We topped off at the Flying J in Eloy, AZ, both the diesel and propane tanks. With our stay in the desert of Quartzsite, we ran the generator quite a bit and used propane for heat (it did get a little cool at night). I was pleasantly surprised that we didn't need as much or either item as I thought we would. Happiness is fewer gallons of diesel needed.
Originally, we planned on heading to the Famcamp at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, but...Semper Gumby (Always Flexible). We changed our plans when a phone call to them revealed the only site they had was in their dry camping area, we'd have to wait for someone in the hook up sites to leave.
We couldn't resist the call of full hook ups so we decided to splurge a little and booked two night at the Lazydays Campground instead. Yes, it is more per night than we budgeted, but they have a hot tub (actually two) and you know how much I like hot tubes. These bones were made for soaking... :c)
It is a huge campground and RV dealership. They even have one of these stores here.
What's not to love?
So we're all comfy and relaxed here. Tomorrow we have a couple of errands to run (watch out Mr. Sprint salesman, don't tell me I don't know where I went to elementary school!).
We crunched our budget numbers for January and we're only $400 over. We used a bit more propane than we anticipated (funny how it gets cold at night coming down the coast from the Northwest and into the desert) and we overdid it by eating out a lot. How can you turn down going with your Escapees group of friends to a fine dining establishment like Quartzsite's Grubstake? In retrospect, we should have passed on that meal.
We did spend some extra money on the food category, too, but much of it was to stock up the Journey's pantry and freezer. We're getting the hang of this full time life, and we've got plenty of time to perfect it. :c)
