Quartzsite to Yuma

Before we left Quartzsite we attended the Parker 425 Race. It starts with a display of the various race cars on the streets of downtown Parker.
Then on Saturday the race is on 425 miles thru the desert. Bob, Jerry and Phil got up early and were at the race before daybreak. Judy and I joined them much later.

Still in the boondock training mode for Phil & Judy we headed to Ogilby Rd. where the power parachute group were gathering. We enjoyed watching them fly especially at sunset.

Jerry and Denise had never been to Los Algodones so we escorted them over and toured town.
Have to go to our favorite restaurant La Parella.

While we were at Ogliby we were invited by these nice people, John & Nina to join them for breakfast at the Quchan Casino. We use RVillage when we relocate and they found us on it.

We moved into Kofa Ko-op on our lot so we could attend the Annual Meeting.

While there Bob got a new toy to play with.

It wasn't all play. Bob wanted to get new Lithium batteries for the motorhome.
Starlight Solar had them and Bob wanted to do part of the work himself.

So he built this box for them to go in.
He also got to do a lot of the wiring and bought a new convertor.

It wasn't all work and no play. 
We went out to eat with friends several times.

Our old friends from the WIN's went to Prison Hill Brewery.

To Los Algodones with Glenda and Don.

The Geocache Group went to Da Boyz Pizza. There were 90 altogether. 
Our table had a few of them.

The excitement wasn't over. We got locked out of the motorhome. The latch broke and all our things were inside and the windows locked. We keep a key hidden in a bay but it wouldn't work.
Bob and Bob Torgler worked on it and finally Bob had to use a circle saw to saw thru the bolt/latch to get us in. We ordered a new lock then Bob made a new bolt and had repair people help him install it. He'll keep the new lock for when that repair breaks.
