The party begins!

We left the Senator Wash area about 10am after dumping tanks and filling up with water.
Judy Williams,her five dogs and her husband, Stew are camped in the LaPosa North area. Carol & I stopped by for a visit. We filled up with gas at Pilot, $3.33/gal., and bought some fresh veggies at a farmers market sort of place then headed over to the main Lazy Daze camping area at LaPosa West. 33.64322 -114.22328. There were already five rigs there. We had met everyone someplace during our travels. Jerry, the guy who is organizing the GTG, is guessing there will be from 20 to 25 rigs within the next two weeks. Last year there were perhaps six or eight.
Compared to the two weeks during the big RV show, the place is a ghost town which really works to our advantage since we don't have a tow car and Carol's scooter doesn't work well in sand so desert walks are out. Right now there are lots of places we can park the camper in town. We're going to do our exploring this coming week then bum rides when the madhouse sets in by about the middle of the month. The gem & mineral show starts tomorrow. Carol is in the market for some earrings.

This is going to be a great month.

Lazy Daze doesn't make a rig big enough for five dogs!
Have fun in Q. Tell everyone hi for us.
