Sunday, February 13, 2022, Dome Rock BLM, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 11 - 0 Miles, 3,771.5 Miles for the Trip

It actually got cool enough to want two blankets last night - down to 45°F outside & 58°F in the trailer before the furnace kicked on. After breakfast I took some photos of folks packing up & leaving.

Lots of packing & hitching up as the crowd at Dome Rock thins. It isn't empty, but there are lots of open areas that used to be filled with fiberglass. The upper ridge (sometimes known as Snob Hill in good fun) is almost empty. Yesterday it was filled almost trailer to trailer. Still, there are at least 30 trailers scattered around the area.

Around 11:00 I headed to Parker to get some groceries. I also topped off the gas tank - fuel at Running Man was $3.31 per gallon, much better than Quartzite's best price of $3.56.

I packed up the trailer getting ready to head to the dump station, but decided rather than putting everything inside the trailer away, then getting most of it out for the night, then repacking it in the morning, I'd just wait to dump tomorrow. I only have to drive 174 miles to Anza-Borrego State Park, so I will have plenty of time in the morning. I do have some angry hummingbirds after taking down the feeder.

I checked the propane & am down one tank, so off to Mobil for a refill. I got there at 3:45 and the propane guy doesn't arrive until 4:00, so I waited. As long as the Mobil station is also a Burger King & it was 4:10 by the time I finished with the propane, I bought my first drive in meal, so...

Dinner was an Impossible Whopper, fries & a diet coke. I do like their Impossible Whoppers.

Until Tomorrow -
