Always helpful to have a retired Forest Ranger around. And, especially one from Alberta. Ivan spent some time this morning showing Wandering Willy & I the finer points of operating a ratchet strap. At least I think that’s what they are called. Will be using it to help snug down our satellite dish in the future.
Full time Canadians George & Suzie from OUR AWESOME TRAVELS dropped by to see us today. They have been staying in Quartzsite & had emailed us awhile back. Nice folks & they are actually from near my hometown of Tavistock, Ontario. The Plattsville, New Hamburg & Punky Doodles Corner area. Yes, Punky Doodles Corner is a real place.

IVAN has been doing some flying about with his Whirly-Bird lately & captured a few more great aerial shots of our little Docker location here near Bouse.
Someone had a question wondering if the prices were cheaper in Quartzsite. Well, I’m guessing the pendulum swings both ways on that. Not being a big purchaser of stuff myself I can only go by hearsay when saying there are definitely deals out there depending on what you are buying. One thing is for sure though. No matter what you buy from a vendor, you are going to find the very same thing cheaper the next aisle over it seems. Bought two belts for $15. Six vendors down the line same belts were 2 for $12!! Same thing with a set of heavy duty ratchet straps we bought. Eight dollars for four. Next vendor a few rows over had them for six dollars. And, don’t even think about exchanging & getting your money back. That’s not the way it generally works at the Q.
IVAN SHOWS US HOW TO USE A RATCHET STRAP THIS MORNING
An Anonymous commenter pointed out I had over 50 pictures in yesterdays blog so I went back & counted them. Yikes, the commenter was right. 57 to be exact. I agree, too many photos. It’s just my excitement bubbling through all the time about my love of the great American Southwest. But yep, I gotta do something about that. It’s been on my mind for awhile.

Fresh water tank’s a bit on the low side so we’re heading out in the morning. Maybe a quick stop in the Q for a couple last minute things & then we’ll be headed into California. It’s time to deal with our solar situation.
CHATTING IT UP WITH THE BOYS THIS MORNING
Must say, we have really enjoyed our 6 days here boon docking with Ivan & Wandering Willy. We first met Ivan when he dropped into the Ranch near McNeal a couple years ago & Wandering Willy we met at Borrego Springs last winter. We have all been keeping track of each others blogs for about 3 or 4 years now. Having a love of the outdoors & boon docking in common it was easy for me to feel comfortable with these fellows.
MORNING FLIGHTS LEAVING PHOENIX
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Rod, over there in Kansas was in the hospital recovering from surgery lately when a nurse asks him how he is feeling.
“I’m OK but I didn’t like the four-letter-word the doctor used in surgery,” he answered.
“What did he say,” asked the nurse.
