both of them were. I did get the truck washed. The trailer will have to wait until we get back home...But Thanks.
Anytime you photograph dirty vehicles or ugly women it is best to do it at night. 8)

I think I'll just stick with not taking pictures of ugly women............But I'll remember the tip for my Truck ;D
