Not too much new to report, having been stationary for over a week now at Lake Havasu.
But saving some money by not fueling the truck and getting a few things done. My battery compartment has needed some work for quite some time. I removed all the batteries and boxes from the rig.
Then, the batteries all got put in a new plastic container, complete with outside venting holes, and new wiring. I have four 6 volt batteries, but am only using two at present, as one pair are older and of suspect quality, and I don’t want them dragging the new ones down to their level.
We crossed over back into California then drove up the west side to a place called Black Meadow Landing.
Along the way there were some wild burros hanging out along the road.There are lots of caves and arches and holes in the mountains of the area – some of obvious human origin. This one short mine shaft was at roadside.
We found one outdoor flea market in Parker later that day, and the next day a much larger one in Lake Havasu.
After that I took Hailey to the beach where she had fun sliding down the banks of sand, and watching the ducks offshore.
My camp spot is way past where most of the rigs are set up, and has therefore been very quiet with lots of privacy. It is also somewhat out of the main wash – which provides more hours of sun on the solar panel, as well as nice sunrises and sunsets.
