Apache Junction, AZ High 104 Low 72
Yes, we finally left Apache Junction. Jim passed all his tests with flying colors, we tucked the boat safely under John and Peg’s carport and finally got everything moved into the Bungalow. Then we summerized the fifth wheel – insulation in all the windows, a big trash can full of water in the shower, batteries and propane turned off, etc.
And, of course, we had to pick the hottest day of the year to get everything done. I made sure we got my chocolate peanut clusters moved over to the Bungalow. You know, the important stuff.
We survived the move and got on the road about 1:30. Pulled into the Black Rock RV Village in Brenda, AZ about 4:30. First order of business was to get plugged in and get the air running. It was HOT in the rig. In fact it was so hot, that my peanut clusters were a melted glob. Think I’ll make sure they are in the fridge tomorrow.
Ginny made us some plastic canvas boxes for our freezer and Jim discovered they made really good containers for his diabetes medicine. We bought the stuff and he got to work making two more of them. They weren’t quite as easy to make as he thought and he told me he knew Ginny really loved us to go to all that work to make three of them for us.
This RV park has some of the longest sites I have ever seen. Since it’s off season the price is right – $20.55 a night including taxes. Brenda, AZ is about 15 miles east of Quartzsite. It is a perfect spot for us to relax for a day and do nothing.
Well, I’m doing nothing. Jim is helping Key fix a couple of things on his rig. We first met Key when a bunch of RVers got together for lunch. Since then we have kept in touch and when I found out he was also headed to Las Vegas, we decided to meet up here.
Tomorrow morning (before the winds start up) we plan on going up to Cal-Nev-Ari. They have the nicest little RV park up there and we’re going to spend two nights before we head into Las Vegas on Wednesday. Traveling slow works for me.
Scooter is all settled in for the fun times.
