We packed up early and headed on down the road:
In January, this intersection will be packed!
We are here too early – La Mesa RV isn’t even here:
Empty Tyson Wells – In January, this will be filled with over 100 vendors:
Aren’t they cute – :
The “Big Tent” space:
Continuing our journey south to Yuma:
What continues to amaze me year after year is that we drive south of Quartzsite and it is desert for over 50 miles. Then we round corner and it is green…
And Cotton Bales:
The Little Church:
In Yuma, they plant and harvest three times because of the ideal growing conditions. This field is ready to go:
And this one is in the process:
We arrived at the Escape Park, KOFA, right before lunch and settled into a site on the outer wall. We have been on their list to get a lot for a few years and we are now number 9 on that list. Before this, we only spent one night here in boondocking a few years ago so we figured we better spend some time here to see if we like it.
The other reason we are here is to do some upgrading in our motorhome. So after lunch, we went to Furniture Warehouse and ordered theater seating (two recliners with a compartment/cup holders in between). On Monday, it will be delivered and they will take our old couch. We are also hoping to reupholster our captain’s chairs and either get new dinette cushions or reupholster our original ones. I have purchased new curtains but they need to be hemmed yet. With the left over material, I hope to make a dash cover. For now, we are leaving the flooring alone because I am not sure how I want it to look.
We also hope to see friends who are making their way south. It should be fun. . We think we are staying here for a month and then head to our lot in Casa Grande but you never know – plans can change tomorrow – LOL!
Stats for today:
Miles Traveled: 132 Miles
California: Parker Dam Road; SR-62
Arizona: SR-95; Avenue 3E; E County 17th Street
Gas – $2.78/gallon at Sam’s Club in Yuma – WOW!!!

I spent today with my friend, Kay. We met Kay and Norval a few years ago in Quartzsite and have stayed in touch since then. Norval had a bad stroke three years ago and has not been able to travel. Kay came down for a week with her friend, Brenda, and we are so glad we were able to connect. Last year, Andy and I went to see them in Alberta, Canada, so it was great to spend the day with her, getting caught up, laughing, crying and hugging. What a wonderful day – Thank you Kay.
What a wonderful day –
I will not be blogging daily unless we play tourist but I will be blogging weekly. So until then, enjoy today.
