Chore day

Today was chore day. We headed into town to the Fortuna Hills area. On the list was about 3 weeks of laundry, fill 2 propane tanks and refill our drinking water containers. The truck also got a wash so it doesn’t look like a rolling dust pile any more. And just before heading back we stopped at Fry’s for some groceries. We like this area as pretty much everything we need is within one square mile.
We are also trying something a bit different this trip. I have rigged up a portable clothes line that we can use for drying our clothes. It was a bit late when we finally got stuff hung up but even with only about an hour and a half of daylight left, stuff dried pretty well. Single digit humidity will do that! I guess you could call this a Wind and Solar powered clothes dryer.

I almost expect to see the Roadrunner and Wile-E-Coyote come running by (Did you know the E stands for Ethelbert?). Those mountains in the background are called the Castle Dome mountains. You can also see a pretty large tethered aerostat near the top edge of this shot. It is located in the Yuma Proving Grounds about 30 Kms away from us. ( This one is used as a radar platform for border surveillance.

A bit of colour in the sunset tonight.
