Clicking the pics opens up details no one should have to see.
When I wake up in the morning there are often an RV or two parked in the boondocking area that weren't here when I went to bed. But there just waiting for the office to open up at 9 o'clock so they can get checked into the RV sites normal RVers stay in.
To put the final touches on my boring battery story yesterday, not knowing if I would be able to get new batteries, I drove the truck around and ran it for a while to put some charge in the batteries until I could get some new ones.
After buying and installing the new batteries, I set the old ones on the ground and checked them with a multi-meter; after letting them sit long enough for the surface charge to dissipate. Both batteries were reading 12.2. And when I got up the next morning, one battery was reading 12.2 and the other 9.0, so I had a bad battery.
I took the old batteries back to O'Reilly's this morning and got my $44 core charge back, and since I was at my shopping area already, I went to a Safeway, Walmart, and filled up with diesel fuel since I'm probably going to be pulling out of here Monday morning.
I read an Internet article that said it's not looking good for a flower super-bloom this season. It started with good moisture in the Arizona area, but there hasn't been enough late in the season, like right now, to light the flowers up. Oh well, there will still be flowers in bloom in the spring; they just won't be spectacular.
It always makes me a little sad when I'm leaving the Pima County Fairgrounds. I enjoy being at the Fairgrounds, and because there are so many good things about it, I know I will always be coming back. But like I've said in the past, "The only place I like better than where I'm at, is the place I'm going to." I'm not sure where that will be yet, but because the weather looks so good, I'm leaning towards going back to Whitewater Draw so I can wave goodbye to the Sandhill Cranes before they leave Arizona.
A sunset stroll.
Whitewater Draw Arizona. You know the more I think about that place, the more I want to go back. Even without 20,000 Sandhill Cranes, I'm sure I would enjoy being there.
Whitewater draw Arizona. It was a pretty place to boondock. And there were other things to see there besides the Sandhill Cranes. Even though it's supposed to be about 80° for most of the time I would be there. Several of those days are predicted to be cloudy, and cloudy days are great for taking snapshots.
Or maybe I'm just feeling a bit guilty because when it got a little chilly at Whitewater Draw I wimped out and slunk away to boondock in Ajo where it was warmer. And now I feel like I need to remove the stench of my failure and go back just to prove to myself that I haven't become a little girly man.... Remembering the old saying, "When you fall off your horse you've got to get back on, or shoot him and buy a motorcycle,"
