I just sat around and relaxed today. I figure tomorrow I'll go into Yuma and do a little shopping and maybe treat myself to a Chinese buffet. I'm not really sure but I think the last time I ate out was a Chinese buffet in Laughlin Nevada, and that seems like a long time ago.
I'm liking my new boondocking spot beside the Yuma VFW not just because of my increased distance from the road but I have a few bushes beside me that will help prevent people from parking to close and they also filter out a little bit of the noise coming from the highway so I don't have the urge to pack up and leave like I did yesterday.
I talked to the host when I signed in yesterday and he said that even though the government is partially shut down the Ranger told him to continue signing people in. And even though the Ranger is technically not working he will occasionally come driving through in his own personal vehicle just to see how things are going.
Thank goodness the weather has now returned to a semblance of normalcy. The last two days have been warm and sunny just like you would expect the desert to be in the wintertime. And the 10 day forecast is loaded with days in the low 70s. I sure hope the last few weeks was our winter and now it will continue to be spring until it's time for me to head North.
