Windy in Quartzsite

Oh My!

Oh My!

I have moved around several times while here in Quartzsite. Two days ago, I found a spot in the La Posa South LTVA, close to facilities where the dump and water fill are located. My plan was to experiment with my motorcycle trailer to supply water for my rig as I became gluttonous with showers. Now, I’m not even sure I will unload my motorcycle. The cold nights, relentless wind, and the limited supplies in a tourist town have got me to thinking about traveling to Yuma.

Yuma is only about five degrees warmer than here but it makes a difference to these old bones of mine. And besides the warmer weather, there is always the city itself. It is nice to buy groceries without paying the inflated prices of a small market, there are tons of fast-food places to eat, you can get hardware for projects on the rig, and it will be nice to see a movie once in awhile. The biggest problem with moving to Yuma is that the LTVA north of town has no cell signal for me. That’s kind of a deal breaker.

The nearest Walmart to Quartzsite is in Parker, 40 miles north of here. I rode my motorcycle there a few days ago but I didn’t enjoy the trip. Route 95 to Parker is a narrow two-lane road with a speed limit of 65 for most of the way. Of course you know that a speed limit of 65 means most everyone is driving 75 or 80. Route 95 has a lot of traffic, and with that much traffic drivers get impatient waiting to pass, making me uncomfortable when they think I should move over to the edge of the road so they can get by whether anyone is coming or not.

Old naked people!

Where I’m parked now is right across the wash from the nudist section of the LTVA. When I found this nice spot I wondered why there was no one parking here. As I walked around I came upon signs scattered along the boundary and on all roads warning that you may encounter nudity in this area. Their website talks about the lifestyle they believe in and emphasizes that there shall be no display or approval of sexual activity. That makes sense to me considering they are mostly retired people with bodies well past the sexual stage. I’m far enough away so that I’m not being offended and disgusted by their shameful activities. Why… I can just barely see them with my binoculars!

  1. What??? Retired people with bodies well past the sexual stage??? OMG, I hope not! LOL – Literally LingOL! And you definitely need better binoculars! haha I should move over there, I could use the entertainment. 🙂

    Yeah, I hear you about the weather. Even 4 or 5 degrees more would be nice. I wonder if it’s windy down in the Yuma area. Guess I’ll find out on Tuesday.

    You’re right. I don’t think there is no “fire in the furnace” just because you retire. I sometimes say something silly so I can laugh at myself in another statement.

    We may have to head to Costa Rica to find warm weather;)

    Probably not too many in the nude in this weather.

    I imagine the views in an old folks’ nudist colony is what brings their “sexual stage” to a screeching halt. The aging, retired bodies of the opposite sex walking around like that might be a pretty big turn off. Lol!

    Maybe you need to borrow my bike so it’s you getting impatient behind them.
