Everyday some new comes and every day some one moves on......there are some who are here for the long term....Rich the fisherman has been coming here for years and he stays all winter. There are a few folks from Canada who will be here the whole winter along with American's who will be here for months.....some of us seem to talk a lot about moving on to see something different, yet, weeks later we are still here.......
|This was Quartzsite, Arizona|
|This little red feathered friend was hanging around for a few days with a small group of no-red feathered birds|
|It got real busy while the fireworks trade show was going on in Lake Havasu........many rude pain in the butt types of folks including ATVs who thought everyone's rvs were there to race around.|
|I took these photos before everyone showed up......I spent a few days just hiding in my 5th wheel and did not even go outside.|
|I just like to show off the Triumph!!!|
I would have moved a few weeks ago, but with the company of Kodi and his keepers Norman and Bill Sander which I'm really enjoying....we have spent many hours in fellowship learning about God's gift of Grace. I think it is one of those friendships that will continue for years.
He and Norma now live on a lake near Mount Rainier. They have been married something like 57 years and still seem to act like kids in love.
They are musicians who spent many years of their life traveling from one show to the next....big band stuff during a time when rock and roll ruled may have kept them from hitting the big time, but it sounds like they had a great time.
Bill is cousins with Casey Sander the actor........Casey has had one of the busiest careers ever and has been in a number of my favorite shows. Tool Time, Justified, Grace under fire and many more.
Norma is a sweetheart who just makes the days better....... Bill is a giant teddybear with quick wit and a quirky sense of humor.......imagine me with my inability to understand humor due to TBI having conversations with Bill....sometime I just come to a stop trying to figure out what he means....lol
I mentioned Paul and Mary a few weeks ago...they have the VW bus.....they were not planning to stay very long, but every few days they head down the road to check out new areas and soon they are back camped in their spot....lol!!
It has gotten to the point now that they pull out and leave their tent and trailer at their spot and go camping for a day or tree and come back for a few days before they pull out and check out another area.
Their last trip was to a ghost town over by Bouse...Swansea, they gave me some photos that I want to share.
This rock was found by Paul on a Burro trail with tracks all around it....how it survived is a great mystery. Paul believes it is a sample of silver that was formed attached to the rock and over the years the surrounding softer rock just wore away......he will have it checked out later....what a great find.
|Here is my kind of treasure.....old trucks turn me on!!!!|
It's along way out and they tell me the road is not good for the rv.....maybe next year Sandy and I will get out there to check it out.
One more fellow camper I'd like to introduce you to is the builder of this unit
|Les is a cancer survivor who was a boat builder.....he now lives full-time in this.|
|I really like the wood stove....he says it heats the place up with just a few small blocks of hard wood.|
