Another sunny day when I got up at 8 this morning. Wasn't sure what to do today. I'm low on a lot of grocery items so I was thinking I would move to Yuma. But after texting with Dolly, I made the decision, I would head towards Borrego Springs, California instead.
First thing I did was to go north on hwy 95 to the Pit Stop in Quartzsite to get propane, water and dump the tanks.
Surprised the Big Tent is still standing.
After those choirs, I stopped and filled the White Lion and the Jeep. By this time it is 3 o'clock.
Heading down into the Colorado River Valley. Crossing the Colorado River into California.
My plan is to drive I-10 to Blythe, California. Then exit and take hwy 78 to Black Mountain Rd and hopefully, spend the night there. Peter, one of my readers mentioned I could take the Jeep to the top of the mountain to where all the communication towers are. Beautiful views from up there.
Things didn't work as planned though. As I made a turn in the road, I suddenly saw the sign to Black Mountain Road, but I was moving too fast to catch the turn. Then I thought I would find a place to turn around but it was a number of miles before I did and I just decided to go on to Glamis in the sand dunes and spend the night there.
Nope! No overnight camping in Glamis, so kept on trucking looking for anywhere to camp for the night. By the time I stopped for the night, I was in Brawley, California at the Walmart. Now it is 5:30 Pacific time and the sun is going down.
Not the best planned travel day, but I'm in for the night. Just barely made it here before running out of sunlight. Had a nice dinner and when done with this post, Yuma and I are going to bed.
At least I'll be ready for shopping in the morning and it is only a little over an hour to Borrego Springs from here. I just hope I can find a decent place to park when I get there. We'll know soon enough.
See you later.
