Ogilby Road west of Yuma, Arizona
Didn't sleep as well as I thought I would for as late as I stayed up. I was up around 7:30 to finish packing and get out of the shooting range. I loved my spot on the lake, but Yuma wasn't having anymore of this recreational duck hunting.
Didn't eat breakfast, thinking I would do it later and finally it just didn't happen. As soon as the sun was up, I finished putting things away and hooked up the Jeep. As daylight got underway I was done and took the picture of my sand debacle.
|A big mess.|
|Had a flyover celebrating my accomplishment last night.|
About 9 o'clock, we left Mittry Lake and headed out to do our normal moving process. Dumped tanks, took on water and propane. Then we went into Yuma and stopped at a smaller Walmart Market on the west side of town that Elva had recommended. Much less crowded, so thank you Elva. Filled the MH with gas at Arizona prices. :))
It was 1:15 by the time I was done with all of this and heading about 15 miles West on I-8 to Ogilby Road. I had good directions from Deb as to where the cookout was happening, but I screwed it up. Turned on American Girl Mine Road and followed it about three miles to a locked gate at the entrance.
Of course, no turn around area, so unhooked the Jeep and got the MH turned around and hooked the Jeep back on. I hate it when this happens. Now I'm really tired and hungry!
Deb called and gave me directions again and this time she was standing roadside waiting. I felt a little embarrassed but glad to be closer to a resting place and food.
Got set up and cleaned up with barely a minute to spare for our three o'clock cookout and I wasn't going to be late for that. Didn't get any pictures of the food because I was too busy eating.
Afterward we all sat out in the sun until it got dark chatting and having a good time.
Deb ran down someone walking by and asked if she would take a group picture and she did. The sun gave us all a radiant look as it sank into the western clear sky. Poor Yuma was back at the RV resting.
See you later.
