After four days of non-stop travel, John finally decided he had had enough. We stopped at the RV park directly behind the Shell station at the I-10 and I-8 junction near Gila Bend, Arizona.
John's legs were swelling, a danger sign for one who was in the hospital just over a year ago with congestive heart failure. This is how he spent most of our time there. He also walked in order to increase circulation in his legs. It worked and he is better today.
This RV park is an Escapees fifty percent off park, so we stayed for just over $13.00. To put it mildly, we thought this was not going to be a pleasant experience. But we were mildly surprised. We had full hook-up, WIFI and very little noise from the interstate. We slept very soundly, but John had maxed out his energy and I decided that a second night was needed.
I did laundry, fixed some good vegan meals, walked dogs and just chilled. It was a good rest.
We had a visitor this morning. He was running around just trying my patience. I needed to use the telephoto setting to get these pictures. But get them, I did! He was on his way to visit another unique RV. At least I think one could call it an RV. It actually was a fifty-six foot trailer pulled by a huge tractor!
This trailer has a fold down "deck". They climb a set of stairs to get to the deck and enter from a double sliding glass patio door! There is also a garage door in the back for their un-toad. Even with the car in the rear, just think of the room and storage they have inside! I keep wondering if it had a split level inside since the trailer is so tall.
The paint was stealth black. It had no decorative "swooshes" on the sides. What I would have given to been able to see inside. The license plates indicated North Dakota. Have any of you seen it?
OK you master-mechanics, we have a problem. The inverter is not working properly. There seems to be a loose wire someplace in the inverter. John wiggles the wires and sometimes the it starts working, sometimes not.
Tomorrow, Monday, we head into Quartzsite to find someone (any suggestions?) to look at the wiring and fix it. This puts a damper on boondocking since we need electricity for the refrigerator.
That is all of our exciting day of full time travel. Some days are great, some......well......are a challenge.
