My location: Eight miles West of Bouse, Arizona just off Plomosa Drive
Much warmer this morning, but more clouds than previous mornings. Did catch the sun before the heavier clouds from the West covered the area.
This morning first thing, I decided to try the big generator one more time. Pushed the button and it started right up. I’ll be darn. Then I noticed I had the RV engine running and did not have the converter plugged in. I had unplugged it to run my inverter the other night and hadn’t plugged it back in yet. Maybe, the converter is drawing too much power when it first tries to start. Just glad it started. Now I can charge my five AGM batteries today. Was getting down to 12.2 volts.
We went on our morning walk and I got breakfast done and my blogs read. It was still cloudy and cool and we had a little sprinkle, so we just relaxed indoors for awhile.
Ain’t he sweet!
While reading my blogs, I happened to notice Barbara of Me and My Dog …and My RV was giving praises to a generator repairman in Quartzsite. I need generator repair or maintenance, so I am going to give Bob Drummer of Drummer’s Generator a visit tomorrow morning. Thanks Barbara! Very timely.
About noon, the sun came out and we were ready to go somewhere. After our long ride yesterday, Yuma didn’t want to go on a long one again today.
Al, of Travel with the Bayfield Bunch had mentioned that Yellowbird Road out of Bouse might be interesting, so that’s where we went. However, the road quickly turned into an ATV trail and got pretty rough. Yuma wasn’t up for that.
We crossed this beautiful wash full of red rock.
Looks like a cascading red rock waterfall.
It was a beautiful drive.
Before we turned around we did find a mine. This one went straight into the hillside about 30 feet.
Isn’t that Yuma something?
On our way back down, we could see Bouse off in the distance. It is a pretty location.
Came home and had a sandwich for lunch and rested in the nice warm sunlight.
It was around 4:30 when Yuma started to bark. A car was coming onto our site and being a good watchdog, Yuma lets me know when someone is coming.
It was Tom and Deb of Celebrating the Dance stopping by on their way to church in Quartzsite. We follow each other’s blog and I met them just for a few minutes in Borrego Springs, the morning I was leaving. They are staying at the Salome KOA Southeast of here, and are moving over this way tomorrow. Hope to see them again later this week. Maybe we can make it a longer visit.
Tried the generator again this evening, and by darn, it started again! Now it is time to watch The Walking Dead. My wife loves this show and got me hooked on it. Recently started their Spring season.
See you later.
