I celebrated my one year on the road, 3/5, with a cheeseburger and pitcher of beer at Emerald Cove’s Tiki bar. I like their burgers, yummy. Back in the desert, it rained a little yesterday and it is windy with gust of 40 mph today. It’s still T-shirt weather, though, and so I’ll take it.
Here at Emerald Cove Resort, there are people, cars and trucks. There was karaoke Friday and Saturday night until 11:00 PM, at the Tiki bar and they parked me next to it, it was awful. I enjoy the full hook-ups but it will be nice to get back to the solitude of the open desert.
I went to the Laundromat Mall, yesterday, to dump tanks, fill up on water and shower. It’s been nippy, 30sF at night and 60sF during the day. Early next week and we’ll be back in the 70sF. I’ve made reservations to stay at Emerald Cove Resort, again. I’ll be there, 3/5, to celebrate my 1 year anniversary on the road full-timing! Can you believe it, a year already? I was wondering why more people don’t retire this way but truth is, most of us RVers are indeed old folks!
At Yuma Lakes RV Resort, I couldn’t get enough Internet to post. On my Verizon Jetpack, I was able to get a signal but the signal was just too congested. I am now back at Midland LTVA and the connection is good. Funny, I can’t get online at a resort but things are great out in the desert. A walk at the resort was only a little better than a walk in an RV parking lot, glad to be back in the desert.
I’m still out here in the north Sonoran Desert. Friday I went to the Laundromat Mall to dump waste tanks, fill up water tank and got a shower. Next Friday I’ll be heading to Yuma Lakes RV Resort, for a week, with full hook-ups. The full hook-ups vs. boondocking is becoming more like full hook-ups vs. solitude, I think I’m going to spend more time boondocking.
