Location: BLM near Winterhaven, California
Woke up at 8 o'clock on this leap day morning and the sun was shining and already nice outside. I even slept with the bedroom window open last night, it was so nice. No wind and calling for another warm day. So glad to have an extra day here in the Southwest.
Couldn't stay inside after Yuma's walk, so sat outside reading my blogs, drinking coffee and just plain laying back and enjoying the beautiful morning.
I finally got moving around 10:30, because I knew I had to go into Yuma to do some shopping. Without a fridge, I have to go to the store more often.
At 11 o'clock I headed out leaving Yuma at home because of the heat. I first googled and followed the map to the trucking center that will be doing my oil change on Monday morning. Didn't want to wander around if I don't have too. Driving this huge thing with the Jeep attached is still a little daunting.
After that I got some gas for the Jeep and headed for Walmart to do my shopping. I'm either getting used to the city of Yuma or the crowds have thinned. I felt very comfortable shopping and finding the stuff I needed.
After shopping I stopped at the water kiosk in the Walmart parking lot. You bring your own containers and it's 25 cents a gallon or 5 gallons for $1.00. For those of you that have never seen one:
Got home at 1:30 and put everything away by 2 o'clock. Hey Steve, I bought a vacuum cleaner.
Went with a small one because I blew all my money on the solar kit. :)) Hopefully, this one will do the job. Not that I have a huge place to vacuum.
Had a couple of hotdogs for lunch and some chips and dip with a coke. By this time it was nearing 3 o'clock and time to run up to Ken and Kim's place for Happy Hour. Dean and Cheri are coming too so there are five of us today. Bill and Patsy moved further North this morning.

Finally got smart and put my camera on self-timer so I could include myself. We had a great time. Learned more about how Dean and Cheri's path led them here today and they were interested in our past adventures. They will soon be heading to Borrego Springs, so we filled them in on many of the things they will want to do while there.
Right at 5 o'clock, Yuma started to whine telling me it was time to go home. Uncanny how he can tell time. He was a perfect gentleman and just laid at my feet the entire two hours.
Once home, Yuma and I took a nice long walk till the sun set. Doesn't Yuma look regal!
Such a beautiful evening. Love it when it's warm and there is no wind.

Time to finish up my post, get some dinner for us and maybe a little TV before going to bed.
Hope you had a nice relaxing Leap Day too. See you later.
