Ugh....that 6 hour “happy hour” we had last night (without dinner) is showing its affects this morning.  Actually, I’m probably feeling better than I should...I’m just mainly tired (and slow...just can’t move too fast this morning).  Good thing we are leaving today...those new friends of ours are a very bad influence on us...haha...just kidding! The whole group at Midland are wonderful people...very warm and welcoming...we will be back to see you all again.

After a stop at the sani-dump, we left Midland at 10:30 and made our way south to the I-10 where we headed east towards Quartzsite.  As we crossed the Colorado River into Arizona, we changed time zones again...and lost an hour (oh good, I can go to bed an hour earlier tonight!). 

Dome Rock...

We had a short travel day, arriving at La Posa South LTVA just before 12:30.

We filled up with took forever with low water pressure and then made our way into the area where we had camped last January when we were first here. 

We pulled over and decided to walk the rest of the way to see what spots were available.  We received a warm welcome from Art and Jan who suggested a spot just down a bit further from where they were.  It was right across from where Rob and Peggy are, so we stopped to say hi to them and then Steve walked back to get the rig.

It took a few minutes to get the trailer angled in the right east/west direction to give the solar panels optimal performance and then it was time to get leveled and unhitched.  All went smoothly...Steve even managed to get a satellite signal right off, just needing to make a bit of an adjustment.

After a shower, Steve went into Quartzsite to fill a propane tank...the one we emptied last night at our ‘campfire-in-a-can’ gathering.  I sat with the laptop working on our blog...we have a great signal on our MiFi here...4G with all bars...yay!

When Steve got back, Rob popped over and invited us over for a glass of wine.  We will definitely come over for a visit but no alcohol for us tonight!!  We chatted with them and watched as the sun went down...another beautiful sunset...and then headed back home to have dinner and veg in front of the TV for the rest of the evening.  Earl and Alison also arrived this evening...looking forward to seeing them in the morning!
