Another day dawns in the lives of RVSue and her canine nutcakes.
I make some progress on the clean, wax, and polish project.
By progress I mean I do a little bit every day. So far I have the front, back, and door side done. This is the first time I’ve used Meguiar’s products.
I started on the door side of the Best Little Trailer. Of course, as soon as I finish, I step back to admire the shine.
“What? That doesn’t look right.”
Does that side look darker? Oh, no, it IS darker! I walk back and forth, bending this way and that, scrutinizing the finish.
What have I done? Don’t tell me I’ve ruined the finish! It has a blue cast to it. Yep, it’s blue, all right.
“Wait a minute. That blue is the outdoor rug! The rug is being reflected in the shine!”
What a relief! Gee, I’d hate it if anything hurt my precious little house.
Mid-morning the crew and I buzz over to Quartzsite.
First we go to RV Lifestyles on Dome Rock Road.
They don’t have the LED bulbs I want. I ask about a new spare tire cover, but in order to get the right size you need the numbers off the sidewall. I don’t have the numbers.
Next we stop at Love’s Travel Center for gas ($3.39 a gal.) and for a Subway sandwich.
Up Kuehn Street we go.
I park the PTV at the vendor who sells tools and lots of RV stuff.
I buy two LED bulbs for $19. Next we make a quick stop at the grocery. I don’t need anything. I want to see what’s in the meat case. I ask the butcher to slice off two ribs from a slab of baby back beef ribs. I tell them they’re treats for my dogs so he cuts them separately. Only 96 cents for the two bones. Very meaty. The crew will love ’em.
Bridget and Spike contentedly gnaw on the bones all the way home.
I drive up Palm Canyon Road toward our camp.
We meet a Jeep with a couple inside. The Jeep stops. I bet they know my blog. I stop the Perfect Tow Vehicle in the road and bring down my window. Their smiles confirm what I supposed.
I find out they’re Sandy and Scott from Eureka, California.
Scott tells me he’s read this blog for a year and a half. Right now they’re dry camping on the other side of the Colorado in a campground right on the river.
“We were just up talking with Bill and Ann,” Scott says, referring to my friends who are Kofa volunteers. Scott is interested in the Wilson antenna to improve internet at their house. Sandy asks about the crew.
I pull Bridget up to my lap and she sticks her head out the window. (Spike is too involved with his bone to be disturbed.) After enjoying a great chat back and forth from our vehicles, Scott, Sandy, and I say our nice-to-meet-yous and go our separate ways.
Back home . . .
I place the crew’s prized possessions on the mat. The gnawing continues.
Of course, Bridget has to see if Spike’s bone is better than her bone, and Spike has to see if Bridget’s bone is better than his bone.
By now we’re in the hottest part of the day.
I go inside to blog, but can’t get in the mood. I change into a tank top and shorts, kick off my sandals, and take a nap with the crew!
