Sunday, February 25, 2018 – Location: Saddle Mountain near Tonopah, Arizona
Today was just beautiful again. Cold at night. Got down to 32 degrees early this morning, but as soon as the sun came up, it warmed up.
Thought about running into Buckeye to the Walmart for groceries, but since I’m heading that way in the morning, why waste the time and gas. So I sat around and drank my coffee and did nothing.
A couple came by the RV this morning and I told them where the petroglyphs were. I should get paid for doing this! They didn’t know there were any. They are new full timers having retired early and sold their home. This is their first winter on the road in their trailer and a motorcycle. They have a website named 2 Hearts & 2 Wheels.
Did drive over to Deb and Riley’s place after breakfast, but they weren’t home. They are heading out tomorrow also, so we decided to head east together for a bit. Got a new place in mind, but you’ll have to wait and see.
Around two o’clock went back over and they were home. We made travel plans and I let them know I was going to move down from the mountain today in case I got stuck on the way down.
Went back to my MH and quickly packed and drove the MH about half mile down the mountain, walked back up and drove the Jeep down. Didn’t have any problems but did leave several deep gashes in the gravel where the hitch slid along. Did that one more time then found a site to stay for the night close to the blacktop, W. Courthouse Road. Finally! A flat spot.
I’m settled in for the night. Now I have to put the Dish back up. Earlier today, Dolly told me “Walking Dead” starts their season tonight. This is a TV program Dolly got me hooked on several year ago, so got to watch that tonight. Got my alarm set so I don’t forget.
Don’t have many pictures tonight. Just didn’t go anywhere today.
The other day when I was in Tonopah, I did see several other things worth mentioning. If you are in the market for a really old Willys Jeep, they have one for sale there. About as basic as they come. Didn’t have a price and I didn’t ask. Not in the market myself. I thought my Jeep was small, but this thing is about half the size of mine.
Tonopah also has a Hot Spring 1/4 mile down the road. Looked a little rough, but who knows. I didn’t go inside to find out.
And they have a cantina also. Oscar’s Place. Serves Mexican food and I bet it’s good.
A Ranch and Land Office if you’re interested in living here.
And I even saw some places you could grab cheap. Fixer upper!
Time for “Walking Dead” and dinner.
See you later.
