WELCOME also to Encourage One Another who has a blog that has spiritual, inspirational posts. There is no information about the poster, so I don't know if you're an RVer, but Katie and I welcome you along on our travels, we're happy to have you join us! :)
There isn't much to take photos of so far here in Quartzsite, so I'm putting the leftovers from Hot Springs in this post.
On Wednesday morning, Katie and I packed up and moved. This is the bridge going out of the Hot Spring LTVA - the bridge we couldn't cross. When we drove out the way Carolyn showed me, it was a lot easier than the way we came in.
First we drove to Yuma to visit the Walmart. I was going to buy new chairs, etc., to replace the things I left at my site in Quartzsite in January. I planned to drive on to Quartzsite to dump and add fresh water, and see who was left at my old camp site area. After seeing the prices I'd have to pay for new campsite stuff, I decided I'd see if they saved my things.
After leaving the dump/water area, we drove up the road to our old area, and lots of the people who were there when I left are still here. I was able to retrieve my chairs and table, American flag with it's holder, my solar lights, etc. It really felt like coming home when I drove into Quartzsite. It's the place I've spent the most time, so I guess that makes sense.
It's been really windy here. Wednesday wasn't bad, but yesterday and today have been too windy to be outside. The sand is blowing, and other than taking Katie out, we are staying inside.
I'm still having generator problems. The generator is powering my electrical plugs, but not charging my batteries - again! This seems to be an ongoing problem, so I just called a place in Blythe, Empire Southwest, that was recommended by a few people here. I'll take The Palms in Monday morning, and see what they say. They charge $130 an hour for labor, so I hope they are able to diagnose and fix the problem quickly.
My solar system is working fine and doing exactly what I wanted it to do, which is to power the plugs in the front area of The Palms. I have my computer on all day, and can watch TV, too, if I'm in a place that gets good reception. But I still want to be able to charge the house batteries with the generator. If we have some cloudy days, we'll need that.
I'll let you know what happens with Empire Southwest. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Don't get blown away!
From me and Katie, have a great day, everyone! :)
