Well... we didn't. From what we were hearing, Quartzsite was a madhouse. I mentioned to Jeff that we didnt need anything that bad... and thats all it took. He agreed that we didn't need to go.
Steve and Roberta decided to take a day trip over. They came back saying it was a joke. Now we are really glad we didnt make the trip.
So what is the new plan??
I made the call... and we have dental appointments over the border in Los Algodones on Monday. We will have follow up appointments later in the week.
THE NEW PLAN is to leave here Thursday morning... drive to Winterhaven, CA... and find a place to boondock along the All-American Canal, just a mile from the Mexico border.
Steve and Roberta are going to the area as well... so we hope to walk over the border together on Friday, so we can find the dentist office with more "support". Then we won't be so nervous on Monday when we go over for our appointment.
What was that I said about our perfect weather here??
While Palm Springs had winds for 24 hours that blew down trees and poles and blew over a tour bus on I-10 encouraging the closing of the interstate... we had only a wind storm that came and went on Saturday afternoon. We could see the storm coming... a brown sky of dust whirling in our direction. We didnt go outside except to take down the flag, lay down chairs and strap down anything else that may blow away. We closed up windows, turned off A/C, and roasted while we watched it blow.
What a mess it left. It took all day on Sunday for Michael and Ann to clean the Hot Tub, Pool and Patio area.
We had another game night on Sunday night after the NFL playoff games... which I DONT want to talk about!!
There were only 6 of us this time, but we had a fun time.
Karin and Ziggy, in the top right corner of the photo collage, left the next morning for Yuma area, where they were going across the border to the dentist.
Today I did inside cleaning and the laundry,
and tomorrow will be outside cleaning up and packing up - day.
But first we need to GET up... so we better get to bed.
