Finished doing my laundry today, fortunately there's only three other people in the campground so getting a machine is not a problem and since there brand-new washing machines and dryers they work very quickly and efficiently. The only downside is there small and they cost money, $1.50 to wash and $1.75 to dry.
I've been doing a little straightening up today since I'm leaving Monday morning, but I won't load up the motorcycle and other things like that until tomorrow.
Staying away from people to avoid the flu certainly does limit the things you can do and the places you can go. It's not so noticeable when I'm out the desert by myself but here at Ben Avery's, where I'm just a couple miles from all kinds of shopping, I often find myself with an overwhelming desire to go to Home Depot. So far I've avoided giving into that desire but I'm not sure how long I can hold out so I'm kind of glad to be leaving on Monday.
I'm not sure how long I have to sequester myself like this to be safe, but from what I've read flu cases haven't topped out yet and are still on the increase so I'll probably have to stay like this until flu cases are at least declining somewhat.
I'll be going back to Quartzsite from here and since this is the Big Shows last weekend I expect things to be considerably less crowded when I get back. I'm thinking what I may do when I need to buy some more groceries while in Quartzsite is drag the Arctic Fox to Parker and stay overnight in the Walmart parking lot there. Doing that would give me the opportunity to go shopping late at night when the store is almost empty and cut down on my chances of catching the flu.
I've heard Fluffy and his pack howling at night a lot of times, but I've never seen him howling in the daytime. So I consider myself very fortunate to get these two pictures.
