Location: Saddle Mountain BLM near Tonopah, Arizona
Last night I started having a scratchy throat and a cough. Slept okay for my first night in the White Lion, but unfortunately, I woke up with the feeling I was coming down with a cold. Never been sick before while on my trips to the southwest, so this is new to me.
Got up around 7:30 but felt very bad. Have a terrific headache and achy feeling. I sure hope it's just a cold and not something worse. Riley felt bad yesterday and rested all day. She says she feels better today.
Started my morning very slow. Just felt like I didn't want to do anything. That's what I did for most of the morning. I had planned to go with Deb and Riley to look for another campsite in another area because of the enormous number of flies around Saddle Mountain. There is evidently a chicken farm near by and they raise flies too. :))
I didn't feel well enough to go so stayed home to rest. Later in the morning, I felt a little better and decided to tackle the gun safe I have bolted into Miss Adventure. Got it unbolted, but it is too heavy for one person to move. So when Deb and Riley returned later in the afternoon, we were able to get it out and placed in one of the White Lion's bays.
Deb and Riley didn't find any better places to move, so we're going to stick around over the weekend. If I can get a few more things done, Miss Adventure will be ready on Monday to go to Phoenix.
Later in the day, I did one more thing that needed to be done before I put it up for sale. I moved two batteries and an inverter over to the White Lion. I use this setup to charge my small stuff, so I'm not using the house batteries. Charging two batteries with my solar panels is easier and quicker than charging the four house batteries.
I have only two more small projects to complete before I do the final clean-up. I've got the weekend to do that, so even though I feel terrible I got a lot done and Deb and Riley were a great help again. I don't know what I would do if those two friends weren't nearby.
As evening approaches, I feel really under the weather. I'm hoping I sleep well tonight and feel better in the morning. I did manage to get Dish setup so I could watch Gold Rush tonight. They actually had a new show on tonight. :))
Barely caught the sunset again tonight.
See you later.
