Our drive/ride from Phoenix to Quartzsite was smooth and sunny. By noon, we had picked out our campsite for the week, and were fully deployed in 30 minutes. We made the rounds of the other Boomers already here (35 rigs), helped newbies Ken and Cindy settle in, and headed to happy hour.
We had a simple dinner (Green Chile Stew) around 7 pm. Odel washed up the dishes with a few dashes of liquid gold (water) and we both took up resting positions for a bit… which turned into falling asleep at 9 am listening to bursts of laughter punctuating the low murmur of voices around the campfire.
After ten solid hours of deep sleep, we’re up, computing, and contemplating our schedule: pancake breakfast, a walk, a look at a TV installation we might emulate, maybe a trip into Q (we want to look at a few things for Scoopy), then we are off to the boonies of Bouse to visit with Janna and Mike and John and Brenda. Plus, I still need to get dressed and do the low-water personal grooming routine.
