I left Ben Avery's rifle range this morning and arrived at the Hi Jolly boondocking area in Quartzsite about lunch time. I almost didn't leave this morning because it was so windy but when I realized the wind was coming from the East and I was heading West it brightened up my whole day.
It's pretty warm here today, my outside thermometer says 84 and when you stand in the sun it feels like it, but if you get in the shade of the trailer it feels more like 64. That's the way it works when the humidity's 15 percent.
It's still pretty crowded here at Hi Jolly but I assume there were a lot more folks here during the Big show. I drove by Scaddan Wash where I was boondocked a week ago and there was still a lot of people there but not nearly as many as before. In the winter Quartzsite's always crowded but the crowds are easy to deal with until the Big Show is in town.
I parked the Arctic Fox next to a Wash which will be a handy place for riding the little Beta. There's people boondocked closer to me than I prefer but I didn't want to drive any further down the dirt road because I'm not sure how long I want to stay at Hi Jolly yet.
As I was setting up the Arctic Fox a medium-sized fifth wheel pulled in about 100 feet from me and I didn't see any solar panels on his roof. Guess what I'll be listening to tonight, and it won't be music to my ears.
