Yuma at last

Drove about 70 miles to Yuma today, headed straight for the Quechen Casino in Winterhaven, just across the CO river from Yuma. The large lot for free RV parking was empty. One would expect not many RVs there, given “The weather is just too damn hot” temperatures. But zero RVs? A sign quickly revealed one probable reason. They now charge $5 for a 24 hour period, and they make ‘registering’ a real pain in the arse to boot.

Being ready to stop, looking forward to eating 3 meals for the day at once for $6.50, and $5.00 not being a deal breaker, I stopped and registered. But after checking with the dentist in Algodones tomorrow, I will look into staying at the Quechen Casino west of Yuma as they have the same deal and it is very close to Algodones, a mile or five.

If I do not get quick reaction on the partial from the Algo dentist, I will just head home and have a fresh start with the dentist in Naco, Mx. which is about 20 miles from my house. I did not even make an appointment. I probably could have saved 1/2 the cost of starting over in Naco, by saving diesel going straight home. I stubbornly wanted to come by Yuma.

But “The weather is just too damn hot.”

Hey, something like that might make a good name for a political party, perhaps in New York!
