New Year’s Eve

We’ve had a beautiful December 31st. You couldn’t beat the weather for traveling, no wind and we needed neither a heater or air conditioning in the bus on the road.

Leaving Yuma for Mohave Valley, we drove past the Yuma Proving Grounds and made a stop in Quartzsite to fill the tank with water. Yuma’s water is so hard and salty that we didn’t want to bring it along and since Quartzsite is prepared for many, many dry campers, they have a much better price for filling one’s tank. I wouldn’t call it terrific water, but in comparison to Yuma’s, it’s nectar!

Just outside Parker, AZ we crossed into California, so we had to make the obligatory produce inspection stop at the border. The inspector came in to check out all the fruit in the refrigerator and it all passed. I’m not sure what they would confiscate, but whatever it is, we didn’t have it! The highway we used was California highway 95, a real corrugated road if there ever was one.

We think it’s rather like a roller coaster, since instead of bridges or culverts over washes, they just let the road follow the lay of the land. You might say we had our share of ups and downs…and ups again!

The day ended on a bright note, a good omen for a wonderful, surprising year to come, I think. Happy New Year to everyone and may you have a blessed 2012!

    Any citrus fruit would have been sure to go. After that it would depend on what was on the inspectors shopping list for the day. Happy New Year!
