Seeing as its getting warm out during the day, finally, I might get on the quad and go up through the dry wash, park, and people watch. It gets pretty interesting. People actually think that they can drive their cars in the wash without getting stuck. I'm thinking the tow people in town make a good amount of money pulling cars and two-wheel drive trucks out of the wash. Oh, and some RV's too. I've been in the wash on the quad a couple of times now since the big tent opened. Once with Diane. The cars and trucks in what is an "always empty" dry wash is tremendous. When Dan and I go check out the big tent, we'll be riding the quad as we can always park close in a small space. Works for me!
The weather has been just wonderful so far. Its been in the low to mid 70's but we still have that old north wind sometimes. Thats ok though. I'm not wearing heavy layers when outside with Bella trying to keep warm. We're still using the heater at night though...........We had another campfire to gather around. This is only the third one. Usually its alot more then that but it had been so cold.
I went out on the quad to check on a geocache for my friend Kathy during one of these nice, warm days and ended up going on a short quad ride. Just the girls, 4 of us. That was fun. Did the maintenance on the geocache and off we went. It was probably one of the dustiest rides I've been on. Guess I really noticed it because I was in the back. Dan and I usually are in the front of the pack. Man oh man! Now I know how everyone felt when they were following us! Dan still has not been out on the quad for a long ride yet as I think hes afraid of relapsing. His first ride will be going to the big tent I'm thinking.
This picture shows I-10 and some of the cars parked under it. Sure hope they could all get out ok.
This is looking out at the big tent. In this picture it doesn't look very big, but I believe its two football fields long. Once you get inside, it is huge.
