Kaite and Alex started our day with pancakes, sausage and smiles! I'm feeling a little bad for you people that didn't experience this!
After breakfast Bob led a discussion and other members of the community shared their experiences and knowledge with regard to work camping.
Later, Jerry showed us how to make wind spinners out of aluminum cans
One section finished
Watch for Jerry's "How-To" video on YouTube or contact him directly for an appearance at a venue near you!

After breakfast, the community gathered
to learn and share experiences when traveling/camping/boondocking and medical services in Mexico. Those "in the know" put to rest any fear and trepidation we might have felt.
That afternoon, Rain shared her passion for recycling (Stumpy also posted about Rain's recycling methods on her blog)
Homer paid close attention, but seemed unaffected
Stumpy was curious, too
Dinner at sunset: pasta and meat sauce ala Suanne.
Upper Camp at Sunset

Early morning hike up Dome Rock. Look closely, you'll see Elena, Gary, Laurie and Silvianne.
Here they are! Well, two of them; I don't know where the other two went. Same shot, zoomed in.
Aficionados of Single Malt Scotch attended an educational experience in which they were able to taste both expensive brand names First Malt Scotch and obscure brands enabling them to compare and rate the bottles.
If you would like to participate in the 2nd Annual Single Malt Scotch Educational Experience you have a year to pick up either a really expensive or an obscure brand of Single Malt Scotch. Oh hell, just bring a bottle of scotch, next year. We're not that fussy!

Bob measures for a solar installation
Wednesday and Thursday saw a large exodus from our camp and Quartzsite, in general. Ten of us remain, enjoying the camaraderie and the great weather.
We're still suffering through 70-80 degree temperatures during the day. At night, it gets pretty chilly. The campfire helps and I personally, haven't turned my heat on in the RV. I am from tough New England stock and am a firm believer of piling on the blankets. As soon as the sun rises, it's all good!
At some point I lost track of days, dates and my camera. Dates given are approximate.
