After breakfast this morning, I went into Yuma to the Walmart to pick up supplies for my travel day tomorrow. On my way, I drove through Winterhaven to have a quick look. Winterhaven is a small town just across the Colorado River from Yuma.
Dolly and I lived in Winter Haven, Florida back in the 60’s and early 70’s where I first started with State Farm Insurance Companies.
Yuma went with me and stayed in the back of the jeep and behaved himself waiting for me to return. They have some covered parking and I parked in the shade to make sure he didn’t get hot. Only about 68 degrees so wasn’t really concerned.
Got my shopping done quickly and was on my way to get gas for the jeep and back to the MH. Gas was $1.86. Can’t beat that.
Went over to my neighbors and put everything back together, checked everything to make sure they were clean and tight. Tried to start it one more time and all I heard was the click of the solenoid. Time to call a real mechanic. I tried my best but failed to get the van started. Time for me to move on.
Yuma is one tired puppy tonight after all that walking.
Tomorrow morning, I will be on my way up highway 95 heading towards Quartzsite. May stay on one of the side roads north of here just to have one or two nights away from all the people that are in the Quartzsite area. Will play it by ear.
See you later.
