Today is the day! I was up around 7 o'clock and quickly got my coffee and fed the Yuma. Deb was outside looking for the sunrise. It is finally shorts weather once again. Sunny, very little breeze and a high of 73 degrees predicted today. By 8 o'clock all of us were sitting around enjoying our beverages and chatting.

Poor Jim, has to head back into Los Algodones this morning for another dentist appointment. Won't be as bad as yesterday. They were off at 9:30.They have a huge camper on that huge truck. We said our goodbyes to Jim and Barb and off they headed to Mexico. See you in Quartzsite next week.
I made a quick dash over to the White Lion and started filling the last little bit of oil and additive to top off the engine. Then, I made sure everything was safe to travel and off Yuma and I headed to the sand dunes rest area for water. The WL started easily, just like the old days and that is a relief. Still smokes, but now out the side near the exhaust pipe, so no more smoke getting up into the fan and radiator.

It was about 15 miles to the rest area and being Saturday, the dune buggies were on the dunes.We filled the WL with 75 gallons of water and also filled four 4 gallon plastic containers. I turned off the engine while filling and then moved out of the water area and shut down to just enjoy the sand dune activity for a bit. Yuma found more friends.
Thanks for stopping by.
