I wasn't planning to arrive here until the first of November but global warming just didn't seem to be happening around where we were. The weather showed it to be in the mid-eighties in Quartzsite and here we are three weeks early and it is nice. I met up with a friend from last year. She has volunteered to work in the kiosk for two days a week registering in snowbirds (travelers escaping the cold from up north and Canada) at the Long Term Visitor Area here in the desert. In doing so she gets to stay for free. Those who want to stay long term (Sept. 15 through April 15) pay $180. With that you get trash disposal, use of dump station for waste water and a fresh water fill source. So it is a pretty good deal costing as low as 86 cents a day to camp. This is the first time I've opted to pay the long term fee. In the past I have always stayed at the 14-day limit areas around the LTVA areas. They are free but you have to move all the time. So I am trying this out and see if I can stay put for months without going bonkers.
Being that Beans and I will not be traveling and getting into mischief much during the winter there will not be the daily posting to the blog as I have been doing this past year. It just won't be that much to blog about here that I haven't already shown in years past. I'll do my best to get something of interest every few days hopefully.
