After boondocking in the desert for a long time living like this would be hard to get used to. But I have no intention of getting used to it.
This morning for no reason I decided to hitch up and go to Yuma. I'm not sure why because I still had two days left on my two-week stay at La Posa Wash but I just felt like going someplace else and ended up buying three days of dry camping at the Escapees Kofa Ko-Op campground.
What a change, this is the first time I've ever been to this Escapees Park and it's really crowded. I don't think they even have a hookup site available or at least I didn't see any empty spaces when I walked around the park, so it's lucky all I wanted was a dry camping site. It's really weird being around people and packed in with other RVs after being out in the desert for so long, so I think three days is about all I can handle.
I was invited to an ice cream social at the Rec. Hall this afternoon, and even offered free ice cream, but I didn't feel like being around a bunch of people, partially because of the flu thing but mostly because I've been away from people for so long it takes me a while to become sociable again.
It's an easy 90 mile drive from Quartzsite to Yuma on Highway 95 even though it's a two-lane blacktop there's not a lot of traffic. I stopped at the little outdoor museum on the Yuma Proving Grounds and took a few pictures of some tanks, but I've been there before a couple of times so it was mostly just to stretch my legs.
I think when I leave here on Wednesday I'll go to Ajo which was one of the places I was thinking of going before I came here. Ajo seems like a popular place for full timers from what I've heard and since I've never been there it will be interesting to see what's in the area besides the Organ Pipe Cactus National monument.
