This morning we left Paradise Casino and did a bit of food shopping. We then stopped at a Laundromat, where we did the laundry and M appears to have attempted to jump start his modeling career:
Leaving Yuma, we drove about 15 miles west and north to find a location to camp until the warranty approvals for RV work have been received by the dealership. We passed some old mining structures in the Ogilby Hills:
We finally found a spot with the right amount of seclusion, phone connectivity, and flat enough terrain to launch my PPG. The cactus my parents purchased for us in Borrego Springs a couple weeks ago is doing quite well:
The ocotillo here are in bloom:
M and B found a couple jumps to ride their bikes over:
I set up my PPG and decided to go for a flight:
Liftoff of flight #34:
It was a lot of fun flying out over the area and seeing all the RVs. There must be over a hundred of them spread out over a pretty big area.
M practiced his kiting:
B gave kiting a try for the first time:
We were treated to an amazing sunset:
The kids dragged over a dead ocotillo and we had a nice campfire:
We’re looking forward to spending about a week out here.
