Q Today

Well more trailer are leaving the BIG Q than are coming in so I guess the party is about over.
Rich Luhr from Airstream Life stopped by for the night on his way home in Tucson and we all had dinner together last night
The weather has not been the best here we have had rain showers and wind the last few days,but the 60 F temp is better than in some places.
Min had to leave to go home today and took my camping buddy our dog Bob with her.I sure hope that they can get back soon.
Photo 1. Dinner last night.
Photo 2. A blimp that went past a few days ago sure was going slow down I-10.
Photo 3. The 4CU Airstream park last night with 5 Airstreams here.
Any of you Airstremers out there sure are welcome to come visit us.

Hey Jimmini,

How long are you going to be out there.. we were thinking about possibly heading out there for a weekend within the next month. We need to rid our back yard of some fire wood.

Yesterday was W I N D Y...Mike & Sheri discovered that an EZ-UP frame(sans top) can still blow over(!!!). Today looks to be really nice...no wind to speak of, clear skies, and a temp approaching 70...life is pretty darned good...

We had a very Windy day here in Phoenix as well.. When the rain stopped on Monday a front moved through and it got really windy and cooled off quite a bit. It looks like rain is on the way again for this weekend.

We have 40 percent chance of rain showers on Sat.
But other than that we are forecast to have grate weather.

Fri. 77 mostly cloudy.
Sat. 68 40 % chance showers.
Sun. 72 sunny
Mon. 76 PC.
Tue. 77 PC
Wen.77 sunny.

Since this the BIG Q there is not much going on now.I just take life EZ.
I have not done a thing the last few days.Get up have a Blood Mary,then have brunch,take my mile walk,then mess around till HAPPY HOUR at 4 when we all get together and I have my Vodka and Tonic with the snacks we have.Then I make dinner or sometimes we all cook stuff together,or we do a potluck dinner.
So that is life in the BIG Q not much to write home about,but it is a good life.
Photo 1. Min a the old oasis book store with the owner.
Photo 2. Camping in the woods of the high country of Arizona.Can't wait to get back there this summer.Right now the high country has LOTS of snow this year.
Photo 3. Some snow we got into last May in the high country of AZ.

Awesome, Jim! Isn't boondocking great?

At the DH Rally I was told about the anti-theft device you made for your generator, something about a plate that you pull onto. Do you have any pics of this?

And do you have a pic of the fresh water tank you have in the back of your Excursion?

Q Today

Have you ever been out just driving around and found yourself in a nudes campground?Well yesterday we went out to look around La Posa South LTVA campground.That is were we dump and get are water.When we came on a sign that said "ATTENTION Beyond this sign you may encounter nude sunbathers."WELL we just had to take a look since we have been here 4 years and did not know about them being here.It is a LARGER group and this late in the seaon there still where over 50 RVs camping there.They have a large area at the South and East end of La Posa South with a large tent for their get togathers.
We did find 2 Airstream there one trailer and one motor home.
Since it was a nice day low 70s many where out side so all I can say is .
