Day 560: Back to the Wild

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:

M and B found a couple jumps to ride their bikes over:

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:

The kids dragged over a dead ocotillo and we had a nice campfire:
