Laid out on the couch with the puppies, it was pretty hard to get in gear. I would have been happy just vegging out all day!
When I finally got my act together, the first stop was to get rid of the old TV. Just a few signs strategically placed around the area, caused cars to line up clear out to the street. It bothered me that they required some form of I.D., including your address and phone number. I imagine that list will be sold over and over again. They had pallets of electronic items, from computers to stereos to TV's. I wonder what they do with all that junk??
Next up, it's bath time for the Jeep. It hadn't been washed since arriving home in March. Remind me never to go on a Saturday again, even if I DO have a 50% off coupon. There were nine cars in front of me and eight behind. Kudos to Prime Shine because they ran cars through like crazy. I had to wait about ten minutes before entering the facility, which does a great job of car washing!! A couple swipes with a towel and I was done!!
That was it ..... boring day #65!! Since I took the Jeep, I didn't veer off to the Antique Store. The most exciting part of the day occurred when Miss Patty mentioned they found a scorpion INSIDE their house. That after having discovered a gila monster in the front yard. I'm rethinking my desert home location!!
It was a beautiful sunset that I almost missed as I watched the Giants WIN over the D-Backs!! While that was going on, I tried to spend a little more time working on my summer travel schedule. I'm not much of a planner, but if I don't at least try, the stress level rises too high to control.
It's a new route, heading up through Reno and Winnemucca (a tourist destination, don't you know), through Jordan Valley and on to Idaho. I'm hoping there aren't any roads too steep, that fuel is available and RV parks plentiful! Wishful thinking!! Does anyone know of a park around Truckee I could stay? Or maybe just West of Reno? I think I remember something near a casino, or WAS it a casino? With that info, my planning will be complete ... a load off my shoulders, to be sure!!
About that time, I walked back outside and got the scare of my life. This silly solar blue dog BARKS!! Funny how he waited until my back was turned. Apparently it has a motion detector. BAD DOG!!!! Jumping two feet off the ground was my exercise for the day!!
For anyone interested in getting their CCW in California, I'm working on it. Honestly, I think they draw the process out a ridiculously long time so you will just give up. I'll give you the specifics tomorrow!!
