Wednesday morning instead of doing laundry, I was coaxed into going to another line-dancing class. So at 9:45, I headed over to Pam's and joined "the girls" in a morning of exercise...that's what I've decided to call it since my uncoordinated movement nowhere resembles dance. Today I even had the instructor come from the front of the class to my back corner spot and give me personalized instruction...and another class member offered to meet through the week for tutoring...okay? get the picture of just how bad I am? LOL! But having said that, it was two hours of absolute hilarity, laughing so much (at myself) that I was practically crying! Thanks for talking me into going to one final class...it was a blast!
While I was gone Steve worked on the trailer roof again. He started just before I left and by 12:15, when I got home, he was just finishing up.
Before heading in for a shower, I helped Steve put the awning and sunshade back up...the strong wind we'd had for the past couple of days had finally subsided and it was going to be a warm day. So the rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing outside.
At 5:30 we wandered over to Jim and Barb's...they had invited us out to the Grubstake for dinner to thank us for watching Daisy. The Grubstake has an "old bar" atmosphere with plenty of personality. All sorts of things, including money, stapled to the walls and ceiling. This is a shot of ceiling...
Barb and Steve ordered fish and chips while Jim had calamari and I had popcorn shrimp (both with chips too)...tons of food and all very tasty. Thanks for a great evening out, guys...we really enjoyed it! (but you really didn't need to buy us dinner...watching Daisy those few times was my pleasure and certainly not a tough job!)
Before leaving the area, we wanted to get one more day of geocaching in...so Thursday morning the six of us (Red/Pam, Jim/Barb, Steve and I) headed out on our four-wheelers to catch a string of caches about 10 miles north of us.
Our first hunt was at the site of an old well...a very cool spot and had we not been geocaching, we probably would never have found it (another reason why we love geocaching).
However the geocache proved to be elusive...Steve and I were soon joined by the others and all six of us hunted and hunted, but could not find it. We finally decided to "call it" and continue on...darn! We'll have to give it a try another time.
Red and Pam must have known that Steve and I were getting close to finding our 1000th geocache and had packed some adult beverages to celebrate. Well, we reached (and passed) that landmark today and stopped on the trail on our way home for a celebratory bevie! Thanks guys!
We got home at about 3:00...another great day out on the quads! After getting cleaned up, we relax inside...I logged our finds on geocashing.com while Steve read his book.
At 5:30 everyone started gathering at Greg and Cori's...tonight the RV-Dreamers group is having a "Big Bang Theory Party". We started with drinks...and food...lots of food...
Friday was pretty much a chore day...after exercises, showers and breakfast, we loaded the dirty laundry into the truck and headed off into town. Steve dropped me off at the laundromat then went to get our drinking water containers filled.
Once home, I got started on hanging the laundry on the line to dry and Steve filled the fresh water tank in the trailer. After a bite to eat, I continued with chores around the trailer and Steve cleaned the truck cab....then we managed to sit out in the shade for a bit. It was a hot day with temps into the low 80's.
At 4:00 Jim and Barb popped over and joined us for a bevie...followed by a visit from Pam...and then Brian. By this time it was after 6:00 and time to go in for dinner.
We're down to our last few days here at Quartzsite...so we'll be busy cleaning and packing up. We leave Tuesday for a few days in Yuma before starting our trek back north to BC.
By the way, Steve's interview with RidersWest Magazine has been published. This edition also has an article on our friends that are also here, Bob and Sue Stewart, very cool! If you are interested, here is the link...The Great American Escape on Four-Wheelers.
