Location: Stone Cabin on highway 95, Arizona
First thing on the agenda this morning was to call Verizon and get my phone number changed. Now that I know what the problem is, I could tell them and they soon got me going in the right direction.
My problem was this: My first Verizon purchase was a MIFI so it was that phone number was the owner of my account. Since my purchase they made changes and no longer allowed me to log into my MIFI to make ownership changes like changing phone numbers. Once I figured that out they knew what to do to change ownership of the account to my phone number so I could change my phone number. Took about an hour, but got it done and I now have a new phone number. Yeah!
It rained all night. This is what I woke up to.
Water everywhere! Still raining most of the morning, so Yuma and I had our normal leisurely breakfast. Around 11 o'clock the rain stopped and I decided it was time to make a dash out of town. We quickly got ready to roll and headed towards highway 95 around noon.
Unfortunately, the rain didn't stop. Instead it started raining quite hard again as we traveled North on 95.
Luckily, we are not going very far today. Only about 65 miles. My plan was to find a site along Palm Canyon Road, but this rain has caused me concern. The normal hard ground could be very soft with water saturation. By the time I got to the Border Patrol Checkpoint,
I decided to pull into the Stone Cabin parking area for the night. It is within sight of the checkpoint.
It was raining hard off and on and the wind was blowing hard through the mountain pass. I wasn't going to unhook the Jeep and scout the area with this bad weather. :(( Yuma and I had our lunch and laid on the bed listening to the rain and wind all afternoon. I was tired and needed the rest.

Those of you who travel hwy 95 from Yuma to Quartzsite are familiar with this landmark. Dolly and I stopped here our first year when a gentleman opened a hamburger place here. He had a dream, but unfortunately with no water in the area, it failed and time and weather is doing its job on the old place.

It is still raining outside and the gusts are enough to rock the WL at times. Looking forward to the morning though. It is supposed to clear up by sunrise. I'm having no trouble maintaining my batteries today and should have plenty of power for my needs this evening. Having lots of solar panel power certainly helps on cloudy days.
As I was typing, my phone put out an emergency flood warning alert for the entire area telling us to avoid flooded areas. First time I've gotten an emergency warning beep on my phone. Interesting.
Hopefully, I'll find a nice hard piece of ground around here in the morning and we will move. Staying here isn't a bad option for the night. The highway goes dead as the darkness closes in. Much quieter than busy 32nd Street where I have been living.

Time for a little dinner and soon after to bed. Dreaming of sunshine :))
Stay dry out there. See you later.
