Location: West Dome Rock Road near Quartzsite, Arizona
Been waking up around 4:30 lately. After yesterday's hard on the hands work, I took a couple of Tylenol and was able to sleep till 7 o'clock. Terrible having arthritis in my hands, but it is what it is.
I have been communicating with Diana at State Farm back home to get an insurance application signed and back to her, but I wasn't getting the email with the attachment on my cellphone email app. Finally, I checked my email using my laptop and there it was. Not sure what's going on, but my email app has stopped working for some reason.
After breakfast, I drove down to RV LifeStyles
and Kenny printed the document for me and I signed it and he scanned it back into the computer and I sent it back to Diana. Now the White Lion is insured.

Before leaving I received a text from Deb saying they were coming into town and asked if they could stop by for a visit around 1 o'clock.
When I got back from town, I only wanted to clean the one step that is carpeted. I did that and it came out beautifully. I had kept a piece of carpet over it since owning the MH and that kept the original carpet in good shape.
Sure enough Deb and Riley stopped by for visit.
Main topic of course was the White Lion. I'm starting to get excited with anticipation. When I was with Kenny, he told me that it looked like the motorhome would be ready for my inspection tomorrow unless something major came up. Said he would call later to let me know. I've heard that line before.

They didn't stay long but it was very nice of them to stop by. I'm pretty keyed up right now and their visit gave me a chance to relax and enjoy their company. Yuma was happy Riley came to visit him.
Soon they were on there way back to the Palm Canyon area south of Quartzsite on highway 95.
Soon after Deb and Riley left, I couldn't believe it. The phone rang and it was Kenny calling. He said the motorhome was ready for my post purchase inspection and Suzie would be there at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. This will be interesting. There is a lot to go over and may run into Sunday. I'm not going to let them rush me.
Yuma and I rested for awhile and late in the afternoon, he started whining to let me know he wanted to go somewhere. I decided to take a drive up toward Dome Rock just across the road.
|Stopped at a camping site at the base.|
|Drove as far as I felt comfortable. Stopped to see if there is a place to turn around above. Otherwise I will have to back out. Walked up to the first white mine tailings above.|

|Yuma looking across the valley to the northeast.|
|There is a mine down there, but we are not going into it.|
|Looking east across the valley towards Quartzsite in the distance. I see Miss Adventure down there.|
|Won't make it to the top today. More tailings above.|
|Looking southeast towards the Kofa Mountains. Palm Canyon is in the large mountain in the left center. Sun is setting. We better get moving.|
|I can definitely see Miss Adventure now. And look at all the little fiberglass trailers down there. Part of their convention this weekend.|
|There is Miss Adventure at top right.|
|One of the Dome Rock Mountains north of us across I-10. See how small that semi looks on the interstate below.|

Time for dinner and Gold Rush then hopefully a good night's sleep. See you later.
