I had made up my mind to try the Q Casino. New experience ? New people ? Close to Yuma.
Didn’t ‘set-up’ – only put the slides out and the levelling jacks down. Took a walk around.
This guy has a honkin’ big Class A and towing this. Took these pics for you Byron.
I was there only a matter of a few hours and knew that I wouldn’t be staying there. It’s not a place where you put your mat and chairs out – although many people do. Figured I’d just O/N there and check out another place the next day.
THEN a big 18 wheelie pulled in right next to me and you know how they leave their engines running – well despite the fact that it was almost 6:00PM I quickly put the slides back in and jacks up. I didn’t see this sign when I pulled in…
Wouldn’t have mattered though ‘cause there were tons of RV’s parked in the ‘Trucks’ section because the RV section was full.
I was going to go straight out to Pilot Knob but given the hour of the day I thought I’d check out a spot just down the road from the Casino where I had seen lots of RV’s parked.
There was quite a selection of boondocking places to choose from.
This one was quickly eliminated because of that HILL to get up there. No problem with the rig of course but I am always thinking about getting the bike in and out of wherever I am. I know it doesn’t look like much but it was nasty. That gravel road to the right of the picture goes on for quite a ways and there’s places all along there – but they were taken.
So I ended up here just for the night….
The enormity of the desert and the number of different places you can “live” for free still amazes me !
But I knew I wasn’t going to stay there. Didn’t get that ‘feeling’ – whatever it was. So I moved the next day. You see I was over there……
And I just moved a smidge down the road to here…
Turns out this is all Indian Reservation Land and sometimes someone comes around and most times not. They charge $75.00 for a ‘fishing license’ for the Season and you get to stay there. One guy told me he’s been there since October and no one has been around.
The people that boondock here are mostly regulars who come here to the same spot year after year and set up for the Winter. Across the road is more boondocking areas….
And down over an embankment even more..
So I followed the road to see what it was like to get the bike in and out. This didn’t look too bad……
But no way was I about to tackle this on the bike…….
Plus it felt kinda isolated down there so I crossed that off my list.
I also still didn’t get that ‘feeling’ where I was so stayed there O/N and decided to move on. I did meet two nice couples from Burnaby, B.C. and they invited me to join their campfire that evening. I didn’t though.
So now where is she going (your asking )……
For my Northern Friends – even if you’re not interested in the desert pics you surely have noticed the beautiful blue skies in all of them. LOL
OH, And you know that thing I’m NOT TALKING about – well it was FOUR WEEKS yesterday and it’s still NOT GETTING ANY EASIER ! Today I start the next level – Step 2 - 14MG as opposed to Step 1 being 21 MG. It damn well better start to get easier soon so I’m throwing in the towel !! Grrrr
