A beautiful and hot day here in Palm Desert. Current temperature at 1:00PM was 75F/24C. Loves it I do !! At one point, while driving around today, the temperature on the dash showed 87F. (UPDATE: At 7:00PM I still have the windows open !)
It was so nice to wake up knowing I didn’t have to get on the road. Last night I didn’t even need the heat on at all during the evening. Although I’m sure the furnace cut in overnight as I had it set to 60F.
Had a great lazy morning just putzing around and making phone calls. Doing laundry right now and still have several other errands to do after that. Then back to Wally’s for the rest of the day and tonight.
Got lost trying to get to the laundry place and even more lost trying to get back. But because of that I did get to see a bit of the area. One word comes to mind = MANICURED. It truly is beautiful here with all the palm trees and flowers and the gardeners and sprinklers were very busy. Now let me remind you it’s almost the end of November !!
All the street names I saw were named after celebrities ie. Bob Hope Drive; Frank Sinatra Drive etc.
When I was getting ready to pull out this morning my jacks would not retract ?? Don’t know what was up with that ? I did check to make sure the engine was running and the hand brake was on as it’s supposed to be. Then went out to look at the jacks and didn’t see anything obvious. Tried the buttons several times with no luck. Turned the engine off and on several times. Finally I pressed the button and they retracted. Still don’t know what the problem was so I will definitely have to get that checked out.
Because of that delay getting going I got a little present - A lady pulled into the parking lot right in front of me and came up to my rig this morning and gave me FREE 4 days/3 nights at several different RV Resorts - the closest one being Colorado River Oasis in Ehrenberg. So I'll definitely take advantage of that at some point over the next month or so. Gotta endure a 60 minute presentation to get this as these are membership resorts but for 3 free nights I think I can do that.
On to Quartzsite tomorrow to rest and relax for a week or so – AND get some riding in ~~
