I knocked of a WHOPPING 45.2 miles today. Yes, You read that right. I really needed a day of rest as I’ve driven now 1,338 Miles or 2,153 KM’s in the last 6 days.
I needed to re-group; re-organize and relax. Things get haywire pretty quickly in my ‘home’ when I’m on the road as I just wake up and drive and don’t do much of anything else.
So I puttered around all morning, got my hair cut (I was desperate !) and eventually got on the road at 1:00PM and was safely tucked away at Wally’s by 1:45PM.
Arrived in Mesquite, NV to a HOT 79F/26C and the very first order of business was to get all doors and windows open. That’s what a difference in elevation does. Mesquite is at 1,601’ - prior to arriving here I was in much higher elevations.
I tell ya elevation is everything when you’re a fulltime RV’er. Prior to getting on the road ‘elevation’ meant nothing to me as it had no impact on my life. Now it sure does and it’s always something I pay attention to.
The first year on the road (wherever I was) it was not warm enough for me. So I checked the map and found a place further South – only for it to be COLDER = Higher elevation.
This is my view tonight….
BARBARA now I feel much better and looking forward to boondocking again in the desert for the next months !!
Tomorrow will be the last leg (of this part) of my journey and I only have to drive less than 50 Miles to get there. Somewhere in the Overton area I’m gonna find a great spot and boondock for a week or two. I’ll be getting the bike out and looking forward to checking out the Valley of Fire.
