The bridge that crosses the Colorado river from Bullhead city Arizona to Laughlin Nevada
Another day of perfect desert weather, 85°, 11% humidity, and 60° at night. I guess that also explains why I'm surrounded by lots of old people from Canada.
But despite the beautiful weather outside I've spent most of the day inside listening to election related stuff. In my new full timer life I haven't paid very much attention to politics like I used to when I lived in a house without wheels. Mostly because I feel like it doesn't affect me very much anymore. I feel like I live on the outskirts of life, while not really participating in it, I'm outside looking in the window at normal lives which are interesting to watch but don't really affect me.
I see people every day going to and from their jobs, hurrying around the Walmart pushing a cart load of kids and groceries, or speeding down the highway trying to get to a place to have some fun on the weekend, and by the way, when they get there I've been there for a week already.
I know I'm not a part of that anymore, and have absolutely no desire to be a part of that, but it's kind of weird sometimes watching normal life swirl all around me while I'm standing motionless unaffected by it all.
From what I've noticed a lot of full timers sooner or later become immersed in the whole fulltimer scene. They join groups, they belong to clubs, they travel around with other RV'ers and create a new "normal" life for themselves with things to do and places to go and more importantly the kind of structure that their previous "normal" life had.
All that makes sense to me because most people don't want to be on the outside looking in, after all we humans live in herds and if you're not in the herd you're the first one to get picked off by the lions. So I'll probably be like that myself one day, I'll join the fulltimer herd and become a part of something. But until then I'll just be a straggler keeping my eye on the lions
There was a small group of Hudson car collectors staying at one of the casinos so I got a chance to look at and take some pictures of their cars.
the Hudson car was way ahead of its time with a rear window wiper. But That whole Venetian Blinds thing apparently didn't catch on.
You have to be at least as old as me to realize what this is. Back in the day This is what passed for air conditioning. It was opened and closed with a lever under the dashboard and would let cool air into the car when you were moving, in less you lived in the South and then it let in hot air.
