Location: Saddle Mountain BLM near Tonopah, Arizona
After posting to my blog last night at 4 o'clock, I went back to sleep till 7:30 and woke feeling refreshed. Little overcast, but the sun was peeking through the clouds. Very cool at 33 degrees and only getting to 56 today. Thank goodness, no wind to speak of.
Got up and had my crackers and coffee but didn't follow through with breakfast for some reason. I need to stop that because I paid for it later in the day.

Didn't do much all morning. Deb and Riley stopped by and we talked about our plans. They really needed to do laundry and I really needed to go to Walmart and put fuel in White Lion. So we decided to each go our own way today.
Yuma and I finally got going and our first stop was the Pilot Fuel Station in Tonopah. Deb had tried to explain to me earlier how the diesel pumps worked, but I didn't catch it all.
There were lots of trucks waiting to fuel when I got in line. Finally, when it was my turn, I put my credit card in the pumping station and it started asking a lot of questions. Got through them until it asked if I was using Defcon and I didn't know. Went inside and this very nice clerk helped even to the point of coming outside and pumping the fuel for me.
I had asked for $75 of diesel fuel because my gauge showed I had only a quarter tank of fuel. Tank holds 100 gallons so I figured that would be enough for now. However, it stopped pumping at 13 gallons. Seems the fuel gauge is not working properly and I'm going to have to get that resolved soon. It still shows only a little over a quarter tank on the gauge.
Yuma came with me, but he did not like it one bit. He whined the whole way to Walmart and all the way back. Walmart is located in Buckeye about 25 miles from camp. I had no problem driving and pretty much stayed around 60 mph. Needless to say a lot of people passed me by because the speed limit is 75 mph.
I even wandered around the mall parking lot looking for Walmart and didn't have any problems. Not having the Jeep hitched to the back is a real help though. Makes things a lot easier. Came out of the store and there was Yuma waiting for me in the driver's seat.
Got back around 3 o'clock and Deb and Riley showed up not long after.
We all were tired and hungry, so decided nothing else was going to happen today. I had bought some bread and luncheon meat. I am going to start eating lunch to keep from being so hungry at the end of the day.
For some reason I am very tired today, so all I did was move the two motorhomes close together in preparation for tomorrow's big moving transfer. Around 6 o'clock I put my pajamas on and just laid in bed getting some rest. Now, I'm finishing my post and will have some dinner and hit the sack early tonight. I have so many loose ends to take care of I'm feeling a little bewildered. Oh well, it will all work out in the end I hope.
See you later.
