Only have a quarter of a tank of gas in the jeep, so I will conserve gas and just drive down to the end of the jeep road at the cow watering tank. Then Yuma and I will take a hike.
After breakfast, we are heading out toward the mountains. Not a long drive. About a half mile.
Somewhere between here and those rocks I managed to lose my cellphone. Yuma got a thorn in his mouth and he and I had a battle to get it out. If I can just find that spot again, I’m sure I’ll find the phone. It was right next to a mesquite bush. Too bad there are a million of them.
I just bought the Droid Turbo cellphone in December in Yuma, Arizona. Luckily I bought full coverage, so I will be able to replace it for free when I get to someplace with a Verizon store.
Lost it in the morning around 11 am and I spent the rest of the day walking around trying to find it without luck.
After searching for awhile, I came back to the motor home and emailed my son, Jim. Asked him to give me a half hour to get back out there and he would call my number every 10 minutes. Never heard a thing. Bummer.
Mid afternoon, I went down to Al and Kelly’s (Travel With the Bayfield Bunch)camp and borrowed Kelly’s phone. so I could call my number, hoping to hear the phone. Left Yuma at their place, so I could move faster. Unfortunately, it went to voice mail without ringing.
I searched until the sun was getting low in the sky and gave up. Yuma and Pheebs had fun while I was gone, but Kelly said he missed me. He whined a little and looked out the windows for me.
Al and Kelly are going to stop over in the morning and we will do a grid search. It is like finding a needle in a haystack, but we will give it a go.
Stay tuned. See you later.
