I went driving around Ajo a little bit today taking pictures of random things. There's some wild flower blooms going on around here, nothing spectacular but more flowers than I've ever seen in the desert.
It was a nice warm day but kind of overcast for most of the day. It wasn't enough to affect the solar panels very much because I was fully charged by lunch.
I'm thinking I need to start moseying on down the road next week. I believe next week will be one month that I've been here in Ajo which seriously broke my two weeks and then move rule all to pieces. I think the problem has been that I just don't have any other place I'd rather be at the moment.
I'm a little bit afraid to head towards Tucson for fear of having to compete for a place to stay with all of the Escapee folks leaving the Escapade that ends this weekend, and since I don't think it's time for most people to be heading back north again there may be a lot of folks staying in the area.
Even though I have no idea where I'm going to go, I do know that I've got to get going. I like being here, it's starting to feel like a home, and that's a sure sign I need to ease on down the road, I just hope I do it before I take root and start having to pay property tax.
