Doing Our Share To Support The Economy

We spent the morning running some errands up in Parker, AZ this morning (about 30 miles North of Quartzsite) and enjoyed a nice sunny, warm day, even if it was a little windy.  Once we returned to "Q", we hit the big tent to make some purchases and finalize our choice of toad braking systems.

We bought the Air Force One braking system at a very good price and booked the installation.  The installer is coming to our site out in the desert on Friday instead of us having to fight our way through the traffic to the big tent area.  That is really nice and easy for us.

We picked up some LED lights for the Journey for about $10 less apiece than we've seen them anywhere else.  And Marti picked up some great Yellowbox sandals, her favorite brand.  We wandered around some of the vendors outside of the big tent and met blogger friends Kimberly and Jerry, who are working a vendor booth here.  We've followed their blog for some time and corresponded back and forth for a while.  Kimberly made us a great funnel cake, too.  What is it about fried dough and powdered sugar that makes them such a tasty treat?


There is so much to see here and so many interesting vendors you can walk the soles off your shoes.  We crossed the street to look at some other ones.  Some junk, some trinkets and some "must have" treasures (for somebody).  All for sale.


Marti found a great shirt she wanted to buy for me to memorialize my tank dumping experiences (disasters).


RVers find many ways to support their lifestyle.  We saw a couple that support their travels by picking through the trash dumpsters to find cans and plastic bottles that they can turn them in and collect the nickle deposit. It's a shame that the BLM doesn't provide any receptacles so people can recycle.


Sorry this post is late, but again we've been having fun getting and staying connected on the Internet.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.
