Merry Christmas

We had a Christmas party at the club house. Everyone brought a dish to pass and we had turkey and ham supplied by the park.
Niels and Deb all dressed up for the party.
 Everyone also brought a gift to play white elephant. You could steal the gift up to 3 times.
The park owner, Shawn got the funniest gift of all. The Potty Putter.
Peggy with her festive top on.
The park had a Christmas lights contest and we came in third place with our Laser light show on the RV. The prize for third was $10 off this months electric bill. I probably used up that much electricity to light it all up. So we broke even.
As I am writing this blog today the wind is blowing at 40 MPH and only 51 degrees out, but the sun is out. Had to take the flag down and button the cover on the Big Dog. We are sitting in the RV watching a Saturday Night Live marathon. We will have football later to watch. Yeah!!
Cliff has the holiday craps again! I had to sleep on the couch last night to let him out fast. Yipee!

Merry Christmas to all!

Desert Run

I went on a Desert Run with Richard, Fred and Niels. I rode with Richard in the Jeep, Niels and Fred rode their 4 wheelers.
We rode to Weeping Springs at the bottom of Sleeping Indian Mountain. On the way we stopped at some active Gold mines.
 I guess they find gold in the bottom of this hole in the ground. You could not see the bottom.
We saw a lot of mines and all of them had these signs and a little tube with the paper work showing how many acres and the purchase price of the claim.  
This is a mine with a gate to keep claim jumpers out.
It was a rough ride in the Jeep. Most of the time we were only going 5 MPH.
On the way we stopped at this old mining shack out in the middle of the desert. 
People leave different things in and around the shack.
These are Teddy Bear Cactus. They are the most dangerous ones. They also call them the jumping Cactus, because they seem to jump up and get you. So I tried to stay away from them.
 This is Weeping Springs. A pretty small spring but it is water in the middle of the desert.
I had to hike up a little hill to get to it. There was Goat poop all over the place. But we did not see any of them around. I did see a Coyote run up and over a hill. 
We stopped and had lunch at Weeping Springs.
We had to go down and then back up to get to the springs. It was a good time with new friends here in Quartzsite, AZ.

Good Times Roll

The weather here in Quartzsite has been really nice in the 70's and sunny.
We had a fun afternoon at our favorite establishment Beer Belly's Adult Day Care. They have live music every day now.
We have talked to a lot of people that dry camp out in the BLM land. That does not sound like fun to me, I like having water and power ALL the time. That might be why the bar is so busy. They have to come in and drink and see some kind of civilization.
Funny People with a good sense of humor.
 The Band.
Nice sunny day.
A little motorcycle show in the parking lot at Beer Belly's.
We have put up our Christmas lights on the RV and I added a laser light show.

Peggy having fun in the lights.
Oh donut heaven! A nice big one with bacon on it. Food pictures, I had to put this one in the blog.
We had a beautiful sunset last night.

I am trying not to take pictures of food but we can talk about it. I have been making my own Pizza dough and it is killer good on the BGE. I made Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza the other night. I prebaked the crust on the BGE. Then added the chicken and bacon.
We took Cliff to the city park so he could remember what GRASS looked like. He was so happy to poop on real grass again.

Look at that stunned look. It IS real GRASS!
The weather has been a little cool here. Low 70's during the day and in the high 30's at night. But NO rain. I have had to fill the propane twice so far.
A lot of the vendors are starting to set up in town. We found a place the sells Dot's Pretzels from North Dakota. They are really good. Hard to stop eating them sometimes. We also found a place that cooks fresh cut French Fries that are really good. So much food so little time.
