Friday and Saturday, February 24 and 25, 2017 (La Posa South LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ)

We are back into some chilly overnight temperatures again...the forecast low for last night was 37F/3C. It was 42F/5C on our thermometer when we got up this morning. The high for today was only 61F/16C but the sky was blue, the sun was shining and there was only a slight breeze.

We ran out of propane on one of the tanks today...and it wasn't in the middle of the night as it had been the last couple of times. So after breakfast, Steve loaded the empty propane tank into the truck while I gathered and sorted the dirty laundry...then we were off into town. He got propane and gas while I put 4 loads of laundry on. About 40 minutes later, we were on our way back home.

I got on with the chore of hanging wet clothes on the line to dry while Steve got started on a few of his own chores...therefore knocking off a few more things off his "to do" list. We also managed to get another blog update done.

Just after 4:30 Harry and Vicki joined us for one last happy hour...they head off to the Phoenix area tomorrow. Great spending time with you again this travels and we'll see you next year!

Saturday we woke up to another very chilly morning...39F/4C outside. Today we are going to take the quads out and do some more geocaching...but we weren't in any hurry; let's wait for it to warm up! So we took our time, exercises, breakfast, dishes and clean-up...and by the time we were ready to go, it was after 10:30 and much warmer out.

It turned out to be a beautiful day...not overly warm, but nice and sunny. Look at all that green grass!
 Found it!
Onto the next one...
The cache was on the back of this sign and was the end of this string of caches...
 So we had our lunch here...
We couldn't go any further so had to back track...
Just love the views of the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge mountains...

We tried to take a shortcut through a wash over to another string of caches along hwy 95...

 But had to turn around when we came upon another US Government "No Trespassing" sign.

We found a road that eventually took us over to hwy 95... we could pick up a few more that were hidden along the highway. Riding for miles next to the highway was our least favourite ride...why would you plant caches along a highway?!
This one was very cool...we just couldn't figure out where the log was to sign in. Turns out, you blow into the bottom opening and it launches a bison tube into the air and it "bonks" you on the head....thus the name of the cache "Bonkers". Too funny! This type of cache was a first for us and can't help but think how unhygienic...
We also picked up a couple of other geocaches that we had been unable to find a couple of years ago. One was in this scraggly old Saguaro...
We were back home just before 4:30, having bagged 29 geocaches and ridden 45 miles. Steve gassed up the quads and generator while I put everything away and plugged the GPS's and radios in to recharge. Then we sat outside in the late afternoon sun and had a toast to a great day out on the quads!


  1. It has been chilly down here in Tucson as well. Into the 30's in the morning, makes for a brisk morning but we love the afternoon highs under 70!

    1. Yes, it has been nice during the day...unfortunately rain is in the forecast tho...

  2. We certainly picked the right night to stay in the "guest bedroom", would have been a chilly wake up at 37F! Of course now that we're home that seems kind of nice, it's a lovely -17C/0F here this morning...... one more year :(

    1. Yes, I was thinking the same thing....glad it wasn't too cold when you were here. Could have been an uncomfortable night out in the guest bedroom!
