It's a wonderful time of the year. You have the normal excitement of Christmas but you also have those RV friends that are heading this way for warmer weather. Everyone wants to get together for a meal, drinks, coffee or a party.
I saw my family doctor again today. He put me back on two medications for my infection of my voice box. Hopefully, I won't have to go back for a more invasive procedure and this will do the trick.
The only real restriction I have is to not talk. Now how do you go to a party and not talk? Bill has never said I've been at a loss for words but he was smiling when the doctor told us this.
This is going to be a very busy three weeks. We have five doctor appointments in the Valley before we leave for Parker. The Escapees Chapter 21 is drawn out in pencil but coming together nicely. There are still all the supplies to get for the rally. It's been more difficult than I thought to find beach stuff this time of the year. The beauty is no one really cares, they just like getting together and also meeting new people. Being a rally host is no big deal. Everything just sort of falls into place. If you haven't had the fun of being one, volunteer the next time someone needs one. I can't believe there are RVers out there that haven't heard of the Escapees, but if you are one of them, you can attend their events without being a member.
We are joining the Circling of the Wagons with the MOC in Quartzite right after the Parker Rally. This will be our first time with the MOC circle, but we are looking forward to it.
We haven't been over to storage except once to empty the refrigerator since I've been sick. I need to think about going over and seeing what we left in there when we parked it. I only know if Bill is looking for something to wear, that's what was left in the Mountaineer, aka "The Turtle". If I'm looking for an ingredient to cook with, I remember it's still in the trailer.
Boondocking in Quartzite usually means easy, fast meals. Since there aren't any great nearby stores a little thought needs to go in the stocking of the pantry and freezer.
I know I must be getting better, because I might have a slight case of hitch itch. Not my full blown case of it, but a small case of it.
