Lousy Internet

Quartzsite, AZ  High 57  Low 32

We are still in Quartzsite and my internet connection seems to get worse every day. Hopefully this will post. I also haven’t been able to read very many blogs. I keep getting knocked off the internet. So I am going to have to catch up with everybody when we get back to AJ.

Almost everybody from our group has moved out. Several of them went to Plamosa Road which is a free parking area north of Q. (It costs $40 for two weeks here.) We’ve been waiting for the correct hitch bolts to arrive at General Delivery in Blythe, CA so we decided to just stay put so Jim can finish fixing the hitch.

The bolts came in and Jim said it shouldn’t take more than a day to get everything done on the hitch.

It rained and rained and rained some more for a couple of days. Then we had a beautiful day and now it’s cold and windy again. The weather is supposed to start improving in a couple of days. I sure hope so.

We also had to dump. This is what the dump line has been like for about the last week. We were lucky and it only took us about an hour and a half. Notice that gray sky.

The storm clouds have made for some beautiful cloud formations and sunsets. The moon is also beautiful.

I’m not going to try and publish this to my blog. Fingers crossed.

  12. Well, the photo of that potty line-up leaves me just a little weak kneed. I would probably hold my breath & drive to Yuma or Alaska to dump........ Oh Dear:((

  14. We noticed a big difference between LaPosa and Plomosa with internet. It was almost nonexistent there and pretty dang good here.

  16. I'm getting lousy internet in downtown Parker, too. It was really good at Plamosa Road. I might go back. I like good internet but I also want electricity. Decisions; decisions.

  17. I hope that the dump line is smaller now that I have to dump. I have waited several times in those 1 1/2 hour lines over the years.

  19. Wasn't that a special sky at that sunset? Awesome. Sorry that we had to part so early, should liked to have been longer. But I hope to see you all again in the future. Thanks for having us at your bon-fires! By the way - I never got that dream ice cream. :((

  21. Just realized I could find blog addressees from my own blog roll. On an iPhone so can't (or don't know how) to post. Have missed reading, but reading on the iPhone is a challenge. I was able to get to Sherry and David's blog last night to hear their good news, and Donna and Russ today, and you. Glad to find you And Jim well, Sandie. It's been a long haul and still have far to go but can't wait to be able to sit to use the computer. Hope you won't mind if I send my love to all the bloggers I read-I know this is a gathering place. :)

  24. I check the dump station line ups and figure out a good time to get there with minimal wait, our longest was 25 minutes over the years. Good to get that hitch fixed.
