This morning Yuma and I were up and taking our walk. I'm excited because today is move day! 😄 We have been on Ogilby Road for 26 days, almost twice our limit of 14 days. First time I've done this.
We had a leisurely breakfast laying out in the sun. It is beautiful out and going to be hot by afternoon. No clouds or wind and lots of sun today.
While packing, a ranger from the Bureau of Land Management finally made his first appearance at every campsite in the area checking to see if they have exceeded their 14 day stay. If so, he asked them to pack and leave. Luckily, when he stopped by my place we were able to tell him we were heading out today. Great timing! 😁
We were on the move a little after noon. The first stop was at the Dunes to take on fresh water. Next, we stopped at the service station a few miles towards Yuma and dumped our gray and black tanks.
Then we were on our way through Yuma to hwy 95 heading towards Quartzite. Nick was following in the Jeep. But we didn't even make it out of Yuma.
Tonight is Monday night football and we wanted to make sure we could get local channels. Only a short drive from the west side of Yuma to the east side today.
We also need to stop at Walmart and Lowes tomorrow to prepare for a couple of weeks at Palm Canyon. It's about an hour north of here and we will head that way sometime tomorrow.
Got to the BLM land right next to the VFW hall right at 2:45 and set up the TV antenna for a one night stay.
It is a very hot day today so we sat back on the shady side of the White Lion and relaxed to keep cool. There is a live band going on at the VFW and they were playing the songs from my younger days. Probably a bunch of old Vets in there. 😀 They quit at 4 o'clock and everyone left. Probably bedtime.
When I went in to get a cool water out of the fridge I was shocked to see the temperature was 56 degrees. Something needs to be done now! 😬
Time for open surgery! When I was doing research on the Internet when I was thawing out the fridge previously, I found a YouTube video showing me how to take the back of the fridge off and expose the fan and the cooling coils behind it.
Didn't look hard, so that's what I did. Didn't take long, just three screws hold it on. I was shocked to see all the ice back there! 😱😱
