Some people click the pics immediately, but some wait for others to go first.
Like I've mentioned before, I hardly ever see anybody on a regular bicycle anymore. Electric bikes have taken over, and all the bike people never mention "it's good exercise" anymore.
At the back of this line of bicycles, I think I see the perfect RV for Barney the Old Fat Man. He likes bicycles, and he likes a minimal trailer, and this is about as minimal a trailer as you can get.
I was busy this morning; I got a propane tank filled up, bought a few groceries at Albertson's, filled up the truck with diesel, and picked up a few odds and ends at the Ace Hardware store and Home Depot.
That took care of most of the morning, so after lunch, I got to relax and sit around doing absolutely nothing, which wasn't possible during the outdoor Expo.
Almost all the people that were camped here for the last few days have left, and now it looks like there are only five or six RVs left in the campground, and almost all of those are at full hookup sites, so it's pretty quiet in the boondocking area and I'm thankful for that.
After I've been around crowds of people, like at the Expo, it makes me appreciate the peace and quiet and just being by myself. I know most folks aren't loners like I am and probably don't understand how I can be by myself and still be perfectly happy; I don't even understand it myself. I just know I'm happy to be around people, but then I need time to balance out my life by not being around people.
And yes, I know that's weird and not at all normal. And I couldn't live that way for most of my life because working a job or running businesses required me to be around lots of people most of the time. But, when I went full-time, I decided this might be the last chance I ever get to live in a way that makes me happy; and so far, the life I've cobbled together for myself is working, and I'm very happy and see no reason to change.
I was lucky I got into all the tents before it got crowded. In a another hour or two you wouldn't be able to fit into this tent. If you've ever been to The Big Show in Quartzsite on day one, you know what I mean.
I refuse to live in an RV that requires I have to change my clothes while laying down, and is roughly the size of a coffin.
This is one of the reasons that people come to the Outdoor Expo. There are gun dealers here, and since your at a firing range, for a few dollars you can shoot the guns you're interested in instead of just looking at them in a glass case.
See the red boat near the end of the line? That's a 25 foot ski boat, and it was the only boat that had a price tag hanging on it, and it cost $243,000! I found that hard to believe, but that's what it said.
This mounted shooter looks like he could play a bad guy in a cowboy movie, he's got that slightly crazed look. Movie star Bruce Dern, a favorite of mine, was famous for his crazed bad guy look.
Mounted shooter. They weren't many guys shooting, I only saw four, it was mostly women.
