Today is move day. The rains that have hit Yuma to the West is heading this way and wanted to get off Darby Well Road before the dust turns to mud. Hate to leave, but it is time to go. Hope I make it back here again sometime.
I got up around 8:30 and spent way too long going through my breakfast routine as it turned out. We had packed the night before so all I had to do was hook up the Jeep.
We headed into Ajo around 12:30 and I had forgotten how long it takes to dump and take on propane and water. By the time we left Ajo, it was 1:30. I had planned on getting into Yuma around 3 o'clock, but it is a two and a half hour drive, so it looks more like 4 o'clock now.
Took highway 85 North through an Immigration check point to Gila Bend. Last one for awhile.
I had planned on stocking up with supplies at Walmart before finding a place to stay for the night, but it was already near 5 o'clock by the time I arrived. I decided to just pick up a few items and do the majority of the shopping tomorrow morning. It was a madhouse at Walmart. I walked in and saw the huge lines and walked back out again.
We filled the MH with gas and headed North on highway 95 towards the Yuma Proving Grounds. It was getting dark and raining just a little.
Made a left and headed towards the North entrance to Mittry Lake about six miles West. As I turned left into the entrance, it was still sprinkling but the sun was trying to break as it was setting.
The road is like a wash board most of the way, so didn't go too far and pulled into the first place that was big enough to get me off the road. Took a few shots of the dying sun over Lake Mittry.
Quickly set up camp and got the Dish working so I could watch the Green Bay and Minnesota game while fixing dinner. If GB wins tonight I will win the family pool for the first time this season. My son Ben has hogged the wins with six this season.
Long day. See you later.
