Slept off and on last night, but felt ready to take on the day around 8 this morning. It is sunny with a light breeze and cool. Calling for a high in the mid 50s today. Not what I want, but I'll take it.

Everyone had plans for the morning. Shopping, laundry and I had to start packing for my next journey eastward tomorrow. I had the easiest job, so I started out by lying around in the sun. It actually felt quite warm in the sun as the day progressed.
Only traveling a couple hours tomorrow, but I want to start early, just in case. I need everything before leaving Quartzsite. Propane, water and dump, so that will take at least an hour.
I slowly packed and I also took another walk around the area. I wonder if I will ever be back here again. I'm thinking that at every campsite, but not too worried. I've had a great run and if this is my last trip west, I'm ready to accept it.

I've been coming here for many winters, but this is the first time I took the opportunity to really see the area. Quartzsite is a two exit town on I-10 in the La Paz Valley between two mountain ranges. It is a beautiful place. So different than Bloomington, Illinois.
The hard part is leaving the friends I've made over the years as I've become more sociable. I know my blogging will cease as it has every summer in the past. Hard to write about the excitement of watching corn and soybeans grow.
Poor Yuma. He has really become a social butterfly these last few years. This is the first time we have stayed with fellow travelers for most of the winter and Yuma loves his friends.
Thanks for stopping by.
