Location: Dome Rock Road in Quartzsite, Arizona
Last night was a little noisier than I like. Sounded like jets taking off when those big trucks would cross the bridge on I-10.
Had a leisurely breakfast and just threw everything into the MH since I will just be taking it all out again real soon. Wasn't in a rush to leave since we had less than 20 miles to travel today. Best kind of traveling! It was, however, scenic because we went through the Dome Rock Mountains.
|Finally back in my favorite state of Arizona.|
Then we turned onto Dome Rock Road West and in less than two miles we pulled into the first vacant site I found. Still closer to I-10 than I prefer, but the noise will be minimal. I think we'll like it here. Close to Quartzsite, but away from the madding crowds.

Took a little time to set-up and look around and then settled in for the rest of the morning. But around 1 o'clock I just couldn't wait around any longer. You see, I've had my eye on this particular motor home for sale in Quartzsite for awhile. Just couldn't get it out of my head.
As we were driving to see it, I told myself that if the pictures were touched up and it really didn't look like them, I would just forget it and go no further. This winter particularly, I have gotten tired of just not having the space to store anything or just plain stretch out. Don't tell Dolly about my little side excursion today. Not sure what her reaction would be.
Now, I have to tell you, it is not a new motor home by any means. It's a 1999 Safari Serengetti. You know, the ones with the beautiful African paintings on the back you see once in awhile driving down the road.
Just what one old man and his dog needs! A 40 footer with a 330 HP Cat diesel engine and one slide. No downsizing for me, No Siree! I want legroom and lots of storage space to boot. Never know, Dolly may boot me out of the house and I'll be living in it full-time. :)) Now I've got to show you the pictures I took of it today.
Thinking of naming it the "White Lion". I know, it's a white tiger, but I'm a Leo and that's just a thought. Let me know if I'm breaking all naming rules and I won't do it.

|Look at the size of that thing.|
|Little over the top for my taste but, who knows. Maybe it's just what Dolly wants. :))|
I didn't get a picture of the washer/dryer combo and the separate bathroom area. Does have a big tub/shower combo which I like.
|Room enough to walk around to change sheets. I hate changing the sheets in this MH. :(( So, I don't do it.|
Oh well, I'm just dreaming. Yuma doesn't mind getting dirt and hair in our small little MH. And this may be last year of traveling anyway. You know, bla bla bla. The blas are for all the reasons I should drop this whole idea.
It was time to get out of there and find Tom and Deb. I had gotten an invite to come to their "Happy Hour" at 3 o'clock. Heck, I just got done with breakfast and they're thinking about Happy Hour already. But, I have to remember, I've lost an hour of life by leaving California lazy time.
Oh, oh! Houston, I have a problem. I'm not sure where they are staying and this small town is now the size of a city. My cellphone battery went dead before I left and I left it to charge never thinking I would not be able to see their beautiful black and yellow "Stinger Bee" in the thousands of motorhomes scattered everywhere in this desert.
So, since I couldn't call and ask for directions, I wandered around for about an hour through various RV parks. Finally, gave up and Yuma and I went home in defeat. Oh, the crowds in "Q"!
Texted Deb with my failed efforts and she said the invitation would stand for one more day, but only one. So, tomorrow it is. Yuma and I relaxed till the sun set and then back to the grind of blogs and dinner.

See you later.
