We were on the road by 8 AM with about 275 miles to get to the California border and our next campground Pilot Knob. In Eloy, AZ, exit 208, across the street of the Pilot, I got our wheels shined. $5 a wheel and it took about 20 minutes. I’ve been coming here for about 7 years or so. Your wheels can not have that plastic coating on them. They have to be shineable.
We then picked up the I-8 in Casa Grande towards San Diego. Earlier we just had a strong side wind. Now it changed to a head wind and rain off and on. Yes, the shiny wheels and motorcycle are dirty again. Here are some pics……
In Yuma we tried to get into Fry’s for Diesel at $2.75 but it was all jammed up real bad. We went to Flying J across the street and it was 10 cents more and drove straight to the fuel pump. Next was propane. That was a mad house too. The guy said this all started last week and hasn’t let up. He had no reason why all of a sudden a mad house. It’s due in part to the normal pilgrimage of snowbirds but he said this was unusual. Maybe it’s the cheaper fuel prices. Propane was $2.29 a gallon.
I got mobile wash guys coming out Friday for a wash and hand wax of the RV and Jeep (just wash) for $100. Hey, at $100 bucks I just got to do it and we do every year. True we are going to dusty Quartzsite but that’s just dust and can be wiped off or a light quick wash.
Our HDMI 4X4 Matrix switching device for our TVs has just about had it. Comes and goes. Does anyone know anything about these switching devices? Where’s Bob Pinner?……….
On our trip here we lost the license plate for the bike trailer. I tighten things real good and usually too tight. It’s really hard for me to believe that this tag just fell/blew off. Anyhow, Mark K is bringing me another one from Texas next week. I talked to DMV in Livingston and they said he could pick it up for me. That’s cool.
Even though it’s New Year’s Eve we watch a few specials and hit the rack by 9:30 PM. Everyday is a new day for us.
