Quartzsite-Yuma-El Centro

We drove down to Yuma to get a Blood test done but we were too late on Wednesday. A friendly bus driver gave us direction, we found the lab and a big property on the same street with 4 different catering trucks. Hawaiian BBQ, Tacos, Ice cream, espresso and all kind of goodies. Of course we had dinner there. We needed a lot of things done on the Internet so we decided to spoil us with a full hook up night at the Shangri-La Resort. Got everything done and after a quite night back to the lab and a nice surprise: they do it for 15 bucks, the other places I found on the Internet were charging between 30-40. Highlight of the day: we finally met Kevin and Ruth after reading their blog for years. ( I actually have had a link for their blog here for years ) They left Quartzsite a day before us, later they had to go to Algodones but we finally managed to get together. Actually a small group gathered when we arrived, all are readers of the blog and are spending the winter in the area. It was very good to see them, a nice couple hope to see them again. We left late in the afternoon, made it to El Centro and called it a day.

Wide selection of tacos, a great place. If you are in the Yuma area: head south on Fortuna from 
I 8, after a 1/4 mile on right. 

We spoiled us for the night at Shangri La Rv Resort. 

We finally met Kevin and Ruth and a few of their visitors at the Pilot Knob LTV area just west of Yuma.

Back on the road

Unfortunately it has been a year since my last post because of health issues, but we are on the road again. At the end of  January we’ve made it to the southern part of California, Arizona and finally enjoying the nice, sunny weather, temperatures around 25-26 C.  On the way south we had some horror stories with buying a SIM card for my phone, but after 2 days of struggle we are online with ATT. Can’t do a regular post because it comes with only 2.5 Gig of data. Today was our third day in Quartzsite and it rained!!!! We found out that some friends from Victoria are here as well and we dropped by for a coffee. It was good to see Steve and Dianne, I wrote a story about them and their really unique rv in RV Times a couple of years ago. After our visit we had to go to Parker to buy some groceries. Qartzsite is a boondocker’s Mecca but not for grocery shopping. We stay in the US for the rest of January and planning to cross the Mexican border in February.

Quartzsite is a boondockers Heaven.

Visited Steve and Dianne today. It was good to see them after 2 years. They are fulltimers from our home town.

In Parker, Arizona today. It was raining so we went grocery shopping. Parker is a nice little town on the Colorado.
