It’s been awhile since I posted so I figured I’d better get something out here. Lots has been going on and yet nothing.
THIS is the major thing I’ve been dealing with these past two weeks…….
No idea what is causing it. My skin gets very itchy in a certain spot – I scratch the hell out of it – then I apply various anti-itch creams I got at Walmart – eventually it settles down and goes completely away – for awhile – and then comes back in a different spot. It is everywhere from my ankles to my shoulders and everywhere in between. Thank gawd only one area breaks out at a time……mostly.
I decided I wanted a lounge chair. Yes, I had a lounge chair before – bought it the first year on the road. But I found I didn’t use it much and it was very heavy. I left it with me Mudder in NL.
And I didn’t want a ‘tan’ or ‘beige’ or ‘brown’ lounge chair. I wanted something bright and cheerful.
I found it at Walmart.
Hmmmm, I’ve gotten a lot of things home on the bike – but something this big ????
I ‘tried’ to put these brown bags on the luggage rack (so it wouldn’t scratch the CHROME ) before I put the lounge chair on it but the wind kept blowing them off before I could lift the chair on. So I put the bike’s windshield cleaner on it to hold them down. That didn’t work either and thankfully a nice man was walking by so he held the brown bags while I got the chair on.
Numerous bungee cords later – wobbly but secure….
I did notice while riding home that the car behind me stayed WAY WAY BACK ! LOL
This is just a short (3 second) video I made while riding. Don’t bother to open it – except GERARD – ‘cause I wanted to rub in his face the fact that I’m riding in March and it’s beautiful outside. hehehehe
I’m riding along the I-8 the other day and this car moves over into my lane – right on top of me !!! I braked quickly thinking that they would realize I was in the lane and swerve back. NOT ! It was a very elderly woman with very dark glasses on. You know the kind that has the dark sides on them as well. She had two hands gripped on the steering wheel and was completely focused straight ahead. She didn’t look sideways at all.
Narrowly missed me and I can tell ya I yelled and few “F” words at her. I sped up and glared at her. I’m sure she still had no idea how close she came to killing me !!
I left that gorgeous spot out by Pilot Knob and spent about a week back at the VFW getting things taken care of. That will have to wait for my next post. The heat in Yuma got to me so I started my very slow trek North. I’m in Lake Havasu City now.
Beautiful sunset from my boondocking spot last night in Lake Havasu City….
