Back to Quartzsite, I left around 9:00 after calling world travelers Jan and Bill Mains. Every time I head south, she says "you just passed by us". THIS time I was determined to have a meet and greet.
Heading East on I-10, all I saw was truck butts. Traffic was right up my alley ... very light with only a few trucks on the road. The other direction was wall to wall vehicles.
Of course they passed me like I was standing still as I chugged along at 60 mph.
Truck butt after truck butt. If there had been anything else to photograph, I would have.
If you've ever read Jan's Blog, you know how they have been traveling around the world on cruises and boat tours. They live not far from me, so I was determined to meet them in person. It finally happened yesterday. They even came in my rig to see the zoo I carry with me, complete with Jonathan shrieking and puppies barking.
Funny how it feels like I know them so well before I even met them. We had lots of laughs and I'm sure could have talked for hours, but I needed to get on down the road before dark. I'm hoping to get back to see them again soon.
I arrived home just in the nick of time to unload the kids, set up Jonathan's heat lamp and rush over to the Chance residence. As you probably have guessed, I NEVER turn down an invitation to dinner!! Especially when it's one of Patty's fabulous casseroles.
Back at the ranch, I've got lots of unpacking to do. Then it's on to things like replacing the kitchen counters, getting the carpets stretched and retacked, and figuring out how to thwart those little rascal javelinas from destroying my water station.
I'll play catchup on Quartzsite tomorrow, along with a few images I've missed in the last few weeks.
