I HAVE ARRIVED !!
A great driving day – well it was only a few hours but great nonetheless. The I-10E sure was busy though. A steady stream of traffic all the way. LOTS of RV’s and mostly the toy hauler kind. Humongous big Class A’s towing these humongous big trailers – and I mean the triple axle kind. Figure they were loaded with quads and dirt bikes. I saw a lot of this also…..
Small trucks towing small trucks and both were very loaded down. This surely cannot be safe ?? Vendors going to Q perhaps ??
Only 5 more miles to go…………
It was 3:00PM before I settled into my spot though. I had to do the tanks and my fresh water seems to take forever to fill up. Then I decided to check out the other boondocking areas around here instead of simply going back to the one I was at last year (Plomosa Rd.).
While checking out one I got chatting with this couple from Manitoba. WELL !! When he found out I was from NL I thought he was going to shake my hand off. LOL Turns out their daughter-in-law is from NL also. Then when she found out I was travelling alone, driving ‘DA HULK by myself AND ride a motorcycle – well I doubt that her jaw has closed yet. What a nice couple.
And what a set-up they’ve got. They are here for the winter and don’t have to move. He’s got a gizmo rigged up for their grey and black tanks and fresh water etc.; solar panels – the works ! I’ll have to drop back to see them when I get the bike out.
Bennie gave my lap a rest today and seemed quite content to lay on his blankie on the floor – his Harley Davidson blankie of course.
For one reason or another I decided against the other three boondocking spots I checked out and did end up back on Plomosa Rd. Got myself in a nice spot a little farther in off the road than I was last year. But as soon as I parked I realized I will have to move tomorrow. There is no way on earth am I going to be able to ride the bike out to the paved road from where I am now. So I will have to park in a spot closer to the road. Here’s a few pics of my surroundings….
A month from now (or even earlier) these areas will be full of RV’s.
