December 11, 2015—An RV lot in Yuma, Arizona
We woke up to wind and some clouds. At 11:00, we walked with Todd, Bonnie, and their two little dogs. The wind was the only problem. As we headed east around our block, it was breezy, but manageable. After going north and turning west we knew how the motorhome feels in a head wind. The wind out of the west was terrific. And there was some sand off the desert involved. We were able to make it back to the MH without any major mishaps. And there was more good news…neither Todd nor I required any rest stops along the way. We must be getting stronger.
Bill had three errands he wanted to go on. I wanted to go out to lunch. So off we went. We had our route planned out, ending at KFC. In actuality, we ended up doing the errands in reverse order. Everywhere we went first wasn’t doable at the time.
We ate lunch first, then made a U-turn and started the errands. Dollar Tree, which we had completely missed before, was just where it was suppose to be, so as we headed south we parked and went in.
It was a smaller store than we normally go to so we didn’t spend much time there…shopped, checked out, and left.
Several days ago, we had located a cache at a coffee kiosk, but couldn’t open the container. This morning, they were so busy we just drove on by. When we went by after lunch, the place was closed, probably because of the wind. We found that the cache container needed maintenance so we will have to try another day.
Our last stop was at a water kiosk for two 5 gallon bottles of water. Yuma water is dreadful and Bill won’t put it in the MH tank, so we get big bottles of good water and Bill pours it in. We could take the motorhome to the kiosk, but that would involve moving the MH. Bill has figured out a system that works for him, and that’s good!
We stayed in for the rest of the day while the wind blew. At suppertime, we had sprinkles. Bill would say a 12 inch Arizona rain…12 inches between drops, but it was nice to hear raindrops on the roof. And the wind storm had passed through!
