It was a peaceful day boondocking at Box Wash just outside of Wickenburg Arizona, which is to say it was just like every other day.
Christmas does not appear to be the time when lots of people head for the outdoors in their Jeeps and ATVs, as there was less people running around here than on a normal day. That might change tomorrow when people that got a new ATV for Christmas might come to Box Wash and run around but today they were all home with their families.
For me things don't change during the holidays, I will make a special meal, today it was smoked salmon. And I will drink some eggnog, holidays are the only time I drink it because anything that taste that good has got to be bad for you. And I will usually buy some kind of alcohol to drink since holidays are about the only time I do any drinking, except of course special occasions, like birthdays, Super Bowl, Veterans Day, and all the days of the week that end with a Y.
I've been thinking about heading for Quartzsite sometime this week. I thought I might stay here longer but I got to thinking about the throngs of people that are going to be coming to Quartzsite after New Year's and figured that if I left about now I might have a week or two to enjoy "Q" before everything got too crowded.
I've kind of promised myself that I would install my my wired rearview cameras in Quartzsite. Not that Quartzsite's a better place to do it than here, it just allowed me to put it off a little longer. Since I know that installing the cameras is going to require a minimum of 15 trips to the hardware store I figured that getting it done before the thundering herd arrives in Q would make the lines at Herbs Hardware a little less stressful.
