Don't you just love these clever water towers? They are at the edge of the parking lot where the big tent will be in January. A family - Mom, Dad and Child. Very cute, and you can't miss them when you're driving past - what a cool way to advertise. I don't know if they are full of water, but I'd bet during the Quartzsite Big Tent event, they are.
I got some new chairs a couple of days ago - from K & B Sales on Khuen Street - $39.99 each, and $87.97 including tax for two. (High sales taxes here at Quartzsite - which I don't mind at all. We RVers who come in for brief periods of time, or even the whole season, are using all the facilities, roads, etc., and paying no taxes to the town, so the sales tax is the only way we can help out, and that's fine with me. First time I've happily paid a tax.) So far I'm really liking the chairs.
They have a side table that folds down when not in use:
And the other side has a number of storage compartments attached - for a Kindle, cell phone, camera, etc. Two are fastened closed with Velcro, one zips and the largest is open at the top.
I've put them on my new rug, an 6 x 8 I think it is. Just the right size for my small camp, and it'll be easier to store when not in use. I had a larger one last year, but I gave it away. It was just too big to store. This rug has some brown touches in the center flowers and they match the chairs - wasn't that good luck!
Merry Christmas to me! :)
Oh yeah, this is kind of embarrassing, but I forgot to tell you. Katie and I moved camp again. I decided I wanted to stay in this area, but I really wanted to get TV if I'm going to stay here for months. So the other day when I left camp to fill my water tank, Katie and I drove around in this area, testing for signals, driving on, testing again, etc. We finally found a spot that has a pretty good signal, and so I'm nesting now. Everything is out, the new rug is "nailed" down to the desert floor so it won't blow away, and we are settled. We are a little ways from the Dingbats' camp, but I can see them and we go down once or twice a day to visit around the campfire.
Welcome to our newest Followers:
And Wendy's trip log - Wendy isn't an RVer, but she has a blog that she's hoping will keep her creating and connecting with others. She lives with her husband, kids and dog Upstate NY. Wendy is an independent consultant for Close To My Heart scrapbooking and crafting supplies (that's her passion) and as a therapist for her day job. I'm a scrapbooker, too - but with space being an issue in my small motor home, I'm loving digital scrapbooking for now. It must be fun working with Close to My Heart. Thanks for following me and Katie on our travels.
Welcome aboard to you both!
From me and Katie, have a great Thursday, everyone! :)
