Moved very slowly this morning for some reason. Didn’t get out of bed till 8:30. By the time I finished all my morning duties, got packed and hooked up the Jeep, it was noon. Still had to dump tanks, take on water, get gas and stock up on groceries before moving into California for the next month.
The weather today is going to be great. Yesterday, we had a high of 62 with a cool north breeze. Today, we’re looking at a nice warm 72 degrees with westerly winds. Low tonight of 50. That’s great.
Where does that guy get all this energy so early in the morning?
All ready to leave Mittry Lake behind.
Went up to the Imperial Dam to get the tanks done, then stopped on the west edge of Yuma, just inside the Arizona line to fill the MH and then ran on up to the Walmart on the west side to stock up on groceries.
By this time, it was after 3:30 and I couldn’t see heading into California so late. Decided to just Walmart it for the night right here. They have an Auto Center here and I am still having problems with losing air in that one back tire, so decided to run up there and have them check it out.
Thought it was going to be a quick in and out, but not to be. The guy that does dually tires came out to look and the first thing he saw was that I was missing a lug nut. They can’t touch the RV without all the lug nuts being in place and they don’t carry that size lug nut.
Bummer! I am glad they caught the missing lug nut, but too bad they couldn’t work on the tire. Tomorrow, I will run down to a tire repair shop that has the lug nut and have them look at why I’m losing air. I crawled under the RV and looked for a nail, but nothing. I think I have a bad valve stem, but I do need to get it fixed before heading out to the California boonies.
So, get a good night’s sleep and do a little running around in the morning and hopefully get the tire problem resolved once and for all. Hopefully, I will still have plenty of time to make it to Borrego Springs before nightfall. For doing nothing all day, I sure am tired.
That Yuma! He always worries that Daddy’s going to leave him!
See you later.
