Sunday, January 15, 2017, La Posa West, Quartzsite AZ, Day 20, 0 Miles, 3,991.7 Miles For the Trip

There was just enough rain last night to hear it on the roof, but only for a few minutes, and everything was dry by morning. I treated myself to a breakfast at The Bad Boy Cafe - had their special, a pair of biscuits stuffed with bacon & covered with sausage gravy plus a fried egg. It was OK, even real sausage gravy, but the coffee was still a bit weak.

Back t the trailer I finished my mug of coffee & did my usual morning reading. There is one more of us - Dave showed up with his Dolphin, towing an ATV.

After sitting outside for a bit I headed to the Rock & Gem Show. Hundreds of booths set up with rocks, both finished & raw stock (and merchants) from around the world. I spent most of my afternoon looking, but did purchase a couple of pieces of native copper from the upper peninsula of Michigan. Some photos of the show:



After that it was back to the trailer for more sitting in the sun (73°F) and chatting. Around 5:00 it was cooling off enough that it was time for a break for dinner.

I had a Bubba Burger, potato salad, and snap peas.

Until Tomorrow -
