Out in front of the laundromat and mini store in Ehrenberg I knew there was a source for water and dumping tanks also. So I was disappointed to see it was now locked up. I asked why and learned that too many people were helping themselves without paying. Notice signs. Well this was not good. We arrived here with a half a tank. I should have filled it back in Pioche in that little RV park we stayed in. Now I was looking at having to drive to Quartzsite twenty miles away to fill.
We would be okay for a few weeks but having a full tank would be peace of mind.
I had placed an Amazon order two weeks ago and timed it to arrive at the post office here in Ehrenberg about the same time we would arrive. Well there was a screw up. Amazon sent it UPS and UPS had a delivery problem. So after only a couple days being settled I had to break camp and drive back into Blythe, California. UPS customer service is for one hour, 9-10am. Anyway, it got sorted out and they had both packages going back out to the post office that same day.
The trip to town was not for nothing.
Meanwhile, while waiting for UPS to open (they never do, you have to pound on the door to get their attention; yeah, its weird) I drove around to city parks and other places looking for a water faucet. Believe me, they are hard to find. Just look around the next time you are out driving about. If you find one usually there is no handle. Well I lucked out. I found one behind an abandoned Radio Shack with no handle. I turned it on with pliers and water flowed! Not always a sure thing for the water could be shut off even if you do find a faucet. So now we have a full tank and will be good for six weeks or so.
I have found a number of these rock art pieces since being here.
I plan to add one with each post.
